Built in responds to the French iron-hulled warship La Gloire, HMS Warrior, a revolution in Naval shipbuilding, was the largest and fastest armoured warship of her day. Innovations came at such a high pace however, that she became obsolete within a decade and in 1883 she was already withdrawn from active sea service. She has been restored and is on display at Portsmouth dockyards, England.
