Well, the Rock doctor suggested i should post the design in case anybody were interested.

Feedback both on the design and the image would be great!

She is immune to 20cm guns at most expected combat ranges (something like at least 14km-22km), and her 84k kW engines give her a speed equal to most cruiser, and still fast enough to avoid almost all battleships.

LOL, folks, go build them. it's gonna come out of your capital ship tonnage, remember?

Doesn't, it seems, apply to the Australians, and Germany's building them to get back into the capital ship game. Besides, 2 of them use up only enough tonnage for 1 heavy ship, leaving me tonnage for 4 full size BBs and the hull allocations to allow me to do so.

Only 11 years after she was commissioned in the case of

The Armored Cruiser Capitan Tylor is a Spithead, but she's only got 8 inch guns. 16 of them, but only 8 inch. Her speed is somewhat lacking and her armor is slightly less than the Oyama, but she's be nasty in a fight with some of these. Oyama is the correction of the errors of the Tylor.

And Chile need no worry about treaty tonnage.

I see your El Cid and raise you two Vengeance class BC's.

Vedergällning: I like her, I'm sure someday I'll grow to love her tower though :-P

Only 90 main shells?

Hm, yes it is on the low side, maybe should look into some tweaking of the armour scheme.

But i dont know if anybody noticed that the torpedo bulkhead also covers the full height of the main belt, and meets the armoured deck at the top of the main belt. This means tat a shell that penetrates the belt still have to get trough the 4cm bulkhead.

Hrolf Hakonson : Yes she is sacry similar to your Blücher, but what can i say, great minds think alike?

Quite a nice design and similar my own above. More speed, less armour. Just depends on what your priorities are.

Korpen, I think the main problems with your design lie in the detail. Need separate boiler/turbine rooms for better torpedo protection > two funnels. Deckspace seems to be a bit of an issue when light guns are added. I went for a similar method in making the Atpbh taller to act as a splinter plate.

Very nice ship, more dangerous to capital ships, less dangerous to a cruisers then mine.

The reason i like ships in this size is just this fact that the different design priorities is so distinct.

I think i am willing to take the penalty of using only one funnel, i prefer the look of single funnelled ships.

But i don't think deckspace is much of a problem of the ship, i felt there are plenty of open spaces on her,

but i have made some modifications on the layout and placement of the 40mm guns (image below).

Also made her 1m thinner, (with the resulting loss of survivability) as that allowed me to increase the deck to 75mm and add 10 shells per gun.

Added platforms on the hangar and funnel as well, mainly for putting 20mm guns on (20mm guns not drawn).

The only dead angle for the AA is from low astern, so maybe i should move a pair of 40mm from the funnel position to the transom to cover it?

20,682 lbs / 9,381 Kg = 41.4 x 10.0 " / 254 mm shells or 2.2 torpedoes

Stability (Unstable if below 1.00): 1.16

Metacentric height 3.6 ft / 1.1 m

Roll period: 14.8 seconds

Steadiness - As gun platform (Average = 50 %): 52 %

- Recoil effect (Restricted arc if above 1.00): 0.76

Seaboat quality (Average = 1.00): 1.21

Hull form characteristics:

Hull has a flush deck

and transom stern

Block coefficient: 0.490

Length to Beam Ratio: 10.00 : 1

'Natural speed' for length: 29.57 kts

Power going to wave formation at top speed: 51 %

Trim (Max stability = 0, Max steadiness = 100): 43

Bow angle (Positive = bow angles forward): 0.00 degrees

Stern overhang: 0.00 ft / 0.00 m

Freeboard (% = measuring location as a percentage of overall length):

- Stem: 29.00 ft / 8.84 m

- Forecastle (20 %): 20.00 ft / 6.10 m

- Mid (50 %): 20.00 ft / 6.10 m

- Quarterdeck (15 %): 19.00 ft / 5.79 m

- Stern: 19.00 ft / 5.79 m

- Average freeboard: 20.40 ft / 6.22 m

Ship space, strength and comments:

Space - Hull below water (magazines/engines, low = better): 84.1 %

- Above water (accommodation/working, high = better): 154.9 %

Waterplane Area: 30,816 Square feet or 2,863 Square metres

Displacement factor (Displacement / loading): 113 %

Structure weight / hull surface area: 133 lbs/sq ft or 649 Kg/sq metre

Hull strength (Relative):

- Cross-sectional: 0.96

- Longitudinal: 1.35

- Overall: 1.00

Hull space for machinery, storage, compartmentation is adequate

Room for accommodation and workspaces is excellent

Good seaboat, rides out heavy weather easily
