1.) Just because a ship has a standard displacement of XXXXX tons, does not mean that it is all steel. HINT - Look up the definition for standard displacement. Also along those lines, there are several types of steel that will be needed for construction of a warship. Heck, paint alone adds some 30 tons to a battleship, and the crew might be another 200-230 tons. The there are such things as drinking water, food(provisions), electrical cable, timber, ammunition, etc.
2.) This list does not mention the 12 "P" class Panzerschiffs of 23,000-24,000 tons.
3.) In your other iterations of the German Z-Plan there were to have been 4 carriers, you now only mention two
4.) Standard displacement of the 5 Hipper class heavy cruisers was around 14,000 tons. 10,000 tons was Nazi Germany's "official" line so that the cruisers would not appear to be grossly in violation of naval treaty limits.
Again, nebelwerferXXX, I strongly urge you to educate yourself in German naval matters before posting...
