Sorry, no. The HINDUSTAN of 1841 was a wooden ship of the line. The Quiz ship was built of iron and steel vide #18173.

I guess it's the Romanian monitor "Basarabia" (ex-"Marx", ex-"Ujvidek", ex-K.u.K. SMS "Inn"), launched in 1915, captured by SU forces in 1944, renamed "Kerch", returned to Romania in 1951 and stricken in 1960.

I think it's a Saudi Al Riyadh class frigate
although there is a lot of similarity between a lot of 'stealthy' warships these days.

could be the Brazilian landing ship Duc de caxias.
She was an ex american county type landing ship. It looks as though the cranes were modernised for stulken types.
Also thaat looks like an attempt aat erasing sugar loaf mountain in the background.

No sugar loaf mountain removed. The mystery ship was built in the country that used it, although it was somewhat based on the De Soto class LST.
