Most Beautiful Ships in the Game. Your opinions?

Hey again!

So, I recently noticed a thread that outlines the ugliest, most hideous, and most disgusting looking ships in the game. Whether it be poor old Izumo or the Chester, whatever it was, if it was in the game and it was ugly, you'd find it there. 

So I had a thought. Instead of focusing on the negative aspects of warship design language, why don't we try and take a look at some of the nicer parts of warship design language, like the Bismarck and the Gneisenau ( and basically 85 to 90 percent of the Germans; If there's one thing they never get wrong, it's the design language ).

A good example is the Kurfurst. Yeah, sure, it's a massive bratwurst, but just look at it

Sleek, curved main hull, elegeant superstructures, raised Atlantic Bow, clean deck, just look at it, it's beautiful!  In fact, one of the main reasons that I grinded down the German Battleship Tech Tree was just to admire these warships in all their glory.

So then, what are the ships that you consider to be elegeant? If you have any answers, or if you have any questions, comments, or salt, do leave them down below

Sleek hull that tapers to a sharp point which allows her to gracefully and swiftly cut through the water. I also find the superstructures and funnels on top tier USSR CAs and BBs very aesthetically pleasing. WG always does an awesome job on the ship models.

Giulio Cesare is quite nice, as are the Zara-class cruisers.

but I think the most aesthetically pleasing are the Alsace sisters.

I always wonder how people see beauty in a ship. Yes, some are ugly but I do not find any beauty is a ship. It may be I look for function.

Roma. Stalingrad comes real close though. There's a bunch of others, but those two are on the top for me right now.

Lightning, she's a gorgeous ship.  Daylight second.

Udaloi is quite nice looking as well.

Scharnhorst

The Gneisenau, Tirpitz, and Bismarck also look good.

I'll second the Iowa/Missouri, and add the Salem/Des Moines.  I've always been partial to the Scharnhorst and as you can tell, I'm having trouble making up my mind.

Quite a few Ijn ships have sleek lines along with decent looking superstructures (from looking at them bow on).

I'd say Mogami as my first pick of the ships I have. Yamato is very 'clean' looking too.

Is this the best looking ship and cameo in the game ? - General ...

Yes but you should NEVER show her out of water. She looks like a pregnant skateboard. Only in the water is she sleek and shark like.

Yea your right I didn't even notice that till you said it . I just always think of her as beautiful especially the black version .
