Intended as a cheaper companion model to the Warrior class, it was delayed fifteen years due to funding problems.
Considered old and obsolete by the beginning of the 20th Century PD, some of these vessels were refitted to serve as marine support cruisers. Those refitted ships were known as Nightstick-class LCAs, although very useful were very unpopular, causing plans to be made to replace them relatively quickly by purpose built a LCA class, the Broadsword class, which was delayed twenty years.
