Looking for info: German light cruiser concept Schichau Werft

Post by Baltasar » 08 Dec 2020 05:43

Came across a picture of a 5x3 gun 5,9" German light cruiser concept, allegedly designed by Schichau Werft, Danzig. Might've been a enlarged Nuernberg concept. Obviously, it never progressed past the design stage, but I wonder if anybody would have more information on this?

Hoax ship
far to small to carry the armament

Again, apparently this was a design project. I don't even know if the drawing was even vaguely what they drew up.

Schichau didnt projected any cruisers for the RM/KM.
it was task of the K-Amt in connection with A and MWA.

Baltasar,

this is not real design.
You can find mentions of this ships on those sites:
https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/ ... -1700-kit/
https://www.forum-marinearchiv.de/smf/i ... 43.0;nowap
I am not aware of any model of cruiser BERLIN produced by HP Models.
Furthermore Schichau Werft, Danzig was not working for Kriegsmarine before 1939. So this could be only WWII design which is very unlikely.

Hope that helps!

yeah, even the "light cruiser" version built off of Admiral Hipper-class projected 4x3 5.9" guns, which actually doesn't sound too bad?
