The Chinese cruiser Nan Shuin
This is my version of the Nan Shuin, a Chinese unprotected steel cruiser built by Howaldt at Kiel, Germany. The Nan Shuin was launched on 8 January 1884. The Nan Shuin was a 2200 ton ship that could reach a speed of just 13 knots. The Nan Shuin was armed with 2-8.2in, 8-4.7in BLR guns.
