A great top view would be awesome I will consider it. Something about halfway between Ranger and Lexington's deck arrangements, I think is likely. Interesting, looks quite top heavy and 'dumpy' but I guess that is due to the relatively stubby battleship hull. Certainly an interesting what-if concep...

It's been three years since I went and posted my version of an interesting carrier conversion I saw- the cancelled battleship USS Washington, (of the Colorado class and not Solomon islands fame), converted to a CV, some nebulous amount of time after work had begun on the Lexington class.

The last class of pre-dreadnought battleships in the Bahtiyaran Navy built before the advent of the dreadnought forced a worldwide shift to all-big-gun batteries, rendering her obsolete. Laid down in 504 K.E. and commissioned in 507-508 K.E., they were rendered obsolete immediately upon completion b...

https://i.imgur.com/AjXdobs.png Exactly what it says on the tin- the German superdreadnought SMS Baden depicted with a refit along the lines of battleships such as Tennessee and West Virginia that were most severely damaged in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

https://i.imgur.com/nCdh7fD.png The idea of aircraft carriers was always present for the Italian Navy, ever since the ship type existed.
