Tylor would be an interesting match for the 14x7,48" Ulic Ali Reis, allthough I must admit I haven't really done a compairison between the two. Ulic Ali Reis has 2 less guns per broadside and overall, i'm not even sure which ship has the better armor but I suspect Tylor being the newer ship would have an advantage there as well.

Then again having a 7,000 ton advantage will get you that...

Rain of pain versus knock out blows.

Concentrating fire power in a single unit versus two smaller ship carrying 8 guns each

I think of a warships of this size as a way to bring guns to the enemy.

This ship is usefull fighting of smaller ship (DD and CL)

also in short renge night battles this ship has its advanteges.

Over its 8'' conterpart.

The war sessons say 10000t cruiser were equal.

So basicly I dont know what to think.

Lots of guns, probably topweight problems like the other USN cruisers.

For a larger cruiser, one of the 13000ton types its likely to stay at 150-200hm where the 203mm weapon will hit more often and heavier and the larger cruiser is at no risk of being sunk by gunfire.

Pisa vs Export:

Armament weight: 223 tons - 227 tons

Armament Armor weight: 194 tons - 592 tons

Total armament weights: 417 tons - 819 tons

Could someone compare the weights of a single Italian quad turret to a single German triple? (that's armament + armor)
