HMS Invincible (BC-416) was a Reliant-class battlecruiser assigned to Second Fleet. Commanded by CAPTSG John Neitz, RMN, Invincible was commissioned with BuShips Directive 1205-01 and its charter city was Minneapolis, Minnesota.


Invincible's crew traced its lineage to HMS Merlin, which was the first ship launched in Second Fleet, and one of the earliest chapters in TRMN.

Cruiser Division 211 was the first echelon unit formed in The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. (TRMN). Invincible was the division flagship, with Merlin and HMS Samurai as the other ships. [1]

In October 2012, Battlecruiser Squadron 21[2] was formed with Invincible as its flagship.

In 2013, Invincible was decommissioned and its namesake superdreadnought HMS Invincible (SD-455) was launched, with the battlecruiser crew transferring to the superdreadnought.
