Ship project history: A turret ship of 3m freeboard as completed. The turret bases were not individually armoured, and the 152mm guns were in an upper deck battery. The Navarin suffered from insufficient boiler power, but for her date was well protected. A most unusual feature was the location of the four funnels in two pairs abreast.

Ship protection: The belt was 67m long, the lower strake being 406-356mm with an 203mm lower edge and reaching from 1.5m below to 0.6m above lwl, while the upper strake was 46m long, 2.4m wide and a uniform 305mm. The bulkheads were 305mm and the armour deck 63-51mm over the belt and 76mm at the ends.

Modernizations: 1904: - 3 x 1 - 37/20; + 4 x 1 - 120/43 Canet, 4 x 1 - 57/40 Hotchkiss, 10 x 1 - 47/40 Hotchkiss

Naval service: At night 27-28/5/1905 in the Tsushima Straits she was sunk by three torpedoes fired by Japanese torpedo boats.
