Si
HMS Warrior was the world’s first iron-hulled armoured battleship. When she was built and launched in 1860, she made all other warships around the world obsolete overnight. Her guns had a longer range than anything else afloat, and her combination of steam driven engines and sails made her faster than anything she would ever face. Finally, her iron armour made her invulnerable to attack from any other ship in the seas. In summary, she could attack at a longer range than her opponents, and anything she couldn’t outgun she could outrun. It is therefore somewhat ironic that during her short career with the Royal Navy, not one single shot was ever fired in anger.Listed as part of the National Historic Fleet, Core Collection, she is now a museum ship in Portsmouth, United Kingdom. #armoured #famous #historic #hms #iron #listed #portsmouth #uk #warrior #warship
