There are pictures that show no torpedo tubes on the fantail. It does lend some credence to the article.

I found this on Wikipedia: "Novara was armed with nine 50-caliber 10 cm (3.9 in) guns in single pedestal mounts. Three were placed forward on the forecastle, four were located amidships, two on either side, and two were side by side on the quarterdeck. A Škoda 7-centimeter (2.8 in)/50 K10 anti-aircr...

Designs 4-1 and 4-2 had 18" guns, not 16. There were two designs with sixtuple 16" turrets, and two with triples. As for the shading, the light color is at the forward part. In SB style, light comes from the front, and up above. We usually don't shade it realistically with large sweeping shadows at ...

As the title says, this is the house of American horrors, that is to say the whacky, and sometimes monstrous designs produced by the US navy to either satisfy the whims of a US senator who was sick and tired of the ever increasing costs of battleship cough Tillman cough. Others are either fast battl...

If I recall the Novaria class did not have any fantail mounted torpedo tubes before 1916.

Here is the first appearance of the Tennessee class. Based upon my recent USS Washington drawing, I've made the neccessary changes to turn that drawing into the Tennessee as commissioned in 1920. Those changes are ofcourse replacing the 16" twins with 14" triples, removing the mast off of the fore s...

In my strive for ever increasing quality and improvement which has been greatly helped with a combination of AU-drawings and feedback recieved on Discord has led me to draw the USS Washington BB-47, the third ship of the Colorado class. She was 75,9% complete when she was cancelled in 1922. She woul...

American ships in this time period had split bilge keels. You see them using the more traditional single keel later on. The smaller ones at the bottom of the hull are docking keels. They help spread the weight out by providing more contact points on the structures that the ship rests on when in a dr...
