So I've been looking at some german designs and found something interesting.

 

Some proposals to replace the Panzerschiffe with new battlecruisers.  Particularly the O, P and Q classes.

 

Armament: 3x2 380mm (14.96"), 3x2 150mm (5.9"), 4x2 105mm (4.13"), 2x3 533mm Torpedoes

 

Length: 256m

Beam: 30m

Draft: 8.02m

35400t

 

Protection: Cruiser-Type

 

176,000 shp, allowing a maximum speed of 35 knt.

 

It's basically a mini-Gneisenau with lower armor values and higher speed.

And?

I found it interesting and worth polling a discussion about it on the forum.  Is there another reason one would post this?

I am just as confused - there does not seem to be a question or anything to discuss...

It feels like that would be implied... What it would be like in World of Warships.  The game of which forum we're on.

 

I feel like it'd be a Gneisenau.  That's faster.  With less secondaries.  Pretty much.

It would depend on how they model it.  Not sure it would fit in at all or where it would. 

We are in the forum but you have a statement - nothing else for anyone to go off of.  My original post would have been.... "Ok" had no one else posted.

It's always nice to have someone post about a ship that some may not have heard of.  If you're not interested just move on.  It could be a faster Graf Spee type.

This is a statement. No question was asked of the forum.

 

As for a ship in the game, currently the lowest 15in guns in the game are at Tier VI , the QE-class and Beyern. Being a 'Mini-Gneisenau', it would be placed here at VI, or no higher then Tier VII. It can't be placed any lower, and I just don't see it doing well in a higher tier.

Is not a 15" gun.  Is a 14.96" gun.  Quite a few germans I know are very particular/picky about that differentiation.

Here I thought this was going to be about a clan named OPQ trying to have a similar name to OPG :Smile_sad:

These concepts were part of Raeder's Plan Z for the fleet expansion. The are discussed in Chapter 5-Beyond Tirpitz in M.J Whitley's ''German Capital Ships of World War Two'' along with the FDG and GK paper ships that we already have in the game. My Kreigsmarine collection stops at Bismarck and Tirpitz. I don't bother with paper designs very much. Flogging a dead horse IMHO....
