From the standard, it looks like an Austrian vessel.

Ironically, they did have a navy in WW1

Imperial German Navy Ship Hessen in the Keil Canal around 1930.


The Hessen started life as a battleship in 1905. After World War I Germany was allowed to keep it for coastal defense. It was put in an auxiliary status. In the mid 1920s the ship was modernized and returned to battleship status. In 1935 she was reconstructed and became a radio-controlled target ship. She was given more powerful engines and a longer hull but had no armament. She was surrendered to the Soviet Union in 1946 and then served in the Soviet navy as the Tsel.

It seems that Thanatos and I share the same interests.
Tanks and pre-Dreadnoughts...

Anyway, this was correct.

I'll see if I can conjure up something more difficult next time.
