Hmm. Well I see your point then. I will revise this to swap out the 5.9s for more 4-inchers.

Dropping the 5.9 turrets for the less-heavy 4inchers also frees up some weight savings for additional 40mm Bofors too.

It also means that the ship is less of a between-two-stools sort of thing. She's basically an oversized destroyer, anyways...

Terminus, do you happen to have art work for the CLAA version?

Not on hand, but I can probably rustle something up fairly quickly.

It sometimes amazes me how many weapons could be squeezed onto ships back then. This is the van Hemskeerck, just after the war. It's a small ship!

BTW, with the upgrade scheme proposed by "FDRLincoln" above, the van Hemskeerck side that already comes with the game is completely appropriate. The Celebes is meant to be of the same class, after all.

Yeah, I see the Celebes as originally built as a half-sister to Tromp and van Hemskeerck, so the same illustration should work post-AA refit.
