flag warship HMS Rodney: Tier VII British Premium Battleship 1927

A battleship featuring an unconventional layout, designed within the confines of the Washington Naval Treaty. She's armed with 406 mm main battery guns arranged in three turrets concentrated on her bow. The warship's armor follows an all-or-nothing scheme, providing maximum protection to vital parts of the ship and minimal protection elsewhere.
