Our latest release for Global War is WAR PLAN Z - Hitler's plan to create a vast Germany navy that could challenge the British Fleet. In this expansion the German player has an option to commit to building the ships in one of three historically researched plans (1934, 1938 & 1939).
The O class
was a planned class
of three battlecruisers
for the Kriegsmarine
(German navy) before World War II
. Prompted by a perceived lack in ship numbers when compared with the British Royal Navy
, the O class' design was born with the suggestion of modifying the P-class cruiser
design with 380 mm (15 in) guns instead of 283 mm (11.1 in). The ships were incorporated into the 1939 Plan Z
; while an aircraft carrier
, H-class battleships
and smaller ships engaged convoy escorts, one or more O-class ships would attack the merchant ships.
The O class' design reflected their intended role; a heavy main armament
(six 380 mm guns in three dual turrets
) for possible encounters with escorting 203 mm (8.0 in)-armed heavy cruisers
, enough armor to defend against the same and nothing more, and a high top speed so that they could get away from slower but much better armored capital ships
