Interesting balance, a broadside of 12, 12in/45 is pretty good, the speed is good (but 23kt is probably 'better but not that significant') the armor at 9in/229mm is in the British first-gen Dreadnought range which is certainly on the slight side. Overall, the gun arrangement is perhaps the most interesting thing, but she's pretty inferior to perhaps the closest contemporary - Wyoming.

King, you are a fast publisher. You could win a race to Flash hahah

Let me add that Tzoli also suggests that this Armstrong Nº689 design could be similar to another design offered to Brazil with 18 x 305 mm guns. The "Nº4" design is some kind of Super-Rio de Janeiro, of which we do not have a sketch yet, but we can imagine it with 6 x III towers with 305/45 in a layout similar to the design shared here by King (these designs had a similar size; "Nº689" is 182,9 x 26,8 meters and "Nº4" is 189,6 x 26,7 meters.
