Deutsch: Ironclad Warship oder oft nur kurz Ironclad (englisch, wörtlich etwa: „mit Eisenplatten gepanzert„) war ein relativ kurzlebiger aber sehr erfolgreicher Schiffstyp, der etwa zwischen 1859 und 1880 gebaut wurde und die Entwicklung des modernen Schlachtschiffs einleitete. Ironclads waren damit auch die ersten Panzerschiffe.
English: Ironclad warships, frequently shortened to just ironclads, were wooden ships or ships of composite construction (wooden planking on iron frames) sheathed with thick iron plates for protection against gunfire. The first uses of iron for naval protection occurred in the Far East in the 16th century, but the heyday of the ironclad came in the mid-19th century, when ironclads supplanted wooden ships, and then were themselves replaced by ships made of steel.
