What if HMS Hood la Richelieu (top), alternatively a more british option with bits taken from KGV

If I might be so bold...

In such an arrangement you might still see a spotting aircraft catapult aft of the last stack so the secondary turrets in that location probably should be moved  forward between teh two stacks and than another aft abreast of the after superstructure. The datapult and aircraft stroage arrangements could be kinda like Warspite.

This turret arrangement would also be lighter than that of the original Hood so it could probably be armoured more like a BB and not a BC plus there would likely be room/topmass to maybe mount a pair of heavy cruiser twin 8" turrets superfiring in the stern, moving the rear deck house forward and incorporating the main mast in it.

Just spitballin"...

Let me study your proposal. Do you mean turrets like those of HMS Belfast used as secundary artillery? ??? ::) 8) I like this idea.

What if HMS Hood equipped with huge 20 inch artillery? 3x2



EDIT: 2x2 may be a better idea :-\
