From the Paper:

"Determined to eclipse the appointments of earlier Atlantic steam liners, White Star Lines set out in 1908 to build 3 ships, all of the same design, that would provide the company with a weekly east- and west- bound carrier service. These ships, the Olympic, the Titanic, and the Gigantic (later to become the Brittanic), were to have a passenger and cargo capacity which doubled that of the Cunard Line, White Star's main competitor in North Atlantic crossings. They were to be longer than Cunard's Lusitania and Mauretania by over 120 feet each, and heavier than those vessels by at least 12,000 tons."
