Originally designed as a "Large Light Cruiser" to attack German interests in the Baltic sea, during WW1, Furious was equipped, from the start of her long naval career, with an aircraft flying-off deck in place of the forward 18" gun turret. By 1918, as modelled, a second landing on deck had been added in place of the aft turret. In this form Furious's aircraft raided the Zepplin sheds at Tondern. As turbulence from the funnel affected the handling of aircraft, when landing the ship was converted to a flush decked aircraft carrier and later served in WW2 and survived to be scrapped in 1948. A fine old lady!
