To the left side, are USS Detroit (CL-8) (inboard) and USS Trenton (CL-11) (outboard). Next to the two cruisers might "possibly" be barbettes from the Illinois (BB-65). Below them are HMS Rupert (DE-96) outboard of USS Olympia, and HMS Berry (DE-3).

Behind them is USS South Dakota (BB-57), she was already deactivated.

And this child won't stop coming home, I've drawn/summoned/built her like five times.

I am out of cubes again and I still haven't gotten Taihou. I am suffering but still having fun with the game nonetheless.
Oh an obviously from the new fleet picture, I finished building Neptune finally, and now I'm building HMS Monarch.

I have a bias for the Royal Navy fleet ok-

Viewed from destroyer USS Mayrant (DD-402) and flying two large battle ensigns, the brand-new South Dakota-class battleship USS Massachusetts (BB-59) maneuvers agressively during the battle of Casablanca, November 8, 1942. Boasting nine 16in. guns and a top speed of 27 nots, “Big Mamie” was Task Force 34’s insurance against a surprise appearance from the French battleship Richelieu. (Navsource)
