  1. The Dutch Battlecruisers (3 planned) made it never past the drawing table. Concrete plans were only made by late 1939 and the official go-ahead was not given before the outbreak of the war in the Netherlands (may 1940). So stating ''illustrate the most important classes of warships that were in service with the navies'' is wrong on this account for the RNN.

    1. Thank you for your comment Mark Vos! That's correct about the battlecruiser but this is the general introduction in this series of posts. In the caption however, I mention that the Project was never materialized.

  2. To supplement my earlier comment: Artists at Shipbucket have done some painstaking research to find out how the design would have looked like in 1939 and 1940. You can find them on the SB website: http://www.shipbucket.com/drawings?category=neverbuilt&country=12&shipType=18
