Barrow-in-Furness, commonly known as Barrow, is a town and borough in Cumbria, England.
The beam of a ship is its width at the widest point as measured at the ship's nominal waterline.
There have been a number of 18 inch torpedoes in service with the United Kingdom.
The British C-class submarines were the last class of petrol engined submarines of the Royal Navy and marked the end of the development of the ''Holland'' class in the Royal Navy.
Ceremonial ship launching is the process of transferring a vessel to the water.
The displacement or displacement tonnage of a ship is its weight, expressed in long tons of water its hull displaces.
The draft or draught of a ship's hull is the vertical distance between the waterline and the bottom of the hull (keel), with the thickness of the hull included; in the case of not being included the draft outline would be obtained.
A drive shaft, driveshaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft (prop shaft), or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them.
An electric motor is an electrical machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy.
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
Laying the keel or laying down is the formal recognition of the start of a ship's construction.
Length overall (LOA, o/a, o.a. or oa) is the maximum length of a vessel's hull measured parallel to the waterline.
A naval rating is an enlisted member of a country's navy, subordinate to warrant officers and officers, and hence not conferred by commission or warrant.
A petrol engine (known as a gasoline engine in American English) is an internal combustion engine with spark-ignition, designed to run on petrol (gasoline) and similar volatile fuels.
The Royal Navy (RN) is the United Kingdom's naval warfare force.
Ship breaking or ship demolition is a type of ship disposal involving the breaking up of ships for either a source of parts, which can be sold for re-use, or for the extraction of raw materials, chiefly scrap.
A shipyard (also called a dockyard) is a place where ships are built and repaired.
A torpedo tube is a cylinder shaped device for launching torpedoes.
Vickers was a famous name in British engineering that existed through many companies from 1828 until 1999.
