Hello,



this is a what-if version of the Bulgarian Line's new flagship, MV Vasil Levski (II). Construction first started in 1938, and it was decided to name the ship not only after our national hero, but also after its predecessor, scrapped 1 year earlier. The new ship was nearly 328 meters long. That, plus its weight and tonnage would have made it the largest passenger ship ever built. It was going to use diesel propulsion, which would have made it relatively fast at 28 knots, not as fast as the contemporary Queen Mary and Normandie, but not slow either. The ship's interiors were to be reminiscent of the abovementioned ships, but a lot less unconventional, and more comfortable for passengers.



Had the ship been finished by schedule in 1942, it would have looked like this. However, WWII started, it was launched in mid-1940, but all work cancelled following the German invasion of the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941. Bulgaria left the war (1944) as a country in the Communist bloc. The Soviet Union needed steel, and the ship was broken up in 1949.
