Built to defend Britain in the war that was clearly coming, the King George V-class of battleships compromised only with their main armaments which were reduced to 14 inch guns to fulfil treaty obligations. However, by mounting ten of them, the King George V could pack a fearsome punch. It was also very fast for such a well-armoured ship. The King George V served successfully in many campaigns, including the invasions of Sicily and Italy and finished the war in the Pacific fleet.
