The battleships of this era are all kinda ugly, form over function I guess, but this one is indeed spectacularly so.
Thanks to Colin C. for the tip.

    No, not particularly ugly.
    And if you feel it is ugly, then your complaint should be “function over form”.

    You chose this one over the French battleships from the same era?! Have you never seen pictures of the French battleship from late 19th century? Try looking up Charles Martel, or Massena, or Jauréguiberry, or Henri IV (the French Wikipedia article about that one has a particularly ugly view of her from the aft quarter), or pertty much any and all large French warships, be they battleships or armoured cruisers, from the 1870s through to around 1910. Surely the only thing ever afloat uglier than those things, would be the ferry ‘Pride of al Salam 95’.
