The Bahia Class Light Cruisers was a class of cruisers constructed to be leaders of a flotilla of destroyers, within the naval plan of 1910. Due to technical limitations of their arsenals originally burned coal, it did not have anti-submarine equipment, and even anti-aircraft fire control center, which greatly diminished its effectiveness, but both attended the DNOG, the Rio Grande do Sul supposedly sunk a German submarine with cannon fire. Modified in 1926 on the site of the National Coastal Shipping, ships became "new". Bahia shot down a plane in the revolution of 1932 and was lost in combat patrol in 1945, with the death of 337 crew members, only 36 survived.
