Armour 7+ for KGV, Nelson but not for Iowa?

Hi all

I am no expert do will ask openly why the Iowa's which were considered the best overall battleship design I would like to ask what parameters led to this.

I have a few naval books and after looking at a couple for Stats I am a bit puzzled why the Iowa class are not 7+ too ?

Thanks

Re: carrier flights ?

That's seems a bit poor considering the amount of research that has gone into this second edition. Perhaps a document like the refit could be done with lists for carrier flights throughout the war ? I know for example Ark royal had swordfish and fulmars at the start of the war but how many flights o...

Re: Welcome to the Open Playtest

I think it is this

QE and valiant got a more extensive refit than the other 3 so the other 3 got an elevated degree of fire during refit to compensate - hence the longer firing range they have
