What is it lately with ship design some look great but some are just woeful, must a competition going  at LESTA.

 First some of the Dutch designs for higher tier ships then that USN hybrid now Zieten.

The ship looks like it pinched stuff from The Dutch look forward tower structure.

Ship reminds me of the Monitor design warships short stubby with big guns.

Zieten's forward guns almost stick over the bow.

 

For augment sake lets surmise WG has followed PEF design and that the high Tier Battlecruisers are refurbished and late year refits of there original 1910 designs, German ships were long and sleek in later years, is WG trying to tell us German designers would have went from a late war refit of like this on PEF.

To this design, even Tier 9 and 10 are back to a sleek look.

Could this be just a troll by WG

Not everything needs to look "sleek" to be functional.

This is the same problem I have with C. Caracciolo. If you'll notice, the gun turrets are ABSOLUTELY MASSIVE in comparison to the rest of the ship for simply being twin 15in guns. they look off...

Honestly, I would’ve preferred a superstructure like the one Deutschland had but modernized… Not this Graf Spee-like tombstone superstructure monstrosity that isn’t even repeated in other ships in the same line.

And plus, does the ship look a bit too top heavy to anyone?

While the modernization is pretty horrid, the devs aren't completely at fault for the ships look

One of the Ships it is possibly based on (could be based on the other variant, but the only difference is the layout of the rear turret):

GK 4532's front turret is pretty far forward compared to the other designs
