Thanks everyone (although it is a bit late...)! Here is another small design, and among my favourite ships ever:
Small Seaplane Carrier for Commerce Raiding and U-Boat escort
This was one of the many aircraft carrier designs that popped up during World War II. The design was finished and submitted on January 30th, 1943 and depicted a small seaplane carrier for commerce raiding and u-boat escort. The second task was for u-boats on their way to the ‘hunting grounds’ in the Atlantic. The carrier had a through-deck hangar with seaplanes being picked up at the stern and moved to the front and catapult through the main body of the ship. Naturally, the design never left the drawing board.
- Length (overall): 131m
Length (waterline): 120m
Width (deck): 19m
Width (waterline): 15m
Side height: 14,4m
- Power: 30000HP (2 shafts/15000HP each)
Top speed: 26kn
Aircraft: 12xArado Ar-196
- 2x450mm (underwater torpedo tubes, presumable for 450mm F5b-Torpedos)
Any help and source material is always welcome.
