4th addition towards the Fuso class.
On the same hull as the A-49 proposal, on 173,7meters, the designers changed the turrets placements to a more regular all centreline positions with superfiring positions forward and aft and the 5th turret just aft of the second funnel. Armament did not changed (36cm/14inch) but displacement reduced by 100 tons to 27,000tons standard.
We can see now the clear lines toward the Fuso class but this could also be considered a small scale Tosa, Kii or Amagi class, and probably this design led to those 5 turreted ship classes.
Overview of this design:
Engine Power: 43.300shp
Maximum Speed: 43km/h (23knots)
Armour Thickness: 305mm Belt, 29mm Deck
2x1 76mm Guns,
