P class Heavy Cruiser Version 1 by Tzoli P class Heavy Cruiser Version 1 by Tzoli
My idea for a successor of the Admiral Hiper class Heavy cruisers, based on the P class Big Gun Cruiser Hull.
3x3 20,3cm Gun Turrets and 7x2 10,5cm AA Guns

This idea is based on the real triple 20,3cm gun turrets designed by Krupp

An interesting detail is that they always keep the catapults on amidships, unlike the american heavy cruisers with them on the stern ^^

Well probably because where they intended to operate:
On the rough and stormy waters of the Northern Atlantic and not the calmer southern waters!

Hey, so this is the famous 8inch gunned P class...
You, know, being a corsair cruiser, i would have gone for two aft turrets and one fore, like the Konigsberg and Leipzig class light cruisers... but her speed and manoeuverability maybe allow this configuration to work as well :)

Dunno I like this 2-1 better than the 1-2

Maybe you're right... it would have looked just like a very fat Lepizig in 1-2 configuration...
