In any case, right now I consider the current Iowa to be the gold standard of what a well balanced tier 9 battleship should be and what other tier 9 BBs should measure up to. Most notably German battleships and to a lesser extent cruisers, but more nations experimented with several similar designs. So hitting a citadel with AP always does increased damage?
