Battleship Sovetsky Soyuz

The Sovetsky Soyuz class battleships (Project 23) were a class of battleships begun by the Soviet Union in the late 1930s but never brought into service. They were designed in response to the battleships being built by Germany. Only four hulls of the sixteen originally planned had been laid down by 1940, when the decision was made to cut the program to only three ships to divert resources to an expanded army rearmament program.

These ships would have rivaled the Imperial Japanese Yamato class in size. They would have been superior to their German rivals, the Bismarck class, at least on paper.

 

The MOC features rotating main turrets and elevation; a small radar will be added later. The MOC is divided in three parts. Hope you like it!
