Neptune Class (1881) BB

HMS Neptune was completed as a class of one. She was ordered as the Indepencia for the Brazilian Government but was taken over during the Russo-Turkish War crisis. 

She was a very unsatisfactory design. She had two gun turrets but had a forecastle, and a poop which meant the turrets could only fire on the beam. She was also fitted with trunk engines when triple expansion steam was being fitted in all contemporary ships.
