HMS Conqueror

HMS Conqueror was built at Chatham Dockyard (as was HMS HERO ) She was laid down on the 28th April 1879 and launched 8th September 1881 and completed march 1886. she was ordered under the naval estimates of 1878 - 1879. and was basically an enlarged version of HMS Rupert.  But both ships were to small for overseas duties as they had poor stability and rolled heavily and during bad weather could only make about 10 knots. So spent most of their working life as Gunnery  training ships. 

Displacement: 6,200 tons,  Speed 14 knots, Compliment: 330, Armament: Two 12-inch Guns , four 6 - inch guns,  seven 6 pounder Quick firing guns,  Five  3pounder quick firing guns and six 14-inch torpedo tubes.
