 I have questions on the Bayern in regards to her refit state. What information was used by Wargaming when they made it? I cant seem to turn up anything on a google search. All I can find is the ship in her WWI shape. Im guessing she was never refit to the "B" hull we see in wows, so where did they get their information? :)

It's a fictional refit, like a "what if the ship was not scrapped and survived into the 1930s and 1940s" refit.

A few other ships have this kind of refit.

Drugs.  The Bayern class ships were never modernized.  They simply made it up.

Stock hull isn't fully historical either. On the foremast is a gun director instead of a spotting top, and she has eight AA guns instead of two. As if six more AA guns will make any difference against enemy aircraft.

This ... the modernization upgrades are totally fictional.

Bayern is one of several ingame ships that were scrapped at or shortly after the end of WW1. Therefore, they weren't refitted later on like some of their contemporaries such as New York, New Mexico, Kongo or Fuso. One of the more crucial components of those refits was the addition of heavier and heavier AA armaments. Wargaming didn't want ships that didn't survive long enough to recieve AA refits to be more more vulnerable to aircraft than their peers, so they gave those ships what-if 1930s refits.
