As the title suggests, which ship is the best as of now? And which of the ships lead to the best tier 10 ships? Sure, the montana can broadside oneshot basically anything, but the Conqueror has that BS HE and Heal.

I would say the Lion is stronger and easier to play. You can always deal with any threat with your HE and still get good use of your AP on broadside targets. The heal is insanely strong as long as you don't get torped or citadel. Your concealment will help you avoid that most often turning undetected.

Montana and Conqueror are more or less equal. Conqueror will allow you to get high damage on BBs but Montana is the best cruisers killer of both and so is more used in Clan Battle for exemple.

Iowa, as it is historical. Was the Lion even built?

Iowa's good, but I preferred the Lion. Montana, however, is definitely better than the Conq. Conq's playstyle is rather specific (unless you are being useless long range HE spammer, there's nothing specific about that), but Monty's the best "jack of all trades" BB of this game.

Lion and Temeraire were ordered late February 1939, with construction starting in summer (July and June respectively) of that same year.

Conqueror and Thunderer were had their contracts awarded in August, of them Conqueror may have been ordered, Thunderer definitely wasn't.

 

No ships were laid down, all construction was suspended in September with the start of WW2 as resources were needed for other stuff like convoy escorts.

 

Both ships were scrapped after the end of WW2
