Plans of Swiftsure Class Battleships

Plans of Swiftsure Class Battleships
These plans show the two Swiftsure class battleships (Swiftsure and Triumph), originally ordered by Chile but purchased by the Royal Navy to prevent then falling into Russian hands. As a result they fell outside the mainstream of British battleship design, then focused on the King Edward VII class battleships, armed with a mix of 12in, 9.2in and 6in guns. The Swiftsure class ships were more lightly armed, with four 10in guns in twi turrets fore and aft, fourteen 7.5in guns (seven on each side, two on the same level as the main guns and five in a central battery one deck lower) and fourteen 14-pounder guns.
