RN Brindisi is a hypothetical further development of the heavy cruiser project for the Spanish Navy, combining the features of Anteproyecto preliminar VIII-203 (four 203 mm mounts) and Anteproyecto preliminar XII-152 (four triple artillery mounts).

She is recognizable as the tier IX Italian cruiser for Italy in World of Warships.


Italian/Spanish heavy cruiser programs:

The Genova-class was a class of Italian Heavy Cruiser, compromising 2 ships, the Regina Marina Genova, and the Spanish Galicia.



While originally commissioned by Spain in 1927 to revitalize its ageing pre-dreadnought fleet, the resulting design was eventually ordered by Italy as well as a one-off heavy cruiser that would later inspire the Udine-class.



During the late 1930s, the Spanish Navy was pursuing another class of Heavy cruiser to succeed the American armed Triunfo-class Heavy Cruiser.



Since allied support of Spain all but vanished after Franco's victory over Monarchist Spain, Franco was left to the other european fascists powers to attempt to build a new warship.



Italy's Ansaldo shipyard stepped up to the plate, as Germany was in the middle of a boom of naval warship construction. The resulting project would be nicknamed the "Barcelona Project".



The resulting design was under 3000 tonnes lighter then the Triunfo-class, but carried much larger armament of 9x- 9.4in guns.


Her armoring scheme thicker than the preceding Italian Zara-class heavy cruiser, except for a belt thickness of 150mm of the same thickness of the Zara-class.

Built in 1.12.2 using slightly modified Hans Pack. Textures are pretty much the same in vanilla with the exception of netherbrick and acacia wood.

You are free to use any of my designs but please give credit (ie, putting a sign saying "built by SCJackson" next to the build). If you wish to use a design as part of a published project please contact me via PMC for permission.

There usually isnt any rhyme or reason to which ships i build, i build whatever looks interesting to me at the time. If a ship happens to be in world of warships or is, like this ship, a wows fictional ship, i will make a point of it being in the game. Basically the answer to you question is maybe. Also i can never get past the turrets on french BBs, but the rest of the ship tends to look nice

k, thanks for your reply, I think Alsace looks pretty good, mainly due to her massive armament, but I'm fine with a "maybe" :)
