I think the Battleship Szent Istvan would be a decent tier 4 premium Battleship

Armament:

4 x 3 12"/45 K 10 guns

12 single 150mm/50 K 10 guns

12 single 66mm/50 K 10 guns

3 single 66mm/50 anti-aircraft K 10 guns

4 533mm torpedo tubes (these can be ignored for game reasons)

Armour:

150-280mm waterline belt

30-48mm deck

60-280mm on Turrets and Conning Tower

120-180mm on bulkheads

Speed:

20kts


 

I think this ship should be in game over her 3 sisters due to her having a unique 2 shaft design and Prinz Eugen already being used for another ship in game. What are your opinions?

A very compact  good looking design,  good arcs,  moderate armour,  guns....probably like Itchy's,  fairly poor torpedo  protection and a  bit slow,  so  turning circle and speed like Nassau,  will see what  I have on  them.

Would be a fairly soild Tier 4 BB. Although her torpedo protection was... kind of shitty.^^

I really love her 4x3 turret setup. It is so much better looking than the Nikolai, although her guns are rather short (only L45 compared to 50 or 52 of other Tier 4 BBs)

The armor is ok, speed fits (although slightly slower), who cares about Anti-Air. Premium Tier IVs don't have such a thing.
