Olympic was the first of the three ships built and was the largest ship in the world at its time. It lived on through 24 years of service and a troopship and passenger liner until White Star Line merged with the Cuncard Line in 1934.

Britannic is the largest ship on the ocean floor today and is in one piece. The mine or torpedo (whichever one the ship hit) did not have a strong enough impact to break the bow from the stern showing it had stabily. Mechanical issues and careless staffing caused the sinking after the initial torpedo impact.

Titanic had many issues including a list to port 20 degrees (meaning it naturally turned left without turning the wheel). This may suggest why it almost wrecked into the SS New York as it was being launched on its maiden voyage.
