A 9x15-in. gunned Salmon & Gluckstein? Nice! Can't wait to see Bismarck and Tirpitz and their successors! Would you please be so kind and explain what you mean by Salmon & Gluckstein? Regarding the two bigger capital ships, they will have the same main armament but in four turrets, Anton, Berta, Ca...

Two heavy heightfinders for a CVL is major overkill.
Since one is facing forward and the other one backwards, complementing each other in an 360º arc, could you please explain your comment?
