One of the most beautiful ships from that era that needs to be included. Here's a nice little vid:

 

 

Also mentioned in my pre-dreadnought thread as an exceptional BC:

Of course it’s a famous/desired ship; besides maybe USS Franklin, some of the American cruisers from Guadalcanal, and a Brit destroyer someone mentioned recently; how many ships can legitimately claim to have survived turret explosions; have earned a Dreadnaught, Fireproof, Unsinkable, and who knows what else in a single battle; (Jutland,) survive the battle and not sink until literally in dry dock; then survive the rest of the war?

why stop there? why not add all the German Battle Cruisers as well as the British ones? WE'd even be able to add the WW2 O class that was canceled due to steel shortage!:fish_book:

Hey 

Seydlitz  and/or Von der Tann would have been better than the PEF.  At least they would have been more interesting and should have performed better.  I'm sure  they would get screwed by "balancing" as we see so much with German ships.
