Great work on your latest L20 design, L28. Is this a 6x16" (16.5") gunned ship?
It is also interesting then to compare this thread with the thread Karle94 is producing with his 'Proposed New Mexico' designs. Many of the design parameters seem to be similar in nature, but the German designs look to be faster overall.
Hi Krakatoa, thank you. and to answer your question; yes the L 28 was armed with six 42cm L/45 guns in a 3 x 2 arrangement. It was an attempt to design a large combat ship (fast battleship) that could actually be built by the existing facilities in the immediate post-war period. With the limitations of the design it was decided that the first series of ships built during the post-war period would not be a fast battleship but separate battleship and battlecruiser designs.
All the best
