Plans of Idzumo Class Armoured Cruiser
These plans show the Idzumo class armoured cruisers (Idzumo and Iwate). Both were designed by Sir Philip Watt, and were developments of the Asama, itself an improved version of the O'Higgins, produced for Chile. All were built by Armstrong at Elswick. Although the original caption includes the Adzuma and Yakumo, they were slightly different designs, built in France and Germany. The Idzumo class ships carried four 8in guns in twin turrets and fourteen 6in guns in a mix of turrets and casemates on two levels. Four on each side were on the same level as the main guns and three one level below.
