I like those lesser known building programs of smaller navies. It's nice to see them visuallized, even with a personal spin on it. Great work!

That Emden drawing you reference is the drawing I used as the basis for the German 'Medium' cruiser drawings I did awhile back. I have seen your ships. You certainly have some interesting ideas. Spent the last few days on this one: More a direct post-war design study, a medium cruiser with 170mm gu...

"SMS Berlin 1925" In the "Neverwere" section, the date usually refers to the design study, doesn't it? In the Never-built-section, yes, but I haven't actually decided what counts for "Berlin" yet. It's still a work in progress after all. "The turrets are once again based on the Königsberg-class" do...

The original Emden design was designed with open-back shielded twin-mounts, but that was vetoed by the Allied disarmament comitee. Also, she was designed imediately after the war, when Germany needed modern cruisers. Here, with the Cöln-class completed, Germany has more time and freedom to came up w...

Design I/35 This one was another monitor-type, this time in a flush-deck design. As the name implies, the main artillery calibre was increased to 350mm, the firepower concentrated in a single triple turret mounted at the bow. Additional firepower was provided by two 150mm twin turrets aft and two 8...

The hull shape is a cross between the Emden and Königsberg , but maybe I need to work on the details. though I think the turrets look somewhat too modern. The turrets are once again based on the Königsberg- class. I figured that without economic crisis, Versailles oversight and occupation, a turret ...

Edit: fixed a color mistake in the guns of design V/30. Thanks for all the kind words, much appreciated. Where was the diesel exhaust on the 1925 ships? I thought it might have been the foremast but that seems too far forward. They don't seem to have one. My guess is that either they were so early i...

Once again trying my hands at a fictional design for a victorious Germany after WW1. A light cruiser around 6000-7000t displacement, armed with 4x2x150mm, 4x1x88mm Flak, 4x2x20mm FlaMG and 4x2x600mm torpedooes. It's supposed to be a trader-of-all-master-of-none cruiser for all kinds of mission, from...

3. The AU US Navy has been metric ever since 1888 when they adopt Krupp artillery instead of the appallingly awful Whitworth guns the Endicott mission selected. Mister McKinley's navy if you had not noticed, uses German technology right down to the Schwartzkopf torpedoes. Just as a side node, to my...

Design V/30 This design moved from twin to triple turrets for the main artillery, arranged in one turret fore and aft. Secondaries were increased by one additional twin turret, while flak moved to the tried-and-trusted, albeit old 88mm single emplacement. Performance-wise, this design was identical...
