Whaleboats aboard a sub! How times change.

Excellent research and drawings, as usual.

Nice catch!

(I can't even IMAGINE producing a drawing like that before the computer age...)

Certainly seems within the scope of the reasonable. Would we not expect 5/25s to be shipped in numbers by this time? The forward above-deck 5/51s would seem like a logical trade-out, along with the 3" mounts.

You've got some stray purple in the top view around the midships boats.

Hood, I'd expect her to lose a lot of armored deck and probably take on ballast in return. Although honestly, I'm not sure how thick decks were circa 1919.

I could get into a litany of reasons why this conversation probably wouldn't make a ton of operational sense, but it's very nicely drawn. I echo matedow's technical comments.

One minor detail that seems goofed up: the forward boat boom seems to have some rigging covered up by 5/25 positions.

The external torpedo tubes are quite peculiar.

These are, of course, excellent drawings.

Designing a wire feed for a supercavitating rocket torpedo would be quite an engineering challenge ;)

Quite a remarkable evolution, especially in the secondary armament.

Excellent drawings, and it's always nice to learn something when I'm reading one of your series :)

Planform alignment is not the same as simply counting the number of individually constructed facets. And of course, large planar surfaces are more important than small ones, so large surfaces are more likely to be normal-aligned. The F-117 and F222 are actually perfect examples of this. Heuhen, you ...
