Here is the latest design that I use in Jacksonville. I made it on Dec 7. I use it to represent any of the USA's 4-turret DNs from USS Nevada thru USS West Virginia. Also can be any of the UK's QE or Revenge DNs. 8-)

FOUR-LARGE-TURRET-class Dreadnoughts (603)
49ARMOR (= 33 AblativeArmor)
49HULL (I think of it as c24.5 Reinforced Hull from the Starmada Compendium)
Thrust=6, no Shields, no ECM.
WEAPONS ARCS RANGE ATTACK DICE
4× Plasma Cannon (Acr/Dx3) [FX4][FX4][AX4][AX4] 6-12-18; 4 3 2 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0
12× Chain Guns (Acr/Dfs/Rpt) [TT] 1-2-3; 12 8 6 4 3 2 2 1 1 1 0 0
4× Mass Drivers (Acr/Cts/Tls) [CD] 5-10-15; 4 3 2 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0

This design has been very succesful in games I play in Jacksonville and down is South Florida.
In both places , we allow only 2 WTs per weapon, with Acr allowed & not counting as on of the two.

:arrow: Also, for the games I am playing in South Florida, I make this change/addition:
I add Fire Control to all of my ships, becuse my nephew and dad like to put ECM1 on their ships.

Here is the latest design that I use in Jacksonville. I made it on Feb 7.
I use it to represent any of the USA's 4-turret BBs from USS Nevada thru USS West Virginia. Also can be any of the UK's QE or Revenge BBs.
Four-Large-Turret Battleships, CR=529
Thrust=5, no Shields, no ECM
34 Armor + 37 Hull
WEAPONS ARCS RANGE ATTACK DICE -4 -6 -8
8× Plasma Cannon (Acr/Dx2) [FX4][FX4][AX4][AX4] 6-12-18 ---------8 6 4 3 2 1 1 1 1 0 0 0
10× Chain Guns (Acr/Dfs/Rpt) [TT] 1-2-3 -------10 7 5 4 3 2 1 1 1 0 0 0
4× Turbo Lasers (Acr/Rpt) [PS] 5-10-15 ---------4 3 2 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0
2× Mass Drivers (Acr/Cts/Sct) [CD2][CD2] 5-10-15 ---------2 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

By making them a little smaller with a lower CR, I can play more of these. So far they are working. 8-)
Cheers

Here are the Four Turret DNs as I refined them in June. They are working
They can be any of the USA BBs from the Arizona class thru the Colorado class, the British Q.E. & Revenge classes, the Japanese Nagatos and even the WW1 German Bayren class. Gives me a lot of minis to use...

10 August 2013 FOUR-TURRET-DNs CR=505
Hull=40
Armor=40
Thrust=6
Shields=0
ECM=0
They have Fragile Systems, Hyperdrive, Overthrusters, and 11 Probes.

1× Mass Driver (Acr/Cts/Dx2) [CD] 5-10-15; 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

These ships do not always win, but they do well. Any thoughts from anyone? Always open to comments, critisms, etc.

Um...unless I'm mistaken, there's no thrust rating listed...

Here is the newest version of my Arizona Class DNs, as of 27July2014:
SNS Arizona CRAT=800
Hull=58, Armor=58, Thrust=7, (no shields or ECM). Fragile Hull, Overthrusters, Hyperdrive, 15 Probes.
3x Plasma Guns (Acr/Dx2) FX0 6-12-18, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
3x Plasma Guns (Acr/Dx2) FX0 6-12-18, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
3x Plasma Guns (Acr/Dx2) AX0 6-12-18, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
3x Plasma Guns (Acr/Dx2) AX0 6-12-18, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
12x Chain Guns (Acr/Dfs) TT2 TT2 1-2-3, 12 8 6 4 3 2 1
3x Mass Drivers (Acr/Dx3) CD0 5-10-15, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
3x Mass Drivers (Acr/Dx3) CD0 5-10-15, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0
3x Mass Drivers (Acr/Dx3) CD0 5-10-15, 3 2 1 1 1 0 0

Each triple 14"/45 MG Turret is represented by three Dx2 Plasma guns.
The CD Massdrivers correspond to the hull mounted torpedoes originally installed and give more firepower to the design in the SNE universe.
The Chain Guns correspond to the 5"/51 & 5"/25 guns providing short-range firepower and AA fire against fighters, drones, and seekers.

Cheers & Greetings from Jacksonville.
