     Main battery:       4 x 19.0-cm (2 x 2)
     Secondary battery: 10 x 19.0-cm
     QF battery:        20 x  5.7-cm
          Weight of broadside: 1383 kg
     2 TT, 46.0 cm (submerged)
     Main belt, 20.0 cm; bow and stern, 12.0 cm
     Upper belt, 7.0 cm
     Torpedo bulkhead, 5.0 cm
     Armor deck, average 6.0 cm
     Conning tower, 20.0 cm
     Battery armor:
          Main, 20.0 cm / secondary, 16.0 cm
          QF, 5.0 cm 
     Maximum speed for 23265 shaft kw = 23.00 knots
          Approximate cruising radius, 7000 nm / 12 knots
     Typical complement: 660-858

                    Estimated cost, $4.388 million (1.097 million)
          Remarks:
     Relative extent of belt armor, 115 percent of 'typical' coverage.
     Ship has slow, easy roll; a good, steady gun platform.
     Good seaboat; rides out heavy weather easily.
     Magazines and engineering spaces are cramped, with poor
     watertight subdivision.
     Main deck secondary guns subject to being washed down
     in a seaway.
     Main deck QF guns subject to being washed down in a seaway.
