It looks like a cross between a USA Civil War ironclad and a WW2 ship.

If I remember correctly, this ship was moored in the Lynher River (off the Tamar) when I was an RN Apprentice in Plymouth 1963/64. One of the 15" guns from Roberts is now mounted on display as you enter the Imperial war Museum in London. This gun was also fitted to the battleship HMS Resolution - I served in the nuclear submarine HMS Resolution in the 70's
