Plans of South Carolina Class Dreadnought Battleships
These plans show the South Carolina class battleships, the first American dreadnoughts. They were designed before HMS Dreadnought but took longer to complete. Their arrangement of eight 12in guns in four twin turrets, with superfiring pairs fore and aft was more sensible than on the Dreadnought, but they used triple expansion engines and were slower than the Dreadnought.
