Technically not an alternate world, as it's a future history, but hopefully you'll find it interesting.
INSS Glorious Archer, first of it's class. Built for the express purpose of outgunning and outfighting anything in anyone else's arsenal, the Archer class received enourmous criticism for it's cost, nearly twice that of the previous class. With 6 twin and 4 tripple 700mm pulse ion plasma turrets for a total of 24 main guns, backed by 400 anti-ship missiles, it's secondary batery consists of 8 twin 155mm mounts (half retractable), 16 quad 54mm CIWS (some retractable) and 160 short range missiles. At almost 300m lengh, and with a displacement of close to 190k tons, it dwarfs all other INSS classes, even the carriers. Parliement has allready preassured the government to cancel the procurement of the class, specially after news of severe problems with the retractable mounts and two near catastrophic events with the missile autoloaders, so construction will stop after #12
Isn't that a bit overkill for highway patrol ?

"Mad Max" comes to mind...
