Also known as the County class, the Kents were built in 1928. They were notable for a failed attempt to give their main armament a useful antiaircraft capability, by designing the turrets so that the main guns could be elevated to 70°. Their armor protection was originally badly arranged and barely adequate against 6" gunfire, constituting just 10% of the displacement, but was considerably increased during modernization in 1936-1937. They were disliked by the Royal Navy because they had large crews and were unsuited for "showing the flag," the Navy's primary peacetime mission.
