But does anyone know if any 10" hulls were cast as originally described in July 1943? Or was the idea of a 10" hull dropped entirely and if so, when?
The_Chieftain: I have not seen anything indicating that a 10" hull was ever manufactured. I have a very faint memory, upon which I will not rely, that the 12" came as a result of a decision to increase armor over a previous design, but if that was 8" or 10" I cannot recall.
