HMS Inflexible

Several ships of the Royal Navy have been called HMS Inflexible.

An early HMS Inflexible was a ship of the line. Her crew seized the ship during a mutiny at the Nore in 1797.

A later HMS Inflexible was one of the last battleships to have sails, and one of the first to have underwater torpedo tubes.

The most recent HMS Inflexible was built shortly before the First World War and a member of the first class of battlecruisers . She fought in the Battle of the Falkland Islands, at Jutland and in the Dardanelles.
