|Description: HMS 'Thunderer' was one of the navy's first 'super-dreadnoughts'. Launched at Thames Ironworks in 1911, she went on to fight at the Battle of Jutland in 1916. Her armament consisted of ten 13.5-inch guns in pairs and sixteen four-inch guns. 'Thunderer' remained in service after the end of the Great War, but was eventually discarded under the terms of the Washington Treaty. She was used as a cadet training ship from 1921 until being sold for scrap on 17 December 1926.|
