Preliminary comments: Sturmvogel 66 (talk) 04:39, 19 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Need conversions, lots of conversions, mostly in the text. Tonnages, displacements, speeds, etc.
  • Needs your usual notes about the meaning of SKL and caliber
  • What does MPL stand for?
  • What powered the turrets?
  • Might be good to link to the definitions of turret, deck armor, etc., but not necessary
  • One of your armor conversions has an error
  • cite please for the first naval battle lost since Plattsburgh. Superlatives almost always need a cite.
    • I added conversions and the note about SK L/. MPL stands for Mittel-Pivot-Lafette, which I've added in a note. Navweaps doesn't say what powered the turrets, but I'd assume they were electrically trained and elevated. Gun turret is linked in the armament section, and we don't yet have an article on deck armor/armored deck. Belt armor is linked, as is conning tower. Thanks for catching the decimal error in the armor conversions. There is also now a citation for the first defeat since Plattsburgh. Thanks for reviewing the article.
