Ooops. Please shift it over if you don't mind...been sitting on this info for a coupla days so urgency got the better of me...won't happen again.
Well it wasn't with income or inheritance taxes.
i still think that someone took a submarine or spacecraft and turned it in an armed coastal gunboat. it really is a miracle that it can move let alone fight.
those good looking pair are from this class of shipsDoh moment, sorry. the port is brest not toulon. Pay attention that man
Here is a picture from the same series showing t'other side of the ship which reveals the small black funnel actually belongs to one of the most bizarre ships i've yet seen..
still very few people although the dockside does appear as dirty as most i have encountered but check out that big crane in the background...jules verne stuff...
and these two in cherbourg...n'er a rivet in sight
are there any modern ships kicking about that look as sleek and well built as these two?
