Almost recovered, but still tired - so have an unambitious piece of quick concept art.   This is a large ‘monitor’ - a type of vessel designed purely for bombardment and nothing else.  The Royal Navy pioneered the type in WWI by mounting surplus battleship turrets on specialized hulls, though the concept of the specialized bombardment ship dates at least to the bomb vessels created by the French in the late 1600s.

Such vessels are a much more cost-effective way of bringing highly mobile artillery onto the land front than using capital ships for bombardment purposes.
