The Kaiser class battleship is a class of five battleships built in Germany prior to World War I and which served in the German Imperial Navy during that war. They were the first German battleships to feature turbine engines and superfiring turrets. The Kaiser class battleships were broader in the beam and better laid out than their British contemporaries, meaning their guns had wider arcs of fire and could offer a full ten gun broadside without straining the ship. All five ships saw action during World War I and four were present during the Battle of Jutland. All five were scuttled at Scapa Flow on 21 June 1919.Kaiser class battleships: Kaiser; Friedrich der Grosse; Kaiserin; Prinzregent Luitpold; Konig Albert.
