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.
