Coast Defense Ship Tonnage

You can't have more than 40,000 tons in coast defense ships, correct? Or is it the tonnage of the largest capital ship currently in your fleet?

40,000 tons is the figure, at least to my understanding.

You got any weird ideas for those 40,000 tons?

I've got a few ideas for reusing the turrets from the Arkansas and Wyoming.

Non-All or Nothing?

I see the number of American Battleships has increased though to the Texas....any reason why?

My initial calculations were based on normal tonnage, not standard, since some of my references did not list standard tonnage, only normal. When I simmed the designs in Springsharp they also came out slightly underweight than their historical counterparts. Those differences combined with my remaining tonnage allowed me to add back the Texas, with the New York becoming a training ship and the Arkansas a target ship. I thought it better to go with Springsharp's numbers for consistency.

Might want to keep some tonnage to spare, should one need to build an Iowa or something later.

Well, an Iowa would blow the doors off the treaty, so that's not a worry. Much will depend on the extent of any refits to my older battleships, which will be eligible for replacement in the early 1930's. If there is the political will to build new ships, then I'll probably scrap the older ones like the Texas and the Nevadas. If not, I've been playing around with some ideas for major refits, or rebuildings to be more exact. Something along the lines of what the Italians did...

should one need to build an Iowa or something later.

Those ships wouldn't come around until after the Treaty expires (31 Dec 1936) so that's no problemo.

That is, of course, assuming the Treaty lasts that long...
