Why Viribus Unitus is the Best Ship in WOWS

I need help with this one, if you have ideas or arguments (however slim, or strange) why Viribus Unitus is the best ship in WOWS, please do contribute. (I'll be copy pasting below, if you find something funny, credit the authors in comments, not me!) :

Examples :

  1. Whenever you shoot down a plane with Viribus Unitus AA, you can be proud of your kill stealing luck.
  2. It couldn't be worse, could it?
  3. Best looking Commander, at least until Jingles.
  4. VU is now the best Austro-Hungarian ship in WOWS
  5. Viribus Unitus, means stronger together, which is helpful advice for this ship (no other ship offers advice in their name alone!)
  6. It's the only battleship in the game that can historically go full broadside and suffer no negative effects for doing so... since you get slaughtered through the bow just as handily. 
  7. It's the best ship to play against
  8. It’s the only battleship in the game that’s Hungary for a win. 
  9. Least damage taken per fire of any T5 battleship!
  10. Stealthiest BB in the game, you'll never see it coming.
  11. It makes the Krasny Krym laugh
  12. Greyest artificial reef
  13. It's proof of the minimalist "you only need 1 HP to stay alive" concept.
  14. It comes with built-in Reload Boost thanks to Adrenaline Rush
  15. it is a VERY nicely done model. The unique shape of the turrets are appreciated in particular
  16. It's the only ship you don't feel bad losing in. Because your maximum personal effort and a stray meteor falling through the ceiling to obliterate your keyboard would produce identical results.
  17. Viribus Unitus: the most XP for the HP of any BB!
  18. it's a ship that saves your wallet from getting emptier.
  19. Best ship to purchase now so you don't get it in a supercontainer later.
  20. Austro Hungarian jokes are now fully legit: Otto von Habsburg, after being told that Austria and Hungary were playing a football match, asked, "who are we playing against?" (this joke is old, gold, and takes a bit of digging to fully appreciate).

inspiring comment TM, thankyou. VU is now the best Austro-Hungarian ship in WOWS, totally OP compared to all other in game Austro Hungarian ships.

Maybe WG can make a map featuring the Danube so ships have to charge single file at each other firing forward guns only, duel style that way it would be hard for airborne and shipborne torpedo attacks, lets face it that kind a of map cant be any worse than the crap copy and paste ones we have now.

VU would excel in this type of engagement until you got hit by the opponents forward guns   :Smile_teethhappy:

It’s the only battleship in the game that’s Hungary for a win.

It's the best ship to train yourself on in the game (If you can make that bucket work, you can play anything at unicum strength!)

Most colorful Artificial Reef.

because VU has very grey/neutral tone armour, I made a minor modification to your suggestion in the OP.

Ok the gauntlet has been thrown...I will prove you are all wrong.  I have the time, since I am retired (suck it millennials).

10 point captain

PM, EM, BOS (basics of survivability not Brotherhood of Steel),  & CE

Will play 10 games and I will have at least a 50% win rate.  This of course will prove nothing, but the ship looks pretty awesome aesthetically.  Plus I have to have them all; it is a problem (still married though)

BTW, my sons are millennials, just kidding about the above comment.

According to WG propaganda,  it has the strongest nose armor at its teir.

So am I missing something?

I think you shot straight on that one, deadeye. The nose armor only comes into play at about 8km. Beyond that, it's a free-for-all on massive, 8,000+ damage full penetration shell hits. 

Wargaming's narrative is that the ship is powerful, and, by golly, they're sticking by that.

Maybe they were looking at its captain instead and thinking "that mustache provides a whole lotta armor for his nose!"
