  1. 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!

      Well, that early version of the SD was quite overpowered. It's a matter of balance.

      I'd rather my home state be a premium ship than a main line. that way I can fly her flag on her and other ships in my port.:fish_book:

      plus I'm in the group who'd like one of those "tilman" designs to be a tier 10

       

      other than that I agree with your choices.:cap_like:

      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.
