You have learned something some people using Springsharp never understand. And that is unless
you are specifically building a design where, as with some RN cruisers, the belt thins and shallows
fore and aft of the machinery spaces, your main armor belt has to be the length between the fore face of A turret
and the aft face of Y turret.

I can't see having a heavy coastal AA ship. But I can see using it for high seas convoy protection. For coastal AA I think converting scout cruisers and old DD's would be better to use.
Just a couple of thoughts.

If you did the following with the Ibuki, could you improve (?) guns.
1. Thin the hull bulges armor from 105 to 38 mm. Thin the Torpedo bulkheads from 105 mm to 65 mm.
(IMO, way over designed.) (Even the USN Iowa's only had 60 mm)
2. Reduce the fore and aft deck armor from 76mm to 51 mm. And maybe (?) the upper belt from 127 mm to 51 mm?
(Yeah, 127 mm will probably make the sides cruiser gun immune. But . . Could the weight be more useful elsewhere?)
Now, if the above are done, any chance those dual 200 mm turrets can become triples? OR 12x10-inch guns?

ChrisPatSwapping the two forward turrets should allow you to slim the ship a bit and probably shorten her in proportion. The more I think about this USN idea the more I like it.
What do you mean swap? Put the two twin forward and the two triple amidships? Which USN idea you think about?
