What does the britannic mean?
The sister ship to the Titanic was called the Britannic. The Britannic sank in 1916 in only 55 minutes of it exploding. The cause is unknown ,but what is known is that it momentarily passed through a battle zone. This posses a big shock because the Britannic had had a bunch of improvements to stop this from happening.
Britannic was the third and final ship of the Olympic class. Problems found in her sister ships were corrected in the new design. Obviously, more lifeboats and new davits were added, and "watertight" bulkheads were sealed at the top. But designs were also changed. Britannic was made 2 feet wider than Olympic and Titanic, and her aft well deck was enclosed with a small promenade. Thus Britannic was larger than Titanic.
HMHS Britannic, the sister ship of RMS Olympic and RMS Titanic, was launched just before the start of the First World War and was quickly put to use as a hospital ship. In that role she struck a mine off the Greek island of Kea on the 21st November 1916, and sank with the loss of 30 lives. The Britannic was sunk by an explosive mine in world war 1. it was on a coast…
The Titanic had two sister ships: Olympic and Britannic. The Olympic was the first to sail, then The Titanic, then the Britannic. ++++++ Britannic was sunk by enemy action in WW1. Olympic had a successful, uneventful life as intended, as a trans-oceanic ferry (these ships were not built as cruise-liners, as that concept did not exist then), and was scrapped in the 1930s.
No. The White Star Line made a line of ships. The Titanic, The Britannic, and the Olympic. The Titanic and the Britannic sank but the Olympic is in storage. The Olympic did not sink it was called old reliable and served for 25 yrs before being scrapped. It was the most successful of its two other sister ships, the Titanic and Britannic.
