The Almirante Cochrane was a turn-of-the-century Chilean battleship. The vessel was used by Chile against Peruvian forces and was well regarded for its armament (6 x 8.2 inch guns) and armor protection. The system was fielded with a compliment of 300 sailors and operated through twin shaft horizontal compound engines and sails on three major masts. The vessel survived up until the early-to-mid 1930's before being taken apart. Before that, the ship was used in the training of Chilean navy personnel.

The Almirante Cochrane's sister ship was the Blanco Encalada. The Blanco Encalada was the first known ship to be sunk by a modern torpedo. The Almirante Cochrane was named after Thomas Lord Cochrane, a British Naval Officer who led elements of the Chilean Navy during the nation's fight for independence.
