The Austro-Hungarian navy over a two year period between December 1915 & December 1917 came up with 11 preliminary design study types (2 x battleship and 9 x battlecruiser). Listed below are these designs and the statistical information for each. The design study type data below was compiled by Erwin Sieche, a renowned Austo-Hungarian naval historian.

These ship designs will be redrawn in AutoCAD and simple 3D models will also be created. By doing so this will convey to you a better sense of what these ships could have been like. This is a future project currently slated for the year 2010.
