I have seen the stats for some of the pre-Deutschland ships, but never visualised what they might look like.

Well done in bringing these to life DG_Alpha.

Really interesting, my favourite part of SB is the series of unknown (to me) ships that come around from time to time. :ugeek: 8-) :D

Really think that the RN missed a beat by not suggesting the II/10 was ok to build, would have look a good option and later been very Baltic limited ;)

This time with top view:

Design Study II/30
When Admiral Zenker took over the German Navy in 1924, the design works were revived and once again the question was: Monitor, Battleship or Cruiser? By this time, the engine type was switched to diesel. Notable about all the following design studies was therefore the missing or rather small funnel. Design Study II/30 was of the battleship type, with six 305mm guns in three twin turrets. Flak caliber was increased to 105mm in single mounts. Those familiar with German cruiser designs will recognize the turret layout, as the two aft turrets were both off-center to increase the firing arc. The navy was once again unsure which design type to choose, as was there uncertainty about the gun caliber: Whether or not the allies aould allow anything about 280mm wasn't clear.

Technical data:
-length: 132m
-width: 22m
-draft: 6,5m
-speed: 21kn (24000HP, three shafts)
-armor: belt 200mm, deck 25mm
-weapons:
-3x2x305mm main artillery
-3x1x105mm flak
-2x533mm torpedos (underwater tubes)

The ship itself is a bit on the ugly side, but the drawing is the usual top-notch stuff you always deliver. Great work, and nice to see all those almost unknown designs.

Definitely a different design. That tiny funnel for exhausting the 24,000bhp engines gets me.

Well drawn DG_Alpha.

Awesome work on this! But yes, I was worried for a second that it wasn't done! :D
