So the T7 RN BB King George the V's armada was released a couple of hours ago: 

 

There is some nice scenic shots, helpful info on strats and penetration angles....but you know what takes the cake? The suggested captain skills.

Thats right ladies and gents....WG suggests that you take IFHE and AR.....but wait there is more. If you stop the vid at 5:25 you will see that there is another Tier 2 skill on WG's KGV captain: :cap_wander:

The trolls can't troll you if you out troll them. WG playing 4D chess :fish_book:

IFHE on 356mm guns??

 

Would it even make a difference?

What if you're going in reverse? Do the front two turrets fire faster?

Puts you up to 115.7 (round to 116mm) of HE pen from 89mm, sufficient to make the difference and citadel pen T6-T9 RN CL plus the T6-T9 FR cruisers (those with belts and not spaced armor anyway), plus Budyonny, Chapayev and Donskoi.

I might be missing a few, but there are a lot of ~100mm armored cruisers in KGV's tier range you could gut.

Personally I'd use AP and HE in a mix.

Da comrade! It takes account of direction movement.

They also suggested playing it like a Battlecruiser when KGV was the second most heavily armored battleship of the war.....

Wargaming had too much vodka.

Depending on odds of AP causing a citadel, IFHE can seem more appealing since mad fire chance and citadels with HE are pretty devastating.
