warspite1 -> OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 6:05:33 PM)

Lady and Gentlemen

I know that, with 4-5 exceptions, the beauty contests over on the General Discussion forum have not been your bag. Fair enough. However, I hope I have something on offer that is more to the liking of the navy-knowledgable people here.

Like the thread title says, I am looking for the most beautiful ships of WWII. The first category up for grabs is the most beautiful of the Fast Battleships. There are two groups of three, and I am looking for 1 vote per person in each group please. If you fancy it, please drop by the Australian Beauties thread and cast your vote.

Note: we are talking aesthetics only here - not war record.

I think one should consider the Bismarck-Class to be amongst the top 5 ;)

very nice lines...

Well she's in Group 1 - along with Vittorio Veneto and King George V if you fancy voting for her. Personally I vote for your avatar [;)]

Would be good to have a few more voters.

Usually you hear about this one.

Yes, but she's not a fast battleship. She will be in the battlecruisers competition no doubt.

sprior -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 7:53:09 PM)

Bismark should be disqualified - just plain ugly.

Well if you don't want her to go through please vote for KGV or VV [:)]




sprior -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:04:13 PM)

Can I nominate HMS Vanguard, launched 1944?

MAurelius -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:04:47 PM)

de gustibus non est disputandum....

but I do hope you vote for the looks - and not the history ;) - otherwise Bismarck would HAVE to win :P :P :P

PS: Vanguard would have been my 2nd choice...




JohnDillworth -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:05:37 PM)

I think I have brought some of my personal preferences over. I like em stacked: This is a thing of beauty to me.

JohnDillworth -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:06:12 PM)

Of course some of the Japanese CA's are works of art




JohnDillworth -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:08:54 PM)

Vittorio Veneto BB at Taranto

sprior -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:13:23 PM)

How about HMS Victory, she was still in commission 39-45. She still is.

I would have loved to be able to include Vanguard - but sadly her completion in 1946 rules her out. Such a shame because she is one gorgeous ship [&o]




sprior -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:30:53 PM)

Vanguard refusing to go to the breaker's yard quietly:

sprior -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 8:35:53 PM)

And finally, Warspite grounded on her way to the breakers in the ironically named Prussian Cove:

Yamato

borner -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 9:35:53 PM)

Yamato class gets my vote. Something that big with clean lines and still looks like a Battleship

Are you sure thats not a picture taken after an epic WiF game in which Yamato sunk Warspite....or was it the other way around. I can't remember..........[:'(]




John 3rd -> RE: OT Beautiful Ships of WWII (12/2/2012 10:24:47 PM)

What a terrible picture of Warspite.

My vote has to be for DAK Bismarck!

No sir! This was the thanks the Grand Old Lady got after she had won the war. The image you were thinking of was as per below:

Warspite1 sends over a deadly salvo and Yamato blows up - Hurrah [&o]. Now its off to Trincomalee for tea and medals [:)]
