Isn't a bit top heavy?

Let´s take a closer look....

Zoe says topheaviness might not be an issue but barbet size and diameter seems rather large, especially aft.

In the top view, compare the beam of the hull for the twin 14"/L45 guns to the beam for this ship with triple... what is it, triple 15"/L55s? Those are big long tubes, very widely-spaced barrels, and very wide barbettes there.

After further inspection the top down view doesn't match the side view.

My comment came from that.
