"Montebello" 118 guns. French first-rate ship of the line, laid down at Toulon in 1810, launched 1812. One of the 16 "Ocean" class ships of the line, this was the most powerful class of warship built by any power in the Napoleonic period. 10 were completed during the wars. Good, powerful gun platforms and, for first-rates, a good turn of speed (10 knots). Extremely expensive ships. This shows Montebello about 1850, just before she was fitted with experimental steam propulsion. Scrapped 1889.
