The World Encyclopedia of Battleships By Peter Hore.

Equipment and procedures for transmitting the range and correction of the data between ships were devised and the range tables for all major guns were revised. New shells with more reliable and predictable trajectories were designed and gun mountings improved, including smoke extraction fans to keep the turrets clear. With these gunnery improvements and more thourough training, Evstafi and Ioann Zlatoust formed the core of the squadron which aquitted itself when it came up against the more recent Goeben.
