Arrogant Class (1898) CC

The four ships of the Arrogant Class were 2nd Class Protected Cruisers, part of the 1895 construction programme.

They were a variant of the Eclipse Class (1897) shorter and wider to improve manoeuvrability, with a ram bow.

Like the Eclipse they were re-armed with a uniform battery of 6in guns.

Gladiator was lost in a collision 1908, Arrogant became a depot ship 1911, Furious reduced to harbour service 1912.

Vindictive served as a cruiser in WW1 and took part in the Zeebrugge Raid, 23-Apr-1918.
