I've been working on an alternate timeline where Germany and the Central Powers win the First World War in 1920 following no American Intervention. Germany becomes the premier world power with Mittelafrika and a vast Asian empire coming under Germany's sphere of influence. Meanwhile, most of Central Europe is a German puppet, or in the reich. ITTL, the High Seas Fleet plays a much greater role in the victory using it's capital ships. This results in increased interest in the navy postwar and while less funding than the army, it has more funds than pre-war. France, Britain and Italy all go through major civil wars with some sort of revanchist regimes taking power in all 3. Canada fights to reclaim Britain and France fights on from Algeria. Germany is then the premier world naval power with no restrictions on it's forces. Austria Hungary collapses in the mid 20s with German Austria becoming part of the Reich while Galicia, Lodomeria, and Bohemia become puppets. Hungary and Bulgaria remain close to Germany, while Romania, Yugoslavia (Serbia) and Greece are all aligned with France. The Ottoman Empire is still limping along, but the situation improves after the discovery of oil rich regions reinvigorates the empire. So, what would a Kaiserliche Marine look like heading into a Second Weltkrieg? Which begins around 1940. Here was my plan, feel free to discus and offer suggestions. Battleships: -4 Konig Class used for colonial duties. Saw limited modernization, like increased AA capabilities and conversion to oil firing. -3 Tegetthoff Class in reserve. Very limited modernization, mostly just light AA additions. -4 Bayern Class modernized with improved engines and AA form the basis of Germany's Med Fleet, based in Trieste/Fiume/Pola. -2 Derfflinger Class modernized and based in Singapore against Japan. Im thinking these would be used as cruiser killers as they'd be oil fired and their speed increased to 30 kts. Heavy AA and redone secondary battery as well. A fairly heavy rebuild with these features was carried out in the late 20s. -4 Mackensen Class heavily modernized and form the basis of the fleets striking power. I'm thinking increased speed, heavier deck armor, a redone or improved secondary battery and more powerful engines. Of course a heavy AA addition as well. These after their refits sometime in the early-mid 30s be reclassified as fast battleships. -3 Yorck Class, essentially the modernizations done to the Mackensens. These ships would form the backbone of the fleet. These would be modernized sometime during the mid 30s. -1 Ostreich Class; the last class of battleships under construction for Austria-Hungary, Ostreich was ready for launch at Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino when Austria was annexed into Germany. What this design would be like is what I need to know. It would've been laid down sometime in the mid 20s, probably around 1925-26. Maybe an improved Ersatz Monarch? Discuss pls. -3 Luxembourg Class; 3 battleships built in Germany and the only new capital ships built entirely in Germany before the Second Weltkrieg. They would be laid down in the late 20s and be completed by the early 30s. I need some helps with possible designs. Maybe a Bismarck-esque ship with a more rational armor layout?
