History and photographs of the French Battleship Iena, launched in 1898.  

Iena 1st September 1898 Sunk after explosion on board on 12th March 1907.
 

The French Battleship Iena in 1902

She was launched in 1898 and displaced 12,052 tons, and was supposed to be capable of 18 knots. The Iena had three screws fitted - an experiment which was not tried in the British Navy at this time. The Iena was an improvement on the Charlemagne. She was well protected with a water-line belt, but the protection of her secondary armament was not ideal. A peculiarity at the time was her closed in military tops. She carried four 12 in guns mounted in pairs forward and aft, eight 6.4 in guns and some smaller guns also.
