The next step
The next step in this design sequence is likely to be a somewhat larger ship with a "1921-style" bridge structure, a pole foremast, and flatter, wider turrets. We would attempt to obtain an even higher speed. The secondary armament would likely be the same, to keep the weight down. The target speed would be 40 knots. Oh, and the main armament would be 6-17in/45 guns firing 2,850 pound shot.
