HMS Masculinity was a pansarbåt in the Swedish Navy. It was built in 1901-1903 by Kockums Mechanical Engineering and was the fourth and last ship in honor class. Huvudbetyckningen consisted of two 21 cm guns and sekundärbestyckningen of six 15.2 cm guns. At the beginning of World War II, the ship underwent a major modernization, which include bow was rebuilt, and during the war, she was flagship of Göteborgseskadern. Masculinity utrangerades 1947 and was scrapped in part 1952.



Masculinity after renovation in 1941.

The German Heavy Cruiser Blucher...young buna passes her resting place each time his ship is enroute to Oslo. He informs me oil leaks to the surface from her even to this day.

She is the largest WWII era warship to be preserved as a museun in the UK

Gotta hand it to the French - they knew how to build 'em UGLY!

This is Hoche, an early experimental battleship from about 1890.



And this is a good picture of her in port. Unfortunately I couldn't find a copy of the original picture, so this one is digitally colorized.
