That is correct, +rep and your turn
Imperial Russian Monitor Smerch (Tornado). Built in 1863-65 in England, armed with a ram and two 9-inch guns. Hulked and renamed in 1904. Scrapped in 1959.
The flags were very helpful.
Please please please tell me that's the first ever amphibious armoured vehicle.
It's an experimental Mark IX, please post the original picture, its one I'd like to add to the archive.
*It's also the first dedicated armoured personnel carrier

EDIT: As usual I cannot rep you.
All 3 guns please.
BONUS, All three character names.
M1911A1, Steyr MPi81, Browning Hi-Power.
Ray, Gene and Chris.
This thread is all about searching in the right places.
Gene Hunt is a legend.
Fair enough, IMBD is useful, but how'd you get Ashes to Ashes?
You looked through every TV series with a Browning Hi-Power in it didn't you.
Either that or Gene Hunt is a global celebrity, or Ashes to Ashes aired in the Netherlands.
I'm onto you....
I've noticed this thread hasn't got an Lince follow up detective story...
