You guys playing this game here because many reasons. I believe mostly are here because we love warships and History.
So let's have some game over here.
At first, I reference this idea back to below topic. And thanks to dseehafer ​for this interesting idea.
 
 
The game have a similar fashion like that one except some rules will be readjusted.
 
Description: I'll start posting warships picture and let you guys guess about ship class and name. Picture may contains only part of the ship, taken from the distance or blur for some challenging even unfinished ship also included. Once the picture is correctly identified, Me or you guys are allowed to post another one and so on.
 
Rules:  These are rule we should comply
- No Google hax: To make this game fair, using a google search tool for picture are not allowed unless you are going to post another picture to let us guess again. you can use some source like books or articles though.
- One answer per post: You can answer only one per post (number of posts are unlimited. So feel free to answer as many as you like.)
- Once the previous picture is correctly identified, others can post next warship picture and let us guess. Only one picture are allow here. and we have to correctly identify it before put another picture in and so on and so forth.
- Picture should not show ship name for challenging purpose.
- After the picture was identified, Please highlight as guessed for no further confusion  
 
Okay let's start with first picture (Guessed)

At first i thought it was a Myoko-class since i can only see the 3 front turrets layout but i don't feel that there is a bridge after the 3rd turret (and the turret's shape is somewhat not looks like Myoko or Takao-class so i guess it's supposed to be a Tone-class (maybe Tone herself?)

Pretty sure it's the Tone. None of the Myoko class survived, only the Takao survived of her class but she never sank, whilst the Chikuma was also sunk at sea.

Actually Myoko survived, but was later scuttled after the war. 

 

As for the picture itself, I'm very uncertain between Takao or Myoko. I'll leave with no answer to it

A part of the ship was concealed by a plane but i can clearly see the signature ridiculously high "Pagoda Mast" of the Fuso-class though i'm not sure if it's Fuso or her sister Yamashiro.

The only thing that can distinguish Fuso and Yamashiro is the 3rd turret which is not visible because the smoke hides it already.

O_O look like maybe fuso

Almost but still incorrect, The correct one is Yamashiro

Yes it was Yamashiro

You can look at Pagoda tower as well. Fuso has noticeable wing for her rangefinder on her pagoda while Yamashiro has straight tower and wing is not clear enough.

In that picture, Her Pagoda was clear enough to see that there is no wing on it and you can see that on third turret site has something like box toward the front so it seem to be 3rd turret facing rear.

 

Ok the next one is ... (Guessed)

I Think that is one of the Queen Elizabeth Class Battleships cause i see in the Back ground a AA with 6 barrel it kinda Blurry.  I am having a feeling that AA is a German Ship Cause it looks like the 3.7 Flakwirling 43. Maybe i am Wrong

Ayy, I'm at school, so sorry if the pic kinda bad, I just choose randomly from my ship bookmarks.

Ship with no bow

Take a guess, mates. The ship class is in the game too. I wish my damcon crews in the game is this dedicated.

Looks like a Baltimore-class, i'm guessing USS Pittsburgh who lost her bow in a typhoon
