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.
There have been several British 21-inch (533 mm) diameter torpedoes used by the Royal Navy since their first development just before the First World War.
The British L-class submarine was originally planned under the emergency war programme as an improved version of the British E-class submarine.
Ceremonial ship launching is the process of transferring a vessel to the water.
Dalmuir (Dail Mhoire) is an area on the western side of Clydebank, in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland.
A deck gun is a type of naval artillery mounted on the deck of a submarine.
The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition or CI engine), named after Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression).
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.
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.
The QF 4-inch gun Mk IVMk IV.
Rosyth Dockyard is a large naval dockyard on the Firth of Forth at Rosyth, Fife, Scotland, owned by Babcock Marine, which formerly undertook refitting of Royal Navy surface vessels and submarines.
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.
