Hi all! First: Unsurprisingly, the drawing is sublime. Kudos. Concur that these would not have made much sense. Still, they are the most promising design of the Z-plan IMHO. They certainly would have been terribly bad surface combatants, but they would have made superb carrier conversions. Greetings...

Hi all @Colombamike: The text below the drawing in the Gröner scan says it: 'TR-Satz wechselweise in den eingezeichneten Positionen' translating to 'TT-set alternating between the positions in the drawing' So there indeed was only one TT-set, sometimes mounted forward, sometimes aft. All is cool. BT...

Hi again! Something obscure: The only 'battleship' ever exported by an Austrian Yard to another nation, the Turkish central citadel ironclad Icaliye. At 2.300 tons, Icaliye was actually corvette-sized, but considered part of the battlefleet by Ottoman standards. She had two 234mm guns (forward in th...

Hi all Austria's step from the ironclad into the pre-dreadnought era: The Monarch-class coastal battleships. Three ships of some 5.600 tons mean, built between 1893 and 1897, named Monarch, Wien and Budapest. Speed (17,5 knots) and protection (the belt was 220 - 270mm Harvey steel) were adequate for...

Hi BB Now I know what you did last summer. Truly remarkable drawings, wow. No wonder you always win these challenges. Sincere thanks for not participating in the last one ;). A pity Koko does not build its own airplanes. The Zero was pretty outdated after 1942. A new fighter available in 1943 would ...

Hi all! OK, I started this, so I looked it up. Conway mentions the original armament indeed was Whitworth made, and replaced with British standard ordnance when acquired by the RN. Conway does not mention a larger caliber (317mm instead of 305mm), they just don't mention at all what caliber the new ...

Hi all! Austria's only pair of second class protected cruisers: SMS Kaiser Franz Joseph I and Kaiserin Elisabeth. They were ordered as an answer to Italy's Elswick-type cruisers Giovanni Bausan and her home-grown successors. They carried two 240mm guns in barbettes fore and aft, theoretically enabli...

Hello again! For variety's sake: A pre-pre-dreadnought, one of Britain's earlies turret ships: HMS Neptune Ordered by Brazil as Independencia, she was purchased by the RN in 1878 when war with Russia seemed imminent. The war could be averted, and the RN was stuck with a less than satisfying vessel. ...

Hi wb!

That's a real beauty, and really well drawn. Rather better than my own entry in the cold war bomber challenge, I have to admit.

Greetings
