Looks like german Bayern-class dreadnought - either SMS Bayern or SMS Baden.

Hi all,

I found on Ebay another photo with a WWI german battleship. I am not expert in WW1 warships so I need your help to identify it. Bayern-class perhaps??

Ahoj!
Maybe a SMS Koenig class ship. I see many similarities:

ADDED LATER:
The twin 28cm turret looks an even closer fit:

So, as we have superfiring guns, this narrows down the field to Moltke and "Fire Magnet" Seydlitz. But my feeling is that it's the latter.

Thank you very much for your links, Borys.

It is difficult to insure. It could also be a battleship of the Kaiser-class with 30.5cm guns, no? The turrets with guns of 30.5cm and 28cm are very similar. :?

You might try posting them over on the kbismarck forum. Some pretty knowledgeable types over there in regards to German ships.

Ahoj!
Yes, Kaiser class also possible. After taking a better look, I would even exclude the Koenig class, and say that - if it were a 30,5cm turret - it in fact is a Kaiser class ship. I believe we can see the Emil turret (the port wing turret).
So - Kaiser class or Seydlitz ...
Of course, I can be wrong.

Not Seydlitz...

Note the tall funnels above the searchlights which indicates Kaiser class.

That would be Linienschiff Elsass.

Hello!
First one looks like one of Kriegsmarine pre-dreadnought battleships - Schleswig-Holstein or Schlesien, or may be one of older Reichsmarine panzerschiffs.
Second ship is British Leander-class light cruiser.

Best regards, Aleks
