The "Furor"-Class of Spanish Warships was a mainstay in light fighting ships sent to break the American Blockade of Cuba during the Spanish-American War (1896-1898). A fast attack vessel, "Furor"-Class ships were typically 220-feet long and displaced 370-tons. They sat 22-feet tall. Powered by 2 triple expansion steam engines and 4 boilers, they could achieve 28-knots. Armed with (2) 15-pounds Guns, (2)14-pounder Guns, (8) 6-pounder Guns, (1) Maxim Gun and 2 Torpedoes. They were normally crewed by 60 to 70 men. The "Furor"-Class were in addition used to break The Blockade of the Spanish Colony, but played a major role in the Battle of Santiago Bay, Cuba (1898). Almost all of her Class were sunk and destroyed by The American Navy.
