  • Korean: 板屋船 (pan ok seon)

The panokseon was a style of warship devised by the Joseon royal navy in 1555 which, along with the famous turtle ships, played a decisive role in repelling Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea in the 1590s.

Panokseon were armed with multiple types of cannon, and had multiple decks separating combatants from non-combatants.
