Monitor vs Warrior by RadoJavor Monitor vs Warrior by RadoJavor
I like to think about history and alternative history also. This is a vision of different historical line. British empire is intervening in American civil war on the side of Confederation. The first ironclads in the world fight against each other. The biggest ships in the world at time British HMS Warrior and Black Prince against smaller heavy armored American Monitors. I've read many articles about this fictional battle, still its not clear which ship can win.

Wow this whole war reminds me of my war, when the Confederacy was winning control of the Union from 1863, to 1872, until France and England intervened, on the side of the Union. The British Empire helped repel the Sough in Michigan, the Union's last state in Continental America, while the French Empire invaded and liberated New York City. The war instead of ending in 1865, in my alternate version ended in the year 1883, all because of the Confederacy's victory at Gettysburg.

Also in the Alternate war, the Americans were getting far ahead in war technology, and have also established Bolt Action rifles, Railway Cannons, Steam powered wagons which required no horses, hand cranked Machine Guns, mines, Submarines, and even a man made helicopter that was cranked by feet, and could be held by 2 people, one to fire at the enemy down below while another steered the vehicle. It was made first in 1871, by the Union, in a strong attempt to recon the Midwest at the time.

In an engagement like this... ramming the Monitor would be the best bet.

This would be good for a new Total War Game.

You can pit them against each other in a Total War game though : o.

...though the way ithe game made things, the Warrior would probably win.

In open seas the Monitor would be doomed because she was so low, however, in a harbor the Monitor possessed superior armor and presented a smaller target than the Warrior and Black Prince, and if allowed to use her 15 inch Dahlgrens at full powder load would easily rip holes in the British ships. The British ships, as they were historically equipped, would have significant trouble penetrating 8 inch layered plate with their much lighter armament, though if allowed heavier guns, instead of attempting to show off the less reliable breech-loading ones, their large number of broadside guns may have been able to tear apart the Monitor.
