Terror, a 370-ton torpedo boat destroyer, was built in Scotland in 1896. During the Spanish-American War, she crossed the Atlantic with Admiral Cervera's squadron, but was unable to proceed to Cuba. Terror continued in service after the war, and was not disposed of until about 1925.
This page features a view of a destroyer that may be Terror.
