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.

 During a patrol on 6th July 1918, Christiansen spotted a British submarine on the surface of the Thames Estuary. He immediately turned and put his Hansa-Brandenburg W.29 floatplane into an attacking dive, raking the submarine C.25 with machine gun fire, killing the captain and five other crewmen. This victory was added to his personal tally, bringing his score to 13 kills by the end of the war, even though the submarine managed to limp back to safety. Christiansen survived the war and went on to work as a pilot for the Dornier company, notably flying the giant Dornier Do.X on its inaugural flight to New York in 1930. He died in 1972, aged 93.
