I've added the SMS Szent István as she appeared in 1915. The Viribus Unitis and the Prinz Eugen has taken the backseat, as they did not differ from the Tegetthoff in any observable way, the Istvan did. She had two larger propellers, instead of four smaller ones. The platform above the bridge extende...

I've added the Tegetthoff as she appeared in 1912 with the overall green paint scheme. The old drawing has been modified to become the 1914 appearance of the Tegetthoff, but with the addition of blast bags, and torpedo nets.

The bluish grey, and the green is easy to understand, as several nations did something similar. Pink however, is a rather unconventional color.

Since my US AU us in a rut, as of lately, I've been doing some other navies stuff. Included in that section, is a version of the Tegetthoff, but one that is not cripled with a severe case of top heaviness courtesy of having 4 tripple turrets on a flush decked hull. So I thought, since all I had to d...

As for size, I think it looks good, although considering some of the scout "cruiser" designs the US came up with around 1914/15/16 period, this is rather small. I reckon a commisioning date around 1913/14, although I could make it earlier, let's say 1912, without having to change any features. As fo...

So, I've started working on a light cruiser class for the US. Seeing as how the US entered the WWI period without any modern cruisers, I naturally, must correct this. Seeing as there are no actual designs for such a ship, I have to come up with everything my self. I would like some of your input on ...

Armor? The same. I did consider making the armor increase uniform, instead of just adding it to the front half, but that would add far more than "just" 5000 tons of extra armor. I've thought about doing that, and adding bulges straight away, sacrificing 2 knots in 1920 is better, and gain a couple o...

It is compensated by keeping the original design draft. Irl the Hood was weighted down so much that water swamped the quarter deck. By slightly increasing the Hood's overall deck height by roughly one meter (3pxls,) I can have the draft a little bit deeper than in real life. Some drawings have the H...

More or less. It will be a sort of "cut down" version of the Admiral class, but with 8x16" guns and much more armor. The idea is that it is a response to the Nagato and the Colorado.

Because I might play with it a bit in the future, here is the HMS Hood as commisioned in 1920. Now you might be thinking, what is different about the Hood? Well, apart from using the same turret as the earlier ships, I've corrected the single, biggest flaw of the Hood; the non existing freeboard at ...
