Cool charts. Where did you find them? Are there any more at the source?

I found them on Reddit. This is the source site - http://usnhistory.navylive.dodlive.mil/

Cool site, but I didn't see anymore infographics like those.

The cruiser chart is missing the Marbleheads.
A great class inspired by the govenors of Massachusetts.
“Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out until too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along”.  Terry Pratchett.

During filming of Airplane, Leslie Nielsen used a whoopee cushion to keep the cast off-balance. Hays said that Nielsen "played that thing like a maestro"

Tallulah Bankhead: "I'll come and make love to you at five o'clock. If I'm late, start without me."

Master Chiefs are sneaky, dastardly, and snarky miscreants who thrive on the tears of Ensigns and belly dancers.   Admiral Gerry Bogan.

I think the graphic was meant to show more notable ways that USN cruisers changed over the years rather than include each and every class. There are no Chester- or St-Louise-class ships on the list either.

2 Million pounds for Dreadnaught in 1905.
Would be roughly 218 Million pounds today.  Might be able to cover an F35/

That cruiser chart is cool, but that's some shitty Photoshop skills, making the bottom of it unreadable.

Good read - http://breakingdefense.com/2016/01/navys-dilemma-what-kind-of-presence/

I like this guy:

Quote
“Folks, our job is to kill people and break their toys,” the Navy’s director of surface warfare, Rear Adm. Peter Fanta, said to laughter and applause at the Surface Navy Association’s annual conference. “There’s nothing else in the world that matters. That’s why you have a Navy.”

“I got it,” Fanta went on. “There’s presence — [but] presence without lethality is impotence.”

Not ours. Most of our modern cruisers/destroyers have a total complement of around 300-350. The Zumwalts will only have about 150 due to the high level of automation.
