Late in the war the forward pole mast was replaced with a more substantial tubular mast necessary to carry the improved fire control equipment that ships were fitted with during the war. SMS Markgraf was built at Weser, Bremen (laid down November 1911, completed October 1914). SMS Grosser Kurfürst at the time of the surrender of the High Seas Fleet. The large white circles on the forward turrets were added late in the war to aid recognition of the ships from aircraft to help prevent "friendly fire" incidents.
