This is one of my favorite ships, the French heavy cruiser Algerie. She's in her final guise, as scuttled at Toulon. I've shipped two Loire 130 seaplanes, as on a photo from an earlier period. During an earlier refit she received a battery of 8 (4x2) AA guns on the quarterdeck. Since it's not clear if these guns were removed when the last refit took place, I've left them there. Her primitive radars are missing and so are the lifeboats, but seeing how little time I've got for myself nowadays, I don't want to wait till everything is 100% finished, it may not happen soon.
