In 1915 Fischer ordered the construction of three "large light cruisers" or Light Battlecruisers if you prefer. Courageous & Glorious were completed with two twin 15" turrets. Furious completed with two single 18" turrets, but then soon after lost her fore turret, but gained a flying off platform, before later being converted into an aircraft carrier. All three ended up as WW2 carriers.
The three ships are noticeably absent in the FAI ships logs, which is a shame as Courageous & Glorious with Repulse took part in the 2nd battle of Heligoland Bight, 17th Novenber 1917.
How should the ships logs of these Light Battlecruisers be designed?
On tonnage values according to the hull box pdf :-
- are they 6 hull box BD with (BB) turrets
- or 9 hull box CL with (BB) turrets?
Their hull armour is weak, but they are large Dreadnought era ships.
