Why do we need warships? The Basin is alone on land and on seas. From whom do we need protection?

The Pewternaut is a class of steel-hulled warships from Scadrial. They were developed by Lord Mayor Bastien Severington of Bilming along with Dr. Florin Malin around 342 PC.[1]

They are heavily-armored warships with reinforced hulls, electronic range-finders, and a total armament of sixteen 12-inch naval artillery guns, with a range of 16 miles. They are capable of reaching a top speed of 24 miles an hour. The Pewternaut represented a significant technological advancement compared to the clipper ships typically in use around the Basin.[1]

Senator Inis Julien and other members of a delegation from Elendel that were invited to the unveiling of the ships publicly mocked them as unnecessary.[1] This likely contributed to growing anti-Elendel sentiment in other cities, some of it incited by Lord Severington.[2]
