  1. Intro: Shoutout to fellow Cardfighters and Captains! Background: Skip this at your discretion. Main point is at the Story section. I have been an avid reader of Royal Navy History, especially so their fleet of battleships. From the mighty Dreadnought, to the Queen Elizabeth class-Battleship, the first RN BB with 15 inch guns, to the Nelson, having the distinction of having the biggest caliber of guns in a battleship (16 inch, they also had 18 inch, but was reserved for monitors and experiment on Furious), to the mighty King George V class Battleship, having 10x14 inch guns, and the spearhead of Britain's military might, alongside it's carrier force, but I was most interested upon the particular battleship, HMS Vanguard She is the last Battleship ever built by the UK, and never sought a chance to prove herself in combat (but did serve as the Royal Family's Yatch in their visit to North Africa), and was the last of a long lineage of naval history for the Royal Navy. Flash forward to HS Days. Thanks to AXN, Animax, and previous fascination with Yu-Gi-Oh, I have been drawn towards the anime / TCG series Cardfight Vanguard. It's just awesome. Got myself (and my best friend) a deck. We just had a ton of fun Story: Well, while watching the video "The Last Battleship", a documentary about HMS Vanguard's last moments, and her journey from Flagship of the Royal Navy to scrap metal, there was a part, where the said Battleship broke off her escorts, and she ran aground near a pub, "as if to acknowledge the holiday crowds..." At the next tab, was one of the then-new episodes of CFV. And the chorus just got me laughing and rolling on the floor (literally!) I immediately remembered the recent "run-in" of th previous ship running aground in the shallow ground, breaking off from the group, and "breaking her spell" XD Proposal: Make an anime skin for the ship, based off the Anime. Idea in mind: Blue Wave Dragon, Tetra-Drive Dragon of the Aqua Force Clan. In Cardfight Vanguard, the Aqua Force clan is a clan focused around maritime / naval units, and is fitting anime for the game World of Warships Now, the ship's 8 x 15 inch guns would be replaced by the dragon's cannons, and the ship decorated with all sorts of Aqua Force stuff. Anyways, just this idea floating around in my mind

    The World's Last Battleship: HMS Vanguard (23)

    The guns of HMS Vanguard were supplied with superchargers and modified for higher elevation, making for more powerful and longer ranged firepower. But yes, at most tier IX. Lion-class would most likely be IX or X.

    The British, French, Italian, and German navies are the next ones to be up. A small possibility for the Dutch and Nordic Navies

    British Royal Navy and Battlecruisers

    TBH, the 14in > 16in guns of the Royal Navy. The problem of the 16in guns of the RN was that they were relatively lightweight for their caliber, wherein the 14in, even smaller, was more of a higher velocity than the 16 inch, and more damaging. And also, HMS Vanguard was issued with 15in guns that can use superchargers for longer effective range than the average British warship with the 15in gun. But it is up to WG for them to decide which is which. Tier VII: Nelson / Rodney Tier VIII: KGV Tier IX: Vanguard Tier X: Lion

    MY guess, the Kongo-class BBs, right?
  12. The KGV-class battleships were the best ships the RN got. But after the destruction of HMS Hood, and the sinking of Prince of Wales, and Pearl Harbor, they realized that they needed a better battleship. The Lion-class Battleship, were modified KGVs, elongated and fitted with 9x16 inch guns, just like the North Carolina & South Dakota class of the USN, and an improved version of the 16 inch guns of the Nelson & Rodney.. But they were scrapped, realizing that the new 16 inch guns were still in development, plus the resources were scarce to scrape together for the British. So they made a parallel project, using the 8x15inch guns on the Courageous-class and learning from the lessons learned to make a true successor to the KGV-class. The result, was HMS Vanguard. Underwater protection was top notch, design against hit from 1000kg Torpedos. Unfortunately, she was too late to see action in WWII, being commissioned in 1946, due to the constant delays and overruns in development and design of the ship. She was then used for the Royal Trip to South Africa and Queen Elizabeth II's Coronation Review in 1952. So, when the Royal Navy comes in the future patches, HMS Vanguard would most likely be Tier X BB or Tier IX BB of the RN, and if it were to be tier IX, then most likey, the Lion-class Battleships would be the Tier X BBs
