Fullbore Friday

Well, in honor of the anniversary of Charles Martel's most famous victory, I give you the French pre-Dreadnaught Battleship, the Charles Martel.

I have tried to find something she did from a warfighting standpoint, or a picture of her guns doing some business - but rather funny being that it is French - I could find none. Well, there is one thing the sub guys might like, she was on the receiving end of what looks like the first torpedo (practice) to hit a moving ship from a submarine - in 1901.
