another design study made in late 1940, called the "1940B":
Like the "1940A" it was designed with a mixed propulsion system of Diesel engines and steam turbines.
The armament returned to the classic eigth-barelled layout instead of the "1940As' " peculiar six-gunned design.
Main calibre was to be "bigger than 40,6cm", but since no other info is availabe, I decided to keep the 40,6cm guns in this drawing.
Stats according to german-navy.de:
Displacement: 70.000 tons
Length: 299,8 m
Speed: 32,3 kn
And as always
: The reference material was a bit "basic", so some guesswork had to be done on this "never-were" drawing...
Only the "H41" to go...
Thanks for looking!
