A three-funnelled cruiser with a single mast between the second and third funnels, and a ram bow. The Novik was lightly built as a much enlarged destroyer. The 120mm guns were mounted fore and aft with two on either beam. For her day the Novik was a very fast ship and attained 19,000ihp - 25.6kts on trials.
There was a 38mm deck with 51mm slopes and to 70mm over the top of the engines.
Novik was scuttled 20.8.1904 at Korsakovsk in Sakhalin after an action with the light cruiser Tsushima and was later salved by the Japanese and served in their navy as Suzuya.
