Project history

A large class with many variations in details. The Normand-built 207-205 were the prototypes, and during the construction of the class Normand-inspired modifications continually uprated the engines, reaching an actual figure of 2000ihp in 278-279. They were the first class designed with two boilers (and consequently had two funnels) and were considered economical steamers. 243 was completed with two experimental Rateau turbines, the first in the French Navy.
