SMS Fürst Bismarck[edit]

OriginalSMS Fürst Bismarck, an early German coastal defense ironclad. Only ship in her class, served in WWI, but, by then, was very outdated.
Reason
Part of my "Ships that are moving towards Featured Article" series, while not the most dramatic clouds, it's a well-done, detailed lithograph of a ship in sail, quite visually appealing, and, of course, useful.

  • Support — Another sterling pic., comparable to that of SMS Kaiser Wilhelm II. (Suggest "terribly" in cutline be changed to something like "seriously.") Sca (talk) 14:59, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
    • You're probably right, though I don't think anyone ever looks at these captions again once the FPC closes. @Crisco 1492: Do you use the captions on the nomination at all for Today's Featured Picture? Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:16, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
      • No, I don't. Unless the subject is so technical that I can't understand the article. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 23:14, 16 March 2014 (UTC)
