This class was ordered in April of 1915 as units of the Mackensen Class Battlecruiser with an increase in main armament from 13.8in guns to 15in. They would have had a similar appearance to their father class but would have slightly longer and used a single large funnel system instead of two. Only one ship of the class was laid down and was broken up with only 1,500 tonnes of work completed.
