She has the correct armour for the class - CAN WE PLEASE FIX THE WARSPITE NOW!

Also, I noticed that they didn't add the later refit armour on the conning tower of the QE...

 

Actually, the armour layout may be ok, she rides too high in the water!

I upgraded my Queen Elizabeth to a Queen Elizabeth 2.  The accommodations are luxurious but the armament is a bit lacking.

I kinda want to keep the Warspite's armour as it is, more food for my Tirpitz.

Hey now, lets not be mean... We all know she deserves to be fixed.

Looking at the armor viewer in the game, it appears that the QE's armor is actually worse.  The only 2 differences that I noticed in the armor scheme was that the entire main armor belt on the Warspite is 330 mm, whereas on the QE, the bottom portion of the main armor belt is 267 mm thick, and that the Warspite has 2 different thickness plates extending towards the bow (152 mm, then 102 mm), whereas the QE only has the 102 mm plate extending toward the bow.  This would be a nerf to the Warspite, not a buff.

Between the two, after just 2 matches (yeah i know, not a real learning curve), I free XP'd through the Queen Elizabeth.  I couldn't take her anymore and an insult to my Warspite.  XP past the QE if you can.

I like my Warspite. I skipped QE. Nuff said.

 

I am keeping T3-T5 and am starting to like KGV (still stock and grinding).

 

Warspite (after the turret buff) is better than QE.

Yes, it has been pointed out that my title and text is misleading, Sorry.

The Warspite sits too high in the water - Lower it to the QE height please.

 

Also - the front 102/152 transition is not visible on the QE as the torpedo bulge is shaped differently

Warspite torpedo bulge is 25mm - QE is 19mm - I do not think that makes any practical difference

The Warspite torpedo bulge is in 2 parts - still - no practical difference that I am aware of. Unless the gap allows HE damage into the ship

The QE citadel athwartship = 51/152 / Warspite = 102/152 - the 102 area is larger than the QE2 51 area

In fact the barbettes are different between the 2 also - Turret armour is the same

barbette

QE                            Warspite

254                               256

254                               256

254                               256

152                               256

152                               177

                                     177

 

I honestly do not know why there are so many differences...
