Large, and smaller, tanks;

[ img ]
The "Pavise" Mark III, which entered production in 1919. A very large tank, following on the Pavise Mark I of 1916 and Mark II of 1918, it was the first vehicle to use the Hoffmeyer quasi six-stroke diesel from the start, replacing the naptha-fired steam of the Mark I, and the petrol aviation engine of the Mark II, and was best known for the truly impressive cloud of smoke in its' wake. Too tall, barely coordinated internally, and with poor arcs of fire from its' towering height, it saw desultory combat during the draw-downs at the end of the Great War. 1 x 3-pdr, 5 x 7mm Vickers MG, 1 x 95mm mountain howitzer.

The standard cruiser tank at the start of the Great Pacific War - a Christie-suspension 'cruiser' with armor of up to 50mm, it was one of the Hoffmeyer conglomerate's first big orders, beating out Vickers for the contract during trials in 1938. Fitted with a long 5cm anti-tank gun and a coaxial machine gun, this fast tank remained in service into early 1942, and in second-line roles thereafter. The second model, introduced in 1939, removed the wheel-running capability - other simplification for mass production was performed at the same time. Shown in paint scheme vehicles attached to divisional reconnaissance units wore during the fights along the Canal against the German and Italian invasion of Egypt.

Based on Australia, I had to use a (modified) AC Sentinel for something, didn't I?

Standard mid-war "heavy cruiser" shown in the early guise with the specially designed short 100mm gun-howitzer firing a 14 kilo shell. Many of the tanks sent to replace losses in the Aururian-equipped 1st New Zealand Armoured, 1st and 2nd Indian Armoured were fitted with Vickers 75mm HV guns before the last factory ceased production in late 1944.

Early-war infantry tank, replaced by "Melanippe" series starting in 1942, proved problematic in all but the most built-up areas of China, though satisfactory in amphibious assaults, once ashore. Many late-production vehicles supplied to foreign powers, bulk of units deployed to China gifted to army of Manchuko after peace with Japan.

From the looks of what you have crossdeck, the ship might be anything up to 40m wide. (or 924 x 131 ft). I do think you could probably carry something slightly bigger than 8x16.5" as a main armament. 8x18" or even 12x16" a'la Montana would not be out of line. A displacement of over 65,000-75,000 tons would be expected. (The Germans built what they did the way they did because they were 15-20 years behind everybody else in armour / propulsion and armament technology).

A complete list of ship details would be nice.
Displacement:
Dimensions:
Machinery:
Speed:
Endurance:
Armour: (details of belt/deck/turrets etc)
Armament: All its got right down to the smallest AA.
Aircraft: (number and types)
Crew:

It does not matter how you make those details available to the members, either in one solid block, or as statistics sprinkled throughout your text. As long as the information is there so that your ship can be gauged against either other real life or even other AU ships.

The ship itself looks ok. the blend of 3-4 different countries features does not clash. It looks like it should be.

Give yourself a big tick for putting a date on it.
