Hi all! The world's first heavy cruiser - although it was not called that at that time - was a design ordered by the Chinese Navy in 1913 from the Cantieri Navali Triestino yard (together with three much smaller scout/flotilla leader vessels). An obvious development of the Admiral-Spaun-class, the s...

Hi all! First things first: @Karle: All written sources I have checked claim the Novaras were designed with three 450mm twin torpedo tubes (except Conway, who don't mention any torpedo tubes at all, probably in error). Might I ask where you got the info the Novaras had only two twin TT sets? I'm not...

Hi all! Admiral Spaun and Novara-class scout cruisers A class of handsome cruisers which were the most active large units of the KuK navy during the war. They were among the first light cruisers with vertical armour (60mm) and were capable of 27 knots. The prototype Admiral Spaun had a complicated a...

Hi all and thanks for the praise! Just for completeness' sake: The Panther- and Tiger-class torpedo ram cruisers. Panther and Leopard were two small (1550 ts) Elswick-built cruisers the Austrians ordered in 1884 to gain insight in modern shipbuilding technologies; they were Austria's first steel-hul...

Hi all! Zenta-class protected cruisers: Aspern, Zenta and Szigetvar.

Other than that, there were n...

Hi BB!

How could I overlook this for so long? These are fantastic and totally believable. Production figures initially struck me as rather high, but then the war lasts a year longer in the Kokoverse, so they seem adequate.

Hi all! @Colombamike: Thank you very much, I've added the torpedo tube. As for the AA refit, sources - as usually - differ; Conway says 1 - 40mm, Navypedia says 1 - 40mm and 2 - 47mm. Your 1918 photograph shows 2 guns which might be 47mm on the rear turrets (at about 45° elevation, so they're AA) an...

Hi all! Austria's first armoured cruiser: Kaiserin und Königin Maria Theresia. A modestly sized (5.300 ts mean) ship of modest speed (19.5 kts) and modest protection (incomplete 100mm belt and 100mm turrets), but good armament for her size (2x 240mm and 8x 150mm plus 14 47mm), she was best compared ...

Hi all! This one would have been a very good design, had it appeared about five years earlier: The Erzherzog-Karl-class. Considerably larger than their predecessors of the Habsburg-class, these second-class battleships struck a fine balance between armour (210mm KC), armament (4x 240/40 and 12x 190/...
