Duplication?[edit]

Inasmuch as there was only one ship built in this class, it's not surprising that most of the information in this article seems to duplicate information in the article about HMS Hood. Should the two be combined? --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 11:06, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

No, I'll be stripping out most of the design and construction stuff from the Hood article shortly.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 12:47, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Other way round surely? There were plans to build 4 ships, but only one got built. Hood diverted in design and building from the other three so she is unique ajnd should be treated as such. GraemeLeggett (talk) 14:06, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
No, the Hood article will focus on the differences between her and the rest of the Admirals, but there's no need to duplicate the basics that she shares with her unbuilt sisters. I expect that the construction section will get quite large with all the changes made then. Oh, and thanks for the catch on the torpedo size in the infobox.--Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 17:03, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
