It's that time again: US NAVY 2ND BATTLESHIP BRANCH PROPOSAL.
Inspired by this forum thread:
Not entering into details here they are:
TIER IV - FLORIDA
TIER V - OKLAHOMA
TIER VI - PENNSYLVANIA / Premium: NEVADA (post 1941 refit)
TIER VII - TENNESSEE
TIER VIII - SOUTH DAKOTA 1939
TIER IX - CONSTELLATION (Lexington-class battlecruiser)
TIER X - INDIANA (South Dakota 1920)
These of course, would be appropriately balanced by WG.
OK, 3, 2, 1, Discuss!

Design IV was chosen for further development and three additional studies, IV-1, IV-2, and IV-3, were prepared. At the request of Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels, these designs used 18-inch (460 mm) guns instead of the 16-inch (410 mm) 50-caliber guns used in the earlier studies. The navy decided that design IV-2 was the most practical (or perhaps the least impractical) and presented it to Congress early in 1917.
