I've added the USS New Hampshire in 1914, and the all new South Carolina as she appeared in 1910 and 1914 with some backstory explaining why she was so different from the previous ships.

"Improvements in the engines and the boilers reduced the numbers of smoke stacks from three down to two."

Would that be a move to turbines? The timing would be about right with a completion date of 1910. That would also give an improvement of speed as well. Say from 20 to 22 knots.

I am unsure as to whether I want to commit to turbines this early. The real US Navy did not. If you remove a few hundred tons, and make some small streamlining to the engines and boilers, you can easily get 1 knot more top speed.

I've added the battleships BB-27 through 32, that is the Michigan to the Wyoming. That is a total of 6 battleships and some backstory to go along. My design for the Wyoming is the Fore River design that would be the inspiration for the design of the Rivadavia.

Awesome work! Can't wait to see further versions of these vessels, meaning what happens during WWI and beyond!

Wyoming looks like a monster of a ship. Certainly wouldn't want to cross paths with her in wartime.

So I've been working on some foreign designs, including;
Two battleships with 8x12" guns for the Chinese, these would be halted and be redesigned to take 8x14" guns, as well as a pair of battlecruisers that would be cancelled and be replaced with two "dreadnought-style" armored cruisers with 12x10" guns.

A battleships design for the Ottoman navy with 10x14" guns being of the same size as the HMS Erin.

A more "Americanized" Rivadavia class for Argentina.

An American design for the Greek Salamis class.

With this information I leave you with a question, is there any other nation I can make plausible designs for, and also what type?
