I suppose we could change tack slightly and do a "Most Beautiful Warship of WWII" competition?

We could have a shortlist of 64 ships, separated into 16 groups of 4. The top two in each group go through and from then its a straight 1v1 knock-out contest, until utimately HMS Warspite wins. Whaddya think?

Mmmmm....not feeling the vibe on that idea.....

I think it is a great idea.

Do you set it up in a a new thread? Three ships from the same nationality compete against each other in round one?

I don't think that the HMS Warspite stands a snow ball's chance in hell.

These is a tough competition based on looks alone. The Italian ship would have been better looking if the rear turret wasn't placed so damn high up...why did they do that?

So its out of Bismarck a mean, purposeful looking ship, and KGV's refined statuesque beauty - love the RN bridges from the late 30's.

On balance, I will plump for the RN ship - but its close.

Another tough group. The French ship loses out because of the gap between the two foward turrets and the lack of rear facing main armament makes her look unbalanced.

So its between the two leviathans - the US vs Japan. Shame they were drawn together because they should both be group winners imo. Ultimately I have to plump for Iowa just because......

I am not that fond of the bow portion of Yamato. And after seeing this display of beauty, power and terror I am sold.


My vote goes to USS Iowa.

I'll withhold my voting, I am ignorant when it comes to ships. I have no idea about them apart that they float and when I'm aboard I want to get back on dry land with a full stomach.

Out of interest Iowa-class lovers, which do you prefer looks wise - the South Dakotas or the Iowas?

Mmmm...I can't make up my mind. Iowa is the more classic beauty, but there is something engaging about South Dakota's "stubbyness"...... either way, they both look purposeful sob's

Yes, Iowas lines are 'better'. SoDak, looks to be bristling with armament over a given square footage. More 'bristley', less refined.

Not necessarily so CB. I know absolutely nothing about women....but I know what I like (if you know what I mean)....... Ergo and theretofore, I do not believe one has to know about ships to appreciate their lines and curves - and of course their almighty weapons .

OK, it seems the three of us agree.

Iowa= Princess at the ball.
South Dakota= Mean, nasty looking, would'nt want to meet in a dark ally.

Two different answers.

What was the question again?

Don't worry fodder old chap, you'll get the hang of it. I suspect you have similar problems with US-Swedish. Did you read what Orm said for Group 1 as Bismarck?...thought so, Orm was of course saying KGV

Anyways, enough of that. Here are the scores on the doors Isla

Group 1

Bismarck (2) Orm, fodder
HMS King George V (2) warspite1, redcoat
Vittorio Veneto (1) Chickenboy

Group 2

USS Iowa (4) warspite1, Orm, parusski, Chickenboy
