Thunderer or Lutjens?

Got to the point where I have enough coal for either Thunderer or Lutjens.  Already have other coal ships in port, including Smolensk and Jean Bart.  Anyway, I already have 19 point commander on my Hindenburg, and while I do prefer playing cruisers over BBs forgoing an interesting BB in favor of situational commander bonus sounds like poor decision.  Is Lutjens really worth it over Thunderer?

<Edit> I already have special British 19 point commander with extra bonuses on Conqueror, so that Thunderer would have ready commander.

I'm not picking up any of the coal commanders until I have all the ships I want first. 

Unless you are maining the Hindenburg in ranked atm I'd get the ship.

Personally I’d always say to go with the ship, especially when the commander is the same price as a shipmwith the coupon. Thunderer’s a good ship, and if you like Conq but want one with harder hitting AP and a baked in LM, you’ll probably like it.

Back in the day I liked Conqueror enough to get LM on it just by playing on the regular.  But I don’t remember the last time I played it.

If you go for Thunderer it will help with the 4th Directive British BB mission too! :Smile_Default:

I also think the British Captain Cunningham also has a fire starter trait as well, although I think he has a flood one too; at least he gives you possible options for putting in the Thunderer? :Smile_honoring:

Well, Thunderer is also a cruiserish BB, so it has that going for it too.

If you are a cruiser main and love playing the hindy, then I would seriously consider him. His traits are easy to trigger and a 7.5% dpm bonus is massive. 

If you like sitting in the back sniping, then go thunderer, her gun handling is SO good and rewarding.

I personally got Lutjens since my ship coupon had been used earlier on the Bourgogne and I was saving the next one for Somers (which I finally got last night). Currently I'm working my way towards Yoshino.
