- A generalised warship of considerable size built around steam or gas turbine propulsion and carrying a range of weaponry. Vessels of this type have traditionally been the norm in the Royal Navy on account of their ability to operate effectively either independently or as part of a larger formation. In consequence, they have varied widely in size between classes, notably in size, gun calibre and the degree of armour protection. They have rarely been fitted for anti-submarine operations.
