Hats off to you BB 1987, these really are beautifully drawn ships.

These are excellent, and your whole take on the Imperial navy, keep up the good work :)

I've come in possession of some new evidence/sources about the 8-8 fleet battleships, this small chart here in it's simplicity poves wrong some of the denominations i had found for some of the battleships posted previously in this thread.
[ img ]
[ img ]
None of the drawings themselves sport errors of any sort, yet the letters associated to most battleships posted in the first page needs to be fixed:
Battleship "B" is now Battleship "F"
Battleship "C" is now Battleship "G"
Battleship "E2" is now Battleship "I"
Battleship "F" is now Battleship "L"
Battleship "G" (better known as the N°13 Class) is now Battleship "K"

Battleship "A" (better known as the Kii Class), Battleship "D", Battleship "E" and Battleship "H" are correctly named and will not be re-labeled.


This means that, four new battleships needs to be added to the tally, the first two coming already with their own drawings:

Battleship "B" armed with 12x16.1-inch guns in four triple turrets
[ img ]

Battleship "C" armed with 12x16.1-inch guns in three twin and two triple guns
[ img ]
note how (like on the battleships sporting the twin/quad configurations) the superfiring guns are those wich sported the more barrels; pretty much the trademark of Yuzuru Hiraga, if you guys remember about the late 20s projects of a kongo-replcement battleship, also done by him.

Battleship "J", wich beign a battlecruiser version of "I" differing only in armor values may not have an own drawing.

Battleship "M", a 57.200-ton behemoth armed with 12x18.1-inch guns in triple turrets (!), will come (hopefully) shortly, after that i'll update the first post with all the relabeled and recently added battleships.

This is why you are the master and I am just a single peasant... even when I have knowledge around the Norwegian Navy... but it is just so small... I think it's time for me to adopt something else.

Fast Battleship J (or Battlecruiser J), a toned down version of Battleship I, with the same armament but a 12-inch belt compared of the 13-inch one of her sibling:

And finally Battleship M, the twelve 18-inch-gunned monster:

i'd like to add, just for the fun of doing it, that this beast was designed some 15 years boefore Yamato.


So, now (hopefully) this thread can be called fixed and completed, i've updated the first page too, so you can find the whole Hachi-Hachi fleet lineage there.
