I'd like to see these as part of a pan euro tree.

She'd line up pretty well against South Carolina and Kawachi, but I'm afraid all the other T3 BBs would probably outclass her.

Bellerophon is the best tier 3 besides the german tier 3 premium. But i think Espana would do just fine.

I was just thinking that these would be a fun little battleship to add to the game. They are the smallest and the only dreadnaughts built by spain. So it would be an easy way to get the spanish navy represented in the game.

Sure I think it would be a great idea, plus it would give my König Albert and Nassau a new Target.:Smile_izmena:

Konig albert while i want one badly was a huge mistake on wargamings part a tier 4 with 350mm armor has no place in tier 3 matches. Nassau doesn't have enough armor to resist the 12 inch 50s that the Espana carries so the Nassau player wouldnt want to get too cocky going up against her. Espana would more than likely out range Nassau also.

Not in my opinion, because of her turret placement she can only bring 3 turret, or 6 main battery guns, to bear on any target. That, coupled with her slow speed of 19.5 knots, and her light armor and weight, seems to make her unsuitable to meet other tier 3 ships, though she is obviously much to strong for a tier 2 ship. There would have to be a lot of "balancing" before she would be competitive at tier 3 though. My opinion.

Apparently it was possible for her to fire all four turrets on a broadside. But yes her turret placement is less than ideal which in my opinion would add to her gameplay. Kind of like kaisers turret layout. Her 203mm armor is sufficient to withstand the the shells of tier 3 ships. The Kongo at tier 5 makes due with the same armor thickness.

I agree, would love to see it. There's actually a few possible options for naval ships from Spain. Not enough for a whole line though unfortunately.
