Possessed good seagoing capacities and manoeuvrability, but to the beginning of WWI ships have morally become outdated because of the weak and unsuccessfully arranged artillery.
Main belt (1.8m high) had 200mm thickness between fore superstructure and main mast (tapering to 100mm at lower edge). Ship ends (fwd to the stem and aft part, ending in 20m from the stern) were protected by 100mm armour. This belt was closed by 203-178mm aft bulkhead. Upper belt (over 200mm part of main belt) had 80mm thickness and protected 152mm guns, 75mm gun casemates had also 80mm protection. Flat 50mm main deck was connected with upper edge of main belt. Turrets had 150mm sides and 30mm roofs, barbettes had 170mm armour. CT had 160mm sides.

Bayan (i) was sunk on shallow water by Japanese siege guns 8.12.1904 and later destroyed by own crew 2.1.1905 to avoid capture by Japanese, but she was salvaged by them in December, repaired and commissioned as Aso. Pallada was 21.9.1914 torpedoed by German submarine U26 and has sunk with all hands. After the termination of Civil war both remained cruisers were stricken from a fleet list and in 1926 broken up.
