HMS Polyphemus

The Polyphemus was a real one-off, a Torpedo Ram, carrying a bow tube and four broadside tubes and a strengthened spur ram. For her own defence she carried six 1 inch calibre twin barrelled Nordenfelt Machine Guns. Although the spur ram was an integral part of the design, it was meant as a weapon of last resort
