HMS Hotspur ironclad ram.  Photos and history of HMS Hotspur, Built at Govan, Scotland by Napier launched 19th March 1870. and completed 17th November 1871.   HMS Hotspur was similar in layout to Monitor HMS Glatton.

This was built instead of a Turret as it was believed that the turret would not withstand a ramming.  HMS  Hotspur major weapon was its 10 ft. ram from the bow.  She was a good platform and steady when firing her 12 inch MLR Gun.   She was re constructed at lairds in 1881 to 1883. with the gun house being replaced with a turret mounting two `12inch MLR guns.
