THE HMS IRON DUKEEdit
A behemoth armed to the teeth with ten 340mm guns and a plethora of other guns, the HMS Iron Duke was the first of the super-dreadnought class battleships coming out of the dockyards in Portsmouth. She saw action at the Battle of Jutland where she engaged several German battleships and sank a number of destroyers. In 1918 flying-off platforms for planes were intalled on the top of two turrets.
