The Royal Navy's G-class of diesel/electric submarines were launched between 1914 and 1917, and intended for operations in the North Sea in World War I against German U-boats. A total of 14 boats were built at four yards: G1 to G5 by Chatham Dockyard, G6 & G7 by Armstrong Whitworth, G8 to G13 by Vickers, and G14 by Scott's on the Clyde. G15 was ordered from Samuel White's yard at Cowes, IoW, but cancelled. The class was distinguished by armament with the 21" torpedo, and the fitting of an electric oven in the galley. The G class had their bows raised during the war to increase buoyancy and improve seakeeping. The following is a list of aircraft carriers of the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom. ...
