King George V — British Tier VII battleship.

The lead ship of a series of next-generation battleships for the Royal Navy. She was superior to her predecessors in terms of armor protection and AA capabilities. This battleship was equipped with aircraft-handling gear. Due to international armament restrictions, the ship's main guns had a relatively small caliber of 356 mm.

I want the KGV to have armour that represents it's Real life counter part, you know, the second most armoured battleship built in WWII? And in some cases better armoured than the Yamato. Torpedo protection would be nice as well, Oh and you know, Super heavy AP 14 Inch guns. 

 

You know something a little more realistic.

Yeah, how hard could that be??? It's one of the most written about classes of BB, and one of the few to actually engage in a BB duel. It was very well armored, designed around the concept of survivability with multiple layers of protection and one of the best torpedo protection systems, and weathered gunfire from Bismark and Prinz Eugen very well. And it's guns did well also, examination of the wreck underwater of Bismark showed that "The armour-piercing capability of the gun and its ammunition is exhibited by the conning tower on the wreck of the German battleship Bismarck, provided with 14-inch thick armour, which is said to resemble a "Swiss cheese".[82]  Note that Bismark had 12" belt armor, so in game KGV should be able to out-tank a Bismark since it did so in RL, yes??

AM I right to be slinging HE in this thing 90% of the time, apart from when I see some close range juicy cruiser broadsides?
