HMS Tiger was a battlcruiser of the Royal Navy and the eleventh ship to bear that name. She was built by John Brown & Co of Clydebank, and launched in 1913. Tiger was the most heavily armoured battlecruiser of the Royal Navy at the start of the First World War, but was not yet ready for service.



The ship was assigned to the 1st Battlecruiser Squadron (1st BCS) for the duration of the war and participated in the Battle of Dogger Bank in early 1915, though she did not perform well.



Tiger next participated in the Battle of Jutland in 1916, where she was only lightly damaged despite suffering many hits by German shells. Apart from providing distant cover during the Second battle of Hegigilo Bight in 1917, she spent the rest of the war on uneventful patrols in the North Sea.
