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.

It looks good

Poland has more unique warships to contribute than Canada.
