Now, if I had planned this fleet from the start, I'd have probably grabbed those two BBs that in OTL went to Greece...

Length, 238 ft x Beam, 29.0 ft x Depth, 12.0 ft

1302 tons normal displacement (1138 tons standard)

Main battery: 2 x 4.00-inch / 102mm

Secondary battery: 4 x 1.57-inch / 40mm

QF battery: 3 x 0.98-inch / 25mm

Weight of broadside: 73 lbs

4 TT, 18.0"

Hull unarmored

C.T., 0.5 inches

Battery armor:

Main, 1.0" shields / secondary, 0.5" shields

QF, 0.2" shields

Maximum speed for 27163 shp = 29.00 knots

Approximate cruising radius, 3500 nm / 10 kts

Typical complement: 108-141

Estimated cost, $683,000 (£171,000)

Remarks:

Caution: Hull structure is subject to strain in open-sea

conditions.

Caution: lacks seaworthiness -- very limited seakeeping ability.

Caution: Magazines and engineering spaces are very cramped,

and lack adequate watertight subdivision.

Caution: Delicate, lightwight machinery.

Ship has quick, 'lively' roll; not a steady gun platform.

Cramped ship; poor crew accommodation, limited working space.
