Re: Most Beautiful Dreadnought

Hi all, 1st post so I thought I'd get involved in a light hearted topic before some of the heavier going ones. In no particular order.... Bismarck, it looks like a floating city, a particularly brutal looking floating city. Iowas, sleek and menacing. Vittorio Venito class, Gorgeous looking ships. Yo...
