Armed Merchant Cruisers
All Armed Merchant Cruiser classes
The list is divided by navy, then ordered by commissioned date of each class (oldest first).
Please note that we list the classes by navies that initiated/owned the class. Often vessels of certain classes were then built for other nations (or lent), those ships are not visible here but only through the navies pages or by looking into each class.
