1/350 H-tier Battleship 05371

The DKM H-class was a class of battleships that was planned by the German Navy, or Kriegsmarine, during World War II. The class was intended to be the next generation of battleships for the Kriegsmarine and was intended to be more heavily armed and more heavily armored than previous classes. However, the class was never completed due to the changing circumstances of the war and the increasing Allied naval dominance.

The H-class battleships were intended to be armed with eight 15-inch (380 mm) guns and several smaller guns, and they were designed to be able to reach a top speed of around 30 knots (35 mph). They were also intended to have a heavily armored belt and deck to protect against enemy fire.

The H-class battleships were never completed, and no ships of this class were ever built or commissioned. The Kriegsmarine focused on other types of ships, including cruisers, destroyers, and submarines, as the war progressed and resources became scarce. As a result, the H-class battleships remain a theoretical concept rather than an actual class of ships.
