To avoid having to enter the following code to achieve the proper link and italics:

Code: [[CCS-class battlecruiser|''CCS''-class battlecruiser]]

Result: CCS-class battlecruiser


Most cases we want to provide a direct link to the article with the minimum of fuss.

Code: {{Class|CCS|battlecruiser}}

Result: CCS-class battlecruiser

Sometimes, we don't want to use the ship's type as the follow on text.

Code: {{Class|CCS|battlecruiser|ship}}

Result: CCS-class ship

If we want to leave out the follow-on text altogether, we make the third parameter empty.

Code: {{Class|CCS|battlecruiser|}} and the text that comes after.

Result: CCS-class and the text that comes after.
