Queen Elizabeth - optimum loadout?

As a side-effect of the recent BB-heavy gameplay, I've now got the Queen Elizabeth; normally, I would refer to the wiki for some hints on which upgrades to apply to her.

The wiki is a bit non-committal, so my initial version is the same as Warspite; I'm pretty confident this is sub-optimal however (QE has better AA, for one thing).

What do people recommend in the way of ideal upgrades for the Queen Elizabeth?

 

Thank you in advance!

For some rare and short fun with CVs: AA. She's great at it, but even with all the AA survivability things you could ever get QE will lose all her AA guns in just a couple of HE salvos you take.

 

Other than that: she's a BB without some specific identity like US AA or German Secondaries, best to build her tanky. Especially if you're taking that same captain up through the line, Monarch will need all the help your captain skills can get, and Lion & Conq really benefit from that extra bit of tankiness.

 

So, to actual suggestions (for the tanky build):

 

Modules:

  • Main Arm. Mod 1
  • DCS Mod 1
  • Aiming Sys Mod 1
  • DCS Mod 2 (she already turns on the spot, no need for Steering Mod 2)

Captain skills:

  • 1p - Preventative Maintenance / Priority Target (whichever you prefer)
  • 3p - Expert marksman
  • 6p - Superintendent
  • 10p - Concealment Expert
  • 14p - Fire Prevention

If this same captain goes further through the line up to Lion / Conq:

  • 16p - Jack of All Trades
  • 19p - Basics of Survivability / Vigilance (I strongly recommend BoS but both are valuable)

If the captain stays on QE:

  • 16p - Basics of Survivability / Vigilance (whichever you prefer)
  • 19p - Adrenaline Rush
  • Cool 2

If you want to have fun, go full AA build. Everything that pimps AA on cap and AA module. Easy clear sky, much fun seeing all those planes melt away. :cap_rambo:

Don't go full AA - You only have 8 guns and you will face 12 guns BBs

Those gun must be able to hit or you are dead
