The concept of the super battleship battle is quite nice for a special game play,  and it open to ship that would be a nightmare to balance. Thus, yes, the Super Yamato and the Hanover offer a nice option for the German. But one easy pick for such game mode is missing, even if we have a tech tree line around it's concept.


Tillman IV.


Yes they are somewhat lighter (80 000 tons). Yes they are slow (albeit a refit version could be around 26-27 knt). Yes they are older design (tho a refit version would have better AA than probably the Hanover and the Satsuma). But, with 15 18'' guns she would have a punch that would be great to see. And if Wargaming are crazy enough to pull it out, the 4x6 16''/50 version would be an orgasm to shoot with, even if the reload would be longer my coffee machine.


So please, bring one of these monstrosity for the US Super Battleship.

There was also an American 1934 "Maximum Battleship" study (unrelated to the Tillman designs) resulting in two designs with a main battery of eight 20" guns. An updated early 1940s revision of that could easily provide a third super-battleship to the lineup.

Of course none of these super-battleships are very super when they burn like gasoline soaked cardboard.
