    Today is the anniversary of D-Day.

    Accordingly, I post photos of the battleships that supported the invasion:

    HMS Rodney:

    Not only did she support D-Day, but also played a major role in taking out Bismark.

    Despite which, IMHO, along with her sister ship, Nelson, she was IMHO the ugliest battleship. Still, perhaps my personal favorite:

    Although not the most powerful, perhaps the most interesting Japanese battleships were the four Kongo class ships.

    The American Iowas actually were constructed specifically to ward off the threat the Kongos posed to American carriers.
