1:700 French 'Gille' Battle Cruiser Design (1913)


This class of ships never received names, but is known by its designer, M. Gille. In 1913, the 'Gille' type was one of two proposed battle cruiser designs for the French Navy, and would have mounted three quadruple 13" gun turrets. They were intended as battle cruiser companions to the Lyon and Normandie class battle ships, which would have had the same armament. No details other than general profile and characteristics (shown in the sketch above) were finalized, and the ships were never ordered or laid down due to World War 1.
