The Battleship "H. M. S. Unicorn"

Tags: battleship | craft

This 18th century British destroyer carried 32 nine-pound guns. Details of her construction were published in Chapman's Memorandum of Ships in 1768. Quicker but not as heavily armed as battleships, destroyers were often dispatched on longer ocean-crossing missions.
