Just a rare pic I really like... about as much as I like IJN BBs in WoWs. What beauties.

Someone name the first BB....

Kongo class judging by the tower and the superfiring twin barrel turrets.

I agree. It might be Hiei, judging by the general shape of the top of the conning tower.

I think it's Mutsu, or Nagato

I think the "ears" of the conning tower are too small to be Nagato's

The jury is still out. Superstructure details will do it

Yes that was what I was looking at and guessed Kongo. that distinctive front top mast. If we could see the rear smaller top mast it could be confirmed.

The "ears" you refer to is the optical fire control system for the main gun batteries.

Nagato or Mutsu, image search says Mutsu. Note the second row of secondaries above the bottom row.
