I have started the refit of the US Battleship pages by rebuilding the main index to make it easier
to use. The page has both alphabetical and numerical listings and class overviews for all US Battleship classes.
The US Battleship pages are the oldest on the site and were created with the old format (when I was a
young webmaster who did not know what he was doing). Please be patient as this will take some time to
complete. I have received new photos and I will be adding the builder's data for each ship.

I have also added a class overview for the Japanese Minekaze Class Destroyers. This format will be
the the new format for all class overviews so I would like some feedback from you on how it looks
and if the information is of value.
