Brittish Battleship HMS Rodney 1:1 (1941)

HMS Rodney was one of two Nelson-class battleships built for the Royal Navy in the mid-1920s. The ship was named after Admiral Lord Rodney. The Nelsons were unique in British battleship construction, being the only ships to carry a main armament of 16-inch (406 mm) guns, and the only ones to carry all the main armament forward of the superstructure. As her superstructure was located aft of midships like RN fleet oilers whose names carried the …’ol’ suffix, she was sometimes derisively referred to as “Rodnol”. Commissioned in 1927, Rodneyserved extensively in the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean during the Second World War.

[FR] Le HMS Rodney était un des deux cuirassés de la classe Nelson construits pour la Royal Navy durant les années 1920. Le navire fut nommé en l’honneur de l’Amiral Lord Rodney. Les Cuirassés Nelson eurent une configuration unique, devenant les seuls cuirassés a avoir leur armement principal de 16 pouces (406 mm) devant la superstructure. Etant donné que la superstructure était localisé sur le centre arrière du navire comme les pétroliers de l’époque qui possédaient un suffixe en “ol” il fut parfois nommé en dérision “Rodnol”. Commissionné en 1927, le Rodney servit intensivement dans la mer Méditerranée et l’océan Atlantique durant la seconde guerre mondiale.
