Just for fun thought.

KM BB's and CC's are mostly mounted in twin turrets. With the addition of Pommern, I think it is possible to create a small sub branch where KM BB have triple gun turrets, but are smaller in caliber.
Not to mention a possible improved or worse sigma. Some veteran players can remember the 419 mm and 457 mm Conqueror. Where the 419 mm has better grouping than 457 mm.

Anyways lets dive down to the idea.

 

BB Main Branch (Twins)
T3 Nassau (Twin 280 mm)
T4 Kaiser (Twin 305 mm)
T5 Koinig (Twin 305 mm)
T6 Bayern (Twin 380 mm)
T7 L22c (Twin 380 mm)
T8 Bismarck (Twin 380 mm)
T9 FDG (Twin 406 / 420 mm)
T10 GK (Twin 450 mm)

Note: Upgrading GK's triple 406 / 420 mm to twin 450 mm. (Eventhough Germany did not develop 450 mm. But have plans for 480 mm and 508 mm.)
           And since I don't know where WG found the French 431 mm. But the French was actually building a 450 mm. Resolved.
           And WG made so many paper / imaginary ships, that the word "historical" is now thrown out the window for the sake of the game.
           And WG also broke the barrier. Saying that there will be no guns bigger than 460 mm. Now we have Shikishima. Soooo......

 

BB Sub Branch (Triples)
T6 Bayern (Triple 280 mm / 305 mm)
T7 L22c (Triple 280 mm / 305 mm)
T8 Bismarck (Triple 350 mm)
T9 FGD (Triple 380 mm) [aka Pommern]
T10 GK (Triple 406 mm/ 420 mm)

Note: T6 and T7 is optional. WG may or may not implement them, but the idea is there.

 

CC Split Brnch (Twins)
T5 Derfflinger (Twin 305 mm)
T6 Mackensen (Twin 350 mm)
T7 Ersatz Yorck (Twin 380 mm)
T8 Gneisenau (Twin 380 mm)
T9 Super Odin or H40A (Twin 406 / 420 mm)
T10 ???? (Twin 450 mm)

Note: German battlecruisers sacrifice armament instead of armor to gain speed. Opposite of RN approach.

 

CC Sub Branch (Triples)
T8 Super Scharnhorst (Triple 350 mm)
T9 Super Odin II or H40A II (Triple 380 mm)
T10 ???? II (Triple 406 / 420 mm)

Note: German battlecruisers sacrifice armament instead of armor to gain speed. Opposite of RN approach.

 

Notice the trend. Large Caliber are mounted in twins. Smaller caliber are mounted in triples.
Also, keep in mind that German ships do 1/4 HE penetration damage. A passive IFHE gimmick for the KM ships.

 

What do you guys think? Should WG replauce GK's triple guns to twin 450 mm? Or should there be just 2 branches with BB and CC and all the other ideas be a money grab premium ship?
This is just a thought / idea.
If many will like the idea, I will update the KM tech tree suggestion. Same with RN tech tree suggestion.

WG always grounded their design on "real" project. but took too much creative liberties on actual "Stats"
