we all have our favourites. for me it is the Mackensen. laided down in 1915 but not completed. German WWI BC are the best. at least that is how I feel

Mind you HMS Nelson was the first model ship I ever built so have a soft spot for her too.

At Jutland the German BC and LC hit their targets 3 times more often than the British, who were at that time considered the best navy in the world.  The Germans sunk more ships and tonnage but due to only having 1/3 to 1/2 the numbers of the British were too afraid to risk a second engagement.

 

In WW1 &2 the German rangefinding technology was peerless, until the US Radar systems in 43 eclipsed previous technologies.

 

Ton for ton German ships are widely acknowledged to be the best ships in WW1 & 2.

 

However, just like the Yamoto, even the most famous (read Bismarck) had design flaws, especially at the level of skirting protection above wave height.

I like the sound of the tier 9 'A140-J2' I have always been fond of HMS Nelson and she is set up along the same lines.

Ok I'm ready to start CBT now :child:

 

Yep but I'd rather see the British ships.
