Soviet Battleship Navarino (Pic Heavy)

In response to Dans great comp idea, I've spent the afternoon in my Frankenstein lab making up a fantasy battleship!

Based on the hull of SS, this is a hybrid Seaplane/Battleship in a similar vein to ISe/Hyuga. It retains two of SS main guns and most of its secondaries. The rear of the ship features a platform and catapults for launching seaplanes. The superstructure has been heavily modified and augmented with parts from lots of different ships. The paint scheme is entirely fictional, as is the ship!

I've named the ship Navarino for the battle of Navarino in 1827, in which a combined Russian, French & British fleet destroyed a combined Ottoman/Egyptian fleet.

Enjoy!

Excellent conversion and paint. I also enjoyed the background.

Coooooal!!! Shocked  Shocked  Shocked

How good is that??? Thats awesome Monty, I dont even know where to start on mine. I know I plan to call it either HMS St George or HMS Victory and plan to use the SS as a base hull to build her up from, but other than that I'm pretty lost with it.

That looks awesome though Monty way to be the first and wow are you fast. Shocked

Just as a matter of curiosity and just for fun what would her stat lines look like?

Hmm good point Dan, I don't know much about the stat side of things, in fact I'm pretty useless at it, I'll make it up as:

2 3 406-millimeter (16.0 in) B-37 guns
4 2 152-millimeter (6.0 in) B-38 guns
6 2 100-millimeter (3.9 in) B-34 DP guns
10 4 37-millimeter (1.5 in) 61-K AA guns

I'll say it carries between 10 -12 seaplanes in the space created at the back of the ship when the armament was removed!! Smile

No idea how feasible this would have been in real life, but hey it's fantasy right? Very Happy Very Happy
