  1. German 38cm buff incoming I predict, except traverse all the stats and number of guns are superior on monarch compared to Bismarck, tirpitz and gneisenau.


      1. It’s also more manuverable, thicker armor, and better camo than the bismarck. Not to mention superior AA as well except long range. Except for secondaries the Bismarck has a high probability to be obsoleted by monarch if these stats end up final.


        1. Are you forgetting Bismarck, Tirpitz, Gneisenau and Scharnhorst have turtle back? Meanwhile Monarch has no deck armor which will get torn up by HE and an above water citadel not protected by turtleback. It also has less HP and moves slower. Bismarck gets german Hydro and scharnhorst, tirpitz and gneisenau have torpedoes.

          The guns even aren’t that great… Look at those penetration values and then consider this thing is getting functionally the same 381mm guns that the premium HMS Hood got that are utterly horrid at fighting other BBs due to garbage fuse timers on the AP, all for a measly one gun over the Bismarck sisters. These guns are also significantly outranged by any tier 8 BB and really most tier 6-8 BBs can as well and you couple that with the fact it’s slower than every other tier 8 BB means kiting action against Monarch will be super effective.

          People who are complaining that the snipers that are Amagi and North Carolina or the stout brawler tanks Bismarck and Tirpitz will be “outclassed” by Monarch are looking at this wrong. Monarch cannot snipe and the devastating punishing salvos of either Amagi or North Carolina due to the lack of range, horrid fuse timer, lack of penetration at longer ranges and meh sigma. It can’t even contest Bismarck or Tirpitz in tanking due to an above water citadel, no troll bow armor, no troll turtle-back armor (Which amagi also has), garbage secondaries and no hydro acoustic to dodge torps… which she needs due to an equally as horrid torpedo protection as the german sisters. The only ship she moderately contests roles with is Alabama… And Alabama still has an under water citadel and scary torpedo protection rating + nasty 16″ guns at mid range unlike Monarch.

          Monarch is a cruiser and DD hunter through and through and a secondary front-line support if that’s not an option. Her kit practically screams that. Concealment better than some cruisers, maneuverability to tango with cruisers at close range and the infamous British super heal to rubberband it’s hp back after dealing with the fire and HE damage. It’s guns are even built for the job, the improved autobounce/normalization angles plus the aforementioned low fuse timer on the AP means she can punish those smaller ships with ease. If the BBs roll in, she’s a 2nd rate BB at best with very little ability to contest any of them.
