1:700 USS South Dakota BB-49


These 'super-dreadnoughts' were the last of their type to be designed for the US Navy. They would have mounted twelve 16" guns in four triple turrets. Though not much larger than the previous Maryland class (with which they shared a similar profile), these ships were more heavily armoured, and their speed was about the same as the previous classes. All six ships of this class fell victim to the 1921 Washington Treaty.
