Heller Ships 1/400 Strasbourg French Battleship Kit
The Strasbourg was armed with two main quadruple 330 mm turrets with a range of over 41 km. Each turret weighed nearly 1500 tonnes. The secondary armament was comprised of 130 mm, 47 mm and 32 mm pieces. A Loire 130 seaplane could be catapulted from the vessel's quarterdeck that could house two seaplanes (folded) in a hangar, or even a fourth one on the roof of the hangar, in addition to the one in place on the catapult. She was the sister ship to the Dunkerque, also built in the Penhoët shipyard in 1935 and commissioned into active service in 1937. The external feature that distinguished the Strasbourg from the Dunkerque was a two-level gangway at the base of the tower.
