Brazilian ships[edit]

I understand that two ships of this class were also built for the Brazilian Navy ("Bahia" and "Rio Grande do Sul")? Does WP have an article on them? Drutt (talk) 17:25, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

Do you have a source that these ships were members of the class? They were built five years later than the British ships, had greater displacement, length and beam, and different armament. Benea (talk) 19:09, 30 March 2009 (UTC)

You would be better informed than I. Casual browsing of the internet left me with the impression that they were of the Adventure class (or very similar). Drutt (talk) 17:22, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

They were certainly scout cruisers, and similar in general design to meet similar roles. They may be an adapted design of the Adventure class (which if we could find an reliable source would be worthy of a mention here) but my sources don't mention them as being in the same class per se. I'll try and dig some more sources up. Benea (talk) 20:09, 31 March 2009 (UTC)

We now have an article on these ships: Bahia class cruiser. Drutt (talk) 22:34, 28 October 2009 (UTC)

comment[edit]

the main guns are 18 cwt in the text and 12 cwt in the panel

18 in should be 457 mm
