Queen Elizabeth — British Tier VI battleship.

An excellent design, the Queen Elizabeth class of battleships served with distinction through both world wars. They were, in many ways, the first modern battleships deployed by any navy.

Player Opinion

Performance

Tier VI's Queen Elizabeth is the last classical dreadnought of the British battleship line. Players who own Tier VI premium Warspite — a Queen Elizabeth-class battleship — or are veterans of Tier VI German battleship Bayern will find Queen Elizabeth to be familiar territory.

Queen Elizabeth possesses adequate speed for her tier, and has a solid armor belt married to hard-hitting, accurate guns with good firing angles. Her ability to overmatch the common bow armor of all existing battleships through Tier VII is a notable advantage. She does not suffer nearly as much from the need to plan based upon the battle situation as New Mexico, Arizona, or Fuso, though she does suffer from the same glacially slow turret traverse speed as predecessors Iron Duke and Orion. Her anti-aircraft suite is the best amongst Tier VI battleships, blowing past even that of New Mexico.

Players will find Queen Elizabeth to be as dominant as Warspite in same-tier matches and entirely capable in mid-tier matches. While she can struggle as a bottom tier ship, she's no less capable than any other Tier VI battleship.

Pros:

  • Powerful guns with outstanding accuracy.
  • Extended armor belt.
  • Good maneuverability.
  • Best anti-aircraft armament of all Tier VI battleships.

Cons:

  • Underwhelming torpedo protection.
  • Mediocre main battery range.
  • Large, vulnerable superstructure.
  • Very slow turret traverse.

Research

Queen Elizabeth is somewhat unique as the preferred research priority depends very much on personal play style. There is no upgrade which provides an obvious advantage over the other choices. Players who prize maneuverability will want to research the engine upgrade first, those who prefer the ability to hit targets at range will choose the fire control system, and those who value anti-aircraft protection and survivability will choose the hull.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrades for Queen Elizabeth are as follows:

Another option in Upgrade Slot 4 is Steering Gears Modification 1 (Reduces rudder shift time: -20% rudder shift time.), for players who prefer increased rudder shift speed over maximizing Queen Elizabeth’s survivability.

Commander Skills

Consumables

Queen Elizabeth can equip the following consumables:

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Queen Elizabeth with Type 16 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Alternatively, the 2018 New Year raid campaign provided captains with the Snowy camouflage with the same bonuses as the premium.

Signals

Economic signals are left to the discretion of the player. The following is a basic summary of all signals which provide a combat bonus.
