The Bucharskiy Class Destroyer is being replaced by new, turbine driven, oil fired Destroyers


Bucharskiy Class Destroyer, laid down 1904
     Length, 72.5 m x Beam, 8.2 m x Depth, 2.3 m
          620 tonnes normal displacement (560 tonnes standard)
     Main battery:       2 x 10.0-cm
     QF battery:         1 x  3.7-cm
     Light battery:      4 x  1.3-cm
          Weight of broadside: 29 kg
     4 TT, 45.0 cm, in one quadruple mount
     10 tons depth charges/mines
     Hull unarmored
     Battery armor:
          Main, 2.5 cm shields
          QF, 2.5 cm shields 
     Maximum speed for 7249 indicated kw = 26.00 knots
          Approximate cruising radius, 1600 nm / 12 knots
     Typical complement: 62-81

                    Estimated cost, $308,000 (77,000)
          Remarks:
     Caution: Hull structure is subject to strain in open-sea
     conditions.
     Caution: Magazines and engineering spaces are very cramped,
     and lack adequate watertight subdivision.
     Caution: Delicate, lightwight machinery.
     Ship has slow, easy roll; a good, steady gun platform.
     Good seaboat; rides out heavy weather easily.

     Estimated overall survivability and seakeeping ability:
          Relative margin of stability: 1.50
          Shellfire needed to sink: 68 kg = 4.9 x 10.0-cm shells
               (Approximates weight of penetrating
               shell hits needed to sink ship,
               not counting critical hits)
          Torpedoes needed to sink: 0.2
               (Approximates number of 'typical'
               torpedo hits needed to sink ship)
          Relative steadiness as gun platform, 70 percent
               (50 percent is 'average')
          Relative rocking effect from firing to beam, 0.11
          Relative quality as a seaboat: 1.23

     Hull form characteristics:
          Block coefficient: 0.45
          Sharpness coefficient: 0.33
          Hull speed coefficient 'M' = 8.52
          'Natural speed' for length = 15.4 knots
          Power going to wave formation
               at top speed: 67 percent

     Estimated hull characteristics and strength:
          Relative underwater volume absorbed by
               magazines and engineering spaces: 202 percent
          Relative accommodation and working space: 97 percent

          Displacement factor: 21 percent
               (Displacement relative to loading factors)

          Relative cross-sectional hull strength: 0.47
               (Structure weight per square
               metre of hull surface: 111 kg)
          Relative longitudinal hull strength: 1.39
               (for 3.70 m average freeboard;
               freeboard adjustment +1.05 m)
          Relative composite hull strength: 0.52
