Richelieu class (Richelieu, Jean Bart)

Elegant, distinctive, innovative, and excellent.
The premier french battleship, and one of very
few battleships actually built that respected
the 35,000 ton displacement limitation set
forth in the Washington Treaty.

The Richelieu sported numerous unique
systems, such as foil-skinned bouyant foam
capsules to prevent taking on too much water
from torpedo hits, excellent void and and water
filled torpedo blisters, exceptionally well
designed armor, some of the best (and longest
range) 15 inch guns ever built with a unique
loading system. Although it started life with a
relatively weak anti-aircraft system on par
with the Vittorio Veneto, it was refitted by
the Allies during its rather eventful history
to carry a much heavier anti-aircraft suite.
This class was retired in the 1950s-1960s, with
the

Richelieu being finally scrapped in
1970.

YAMA YAMA
Yamato class (IJN Yamato)

With a main armament consisting of nine 18.1/45
guns, the heaviest displacement of any
battleship ever built, the Yamato is the
monster of the battleship world. More armor,
heavier weapons, and superior optics made this
battleship something nobody else wanted to get
close to. In the end, torpedos and bombers
proved its end as aircraft carriers supplanted
battleships as the kings of the sea. Few
warships of today outmass it, and none have
ever carried bigger guns or heavier armor. The
Yamato was overawing beyond any doubt.

The third planned Yamato class battleship
was actually completed as an aircraft carrier.

Hot Damn!!!




Pride and joy of Nazi Germany. (Bismarck and
Tirpitz)

A legendary ship that sank the famous HMS Hood, and
the most powerful German warship ever built. A
crew topping 2000 men, full displacement just
past 50,000 tons, and four paired 15 inch guns
laid out a flexible and potent warship,
potentially a match for just about any other
warship in the North Sea. Unfortunately, in
spite of good German optics and impressive
statistics, the Bismark ended up getting
toasted. Poorly supported by a relatively weak
German navy, it also suffered from poor radar,
bad fire control, and poor deck protection from
long ranged fire. The Bismarck was designed
with an eye towards the Baltic battles of WWI,
and would have done very well in that
situation.

Without taking the test I'd opt to be the USS Wisconsin. Its the only battleship left in reserve that's in condition to be returned to active service (albeit with the necessity of stripping the other Iowa class vessels on display and in MARAD custody) and represents the pinnacle of battleship power.

It was the fastest and most powerful battleship ever to float (counting the guns, missile systems and protection offered) and is the image of what an effective battlewagon could be.

I personally saw her rounds landing and witnessed their effect from a range of 12 or so klicks. It is extremely impressive. Evidently the enemy tried to surrender to the UAV providing FAC for the 16" rifles after they were hit.

That said, if I had the choice I'd still prefer to have one of the converted SSGN's as my main force projector....not as traditional but more effective and less vulnerable.

Full broadsides in action. Firing high explosive shells the size of Volkswagens on Iraqi targets in Kuwait.





During her last commissioned year.




A sight never to be again seen. All 4 of the class sailing together.

Gangut The Gangut class was the largest native class of battleship actually used by the USSR in WWII. They also served in WWI, but underwent extensive upgrades and modification over the years. With four triple 12 inch guns, the Gangut carried light firepower but potentially the highest overall rate of fire of any battleship in terms of heavy shells per minute. A WWI workhorse, the Gangut class was re-used throughout WWII, providing surface bombardment to support the Soviet advance through Germany; although a heavier battleship class, the Sovietski Soyuz, was under construction as WWII opened up, it was never brought into action, leaving the Gangut the largest Soviet battleship on record.

I can't tell if this is good or bad - I'm assuming bad...or at very least, not so good...


EDIT -

Ok, so when I changed two of the answers I was "on the fence" about, here's what I ended up with:



Yamato class (IJN Yamato) With a main armament consisting of nine 18.1/45 guns, the heaviest displacement of any battleship ever built, the Yamato is the monster of the battleship world. More armor, heavier weapons, and superior optics made this battleship something nobody else wanted to get close to.

Now THAT'S more like it!   Big thumbs up

Interesting. I never knew the Soviets even fielded a battleship in WWII. Put some cage masts on that Gangut and it's almost got a look like the USS Mississippi.

That said, I did watch every episode of Star Blazers and can appreciate what a fine piece of equipment that class of vessel was.  Big grin

I think I can live with being an Iowa.

Pretty bad, EA CO AS. The Ganguts were pretty much obsolete before they were completed and were more of a cross between a battleship and a battlecruiser than a true battleship. They WERE extensively modified, but pretty much fell into disrepair soon after refits and were used as little more than floating batteries by the Soviet Navy. There were four hulls built - Gangut, Petropavlovsk, Poltava, and Sevastopol. All except Sevastopol, which served in the Black Sea, served in the Baltic, The Russians also built two improved variant-classes, the Imperatritsa Mariya-class and the Imperator Nikolai I-class, but all units of these classes were scrapped before World War II.

You can worry about being pretty, or fast, or easy to work on, but if you're interested in winning, you gotta swing the big lumber faster, longer and better than your opponent can pitch.

There should be 5 photos. I'm getting them all here. Which ones did not appear?

venetio vittorio class
Vittorio Veneto class. (Vittorio Veneto, Roma,
Littorio.
)

The Italian battleship of WWII. Powerful and
relatively nimble at 30 knots, it was
nonetheless not quite as heavily armored and
turned out to be poorly protected against
torpedo attacks in spite of a combination of
interesting but largely ineffectual
innovations. Still a formidable foe, but in the
end more impressive in looks than any other
category. Although mounting three triple
turrets with unusually powerful 15/50 guns -
which had a very short barrel lifespan - the
Vittorio had a short operating radius and one
of the weakest anti-aircraft suites of any
battleship built after 1930. Although it was
officially intended to stay within the treaty
limit of 35,000 tons, it is generally
considered to have gone well beyond that.

Kiwi - Graf Spee wasn't a true battleship. Although the Kriegsmarine classified her as a pocket battleship, Graf Spee and her sister Deutschland-class ships were more like light cruisers with a heavier armament, which is why a good many contemporary naval historians class them as "raiding cruisers."

Personally, I'd have preferred to be the Bismark or Prince of Wales, but hey, this ain't bad. Historical note...the third ship of this class was completed as the aircraft carrier Shinano which was sunk by the submarine USS Archer-Fish in late 1944.

YAMA YAMA
Yamato class (IJN Yamato)

With a main armament consisting of nine 18.1/45
guns, the heaviest displacement of any
battleship ever built, the Yamato is the
monster of the battleship world. More armor,
heavier weapons, and superior optics made this
battleship something nobody else wanted to get
close to. In the end, torpedos and bombers
proved its end as aircraft carriers supplanted
battleships as the kings of the sea. Few
warships of today outmass it, and none have
ever carried bigger guns or heavier armor. The
Yamato was overawing beyond any doubt.

The third planned Yamato class battleship
was actually completed as an aircraft carrier.

This was the heaviest single ship sunk in the war.

USS Texas
You are the USS Texas.

You are the flagship for today's Third Texas Navy
and a museum piece linked with the pride of
Texas. Built by the US navy with ten 14 inch
guns, you're a symbol of Texan pride with a
proud history in combat. World War I was really
more your speed, though.

As far as warships go, though, you don't measure up
very well to the more modern battleships,
lacking sorely in armor and speed.
Nevertheless, a proud history lies behind you.

Richelieu
Richelieu class (Richelieu, Jean
Bart
)

Elegant, distinctive, innovative, and excellent.
The premier french battleship, and one of very
few battleships actually built that respected
the 35,000 ton displacement limitation set
forth in the Washington Treaty.

The Richelieu sported numerous unique
systems, such as foil-skinned bouyant foam
capsules to prevent taking on too much water
from torpedo hits, excellent void and and water
filled torpedo blisters, exceptionally well
designed armor, some of the best (and longest
range) 15 inch guns ever built with a unique
loading system. Although it started life with a
relatively weak anti-aircraft system on par
with the Vittorio Veneto, it was refitted by
the Allies during its rather eventful history
to carry a much heavier anti-aircraft suite.
This class was retired in the 1950s-1960s, with
the Richelieu being finally scrapped in
1970.

2x4 15/45
9 6/55
12 3.9/45
12 37mm (pre-refit #1)
24 13.2mm (pre-refit #1)
56 40mm (post-refit #1)
48 20mm (post-refit #2)
28 57mm (Jean Bart, post-war)
20 20mm (Jean Bart, post-war)

Gangut Class
Gangut

The Gangut class was the largest native class of
battleship actually used by the USSR in WWII.
They also served in WWI, but underwent
extensive upgrades and modification over the
years. With four triple 12 inch guns, the
Gangut carried light firepower but potentially
the highest overall rate of fire of any
battleship in terms of heavy shells per minute.

A WWI workhorse, the Gangut class was
re-used throughout WWII, providing surface
bombardment to support the Soviet advance
through Germany; although a heavier battleship
class, the Sovietski Soyuz, was under
construction as WWII opened up, it was never
brought into action, leaving the Gangut the
largest Soviet battleship on record.
