Ruby

HMS Ruby of the Acorn class


DescriptionEdit

The Acorn class, also known as H class, returned to oil-firing after the preceding Beagle or G class had briefly re-introduced coal-firing after the Admiralty had voiced their concern for the availability of oil in times of war and the unsatisfactory range of the Tribal class. The Acorns are considerably smaller than the Tribal class and retains its small range, but carries a stronger armament in artillery and torpedoes.
