"Whether it's due to treaty restrictions, resource limitations, or just bad engineering, the annals of naval history have no shortage of eyebrow-raising ship designs…."

I love that page. Using it for research for a project, actually. Fingers crossed. Definitely worth a read.

Glad to see that the Novgorod was first on the list.

My favourite Habbakuk story is of the demonstration to the top brass of the qualities of pykrete. To show it's strength, the attache – Lord Louis Mountbatten, no less – drew his service revolver and fired into a block of the stuff. The shot ricocheted and hit the US Admiral Ernest King in the leg.
