The iron-clads of the Danish navy are converted ships, on the French model, with the exception of the Rolf Krake and the Lindormen. The Rolf Krake, built by Napier, of Glasgow, is plated with 41⁄2-inch iron, and has two turrets, which carry three 60-pounders; it is of 1,200 tons burthen, and draws 16 feet of water. The Lindormen is plated from stem to stern with 5-inch iron, over 10 inches wood-backing, and carries a Coles's cupola, with folding-down bulwarks. The Lindormen is armed with two 121⁄2 tons rifled Armstrong cannon; is 210 feet long, and 38 feet 3 inches broad, with a draught of 12 feet fore and aft, and has twin screws. The turret ship, marked as Number 54, similar to the Lindormen in construction, but with seven-inch armour, and carrying 18 tons rifledArmstrong cannon, was not quite finished in September, 1869.
