Good people, who have traveled from villages near and far. Lend me your ears!

My next in-depth proposal for a premium ship will be about the Germaniawerft 803 design for the Dutch 1913 battleship project.

However, my information on her armor profile is scarce, I just have the following numbers:

  • Belt: 150 - 250mm
  • Bulkheads: 200mm
  • Barbettes: 110 - 300mm
  • Torpedo bulkheads: 40mm
  • Deck: 25 - 50mm
  • Conning tower: 200 - 300mm

But to maintain the standard of quality of my in-depth proposal threads I need more information. Being a German design, would she have had a turtleback? How thick? How many decks? How high would her citadel have sat? How far did the armor belt extend? How thick was her upper belt?

Any information anyone can find will be useful, as long as it has a verifiable source linked in the post. I'm not sure how much information exists, but anything helps.

Thank you for your help!

https://stefsap.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/the-drawingboard-battleships-for-the-royal-netherlands-navy-iii/ This article by Anthony van Dijk is from Warship International, N°4, 1989

If you don't already have them, the profile images should help you, though I can't see the armor figures.  

The only numbers that seem to be consistent is 180mm armor for the casemates and 40mm longitudinal torpedo bulkheads 4.25m inboard.  

Image 6 makes it look like the belt doesn't extend all the way aft but it looks like it extends all the way to the bow in image 7.

I've got a long night ahead of me, so I'll keep looking for stuff.

The Dutch designers did not have the lessons of Jutland available when designing it, iirc, it had a pre-Jutland armor layout.  No source, sorry.  

derp.  misread as the later one
