Tally ho eh what old boy? England expects every man (or woman) to do his (or her) duty.

 

"Rule Britannia, Britannia rules not much

 Less than the Spanish

 Or the French

 Or the Dutch."

 

Always look forward to new ships, especially BBs, and especially RN ones, which come complete with a silly accent.

Nelson, the Izumo of RN. Put in reverse and que "Long live the queen". Enjoy your enemies burning while sipping on tea.

 

Looks like the E-Type Jaguar of BBs:- A long, long bonnet and the cabin at the rear.

During the ships existence, the Rodney & Nelson were jokingly referred to as "Rodnol " & "Nelsol", because they looked similar to tanker ships that belonged to a company that always had the tanker names ending with "ol"

 

They were a cut down version of the proposed "N3" design battleship, their design is unconventional because they added a lot of lessons learned during WWI, but the original designs were "trimmed" after the Washington treaty on 1922, so they lost size, speed & armour to comply with the new regulations agreed on.... Another nickname for them is cherry tree ships, so called after Washingtons cherry tree had been cut down.

 

They had unusual underwater torpedo protection, because they sandwiched seawater in between armour plate... So it would be interesting to see how it performs..

I'm not, I want more BB's. But I want less ship lines with consumables to define them.

WG didn't know how to define these ships...so...give them smoke? nah, radar. Cuz if it's one thing the overly nerfed IJN dd's need is more radar. Meanwhile Khab is like 'I dont even care'

I see where you're coming from with that statement, new contents in game are always welcoming news, but it's not mores BBs but more BBs in game that concerns the players.
 
According existing information , the RN BBs seemingly has the ability to use Radar Surveillance consumable as a sort of gimmick/ national percularity. The addition of such consumable, much like how German Battleships received the Hydro Actoustic Search consumable, could potentially lead to 1. increased Battleship popularity in a game and 2. dilution of the Cruiser's supposed role in the game meta. I shall explain:
 
1. the improved utility of with consumables implies a higher BB player population, and with statistics indicating that 
2. Cruisers in this game are supposed to be supportive with fire power & consumables (such as providing AAA and radaring enemy DDs) according to the descriptions in game. The trend where BBs are receiving consumables akin to their Cruisers counterparts, such as German Battleships getting Hydro and Missouri, eventually negate the necessity and utility of cruisers in battle when a BB can do the exact same thing as you do
 
Perhaps Flamu's comment on Reddit about the RN battleship news will best explain the scenario, said comment cannot be posted onto the forum owning to "bad words"  in  the post

I'm ok with the radar thing as long as it comes down to this. Give them New Orleans radar in exchange of the repair slot. Just like how RN cruisers would choose between radar and smoke. Maximum of 2 charges for premium, 3 with SI.
