The last four vessels were ordered separately and are sometimes known as the Gadfly class, although they were essentially identical. Members of the class lingered on as steam lighters, dredgers, boom defence vessels and base ships, lasting in some cases into the 1950s. Design The flat-iron gunboats were designed for coastal bombardment, and were constructed from iron. They were not rigged, and the single 10-inch (18 ton) muzzle-loading rifle was fitted forward on a hydraulic mount that allowed it to be lowered for a sea passage and raised for action, thereby improving the vessel's seaworthiness.[1] Power was provided by a pair of two-cylinder horizontal single-expansion steam engines driving twin screws. Together they developed 260 indicated horsepower (190 kW), giving a top speed of about 8.5 knots (15.7 km/h).[1] Ships Name Ship Builder Launched Fate HMS Blazer Portsmouth Dockyard 7 December 1870 Became seagoing tender for weapons testing in 1904.
