History

Constellation was laid down as a Lexington-class battlecruiser in the early 1920s. The project was quite ambiguous—on one hand she had high speed and powerful armament, on the other hand, her armor was mediocre at best for this ship type. But Constellation could well have become one of the largest ships of her time. A total of six ships of this class were planned for construction. However, the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 forced the Americans to revise their plans.

The lead ship of the series and Saratoga were converted into aircraft carriers, while the construction of the remaining battlecruisers was canceled. While Lexington inherited cumbersome 203 mm artillery from the battlecruiser project, VIII Constellation has been recreated in World of Warships as a battleship with torpedo launchers and the Surveillance Radar consumable, both of which are completely unconventional features for this ship type.

Modeling the Ship

Main battery: eight 406 mm/45 Mk.5 guns in four turrets.

Dual-purpose battery: twenty 127 mm/38 Mk.12 guns in Mk.32 mounts.

Anti-aircraft artillery: thirty-two 20 mm Oerlikon autocannons in Mk.24 mounts and 30 more in Mk.4 mounts; forty-eight 40 mm Bofors anti-aircraft cannons in Mk.2 mounts.
