The design works reasonably well in Springsharp. Probably, if had used turbines and oil fuel, it would have been very good. I may try that, yet. The ship has 4-9.2in/50, 10-7.5in/50, and 16-12pdr QF guns. The armour basis is 6in. The displacement is a bit high, but other wise, the ship is reasonably good. Of course, the machinery is light, although the boilers are coal-fired and the machinery is reciprocating. This is the Springsharp report:
