HMS Rodney was one of two Nelson-class battleships, the other being HMS Nelson. The class was named after Admiral Lord Nelson, a renowned British naval hero.

The Nelson-class battleships were unique in their design, featuring an "all-forward" arrangement of the main armament, with three triple gun turrets placed forward of the superstructure.

HMS Rodney was laid down at the Cammell Laird shipyard in Birkenhead on December 28, 1922, and launched on December 17, 1925.

The primary armament of HMS Rodney consisted of three triple gun turrets, each housing 16-inch (406 mm) guns. This design allowed for a concentrated forward firepower.

Secondary armament included 6-inch (152 mm) guns for anti-surface and anti-aircraft defence.

HMS Rodney was commissioned into the Royal Navy on November 10, 1927.

During World War II, HMS Rodney was involved in various notable actions. One of the most significant was her participation in the sinking of the German battleship Bismarck in May 1941. Rodney, along with HMS King George V and other British ships, engaged Bismarck, leading to its eventual sinking.

After the war, HMS Rodney underwent a refit but was eventually decommissioned in 1948.

The ship was scrapped in 1949.

HMS Rodney had a notable career, particularly during World War II, and played a crucial role in some of the major naval engagements of the time. The Nelson-class battleships, including HMS Rodney, were unique in design and represented a distinctive chapter in the evolution of battleship construction.
