  • Possibilty of UK getting a replacement PBB for the Dunkerque

With the release of the French Navy, the RN_Dunkerque as the British Royal Navy's premium Battleship has become redunant (same with the KM_Andrea and the USN_Sevestapol). Back when the orignal 4 nations UK, US, Germany and Japan were the only nations playable, the premium battleships for UK, US, and Germany were SDE way of having the French, Soviets and Italians playable in some form, but times have change with the release of those 3 new nations and then current UK, US and KM PBB are no longer necessary.

I think the UK needs a new PBB one that is a british design even if it was one that date just after ww1. Fortunally I found such a design it the G3 battlecruiser.

It would be armed with 9 16 inch guns in 3 tripple gun turrets, with 2 on the front and one curiosly place in the mid-ships.

That's one of the design studies before the Nelson/Rodney class.

You mean you want SDE to make three new ships? SDE? Making more ships?

Forget it.

well the is ship going to be almost as big as the Hood in other words the G3 battlecruiser would be a hard target to miss and that the rear turret would have a limited firing arc meaning it would have to fire broadside in order to fire all the turrets, and the guns would be special versions of the 16(x3) mark 1 N or D so it would have a relatively short range, so the G3 battlecruiser would have enough flaws to prevent it becoming a game breaker
