We have discussed many variations of battleship to battleship actions but I don't think this has been a topic before (forgive me if it has).
Let us put German fast ships against those of the RN, Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Gniesnau (both re-gunned to 6 x 15" each) plus AGS, Scheer and Deutchland versus KG5, PoW, Howe,Anson, DoY and perhaps Renown or Repulse. If this seems a bit 'top heavy' on the RN side perhaps remove the battlecruiser and add a 8 x 8" heavy cruiser or two, although if we do maybe one KG5 might have its work cut out dealing with three ships with a combined firepower of 18 x 11" guns on the German pocket battleships.
Any thoughts on the winners?
