I thought Type U 142 was largest?
the U 142 was a type II D, hardly a contender for the biggest, 314/364 tones and 43.97 meters long against the type X B 1695/2177 tones and 89.8 meters long
Wrong U 142. Notice it was Type U 142
i never heard of type U 142,????
that i know:
II A,II B,II C,II D
IX, IX B, IX C, IX C/40, IX D
VII A,VII B,VII C, VII C/41,VII C/42
I A, VII D, VII F, U flak
X B, XIV, XXI, XXIII
V 80, XVII A, XVII B, XVIII

Well, I was waiting for you to tell if I was right. But then again, in this quiz we are not so strict with turns.
Now, first impression from that movie is that its name is wrong, that definitely isn't destroyer. I don t know any destroyers with triple turrets. Second thought was that russian light cruiser which broke its towing line back in 90's and drifted ashore in Norway. Scene from movie and comments back this thought. So I'd say its Murmansk.
Yes, you´re, coz of the terms "ever build", I didn´t know that there were larger subs in the First World War ?!
To the second quest., you´re right again, it´s the Sverdlov Class cruiser Murmansk. Here again I didn´t know that the Soviets build this cruiser class, wow !!!!!!! Nice one, even as wreckage!
Oh, I knew that Sverdlov because I asked same question (with foto that time) two and half years ago
Damn it, the shadows of the past reach til now
...however then again I take your part and ask this one, name this ship
is the Normandy cruise ship?
Yes it is, impressive one !!
Spark -> fire -> Water at wrong place -> list -> capsize -> spectacular picture.
another spectacular photo is the uss constellation on fire in new york navy yard, sadly my scanner went south, time to buy another one ( but no money )
ok, here is my question what does the submarine H-3 and the uss milwaukee have in common?
They are both water craft? :grin:
p.s. Here is a spectacular photo of the destroyer USS Shaw exploding at Pearl Harbor during the raid.
come on guys!!!!!
