here a model of a so-called treasure ships.

 

Zheng He came from the Chinese province of Yunnan, was born in 1371, his name was originally Ma He. He was castrated as a child of twelve, and came into the service of the Ming prince and future Emperor Zhu Di.

Zhu Di recognized the talent of Zheng He and asked him a fleet available with which this was to sail around the world and bring him wealth, power and above all trading partners.

In the period of 1404 and 1433 Zheng He is repeatedly broken up with a fleet that has unparalleled wanted in their time. The largest ships were up to 135 meters long, 50 meters wide and had nine masts. Columbus' ship was five times smaller than these massive nine-masters of the Chinese navigator Zheng He. And that these were not so easy to navigate, you can certainly imagine you.

Zheng He comes to East Africa, from where he brought his emperor even a giraffe. Whether or not the animal has, however, felt well in China, we do not know. They say even that his Zheng He came to Europe and America.

However, under the successors of the Emperor Zheng He was never more appreciation as before. Although he broke even on the road and came to the Red Sea, but his fame waned and he came after his death in 1433 in the Indian Calicut into oblivion.

Probably Zheng He discovered many countries long before the Spaniards and Portuguese. But everyone wanted to be the first and therefore it has been silent about one of the most talented sailors long time.

Way off topic, BUT, given the odd hull shape of the turtle boat, is this the oddest shaped steel hull you've ever seen or what?  It's the French Battleship Charles Martel.

Or this one, the Carnot

It looks like a Battleship sailed through an apartment block and the apartment block got stuck on...

 

Are those windows gunports or just windows?
