I was wondering if anyone has any information or even drawings (of any kind) of the preliminary Edinburgh Class designs?
I read about them a while ago in Friedman's book on Royal Navy cruisers but have been way too busy since then to do any further research.
the designs i'm particularly interested in are:
KXIV with 5 triple 6" turrets
KXV with 4 quad 6" turrets
cheers.

I can't recall seeing any official sketches of KKIV or KKV in published sources. There was a KKV doing the rounds of the internet years ago but I think it was an interpretation rather than a real plan.

Smurf is the man to ask as he is a Royal Navy cruiser expert. He does visit here but infrequently. Perhaps try the All the World's Battlecruisers discussion group (https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/allthew ... ecruisers/) as I know Smurf is active there.
