You're not the first person to see the resemblance.  She had the nickname Nelsol back when she was in service just for that reason. :)

The Nelson got its looks as a result of the need to balance treaty requirements (weight restrictions), armor, and maximum punch.

Hey, to make up for that flammable fuel, you get the superheal to really fix up those burns.

Someone with some engineering knowledge might want to read up on Nelson. I seem to remember issues with boiler water and maybe refueling at sea. Other compromises made to make treaty weights that severely handicapped both ships use in WWII.  The guns were not exactly winners either.

If someone made an oil tanker skin for the Nelson, I would download it in a heartbeat!
