I can tell it's a british design, but I'm not really sure what it could be.

Minotaur class cruiser?

 It cant be a town class cruiser as those had 4 turrets with 3 guns and our ship obviously has 3.

Nope....funnels are too close together for KGV. Another hint? Pay more attention to the superstructure particularly near the "Crows Nest" and the gap between funnel "B" and the superstructure aft.

CORRECT!!! A Taskforce44 Online Cookie for you sar! It is the silhouette of HMS Repulse, Renown Class Battlecruiser. Another cool part of this game is I am actually starting to be able to identify ships in-game by their silhouettes at range, another tick for the realism of this game.

WELL DONE Coldbeer or should I say Bravo Zulu sar.

And my candidate is..SMS Schleswig-Holstein...Deutschland class BB

I would Agree having seen photos of her.

It could also be the Schlesien.

However she wasn't always like the silhouette. From 1926 to 1943  this was her configuration between modernisations.  both were modernised at the same time

Correct Coldbeer!!! You win the basket of Fish Heads & Lizard Testicles for this week...lol I believe that's two for two Coldbeer, you seem to be quite good at this. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

The Mystery Ship II - Is Schleswig-Holstein. And well done to Moganite for correctly identifying her sister-ship Schlesien

Should we try another?

Mystery Ship III - How Well Do We Know Our Carriers?

Heres an interesting one guys, how well do we know our carriers? Remember you must correctly identify by name, you can guess as many times as you like and if necessary hints can be given.

I concur.
She was the only one with centralised tower of such small dimensions.
