  1. Port over of a friend's post from the Asia forums. 14.3 Remember this magic number during this thread. I have myself a Warspite, and tested the Yamato on multiple occasions every now and then. Now for those who played WoT would know what overmatch is. In WoT, if your shell calibre is more than 3x the thickness if your enemy armor, you will always pen. In World of Warships, if your shell calibre is more than 14.3x than the enemy's thickness, it will always pen. However you dont really notice this because of overmatching, usually a shell that size compared to an armor than thin would overmatch i.e. DDs and CLs. However, on battleships this is different. Yamato's main guns are 460mm, tier 9 and tier 10bbs have a bow armor of 32mm. This means than the Yamato will ALWAYS penetrate your bow armor, no matter the angle. And then proceeds to citadel you. Thats why the Yamato is so OP because angling against her makes no difference. In fact, its worse to angle against her because she can citadel you frontally. But hold up, why does the Warspite have to do with this? Warspite guns are 381mm. New Mexicos and Fuso's guns are 356mm. The armor of tier 6 battleships bow are 25mm thick. 25mm x 14.3 = 357.5. This means to overmatch the bow armor of a tier 6 BB, you need a calibre of 357.5mm or above. In which ONLY the Warspite has. This also explains why Tier 7 BBs and their 16" guns kill Tier 6 BBs very easily. tl;dr, Warspite overmatches the Bow of NM, Fuso is a 50% chance due to the 102mm sides, Dont angle your front towards the Warspite. This is what makes the Warspite the best tier 6 BB IMO.
