Submarine Battleship. in a certain way it could be like a 'BIG' Surcouf https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_submarine_Surcouf

First approach to Submarine Aircraft Carrier and Battleship. These are based on 2 bottom KGV hulls (remain of waterline cutting) glued together.

Alternative main artillery for Bismarck.

Insert: What I considered turrets could look with all big guns german designers considered during WWII, they also considered 2 gun turrets only.

In this line, I envisaged posibilities to intall them on a Bismarck hull. 15 inch is included for comparison purposes.

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

Interesting profiles.   What would be two medium looking turrets to stern of la Richelieu style ?

Suggestion:  How about a 80s-ish modernization like on Iowa class ?

Nice work!

Been planning a build like that for several years, a Nelson with to quad 14" from a KGV forward and either 6" or 4.5" secondaries.  Superstructure would be moved forward to provide space for significantly enlarged machinery, rear facing hangar and stern mounted catapult.  The idea is a mid 30s battlecruiser to counter the Deutschlands.
