Uh, I just realized that DeliciousFart labled Zao as a fantasy ship.  It's technically a fully designed ship, but "Heavy Cruiser Design Study Type A 1941" is a really terrible name for a ship.


Type A Cruiser:
This ship was designed in early 1941 for the Dai-Roku-Ji Kaigun Gunbi Hojū Keikaku (Sixth Naval Armaments Supplement Program), also known as Maru 6 Keikaku (Circle Six Program) but the plan was quickly shelved and replaced with the 1941 wartime construction program in september 1941.
the 1941 Type A cruiser was planned as an eight-ship class, 218 meters long, armed with twelve 8-inch (203mm) guns in triple turrets and twelve 3.9-inch (100mm) guns in twin turrets (the same model that would eventually see service with the Akizuki class destroyers) and a 5.5-inch(140mm) planned armour belt would have been a match even for the Des Moines heavy cruisers (at least in terms of dimensions and firepower).

The Zao seen in game is fake because the real blueprints for the 1941 Type A cruiser no longer exists. The ship in game is based on a magazine drawing of what they think the ship might have looked like based on the Naval Rearmament Program requirements.

Orlan, the tier 1 Soviet cruiser, is a paper design.

As is the German T1 Hermelin.

I looked to see if non-paper could've been used instead, I couldn't find anything for Germany and only the Soviet non-paper option I could find would've been a bit unconventional since it's a river monitor. But hey, it's T1. It doesn't really matter if the ships there are over or underpowered.
