D185 LÜTJENS

Final voyage of the german Charles F. Adams class destroyer D185 LÜTJENS. After she was decommissioned in 2004, she was used as an experimental ship by the German Navy. For a long time she was the flagship in the German Navy.

Sad sight! Its funny how only a few minor differences between the 3 german ships and the US/Australian ships gave them such a different appearance! The 3 german ships always looked very menacing!

Hello guys,
one of these "class 103 B" destroyers, the former D186 "MÖLDERS" was saved as a museumsship. You can visit her at the German Marinemuseum in Wilhelmshaven.

Can someone explain the "Blue Nose" to me?
Rommel was the third I think, funny how no one complained about the Germans naming ships after WW2 German war heroes, and yet the 'tree huggers' didn't want to name the Typhoon for fear of upsetting the Germans!

A blue nose is painted on the bow of a warship when she travels above the Arctic Circle.
I'm not sure about the red nose, unless it is a charity function - red nose day?
