First Irion-clad Ship in World

 
 
The turtle ship is the world’s first iron-clad ship made by the Korean nation.
The construction of the ship was completed from 1591 to February 1592 by distinguished patriotic general Ri Sun Sin (1545-1598). The ship made a great contribution to the victory of the Imjin Patriotic War (1592-1598) by displaying its might in the naval battles against the Japanese invaders.
It was named after its shape of a tortoise with the dragon-like head and tortoise-like body and tail.
It was 35 meter long, 11.8 meter wide and 5.2 meter high.
It antedated the Spanish and French armored vessels by nearly 200 years.
