HMS Terror was 102 feet long, 27 feet wide. She was armed with two long six-pounders, eight twenty-four pounders, and two mortars, a 10 inch and a 13 inch. She could fire a round from each mortar every five minutes.

The Terror saw war service in the 1st Battle of Copenhagen in 1801 and War of 1812 against the United States.

Like highly specialized warships, the Terror was expensive to fit out and maintain. Fortunately, because of her extremely strong hull to withstand the recoil of the mortars, she was converted in time of peace to explore the Antarctic region, where pack ice and iceberg were a constant menace. The volcano Mount Terror on Ross Island in Antarctica was named after the ship, instead of vice-versa.

The expedition spanned three seasons from 1840 to 1843.

The 2008 novel Arctic Drift uses the Terror and the Erebus as part of the plot as well as the establishing backstory. The two ships are also featured in the Doctor Who Audio Drama story Terror of the Arctic. They are so mentioned by Captain Nemo in  20000 Leagues Under the Sea on background to establish the difficulty of attaining the South Pole. Terror features heavily in Dan Simmons's 2007 novel The Terror
