I think this would be a unique addition to the game. 3x3 406mm guns at 32kts.

Plans for a N3 were drawn as well but armed with 3x3 457mm.

The G3 battlecruiser was actually the original design for the Nelson-class battleships.  However, the design was cut down in size after the ratification of the Washington naval treaty, giving us the Nelson-class we know of now.

Adding to this, the designers went back to the drawing board after the WNT, and the result was the O3 design, which became Nelson and Rodney. All that survived and got carried over from the G3 design were the guns and turrets.

G3 will most likely be the Tier 9 ship in the future UK Battlecruiser Line / Tree. That though is still most likely a year or 2 down the road still (here's hoping).
