  • HMS Tartar was a Tribal-class destroyer of the Royal Navy that saw service in most of the naval theaters of World War II. She had an eventful career, eventually receiving the nickname 'Lucky Tartar' due to her numerous escapes from dangerous situations. She was one of only four of the sixteen Royal Navy-operated Tribal-class destroyers to survive the war. The ship displacement 1,891 long tons (1,921 t) at standard load and 2,519 long tons (2,559 t) at deep load. Overall length of 377 feet or 114.9m, a beam of 36 feet 6 inches (11.13 m) and a draught of 11 feet 3 inches (3.43 m). Powered by two Parsons geared steam turbines, each driving one propeller shaft using steam provided by three Admiralty three-drum boilers. A maximum speed of 36 knots (67 km/h; 41 mph). The ship carried enough fuel to have a range of 5,700 nautical miles (10,600 km; 6,600 mi) at 15 knots (28 km/h; 17 mph). The ships' complement consisted of 190 officers and ratings. 
  • The primary armament of the Tribal-class destroyer was eight quick firing 4.7 inch 120mm Mark X11 guns in four super firing twin gun mounts. The ship was fitted with a single above-water quadruple mount for 21 inch (533mm) torpedoes and also provided with one of a duct charge RACK and and two throwers for self-defense. Twenty depth charges were the peacetime allotment, but this increased to 30 during wartime. Authorized as one of nine Tribal-class destroyers under the 1936 Naval Estimates, Tartar was the seventh ship of her name to serve in the Royal Navy. 
  • After commissioning, she was assigned to the 2nd Tribal Destroyer Flotilla of the Home Fleet.
