Ship project history: Intended to match Swedish ships, and unsuited for the voyage half way round the world which ended at Tsushima. The 254mm guns were a lighter, lower velocity pattern than in the Peresvet class, and General-admiral Apraksin differed from the other two in having a one-gun after turret.

Ship protection: Main belt (53x2.1m) extended between the barbettes and was 254mm abreast machinery (tapered to 127mm at lower edge) and 203mm abreast barbettes, it was closed by 203mm fore and 152mm aft bulkheads. Armoured deck was 25mm flat over the belt and 51mm turtleback-formed at ship ends.

Modernizations: 1904, all: - 2 - 381 TT (1 bow, 1 aft)

Naval service: All three ships were lost at the Battle of Tsushima 28/5/1905: Admiral Ushakow was sunk by gunfire of two Japanese armoured cruisers; Admiral Senyavin and General-admiral Apraksin surrendered to Japanese and after repair were commissioned by them as Mishima and Okinoshima respectively.
