SMS Hansa was a German ironclad warship built in 1868–1875. She was the first ironclad built in Germany; all previous German ironclads had been built in foreign shipyards. She was named after the Hanseatic League, known in Germany simply as Hanse, Latinized Hansa. The ship was launched in October 1872 and commissioned into the German Imperial Navy (Kaiserliche Marine) in May 1875. Designed for overseas service, Hansa was classed as an armored corvette and armed with 21 cm (8.3 in) guns in a central battery.

Lookin' pretty good!

I do have a couple of quibbles, though:

1. Everything seems to be moving really fast, like it's in Time Acceleration. This is especially so in the second video.

2. The mechanism of pausing the game and taking all that time to set up a torpedo shot seems kind of clunky. I'm not sure how I'd do it, but for me that was like freezing time as a game mechanism.

Thank you Sir!

1. Feelings of time acceleration when watching a video and during the game are very different. Acceleration is a very useful feature for the battles of large armored ships. Large guns of ironclad battleships reloading slowly, there are few such guns, and their accuracy is not very high. Without time acceleration the ironclads battles will be too long.

2. Unfortunately, in those days, torpedoes were fired very simply: ideally on direct fire. The TB or destroyer had to get as close as possible to the target and launch a torpedo. For example, in operations in the area of Port Arthur, the Japanese fleet launched 170 torpedoes, of which only 8 hit Russian ships. The success rate of torpedo attacks was 4.7%.
