- Notes: Smaller and faster version of the Majestic class, designed primarily for the China station. Weight was saved primarily by reduction of armor thickness, but Krupp steel replaced Harvey nickel steel, which compensated somewhat. First British battleships fitted with water-tube boilers, working at 300psi; the boiler arrangement led to the fore-and-aft funnels rather than the side-by-side of previous classes.
