HMS Claymore (BC-618) is a Reliant-class Battlecruiser within the Active Reserves.
Claymore was first brought into commission on 27 April 2016 under the command of CAPTJG Marcus Johnston, by order of BuShips, claiming Tempe, Arizona as her charter city, but claimed the entire American state of Arizona as its operating area. Her crew was formerly assigned to HMS Claymore (CA-51) and upgraded to this new vessel. She has participated in one Fleet Event, LepreCon, and the Tempe Library Comicon. They continued to expand, until they finally split into two ships, HMS Broadsword and HMS Claymore.
