7 x 1 - 57/50 Driggs-Schroeder Mk II/III, 2 x 1 - 450 TT (4)
Authorized under the Act of 4.5.1898. Turtle deck forward and four funnels in one group with two single TTs aft and far aft. Apparently the least satisfactory sea-boats of the '400-tonners' as the gun armament of 2 76mm and 5 57mm was reduced before commission to 7 57mm. Designed speed of 30kts was not made on trials by at least a knot.
No significant events.
