Project history

Originally the Chinese Hai Hoha captured by the British destroyers Fame and Whiting in the attack on the Taku forts, and assigned to Russia. She had two large funnels and two deck TT and was easily the fastest of the Russian flotilla in the war with Japan.

Modernizations

1904: - 2 x 1 - 350 TT; + 1 x 1 - 381 TT

Naval service

She was torpedoed by the picket boats of the Mikasa and Fuji in Ta Ho Bay to the east of Port Arthur 23.7.1904 and exploded by own crew 30.7.1904 (towing was impossible).
