Image description

The image shows a very large warship, armored, well-armed, mechanically propelled, by a fuel-driven engine, equipped with weapons, missiles, and large caliber deck guns with turrets, also with a small flight deck designed to take off or land aircraft.

The ship is seen from side, in the first image and from above, in the second image, in both directed to the left.

The warship, also called battleship, is the largest used by a naval force, better armed and armored than cruisers and destroyers.

The outer shell of the ship is called the hull and is marked embossed, has an elongated shape, rectangular, thin and narrow at the ends, where it extends to the top or bow, left and tail or stern, right.

The main or fore superstructure is the highest construction on the upper deck of the ship, from where the ship is steered. Here it is rendered by a rectangle with a narrower tip towards the top, filled with dotted texture, located in the central area of ​​the forecastle, meaning the forward deck of the ship, left.

The second superstructure from the stern, on the after deck, right, is rendered by a square filled with dotted texture.

Between the two superstructures are the smoke funnels, highlighted as a vertical rectangle, embossed, when viewed from side, and as an embossed circle, when viewed from above.

The battleship is made up of numerous workstations and combatant types:

  • the flight deck, which stretches almost the entire length between the aft superstructure and the stern, the far right.
  • under the deck are rooms with armament, heavy artillery, turret pedestals and lower hangars, served by elevators that can carry aircraft.
  • on the deck there is the fore superstructure that can consist of workstations installed on it which are the bridge with the fire control tower, chart room, radar-and-surveillance systems, the main battery control and rangefinder.
  • On the opposite side of the fore superstructure is the aft superstructure with the aft mast, the anti-ship missile launcher, and the close-in weapon system, ending with the flight deck from the stern, right.

To the left of the fore superstructure, on the deck, from side, are two turret guns, rendered as thickened vertical lines joined at the top by a horizontal line and are directed to the left.

To the right of the aft superstructure, on the deck, from side, there are two other turret guns, rendered as thickened vertical lines joined at the top by a horizontal line and are directed to the right.

Seen from above, the four pairs of deck guns with turrets, two right and two left, are highlighted as small, embossed squares, joined by a short line on the right side, for the ones in the right and on the left side, for the ones on the left .

The battleship floats on the water rendered by two wavy lines, horizontal and thickened, located below the ship.
