Ironclad - Kotetsu class

This slow moving battle ship has impressive armament with excellent range and accuracy.

The Kotetsu is an amazing feat of engineering. This screw-driven ironclad battleship may not be as big as some of her contemporaries, but she more than makes up for it in power and guns. She carries one of the most powerful guns available in contemporary naval combat and, as a result, boasts excellent range and accuracy. Her crew are armed with rifles and the morale on board ship is extremely high.

Although Kotetsu, literally meaning “Ironclad”, became the first warship of the type in the Japanese fleet she answered to many names before she even reached Japan. Constructed in France for the Confederate States Navy in 1864, she was originally named the “CSS Sphinx”. However, when it was discovered that the French were building ships for the Confederates the shipyard was forced to sell the Sphinx to Denmark, where she was renamed Staerkodder. The following year she finally sailed under the Confederate flag and was re-commissioned the “CSS Stonewall”. She went on to play a key role in the American Civil War and, after spending a small amount of time in a US Navy dock, was eventually sold to the Tokugawa Shogunate in 1868, and given the name Kotetsu.
