"Full Speed Ahead and Damn the Torpedoes"Edit

This article states, "Unlike the ship of the line, the battleships of the late 19th and early 20th centuries had significant vulnerability to torpedoes and mines..." Wooden warships were indeed vulnerable to torpedoes (although they what we would call mines today). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 108.171.131.189 (talk) 17:38, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Good point. I would take it to mean, before mines were invented, there was no hazard, but clarification would be good. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 17:44, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

HMS AgamemnonEdit

the caption for the diagram of HMS Agamemnon says that she was typical of later predreadnoughts, which is not true. There was ONE other class of predreadnoughts with an intermediate battery of similar caliber, and it was british as well. American and Italian Vessels had 8" secondary while Japanese had 10", only england used 9.2" I think the caption should be changed to say that she was typical of later british predreadnoughts.
