Battlecruisers in World of Warships

Here in World of Warships were talking about late battlecruisers only a few were designed, fewer laid down and only two completed.  The Dutch designed and laid down the “Design 1047” never completed as the Germans overran the Netherlands in May 1940.  The Japanese also designs but they never made it past paper.  The US Navy built the only two of these late battlecruisers, the Alaska class, class name sake out first in the Alaska followed by the Guam.  The Hawaii was cancelled while under construction and 3 others were cancelled before they were laid down, Philippines, Puerto Rico and Samoa.
