Tage was the second protected cruiser in the French navy. She shows the tumblehome hull and ram bow that were very common in French ships, and the heavy sailing rig common in this transitional era. The first French protected cruiser, Sfax, is seen in the background. Tage was completed in 1890, and re-boilered in 1900. She was stricken 10 years later, already long obsolete.
