Sarissa Precision – 15mm American Civil War Ironclads
Developed in the second half of the 19th century, the Ironclads were intended to negate the vulnerability of wooden warships to explosive or incendiary shells. The resulting warships were steam-propelled and sported hulls protected by iron or steel armour plates. They were used extensively by both the Union and Confederate navies in the American Civil War,
An iron-hulled steamship built during the American Civil War, the USS Monitor was the first such ironclad warship commissioned by the Union Navy.
In an epic clash of iron and steam, two ironclads changed the course of Naval warfare. It was March 9, 1862 off Hampton Roads, Virginia. In a 4 hour long clash The U.S.S. Monitor and the C.S.S. Virginia, slugged it out to but neither could penetrate the others armour.
These ships are a great addition to any 12 to 15mm scale ACW game table.
