Beautiful ships, very modern looking from the front.
They look a bit like the modern Arleigh Burke class destroyers.

The similarities are indeed there, especially with the Kongo and Atago class.

Days are numbers for Daesh in Syria as they prepare for a possible last stand around Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Army are developing momentum around Sukhnah creating two big pockets as shown in this map.

Will the Deir ez-Zor defenders receive enough recognition here in the west?, seeing they are "filthy assad troopers"... who happen to be fighting for their own survival against the most cruel terrorist group right now.

Honestly, I don't think most people in the west even realize what's going on or that Deir Ez Zur even exists.  Lots of media outlets in the USA seem to think Raqqah and Mosul were the only places ISIS even existed.  I recall, during Mosul, places like CNN, BBC, etc claiming Mosul was "the last bastion of ISIS in Iraq" and shit.

Got to visit Fort Sumter on my trip to Charleston, SC this week.

Here's a photo of the fort as it stands today;


It's now designated as a National Monument. Inside the museum there is a very nice model of the fort as it stood in 1861 just before the American Civil War;


Also, a 100 pounder Parrott rifle;


I don't believe these guns were ever mounted at Sumter during any of it's battles. I think one of them was used by Union forces in a counterattack later in the war.

It's quite an incredible sight to walk around such a 'small' fort. It's very different being inside the walls where 85 or so Union soldiers held out while being surrounded by the enemy on 3 sides. 2 days of artillery shelling and not a single casualty is almost hard to believe.

An interesting fact that the tour guides liked to share was that Pvt. Daniel Hough was the first soldier to die during the American Civil War; not from enemy fire, but from an accident caused by a cannon that went off prematurely during a salute to the flag. Sadly ironic.

Here's an actual photo of a Confederate flag flying over Sumter after it was surrendered in 1861;
