Hi all! When I started to draw this, I thought I was the only one going for a symmetrical solution, matching an ironclad with a bigger one, but evidently I am not. Well, that's what I have, so I post it: LT Conlan By 1865, the Thiarian Navy was an all-wooden operation. Five screw frigates, five scre...

D. Torpedo Craft 1. No.5-class A larger type of second class torpedo boat, also Austrian-designed, but based upon a German Schichau-prototype. Owing to their bigger size, they were better sea boats than the No.1-type, and faster and more heavily armed into the bargain. Nos. 5 through 8 were built at...

C. Gunboats 1. Otomi-Class A steel-hulled development of the Yaqui-class. They adopted Huasteco’s ram bow, and did away with the barquentine rig, retaining only some fore and aft sails. They also had a round stern, more beam and a revised armament; to be honest, there was little resemblance between ...

B. Cruisers 1. Puma-Class Although each of these three small cruisers differed from the others in size and armament, they are best treated as one class. The class ship Puma was laid down at Trieste in 1888 as a half-sister to the contemporary Austrian Tiger, herself based on the British-built Leopar...

Mexican Warships 1891 – 1907 A. Battleships 1. San Juan de Ulua This unique vessel bears the distinction to be the first battleship tailor-made to a Mexican requirement. While Rio Brazos was mostly Tegetthoff’s brainchild, San Juan de Ulua incorporated design input by his Imperial Majesty himself. M...

Hello again! Mexican Empire: B. Part II – 1891 to the Emperor’s death (1907) 8. Halcyon days Although the clash with the USA had ended in President Harrison successfully bluffing Maximilian into abandoning his aspirations on the channel project, the Mexican Empire reached the peak of its internal po...

Hi again Something obscure: Danubius 600-ton destroyer project Apparently a pre-project for the later successful Tatra-class, this destroyer would have toted a powerful gun battery of two 100mm and four 66mm guns, but only three 450mm torpedo tubes. Apart from appearance, size and armament, I have f...

Hi all! A little necropost (but with drawings, so probably OK): British A-, B-, and C-class destroyers / Palmer 27- and 30-knotters Early British destroyers were built to a broad Admiralty specifications, the particulars left to the builders. All had the same armament (1 - 76mm, 5 - 57mm and 2 - 457...

Hi again! Apart from some 19th century leftovers, the Austro-Hungarian fleet operated a total of 63 modern torpedo boats during the First World War. The initial class was the 24-strong Kaiman-Class. The type boat was ordered from Yarrow on 1904 and delivered in 1905; it was used as a template for 23...
