There's an additional tower in the back of the main superstructure. Maybe, radar or hydro?

looks more like a upgraded FCS

Best scene in the entire 3rd season of TMITHC. I'm hoping to see it action at least in the next season, now that hostilities are escalating between Imperial Japan and the Reich.

I've only seen season 1 but I just found a "source"...

I love this kind of "what if" series. I find it enthralling.

Best alt history story I read was aliens come to earth for recon in 15th century , see guys getting around on horse back, come back with invasion fleet.....problem for the aliens is it's now 1942 and they have not fought a war in over 1000yrs

Hate me but I care about the ships escorting the Hotel than the Hotel itself. Are they even cruisers? The ships seem to be as high above water as the Hotel and those guns look like 310 or bigger, not 203... I can be wrong about that, the perspective isn't clarifying anything. There are DDs in the scene and i want to know which class(es) they are. Look like AB-X and in this reality the IJN didn't build ANY DD which that turret arrangement. Japanese Gearings? AB-X Akizuki???

And seriously, the water in the last seconds looks too shallow for a Hotel to anchor in.

I am pretty interested in her escorts too.

The cruisers look like Mogami or Ibuki classes with the seaplane catapults replaced by a helipad. The CV seems to be a modified Taihou with what looks to be F-1 jets (I could be wrong, my plane knowledge isn't that good).

The DDs though, I have no either what they are either. I too thought they were Akizukis which swapped a gun turret for missiles or anti-submarine torpedoes but Akizukis only have one funnel, not two. I think you are right and it is probably a Gearing, which strikes me as a little odd since the show bothered to use Japanese ships for the CA and CV escorts but went American for the DDs.

Then again they probably don't expect the majority of the audience to notice. I mean they did use a Russian helicopter in that scene after all.

 

Edit:

Also the top-rated comment on that video. Does anime exist in that universe? Truly a question for the ages. :Smile_teethhappy:

Well, NASA incorporated German scientist to help them build rockets after the war.

In this alternate setting where Germany and Japan won the war, would they not do the same?

Possibility anyway I guess.

In a story, the facts and reality are entirely up to the story teller.

Aside from continuing their spaghetti making habits, what does happen to the Italians in this reversal of WW2 scenario?... I'm curious.

Or aren't they included, due to a shortage of Italaboos?

Could be some spoilers as its an ongoing series but according to Phillip K Dick canon... they still exist as a very minor power.

I'm actually surprised the westerners are able to go ahead with this television series.. thought they were very sensitive with WWII German stuff and all.. Or it's because in the series the Reich n the Empire are still.The bad guys?

Watch it. Decide for yourself.

There could even be a "hmph, Nazi America... so what's so different?" subtext...

But like all good art and sci-fi, it's the watcher who is free to understand what they understand from it when watching it.

I've only seen season 1 but am going to catch up soon.

One of the lead actors is the woman who plays Kyra (Riddick's warrior girl comrade) in The Chronicles of Riddick (and who was also electro-thief-girl in "Angel")

A reason to watch 😛
