The appearance of the torpedo in the second half of the nineteenth century posed a threat to battleships, and many powers, including Spain, built great number of small torpedo boats believing that they would be a cheap way to secure coastal defense.

The Rigel (built in Bremen in 1883) was the first torpedo boat with automotive torpedoes of Armada Española (Spanish Navy)

In the Spain - USA war of 1898 was used for coastal defence in the Mediterranean.

The Proserpina was the last ship of the Furor destroyer class of the Armada Española (Spanish navy). The Furor class was similar to the units of the A class, or 27 knotters. Th Proserpina was of the second series (subclass Pluton) with littel diferences in the size, armament, and machinery.

The Proserpina was commisioned in 1898 and incorpored to the "Escuadra de Reserva" ot the Admiral Camara and sail to Philippines, but twas recalled for coastal defence and no fight in the war. Was retired and scrapped in 1931.

Thanks for your offer. I usually ask for help from my daughter, who is almost bilingual, but not always are accessible. Of course, I use Google Translator Deepl as help.

Thanks also for the review.

Hi Yqueleden!

Great destroyer with fine detailing. Underwater hull shading forward looks somewhat plain, could use some curvature. Otherwise, I find no fault. Always good to have more people in the bucket who concentrate on the pre-WWI era.

Greetings
GD
