The only thing I would say to iChase is that the Alabama is really the first ship which has come out as premium that has had as many errors as it did. When the Tirpitz came out, it was correctly modeled. When the Indianapolis came out, it was designed properly, etc.
And by designed properly, there were no glaring discrepancies between the way they were actually built versus the way they were modeled in-game as we saw with the South Dakota.
Tirpitz also had various improvements to her AA over time with WG. I recall I used to fly my Tier VI bombers to Tirpitz and had zero respect for her AA. Not anymore. Still not amazing but it's decent now. Other than players being derpy with Tirpitz, CVs were the real killers of her. She handled her own fine against other BBs, Battleships, but that nonexistent AA made you worry about aircraft.
