Upon my first look, I actually had an alternative answer. Left to right are predreadnought, dreadrought and superdreadnought!
All three ships destroyed by internal explosion, while at anchor, with heavy loss of life.
Liberté (represented by Navis Verite) blew up at Toulon 25 September 1911 with the loss of 286 men.
Vanguard (Navis) blew up at Scapa Flow 9 July 1917 with the loss of 843 men.
Mutsu (Neptun) blew up in Hiroshima Bay 8 June 1943 with the loss of 1,121 crew and visitors.
Jeff and Jim are each part right. The ships are from the left: Liberte; Vanguard; and Mutsu. All destroyed by accidental magazine explosions. First 2 are Navis, third appears to be Neptun. French Liberte was a Verite class BB.
Happy New Year to ALL. Let's hope 2022 is a little kinder to the world than 2021.
To start the New Year off, here is a new History Quiz: identify these ships (and models) and a historical connection between them. Take the model on the left as generic for her class.
