Launched on the 22nd of June 1742 to augment the fleet of bomb vessels during the war of the Austrian succession, the Granado was a vessel with exceptionally fine lines, originally intended as a Sloop with the task of policing merchant traffic off the French coast and intercepting smugglers and pirates off the east coast of Britain, she was converted into a bomb vessel in 1756.
The Granado performed admirably in her new role and was victorious in several battles.
She was fitted with two 13 inch mortars, 4-pounder carriage and anti personnel swivel guns.
