It was in 1859 when France launched La Gloire, the world's first ocean-going
wooden-hulled ironclad warship. Being capable of resisting shots from
68-pounder gun, it made the unarmored ships of other countries obsolete. At
the time, France wasn't capable of producing sufficient iron so its hull was
made of wood sheathed with iron plates. As the wood deteriorates over time,
La Gloire was soon rendered obsolete when Great Britain launched the world's
first iron-hulled ironclad warship HMS Warrior.
