In 1895 the first of the Majestic class battleships came into service.
This started a naval revolution as startling as the one that followed the launching of the DREADNOUGHT. For the first time 4 new sets of designs were put together in one ship making them what is now known as a PREDREADNOUGHT.
The four new technologies were high velocity main weapons, quick firing 6" mid calibre guns. face hardened armour, and telescopic gunsights.
The MAJESTICS were the first capital ships whose main weapons were effective in rough seas due to their high freeboard and good sea keeping qualities. The visual impact of these ships at that time cannot be imagined, but they must have been the same as the "star wars" weapons of today, and they made the British fleet supreme the world over.
