I started a 1900 game as Japan on v1.05b. It's currently 1928 and I don't have superimposed turrets, despite researching level 13 of ship design, and several follow-up techs like "superimposed turrets on CA" and the superimposed turrets on CL and destroyer techs. It is extremely frustrating. I can't even rebuild my own foreign-built ships, because apparently my engineers are too baffled by the appearance of superimposed turrets.
Edit: another country finally sold me the tech... in the 1930s.
I get that tech is supposed to be variable to a degree, but it seems like tech isn't just delayed: if you miss techs in the window that they are supposed to be discovered, they are never researched at all. I didn't get torpedo bombers until about the same time, because I skipped ahead to the advanced torpedo tech.
