HMS Victoria was the lead ship in her class of two battleships of the Royal Navy. On 22 June 1893, she collided with HMS Camperdown near Tripoli, Lebanon, during maneuvers and quickly sank, killing 358 crew members, including the commander of the British Mediterranean Fleet, Vice-Admiral Sir George Tryon.
Kongo was actually built by Vickers (and was
the last Japanese capital ship to be built outside of Japan), while the
remaining three were built in Japanese yards. During the inter-war
years, all of them were upgraded in terms of propulsion and protection,
and were re-rated as battleships. KONGO is the only IJN battleship sunk by a submarine during the war and the last battleship ever sunk by a submarine.
