So moving on from my failed ideas which this is probably going to be another one, I have searched on here for this kind of post and found nothing so I'm going to post it myself. I was looking into the Japanese fleet of World War 2 and found a rather neat looking design, part Yamato and part cruiser even so I would class it as a battle-cruiser so in game if it was added it would most likely have a battleship icon, I was thinking of the Design B-65 "Ishikari" for the premium shop because unlike most fake designs on the internet like a Yamato with 5 turrets and what not this one was actually considered by the IJN I think it would be really neat ship to have and I know I for one would pay any amount to get it and I think it could be the Japanese equivalent of say a Scharnhorst anyway without further stalling here are the specifications for the real design.

Type:

  Super Type A cruiser
Displacement:
  • Standard: 31,905 t (31,401 long tons)[1]
  • Full-load: 35,000 t (34,000 long tons)
Length:
Beam: 27.2 m (89 ft)[1]
Draft: 8.8 m (29 ft) (trial)[1]
Propulsion: Four sets of geared turbines and eight Kampon boilers would yield 170,000 metric horsepower (167,674 shaft horsepower); this would have been able to drive the ship at 33 kn (38 mph; 61 km/h)[2]
Endurance: 8,000 mi (13,000 km) at 18 kn (21 mph; 33 km/h)[1]
Armament:
Armor:
  • 210 mm (8.3 in) to 190 mm (7.5 in) barbettes 190 mm (7.5 in) side armor inclined 20 degrees
  • 125 mm (5 in) armored deck 180 mm (7.1 in) conning tower sides 125 mm (4.9 in) conning tower roof [3]

All in good time. We have the Royal Navy light cruisers now and a proliferation of Japanese destroyers next.
