» BIGGER BATTLESHIPS TO BE BUILT On Tuesday Princess Louise, the Duchess of Argyle, will launch his Majesty' first-class battle- ship Dominion at Barrow, and then the whole of the King Edward YII. class of batteships will be afloat. Their successors on the stocks are not yet started, and will not be until the commencement of another financial year, in April next. There are to be three of the new class, to be bnilt at Chatham, Portsmouth, and Devonport respectively, and they are to be "improved" King Edwards. The limit of size and weight in battleships and armament, says the Pall Pall Gazette, does not appear to have yet been reached, for the new vessels are to be of no less than 18,000 tons, or about 1,500 tons heavier than the King Edward class. They will be the first battleships of the new designer at the Admiralty (Mr. Philip Watts), and the most notable departure in their construction will be seen in the armour- plating for the sides of the hull. An armour belt of lOin. Krupp steel, tapering away to 6in., will be continued the whole length of the broadside. This is the first time this has been attempted in the battleships of any country. Four submerged torpedo tubes, four 50-ton wire guns, eight quick-firing 27- ton guns, and twelve 6-inch guns are included in the armament—a battery of enormous capacity. A speed of nineteen knots, in spite of immense weight, will be stipulated for.
