0.6.9 Tier IX British Battleship Lion


Lion

The last British battleship designed and laid down before the World War II. She was in many ways a development of the King George V class ships, from which she differed by the increased size, the strengthened armour, and the newest 406 mm guns as the main battery artillery.

Introduction

Lion can carry either 16-inch (406mm) guns or 16.5-inch (419mm) guns, but unlike German counterpart, her 419mm guns are simply superior than 406mm guns.

  1. RE opening statement: Vanguard was not based on Lion II's hull. They were completely separate programs, and the incomplete Lion hulls were scrapped. 

  2. Lion core armor Supreme not only 260mm, or armored model is not ready, or the way you compute core armor a little bit error

    Lion designed several programmes of protection initially inherited from the KGV, or 15-inch vertical (381mm), and even then there are a few programmes cut a 1-inch, or 260mm level of the BCS digital

      1. See G3D armor models

        Upper main charge is, indeed, 381, but this article has to be classified as mechanical room armor

        Core of the 260 is the lower armor belt boot tops, real design is to transition to a 6-inch piece, this engine does not see thickness gradients only into two
