    I love the Yamato- its sluggish but its the most powerful BB in the game.

    I love the Warspite- just u have to be completely broadside to get the aft turret firing which is a bit annoying.

    the 15" guns Vanguard had were accurate & reliable- but just didnt have the power of the 16" guns the Iowa had- you are comparing a 1938lb shell fired from a 15"/42 gun with a 2700lb shell fired from...

    HMS Vanguard was a great ship- but imagine if she had been fitted with guns like the ones the Iowa had- she would be indoubtably the finest BB ever built.

    I have no doubts that the Iowa would have been able to sink the Bismarck here's why:
