While not as powerful as a normal mainstream Ironclad, the Tuscaloosa class nevertheless provides a cheaper and faster-building  unit that is ideal for shore bombardment or coastal defence. Sharing the same level of protection as an Ironclad and having some imperviability to traditional rounded shot, the Tuscaloosa-class Ironclad can be used as an early Industrial game unit to either bully more technologically backward factions, or pose a serious challenge to enemies still relying on Steam Frigates until Torpedo Boats can be brought to the fore to counter enemy Ironclads.
