"Four ships were ordered, but the last two were significantly modified and became the separate Admiral Spiridov class" - were they modified during construction? If so might be worth mentioning in the lead
"The Admiral Lazarevs were stricken from the Navy List in 1907 and 1909" - needs a "respectively" on the end
I didn't actually name each ship, so respectively isn't needed.
"In November the committee decided" - November 1863?
"the two designs, whileAdmiral Chicagov and Admiral Spiridov" - space needed
"The monitors were ultimately designed to be armed with six 20-caliberObukhov 9-inch rifled guns" - another space needed here?
"The deck armor was in two layers with a total thickness of 1 inch" - I think "1 inch" could do with a conversion
Converted on first use in the first section of the armor paragraph
There's no mention on their scraping in the Construction and service (feel free to ignore this)
A very solid article. I could only find a handful of minor prose issues but once they're all addressed then this should be good to go. I hope I haven't made any "newbie" misunderstandings! JAGUAR 13:11, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
