I think we can all agree it is a ship, but what is het class name? I think she is Brit or Jap.

my first impression is jap...looking at the bridge structure "pilothouse"...being on a laid back angle...and the very forword mounting near the bow.. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif...however..the stubby bow makes me look twice..but i'll put up a pint..."make that a black/tan.." on the bar it's jap... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Looking at the funnel tops, I'm guessing Japanese, but I could be wrong. Those gun turrets don't look quite big enough for a Yamoto(?) class.Forgive my spelling on that, perhaps somebody can correct that too.

It is nothing like Yamato. Nore does it remind me of any Japanise BB's.

Looking at the turents, I would say this is a cruser of some sort.

This ship looks more modern then a WWII ship.

She is a cruiser, and any thing more modern would have rockets on it.

Through my periscope I'd identify a Fletcher (squared bridge) modelled by a drunken artist...

Don't believe it?

Look at this: Fletcher 1 (http://images.google.de/imgres?imgurl=http://abbot.us/DD629/links/fletcher.jpg&imgrefurl=http://abbot.us/DD629/links/&h=167&w=300&sz=16&hl=de&start=44&tbnid=S5k-9ii-hbDbYM:&tbnh=65&tbnw=116&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dfletcher%2Bclass%26start%3D36%26ndsp% 3D18%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Dde%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN)

Scroll down and check the Lego-Section too!

Bow is way too long and rounded to be a fletcher.

Could be the Yuhagi. It's definitly a light cruiser.

She is not a Agano,

Her file name was savanh, that couldn't be a short name for Savannah could it?

Actually i thought about the Yubari but it isn't either. Just looked at www.combinedfleet.com (http://www.combinedfleet.com) , she's no Japanese.

If you mean the Yamato class then you found it correctly with the BB.
The Yamato class are BB's but if I remembered it correctly the Yamato was the only one in it's class.

There were three in the class initaialy.

Yamato, Musashi and the third one being laid as BB but completed as an aircraft carrier - Shiniano.

Exhaust tips have a Japanese flair to them. Other than that it could be anything http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Looking at the size of the life boats it looks like it should be a destroyer. The gun configuration and squat superstructure resemble a fletcher as do the funnels but then her bow sticks to far out front.

Silly me, forgot to tell you what it is, Fletcher class US DD.

Yes it is definatly a DD, it was modified DD after the war. The first torpedo mount was removed to add more flack cannons.
