Seriously, they're not building them any smaller or faster, not following the standard Light Cruiser template everybody else is using.

The Italians also have four battleships.
... I kinda pity the Austria-Hungarians right now. They're gearing up to fight their next-door neighbor, as would be logical, then get suckerpunched with Suddenly, Reconquista.
