HMS Devonshire


DescriptionEdit

This class of six armoured cruisers was laid down in 1903 and showed some improvements compared to the preceding Monmouth class. A heavier main battery of 7.5" guns was installed to make them more effective against protected targets. They also carry heavier armour and have an increased endurance.
