The principal armament consisted of four 13.5'' guns, with two of which being mounted in each of two barbettes; these were armoured structures containing the handling arrangements for ammunition and cordite supply. These were fixed and only the guns themselves rotated; however, they had to be trained fore and aft at a fixed elevation to be reloaded and the gun's crew were exposed to enemy fire in action. The secondary armament included ten 6'' quick-firing guns intended to pour rapid fire into an opponent. Action was expected to take place at close quarters with battle-practice ranges as close as two thousand yards considered normal in the 1890s and ramming was regarded as a viable tactic. All British battleships were fitted with four submerged tubes able to fire 18'' torpedoes on the beam and it was the threat of enemy torpedoes that caused longer-range gunfire to be developed so that in battle ships might remain outside their range.
