This ship was a Moltke class BC, which was chased through the Mediterranean at the start of WW I, it ended up in the Ottoman Empire- which ultimately became Turkey. It later became part of the Turkish Navy - what was this ships name while in the Turkish Navy?
BC was the Goben became Turkish Yavuz broken up mid 1950s

Maybe the FAA's attack on Taranto confoirmed Yammaotos planning but by Nov/40 the IJN was planning an attack on Hawaii. Gues the British just proved that it could be done and with airvraft that got on & out with minor losses 2 ac I believe ..

Not a quiz question but research question...

I'm looking for identification of this cannon, mount, and ship. Hopefully that will lead to a illustration identifying the parts of the cannon and mount

Thanks for any leads
