Quote from: sequoiaranger on February 18, 2010, 08:38:43 AMI looked through 20 pages of this topic and could not find this one, so I am starting it.In the 30's there were many "extra heavy cruisers" in the 13-17,000 ton range being thought of, developed, and even built (the Des Moines class comes to mind, as well as the "Deutschlands"). Of course "Admiral U. Furashita" has thought of some, and has some on his website:http://www.combinedfleet.com/furashita/furamain.htmbut surely you can think of others.*FLASH* I actually TOUCHED the Admiral Graf Spee in Montivideo! The mast-top rangefinder (and anchor) of the Graf Spee are on display in a memorial park on the waterfront. I was looking around from my stateroom with binoculars when I spotted a VERY FAMILIAR shape---one of which I had put a one-inch-long facsimile on a plastic model. WOW!
