The class was programmed that way, but I don't recall if the 14" version was still intended as steel was laid down.

A very nice rendering, although I can't say I'm a huge fan of the design. Would there really not be any AA fit by 1925? Also, how would the freestanding 5/51s be served with casemated guns on the same level behind them? I hunted down the spring style, and your secondary fit is wrong. There should be...

Those countries that made an allowance to allow a new gun size to be fitted later, Japanese, as erik-t said (6" to 8"), Germans with the Scharnhorst type (11" to 15"), uhmmm there aren't that many examples, still found problems to surmount. Well, that's true for large calibers. The Standards went t...

I would tend to be skeptical of substantial up-gunning in any turret, since turrets were very nearly wrapped around their guns. Recall that the Iowa program faced a near-crisis just from the barbette diameter change associated with going from the 16"/45 to the 16"/50! Of course you can sometimes pla...

Marvelously drawn. My only criticism, and it's kind of a big one, is that it appears as though the stern lateral thrusters are going right through the shaft line ;)

Ah, okay. Conventionally, we would demarcate the bottom of the forward director tower with a black horizontal line rather than a gray one, because right now it looks like the tower is coming up directly from the side of the forward superstructure. I didn't want to overly focus on that, mostly I thin...

I don't remember if they're -242's or -283's.

It's hard to justify two forward directors in any case; they'd block each others' field of view to an extent, and it's not obvious how you'd split eight mounts among five directors. 1-2-1 or 2-2 makes much more sense - the former gives better crossing handoff over the bow and stern, and the latter w...

By no means my favorite class of US CA's from an aesthetic perspective, but certainly one of the best-drawn ;)

This is a beautiful drawing. I particularly like how the superstructure fits within a single container-length block - this wouldn't be critical from a design perspective, but I can totally imagine it shaking out this way in real life for ease of design and construction. A few thoughts... . Perhaps m...
