There are many different ships in the world’s navies today. They all have different applications and some classifications are exclusive to certain countries. Different countries have put their effort into different kinds of ships and some have invested in almost all of them. Strictly Speaking, in recent years the distinction between these ship types have become increasingly blurred. During World War II, cruisers had displacements ranging from 6,000 to 15,000 tons, while destroyers were around 2,000 to 2,200 tons. Today, Arleigh Burke-class "destroyers" have a displacement of over 7,000 tons, while Ticonderoga-class cruisers are barely larger at 9,000 tons. A strong argument could be made that the current U.S. Navy, rather than having 22 cruisers and 62+ destroyers, actually has 84+ cruisers and no destroyers.
