Tirpitz ala Rodney by Tzoli Tirpitz ala Rodney by Tzoli
Or Bismarck ala Nelson
I rarely edit German ships so look as a precious gem of it :D

An idea how would this German piece of naval architecture look like if the Nelson would have the base of inspiration for it.

Mmm, what then counterbalance all this? I thought machines goes to the rear in such designs...
But realy - it seems to be a certain goal in designing a "treaty cut-down" version of Bismarck class?
More power and armour with lighter SK38's

Actually this have more firepower than the bismarck with 1 more barrel but 3 triple turret is surely weights less then 4 twin and their appropriate equipment (elevators, ammo storage etc) the counterbalance still can be achieved by moving the turbines a bit aft still a ship is not that simple as a plank

Just a notice, nothing serious...
I mean this is not a Nelson style turret layout with turret X pointing back. This was Fujimoto's design with 3 all-forward quadruple 510cm

I know but with this layout I could get the most space for the engines.

By the way I know about the Fujimoto Dream Battleship Proposal:

Though one of the Yamato Preliminary designs featured the same gun layout:

He basically said that arrangement if turret C is nonsense.
