The greek historical cruiser warship averoff! Georgios Averof (Greek: Θ/Κ Γεώργιος Αβέρωφ) is a modified Pisa-class armored cruiser built in Italy for the Royal Hellenic Navy in the first decade of the 20th century. The ship served as the Greek flagship during most of the first half of the century. Although popularly known as a battleship (θωρηκτό) in Greek, she is in fact an armored cruiser (θωρακισμένο καταδρομικό),[1] the only ship of this type still in existence. #warship #battleship #greekwarship #ship #historical #monument #navy #army #ww2 #war #museum #tourism #tourist #touristattractions #travel #traveling #places #thessaloniki #greece #people #world #limanithessalonikis.

Portland Island Lighthouse was first constructed on Portland Island in 1878. Affectionately known as Old Faithful, it served for 80 years before being moved to its present site in Wairoa in 1955. It stands at only 8 meters tall, with the original lens assembly that is conservatively estimated to be worth well over $1 million dollars. Wairoa is about halfway between Gisborne and Napier. As you cross the bridge into the town centre it pops up right beside the bridge. #Wairoa #PortlandIsland #Lighthouse #light #island #woodentower #tower #HawkesBay #NewZealand #NZ #NZMustDo #destinationnz #historic #historical #maoripoppins #lighthouselicious #lighthousephoto @newzealandguide @destinationnz @beautiful.newzealand @purenewzealand @sealrockslighthouse @lighthousagram

The German Battleship Tirpitz anchored at Käfjord off the coast of Norway, March 1943. Named after Grand Admiral Alfred von Tirpitz, the architect of the Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy), the ship was laid down at the Kriegsmarinewerft Wilhelmshaven in November 1936 with her hull launched two and a half years later. Work was completed in February 1941, when she was commissioned into the German fleet. Like her sister ship Bismarck, Tirpitz was armed with a main battery of eight 38-centimetre (15 in) guns in four twin turrets. After a series of wartime modifications she was 2,000 tonnes (2,000 long tons) heavier than Bismarck, making her the heaviest battleship ever built by a European navy. After completing sea trials in early 1941, Tirpitz briefly served as the centrepiece of the Baltic Fleet, which was intended to prevent a possible break-out attempt by the Soviet Baltic Fleet. In early 1942, the ship sailed to Norway to act as a deterrent against an Allied invasion. While stationed in Norway, Tirpitz was also intended to be used to intercept Allied convoys to the Soviet Union, and two such missions were attempted in 1942. This was the only feasible role for her, since the St. Nazaire Raid had made operations against the Atlantic convoy lanes too risky. Tirpitz acted as a fleet in being, forcing the British Royal Navy to retain significant naval forces in the area to contain the battleship. In September 1943, Tirpitz, along with the battleship Scharnhorst, bombarded Allied positions on Spitzbergen, the only time the ship used her main battery in an offensive role. Shortly thereafter, the ship was damaged in an attack by British mini-submarines and subsequently subjected to a series of large-scale air raids. On 12 November 1944, British Lancaster bombers equipped with 12,000-pound "Tallboy" bombs scored two direct hits and a near miss which caused the ship to capsize rapidly. A deck fire spread to the ammunition magazine for one of the main battery turrets, which caused a large explosion. Figures for the number of men killed in the attack range from 950 to 1,204. Between 1948 and 1957 the wreck was broken up by a joint Norwegian and German salvage operation.
