Austria's step from the ironclad into the pre-dreadnought era: The Monarch-class coastal battleships.
Three ships of some 5.600 tons mean, built between 1893 and 1897, named Monarch, Wien and Budapest. Speed (17,5 knots) and protection (the belt was 220 - 270mm Harvey steel) were adequate for their time, and their armament of four 240mm Krupp, six 150mm and 14 47mm guns (all Skoda) was modern and quite powerful for a ship of her size. They were all identical except for minor details at the funnels. Wien was completed without a main mast, but quickly retrofitted. The other two apparently had the mainmast from the start (if the pictures I've seen were correctly labeled). Typically for Austrian ships before 1900, the paintjob frequently changed; on photographs, funnels were sometimes white, or masts black - or both buff, as shown here.
After 1900, the class was painted green. Thex received a wireless rig; otherwise, they were little changed.
Wien was sunk by Italian naval commandoes in 1917. Monarch was decommissioned early in 1918 after a mutiny. Budapest landed turret A in 1918 and received a 380mm siege mortar forward for a planned coastal bombardment mission, which was never carried out. By 1918, the torpedo nets were landed.
The survivors were allocated to Great Britain after the war and scrapped in Italy.
