HMS Boadicea


This class of small cruiser was designed to operate with destroyer groups. Their purpose was to scout ahead of the group and engage enemy destroyers with their heavier weaponry. These cruisers were the first to be equipped with turbine machinery, a feature which became standard for all following classes. To achieve maximum speed, armour protection and armament were reduced.
