HMS Kent (54) was a County-class heavy cruiser built for the Royal Navy in the late 1920s. She was the lead ship of the Kent subclass. After completion the ship was sent to the China Station where she remained until the beginning of the Second World War, aside from a major refit in 1937–38.[1]

She was built at Chatham Dockyard, and her engines were constructed by William Beardmore and Co.
