Wallpaper Description:
HMS Vanguard was a British fast battleship built during the Second World War and commissioned after the end of the war. She was the biggest and fastest of the Royal Navy's battleships, the last battleship to be launched in the world, and the only ship of her class.

The Royal Navy anticipated being outnumbered by the combined German and Japanese battleships in the early 1940s, and had therefore started building the Lion-class battleships. However the time-consuming construction of the triple-16-inch turrets for the Lion-class would delay their completion until 1943 at the earliest. The British had enough 15-inch (381 mm) guns and turrets in storage to allow one ship of a modified Lion-class design with four twin-15-inch turrets to be completed faster than the Lion-class vessels that had already been laid down.

Work on Vanguard was started and stopped several times during the war, and her design was revised several times during her construction to reflect war experience. These stoppages and changes prevented her from being completed before the end of the war.

Armament:
4 twin BL 15-inch (381 mm) guns
8 twin QF 5.25-inch (133 mm) dual-purpose guns
10 sextuple, 1 twin, 11 single 40 mm Bofors AA guns

Displacement:
44,500 long tons (45,200 t) (standard)
51,420 long tons (52,250 t) (deep load)
Length: 814 ft 4 in (248.2 m)
Beam: 108 ft (32.9 m)
Draught: 36 ft (11 m) (deep load)
Installed power:
130,000 shp (97,000 kW)
8 Admiralty 3-drum boilers
Propulsion: 4 shafts; 4 steam turbine sets
Speed: 30 knots (56 km/h; 35 mph)
Range: 8,250 nautical miles (15,280 km; 9,490 mi) at 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph)
Complement:1,975
