The two-ship Warrior class was a revolutionary British Royal Navy battleship design of the mid 19th century. They were the second type of ocean-going ironclad warships ever constructed, after the French Gloire. H.M.S. Black Prince and her sister ship H.M.S. Warrior were ship-rigged ironclads and were the world's first ocean-going armoured ships.
