Description: 
The Chih Yuen was a protected cruiser in service with the Chinese Beiyang Fleet. Chih Yuen was the sister ship to Ching Yuen, both of which were designed and constructed in Elswick, in the United Kingdom by Armstrong Whitworth. This type of cruisers, produced exclusively for export, were loosely known as the "Elswick Cruisers". They were fast and well-armed, but considered to be vulnerable by the Admiralty. Chih Yuen, commanded by Captain Deng Shichang, was sunk at the Battle of the Yalu River against the Imperial Japanese Navy on 17 September 1894.
