IRONCLAD

Ironclad or Iron-clad Vessels, also known as armour-clad or armoured vessels were war-vessels protected against the fire of heavy guns by thick plates of iron or steel. Up until the middle of the 19th century all war-vessels were constructed of wood, but later they were built of steel. They were then propelled by means of sails, but later the motive power was steam and the immediate means of propulsion the screw-propeller. The guns carried by the later ironclad ships were immensely superior in speed of working, velocity of propulsion, range, and penetrative power to those of the old wooden-walled three-decker ships; and the change in their nature necessitated a different method of mounting, and a consequent complete transformation in the appearance of the vessel. The evolution of the guns of a late 19th century battle-ship proceeded side by side with the evolution of its armour. Improvements in guns and projectiles, resulting in greater penetrative power, necessitated the strengthening of armour either by increasing its thickness or by making it of some stronger material, and the stronger armour in turn led to the introduction of more powerful guns. There was thus continual rivalry between guns and armour. The torpedo was introduced and gave rise to distinct types of vessel, and special means of protection against it were devised. The enormous increase in the range of the torpedo also greatly influenced the improvement in guns

Steam was introduced into the royal navy long after it had begun to establish itself in merchant vessels, and both paddles and sails were employed in conjunction. The Penelope, a 46-gun frigate, was the first important war-vessel propelled by paddles. The Rattler, launched in 1843, was the first vessel of the navy fitted with a screw; and the Agamemnon, a 50-gun ship launched in 1852, was the first designed for the screw-propeller from the outset. The 1850's saw the construction of the earliest 'floating-batteries' protected by iron plating, these being first constructed in France. La Gloire, launched at Toulon in 1859, was a sea-going, wooden, armour-plated frigate, and was replied to by the British Admiralty with their first sea-going ironclad ship, the Warrior, launched near the end of 1860. The thickness of her armour, as in the La Gloire, was 4.5 inches, but she was unprotected at each end. In other ships built soon afterwards the armour was extended from end to end. The introduction of the ram, a revival of a common feature of ancient ships of war, took place about the same period, and in this also the French were the pioneers. The torpedo came into use soon after the middle of the 19th century, but it was not until the 1870's that the Whitehead fish-torpedo still in use thirty years later was devised and adopted. Special vessels, called torpedo-boats, were built to discharge torpedoes, but all ships of war of any size were then provided with torpedo-tubes. Torpedo-boat destroyers were a later introduced class of vessels intended to attack and sink torpedo-boats.

The earlier ironclad vessels carried their guns on the broadside like the old wooden vessels, but as the number of guns carried was reduced when ordnance grew heavier, and all-round firing was found expedient, it became necessary to limit the masses of armour by applying it to the most vulnerable parts only, and to adopt different arrangements of the guns. The broadside ironclad was replaced by the 'turret' ship, whose superiority to the older type was demonstrated by the success of Ericsson's Monitor in the American Civil War. Turret ships have on deck revolving turrets, each carrying one or more large guns. The first British turret ship was the Royal Sovereign, of 1862, but the first sea-going turret vessel was the Monarch of 1865. The Devastation and Thunderer, which followed a few years later, were turret ships without masts, and marked another step in advance. The Collingwood, completed in 1886, was the first of the 'barbette' ships, that is, those carrying guns planted on the upper deck, and enclosed in pairs by a fixed armoured base or barbette affording protection to the mechanism for working the guns. The King Edward, Dominion, and Commonwealth (1901-1902) mark a new departure in some ways. They were of large displacement (16,350 tons), of 18,000 indicated horse-power, and of maximum speed 18.5 knots. Armoured casemates were done away with, and a complete armoured battery substituted on the main deck, and four 9.2-inch guns were mounted in secondary turrets above.

The Lord Nelson class showed another change of type. All the guns were in turrets, and all were carried on the upper deck. The greatest thickness of armour was 14 inches; the number of torpedo-tubes five; and the guns four 12-inch and ten 9.2-inch. The giant Dreadnought, launched in 1906, was a notable vessel of its time embodying the matured experience of the best naval authorities at the time. Her main battery consisted of ten 12-inch guns, carried at a considerable height, and said at the time to be the most powerful ever carried afloat, being capable of sending a projectile of 850 lbs. through 51 inches of wrought-iron placed at the muzzle. The adoption of steam turbines gave her great speed for the time (21 knots). Her boilers were water-tube ones of the Babcock and Wilcox pattern.

Battleships were of the first, second, or third class, according to their value as fighting-ships, which was gauged by the extent and resisting power of their armour, the number, range, and penetrating power of their guns, their maximum speed and radius of action. Only battleships of the first class were built by Britain, and these remained in the first class until they were so far surpassed by new vessels that they were outclassed, when they become second-class battleships; after a further lapse of time, if they survived, they were rated third-class. The armoured fleet of a great naval power in the 19th and early 20th cenruries included not only battleships, in which armour and armament were of primary importance, but also cruisers, in which high speed was essential.

Cruisers of three classes were built by Britain, although the process of degradation from class to class went on with them as with battleships. Some of the larger armoured cruisers could take their place in line of battle, but the chief function of cruisers was to protect the merchant shipping of their country and to capture that of the enemy. The second-class cruisers were unarmoured, having only a sloping protective deck in way of the water-line, intended to protect the vitals of the ship from the effects of shells that might find entrance and explode within the ship, and possibly by causing shots which strike it to glance off.

The desire of the earlier war-ship designer was to minimize weight wherever possible while retaining the necessary strength, so that on a given displacement he may give more weight to the machinery, thus securing higher power and speed, or allocate the weight saved to additional armament or armour. Almost all 19th and early 20th century war-vessels had side-bunkers for carrying coal. When these were filled, the coal formed a protection from the enemy's shot and shell. It was, therefore, desirable that a vessel, on going into action, should have her coal-bunkers full; but as the warship-designer could not rely on the ship being always able to fight with full bunkers, other means were adopted to minimize the effect of shots or shell. Hence the vessel was divided into a large number of water-tight compartments, so that if one of them is penetrated the water admitted may be confined to it. At the water-tight compartments in way of the ship's water-line an additional precaution was taken. In some places where it was probable that a shot or shell may pierce not only the ship's side, but also one of these fore-and-aft watertight bulkheads forming the subdivision, a 'cofferdam' was fitted on that bulkhead on the side farthest from the sea. These cofferdams could be filled with canvas bags, sails, oakum, or cellulose before a vessel went into action; and should the bulkhead be forced the aperture could be blocked up by ramming down the canvas or sails, or if cellulose be used, the water reaching it would cause it to swell up and fill the hole.
