[EN] HMS Warspite was a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship built for the Royal Navy during the early 1910s. Her thirty-year career covered both world wars and took her across the Atlantic, Indian, Arctic and Pacific Oceans. She participated in the Battle of Jutland during the First World War as part of the Grand Fleet. Other than that battle, and the inconclusive Action of 19 August, her service during the war generally consisted of routine patrols and training in the North Sea.

During the Second World War, she was involved in several major engagements, including battles in the North Sea and Mediterranean, earning her the most battle honours ever awarded to an individual ship in the Royal Navy. For this and other reasons Warspite gained the nickname the "Grand Old Lady" after a comment made by Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham in 1943 while she was his flagship.

When she was launched in 1913 the use of oil as fuel and untried 15-inch guns were revolutionary concepts in the naval arms race between Britain and Germany, a considerable risk for Winston Churchill, then First Lord of the Admiralty, and Admiral John Fisher who had advocated the design. However, the new "fast battleships" proved to be an outstanding success during the First World War. Warspite was refitted twice between the wars, but advances in technology and the cumulative effects of battle damage relegated her to the role of shore bombardment towards the end of the Second World War. Decommissioned in 1945, she ran aground under tow in 1947 on rocks near Prussia Cove, Cornwall, and was eventually broken up nearby.



[FR] Le HMS Warspite était un cuirassé de classe Queen Elizabeth construit pour la Royal Navy au début des années 1910. Sa carrière de trente ans a couvert les deux guerres mondiales et l'a amenée à traverser les océans Atlantique, Indien, Arctique et Pacifique. Il a participé à la bataille du Jutland pendant la Première Guerre mondiale dans le cadre de la Grande Flotte. Outre cette bataille et l'action non concluante du 19 août, son service pendant la guerre consistait généralement en patrouilles de routine et en entraînement en mer du Nord.

Au cours de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il a participé à plusieurs engagements importants, y compris des batailles en mer du Nord et en Méditerranée, ce qui lui a valu le plus grand nombre d'honneurs de guerre jamais accordés à un navire de la Royal Navy. C'est pour cette raison et pour d'autres encore que Warspite a été surnommée la " Grand Old Lady "(Grand Vieille Dame) après un commentaire fait par l'amiral Sir Andrew Cunningham en 1943 alors qu'elle était son vaisseau amiral.

Lorsqu'il a été lancé en 1913, l'utilisation de pétrole comme carburant et les canons de 15 pouces non éprouvés étaient des concepts révolutionnaires dans la course aux armements navals entre la Grande-Bretagne et l'Allemagne, un risque considérable pour Winston Churchill, alors Premier Lord de l'amirauté, et pour l'amiral John Fisher qui avait défendu le concept. Cependant, les nouveaux "cuirassés rapides" se sont avérés être un succès remarquable pendant la Première Guerre mondiale. Le Warspite a été modernisé à deux reprises entre les deux guerres, mais les progrès technologiques et les effets cumulatifs des dommages de guerre l'ont relégué au rôle de bombardement cotier jusqu'a la fin de la seconde guerre mondiale. Mis hors service en 1945, il s'est échoué sous remorquage en 1947 sur des rochers près de Prussia Cove, en Cornouailles, et a finalement été démantelé à proximité.

Hey, I love your builds!

Just wondering, how do you keep the iron trap doors from closing without Redstone?
Is it some building trick or are you using something else?

Really love all of your ships! Always enjoy when you put up a new one, personally i download the map to the Java edition, fly around the ship, and rebuild block for block onto a Bedrock world on my Xbox one. After building a few of them, i love how detailed and accurate they are, no one else does it better! Also have you thought about doing the Admiral Kuznetsov by any chance? (sorry this was a late comment)
