That’s a cool pic!!! Without reading what it was I thought it was Bismarck or Tirpitz at first glance.
I was on that ship a bit over a decade ago. I happened to be in Wilmington and stopped by to tour the ship. Had a great time.
I toured back in 1980 when I was posted at Ft. Bragg, NC. You’re right, it was a great tour.

Again, I don't write the stuff in quotes. Not even sure a Chinese captain was on either ship. ;-)

A bit hard for me to read but it looks like 27, 30, 32 knots. Was this group the fastest of all? I just wondered about the Missouri. Just because I have a couple of her models.
I put these up for the Rogues to review as much as anything.
