Hi all,

Any idea about this image?
I know it is a very difficult question but....
It seems a lateral artillery turret, not centered so I think a German battlecruiser: von der Tann, Moltke, Goeben or Seydlitz

Can you read the cap band? I think there is something with "Kaiser"

hi,

IMO, there´s no battlecruiser name that fits the picture, Therefore: a battleship

Looking at all the possibilities, the most probable seems to be the two-word-name KÖNIG ALBERT of the KAISER-class

Hello,

The triple turrets rule out the German battleships, as well as British or French ones.
The lack of superstructure or funnel between the turrets excludes the Ganguts or Dante Alighieri.
The designs of the turrets does not look american.

Thus I would settle for a Tegethoff class.
