Ship project history: This steel-hulled vessel had a raised forecastle, one funnel and two masts. The 20pdr QF were mounted fore and aft and there was a fixed bow TT and two trainable tubes, one on each side abaft the break of the forecastle. She was wood-sheathed. Built by Armstrong as the stock ship Aurora, she was renamed Gustavo Sampaio on purchase by Brazil on 8/10/1893.

Ship protection: Only CT had 19mm sides.

Modernizations: None.

Naval service: No significant events.
