I am waiting for some information about, I asked for, as I am not able to deal with it. Really puzzling.
Note that Neptune was never painted gray, but black/grey (this latter grey slightly different from the one adopted from 1908 onwards), as she was scrapped soon after our fleet was painted all grey by 1908.
In 1884, a Brennus was set on keel, along with Charles-Martel, following the Neptune/Magenta/Hoche/Marceau (begun 1880) whose hulls are close one another, but soon scrapped, as Amiral Aube decided to stop ironclad construction to benefit torpedo boats. The other Brennus was begun later on, being on duty dec 16, 1896.
