Iron Duke — British Tier V battleship.

A typical British battleship of World War I. The ship carried the same main battery guns as the battleships of the preceding class, but was armed with more powerful secondary battery guns.

Iron Duke is the only UK ship that I have to grind 4,000,000 credits.  I won her along with a 10 point captain but have never played her.  What skills do you recommend for the captain.  What upgrades for the ship?  If I fire HE there is a 40% chance of starting a fire.  Would IFHE be a good skill to match her HE qualities? 

She is very slow and awful traverse speed.  I hate wasting skills on those issues because they usually give something but also take something away.

This thing is a pile of crap. Turrets turn slower than a crippled snail, a cow can swim faster than this thing, and the guns won't hit the walls of a barn from the inside. The day I scrap her will be a day of joy and celebration.

I can tolerate her existence, of course Dunkirk made my life so much easier by allowing me to reach the max turret traverse for this ship. Also considering this ship is British, you can shoot at about anything and find pretty good success.

The short fuse AP is extra cheese at her tier though. Claps everything with light armor. You get spotter plane memes and it has great HE with decent armor for her tier spread. This ships is hilarious (and good) when you get to play without fun police and ships don't run away from you the entire game.
