Lol yeah that is one of my favorite things about my Yoshi.

But you have to remember calling then Cruisers is sort of a mistake as the term Large Cruiser or Super Cruiser was reworded method of reviving the idea of building and using Battlecruisers. So if you think of them in terms of Battlecruisers their gun range seems more reasonable as BCs were meant to compare favorably to a BB, but not quite as heavy or powerful as one. Although BCs could often be faster  than BBs. 12 inch caliber guns of these ships are BB caliber guns after all.

Very true, and also goes to show just how crazy the “Large Cruiser” proposals were. In order to be granted funding they had to be labeled as such in the time they were being designed and built as the general population knew that BCs had been phased out in the past. So getting funding for new and improved versions to meet requirements at the time was a little tricky.

But you have to wonder what the people who denied funding for new Battlecruisers, but were willing to instead grant funding for “Super Cruisers” would have thought if they went to see these ships. I mean you would think they would have but two and two together and realized these were Battlecruisers? But then again they did not have the internet back then, so unless they had access to a lot of info for what ever reason then maybe they would not have realized that the New Super Cruisers were in fact Battlecruisers... :cap_yes:

Super Cruisers was just a label they made up to get funding to build new Battlecruisers when Battlecruisers were seen as obsolete and no funding would be granted for BCs. Funny how just calling something a new name can trick people so easily lol.

:cap_cool:As I understand it Battle Cruisers came out a lot earlier,And the later versions we see in game now  IE  Alaska,Azuma,Yoshino,Agir,Siegfried  and truth be known Jean Bart are WG/Leska padding the margin with paper ships

And let’s not forget Stalingrad Class, which were actually built and served in Cold War.

Alaska and Guam were the only ships of this type to enter service. None of the Stalingrads were completed.

The Alaskas were quickly mothballed but I think it took the death of Stalin to end the Stalingrads.

That's because Stalin thought it was a great idea, and everyone else around him thought it was a bad idea.
