[51], The German battlecruisers made their own turn north in pursuit,[52] but Beatty's ships maintained full speed, and gradually moved out of range. She normally displaced 28,430 long tons (28,890 t) and 33,260 long tons (33,790 t) at deep load. The Tiger refit took over five years and cost over £13 million. [56], The British lost sight of the Germans until HMS Castor spotted smoke to the west-northwest at 8:05 p.m., then identified and engaged several German torpedo boats. Shortly afterward Lion lost her remaining dynamo to the rising water which knocked out all remaining light and power.

[21] A Mark VII* Dumaresq in the armoured tower was trained on the target to supply bearing data to one transmitting station for use in plotting and calculations, and a second station was fitted for the ship's secondary armament,[22] although a pair of fire-control directors for those guns, one for each broadside, were not fitted until 1915.

The aft conning tower had 6-inch walls and a 3-inch cast steel roof. By 7:35 the Germans had spotted Beatty's force and Hipper ordered a turn to the south at 20 knots (37 km/h; 23 mph), believing that this would suffice if the ships that he saw to his north-west were British battleships and that he could always increase speed to Blücher's maximum speed of 23 knots (43 km/h; 26 mph) if they were British battlecruisers.

"The Design and Construction of the Battlecruiser Tiger". Tiger started out as Bellerophon; she was laid down in 1941 at the John Brown Shipyard as part of the Minotaur class of light cruisers. Bellerophon was renamed Tiger in 1945, and was launched, partially constructed, on 25 October 1945. They generally ranged from 1 to 1.5 inches (25 to 38 mm) in thickness. Their benefit would be more as platforms to extend the range and endurance of the Harriers and as a refuelling stop on the way back to the carriers, rather than as somewhere to operate offensive missions from, or as somewhere to place a pair of Sea Harriers as an extended-range Combat Air Patrol ahead of the two carriers (and reducing their own exposure to air strikes), but the need to take off vertically rather than the use of a ski-jump severely reduced the Harriers' endurance and weapons carrying capability, and in late May 1982 after the loss of the destroyer Sheffield and the Argentinian cruiser General Belgrano the refits were stopped. Opens image gallery. In the meantime Blücher had been heavily damaged by fire from all the other battlecruisers; her speed had dropped to 17 knots (31 km/h; 20 mph) and her steering gear had been jammed.

The idea of flying a Sopwith Pup off the back of a battlecruiser seems absolutely terrifying. Whilst there was speculation that their 6-inch guns would be useful for shore bombardment, the real reason for their potential deployment was the size of their flight decks (at the time the third largest in the Royal Navy after the aircraft carriers Hermes and Invincible), and the potential to use them as mobile forward operating and refuelling bases for Task Force Harriers.
