Not to look a gift horse in the mouth...
She has two pair of 12" guns, not two triples. She also has six twin 7.5" in the same general layout as the Lord Nelson
class's 9.2", save all turrets are twins. Her armor does roughly match up with her contemporaries, so does her speed.
She wouldn't mount any aircraft, as the 'alternate universe' to which she belongs 1.) has yet to develop effective naval aviation by her launch date (1905) and 2.) the use of aircraft in armed conflict- whether the aircraft be armed or not- is forbidden in our 'alternate universe.'
A couple of technical questions:
1.) If the guns on the Lord Nelson
class battleship and the Minotaur
class armored cruisers are the exact same gun in both bore and caliber, why are the ones on the Lord Nelson
selected to be Weak
while the guns on Minotaur
2.) If 1/2 of the Canopus
class battleship's Casemate
guns can fire forward, why is it that none of the Lord Nelson
's turreted guns do so?
Are these the kind of things that the new edition will correct?
