Enemy thunderer killed 5. I got hit 2 citadels from 18km. Guns too accurate and too big. At last our Hindenburg was fighting it with no tool to use against. 

i feel like it is the omitted OP ship overshadowed by Smolensk and PR campaigns.

She is intended to be very accurate (she uses large cruiser dispersion and as a result has comparable accuracy with Legendary Mod Yamato) as a proportion of player base think that there should exist higher-tier British equivalent of Warspite rather than the flamethrower+portable drydock of tech tree British battleships.

As a measure of balance, though she retains the trademark British HE, she does not boast Conqueror's superheal and has the current nerfed British citadel configuration.

the ship itself is squishy anyway, take HE damage like conqueror and doesnt heal like conqueror does

That compensates the lack of guns. But then you remember Kremlin has more guns plus the god-tier survivability....

Consider the old conq with 18inch guns. At that time 18inch seemed foolish with low accuracy and not-so-ideal ballistic. 

Now thunderer functions a little like republique, trading shell velocity with accuracy, overmatching 30mm planting, punch really hard against cruisers. 

Also be aware of its cruiser-like ruddle shift time:Smile_trollface:

In conclusion, thunderer is a BB when fighting against CAs, and a large cruiser against BBs

Also according to a famous Community Contributor from Canada, though Thunderer is largely a back-line sniper (and many players think such ships are encouraging camping and long range sniping meta), she completes her assigned role wonderfully with large cruiser dispersion.

The powercreep of T10 cruisers is another issue, though her accruate 457-mm rifles do play a significant role.
