This one came up in 2015, as you can see in the first entry of this thread:
https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,3326.msg26778.html#msg26778

It was a bit of fun from the Flight editors.
Slightly worrying that Ailes swallowed this hook, line and sinker.

Yes my dear Arjen,

so I suggest to transfer it to; Theoretical and Speculative Projects section

Does anybody have the physical dimensions of the Crecy engine, by chance?   They aren't in the Wikipedia article, I note.

From RR Heritage Book

BTW, it's the Crecy instead of the 5,037hp E.65.

Taking a break from the post-WWII period with a comic book...

Anon., Danger Zone, published as Commando Comics Nš. 1353, 1979

Germany

Drachen
'Coast Defence Vessel'
No other details provided in the text. However going by the illustration the armament is 2 x 4.1 inch guns (Fore & Aft), plus two lighter gun weapons (37mm & 88mm) forward of the aft 4.1 inch gun and no visible torpedo tubes. Hood has suggested that the armament is specifically 2 x 1 4.1 inch guns (Fore and aft), the 88mm gun superfires over the aft 4.1 inch gun with a twin 37mm mount ahead of the 88mm gun.
Note: In overall appearance the ship appears to have loosely been based on the Type 37 Torpedo Boats (In service from 1941.) with an extra 4.1 inch gun forward and no torpedo tubes.

Unnamed
Two S-Boats
Details as per the real ships.

Great Britain

Unnamed
Destroyer.

Plot summary: Two friends explorations along the German coast before WWII stand them in good stead during WWII.

Note: This comic book is in fact a WWII set version of Erskine Childers 'The Riddle of the Sands' (1903), which I have covered earlier in the thread, which hews very close to the original plotline. The story itself runs from early 1939 to some months after the Dunkirk evacuation (eg 1940).
