Banshee Class (1895) TBD

The Banshee Class was one of 14 Classes of Torpedo Boat Destroyers. Designed to a common contract speed of 27kts, with each class built by a different builder.

Built by Laird of Birkenhead, part of the 1893/94 construction programme. They were a class of three ships and followed on from the success of their prototypes.

In comparison with the prototypes the bow torpedo tube was omitted.

On 30-Aug-1912, in common with all other 27kt and prototype classes they were redesignated the A Class.
