Note: Turrets are controlled by camera. "Turret Deviation/Dispersion" just means you widen your angle, the thingy on the planes that adjust the convergence of line of fire.

General Description:

Launched in 1906 and completed in 1908, HMS Agamemnon was the Royal Navy's second-to-last pre-dreadnought battleship to be built, followed by her sister ship, Lord Nelson. She was converted to a radio-controlled target ship following her return to the United Kingdom in March 1919 and began service in 1921.

Author's Notes:

Now, I'm not really sure which version this is because there's too many iterations of the Agamemnon that aren't exactly properly documented but judging from the turrets this is a refit.

Yes, I know there's a lot of details missing, such as anchor chains and multiple lifeboats. HOWEVER I am strict with modifications of our creation. Yes it is free to modify but if you were to upload a version such as a fixed, lesser parts, or just a repaint, at least ask me for permission first before uploading.

Finally; Obviously unfinished, my laptop can no longer handle the thing.

    Absolutely fabulous, well done sir!

    I tried to make something similar many, many, many years ago — it is so nice to see what is possible nowadays! My hat is sincerely off in respect!

    @Graingy Kek. Although here I thought the Yanks had it worse back during the years HMS Agamemnon was active? IIRC the Brits were pretty unionized during the 1910s and 1920s, the Yanks - especially the miners - not so much.

    FDR have the right idea on how to run a state, shame about the state of affairs after Richard Nixon though.

    YOu can often count on British warships to have awesome names.
