843414110__HMS_Invincible.thumb.jpg.6f1a340d303cdffec359e47a3bd86032.jpg

Main battery:
8 4x2 305mm/45cal Mark X guns
AP Shell 305 mm AP Mk VIa
AP Shell weight 389.8 kg
AP Shell Maximum Damage 8,100
AP Shell Initial velocity 831m/s
AP Shell Krupp 2187
AP Shell Broadside DPM 129,600‬
AP Shell auto bounce angle 75
AP Shell armed threshold 51mm
AP Shell detonation delay 0.015sec
Reload 30sec
Turret traverse 60sec
Range 14.3km
Dispersion R x 10.3 + 51 = 198.29

Secondary battery:
16 16x1 BL 102mm/40cal Mark III guns
HE Shell 102mm HE Large 31lbs
HE Shell weight 14.1kg
HE Shell Initial velocity 701m/s
HE Shell maximum damage 1,500
HE Shell fire chance 6%
Reload 6sec
Range 4.5km
Dispersion 22*Rx333.3333+30

Maneuverability:
Maximum Speed 25.5knots
Turning circle radius 543m
Rudder shift time 14.58sec

Concealment:
Surface detectability range 13.32km
Air detectability range 6km
Smoke firing detectability range 12.33km

Consumables:
Slot 1 Damage control party
Slot 2 Repair Party 3

Summary:
HMS Invincible realistically will probably be a port queen for most players, similar to dreadnought and Mikasa. She doesn't have much going for her besides her speed for a tier 3 BB which is certainly fast, but is still not enough to justify getting her over dreadnought who has an additional gun over Invincible. Her only other positives are probably her very useful shell characteristics and her long secondary battery range for the tier.

HE Shell Initial Velocity 900m/s
HE Shell fire chance 10%
Reload 15sec
Turret Traverse 51.43sec
Range 14.7km
Sigma 1.7
Dispersion R x 7.2 + 84 = 189.84

Secondary battery:
8 8x1 15cm SK L/45 guns
HE Shell 15cm HE K Gr 18
HE Shell weight 45.3kg
HE Shell Initial velocity 835m/s
HE Shell maximum damage 1,800
HE Shell fire chance 10%

HE Shell maximum damage 1,000
HE Shell fire chance 4%
Reload 4sec
Range 3km
Dispersion 11*Rx333.3333+30

Maneuverability:
Maximum Speed 25.4sec
Turning circle Radius 590m
Rudder shift time 12.5sec

Concealment:
Surface Detection range 13.54km
Air Detection Range 7.77km
Smoke Firing Detection Range 14.99km

Consumables:
Slot 1 Damage control party
Slot 2 Repair party 3

Summary:
The Blucher's advantages are his quick rate of fire and his accurate secondary battery. Let's start with the main guns which are pitifully small at only 21cm opposed to ships such as Nassau whom has 28.3cm guns, effectively this gives him heavy cruiser guns on a BB at tier 3, they make up for their short comings with their insane rate of fire of 15sec. This should allow you to burn down any ship you can't straight up pen. The second plus for Blucher is the short ranged yet accurate secondary battery guns, they use the same dispersion formula as Mass however their base range is a pitiful 3km.

In all fairness, I have a T4 prem russian bb. But it does nothing because it can get me nothing, it cannot be used in events, or campaign, etc.

Having premium ships is ok but why bother with something that you cannot particapate in anything with it that counts?
