Just a suggestion as a fantasy but plausable ship... if the big H on the surface on the stern is an heliport... all the obstacles on the approach path should NOT be there, those 2 57mm turrets, the director sight and the small radar turret are on the most dangerous place for an helicopter to land on that pad. On a real ship, they would NEVER be there unless that big H is not an helipad.

Helicopters were never invented during WW2 by the french

The big H is short for "How is my driving" for the planes that went overhead.

I don't think a heli pilot would be to happy with 4 guns facing him either.

This is one area where the Americans had the lead in technology. Igor Sikorsky had the first factory production helicopter, the R-4, in 1942. It first flew in 1939. 

 

Sikorsky also designed the F4U Corsair.
