Howdy Rodondo, I cant see any reason why the HMAS Australia (1911) could not still exist. I could have named my ship HMS Redoubtable or any of the other 'R' names available but I had it in mind for a future AU that Australia could have an R class BC to back up the CA's and CL's. I named it Australis...

JSB: 15" - there were not enough spare turrets left to build another BC, besides as I say there are the spare 14". 9x14 gives as good a weight of broadside as 6x15. Other factor is you are more likely to achieve a hit with 9 guns than you are with 6. Only down side is the smaller shell. Remember the...

German inspired ships will always have a weaker looking AA fit than its UK/US opponents. The Prinz Eugen from Wiki shows the following armament: Armament: 8 × 20.3 cm (8.0 in) guns 12 × 10.5 cm (4.1 in) guns 12 × 3.7 cm (1.5 in) guns 20 × 2 cm (0.79 in) guns (20 × 1) The Tirpitz in 1944 still had it...

With the Chilean battleship Almirante Cochrane slated to be converted to HMS Eagle, this left a pool of 10x14" guns available for placement on another ship. As a personal design I postulate they go to arm a 3rd Renown class battlecruiser. I fit 9x14" in three triple turrets. This requires a slightly...

3rd revision. It has been an interesting learning tool as this is my first post-war vessel. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/n9rcnxj1v3ehwq0/TCG_Torgud_Reis_%28BCG-1964%29-21.PNG To answer the queries. I do not think those are mines or depth charges on the stern, they would be tie off points for ...

In 1939 the Turkish Navy looked to replace the aging Yavuz Sultan Selim with a new ship. An order was placed with SECN in Spain based on the designs of the little known Naval Architecht Heuhen Heuser (thanks to Heuhen for allowing me to use his PD for this). With aid from Germany in the design, a ba...

JSB: refurbishing turrets to improve elevation was done by both the British and Italians. Their answer to the problem was to lower the floor of the turret to allow the guns to pivot further and thus increase the elevation and range. The British also introduced a 'super' shell to increase the range o...

It is interesting for the Dutch that the SMS Oldenburg 12-12" (6x2) was scrapped in Holland. Who is to say for this challenge that the Dutch kept those 6 turrets and used them to either build 1 BC with 8x12" or 2 CDS with 6x12". The Dutch were very capable of building big ships but did not have the ...

Long time lurker, this is my first attempt at a SB drawing. Its a kitbash, my skills are not good enough yet to draw from scratch.
