HMS Vanguard - Britains last battleship....

I didn't realize she was the "biggest battleship ever built in Britain"!

According to Janes, a bit heavier than Hood at "standard displacement", considerably heavier fully loaded. Then again, Hood was really a battle cruiser with added armour even if it was heavier than any of the RN's WW2 "real" battleships. 
Since any new battleship had to be able to sort out the other sides latest, there was a tendency for later designs to be steadily more capable.  This meant more speed, powerful weaponry and better protection.  To get more of everything with the same basic technology meant a bigger ship to carry it all.

The rig looks unbalanced with no head sails, wonder how well it tacks without the foresails to help.

Hello,


A Scale Model of the boat would not sail in even a very light wind.
Reason - - - there is NO Keel !!!!.

Reminds me very much of the 'Maltese Falcon' with that rig.

I lucked upon seeing the 'Falcon' moored off the Isle of Man a few years ago and was totally boggled when it sailed away under motor power, and then set its sails, all without a sign of human intervention!  :-))

See the sequence I shot there below.





[Later] Ah, there's a good reason for its similarity to the 'Falcon', they both use the 'Dyna Rig' technology for the masts and sails.
