Queen Elizabeth and Queen Mary had a 120 man naval gunnery detachment (each) during WW2. I think they had multiple 6 inch, as well as heavy, medium and light AA guns. I cannot find a listingfor either. If you have one, please advise.
These ships had full load displacements of 72,000 and 77,400 long tons in 1941. This is not reflected in any variant of AE I have seen. They had an "operating speed" (cruising speed in British merchantship parlance of 29 knots), but I credit QE with 30 knots because she set the transatlantic record in1936 at that speed - a record unbroken until the S.S. United States in 1954. Actually, both probablybroke it - but wartime cruises don't count. Technically QE had a full speed of 32 knots and QM 33knots, but for game purposes I think we must use 33 for QE (so full speed yields a different number of hexes in one impulse - this is under test). They are the fastest ships in the game interms of sustained movement.
Both ships were modified in 1942, probably got Type 273 Radar (surface search for large ships),and certainly about tripled their troop capacity. QM could carry 16,000, QE 15,000. Slots 2488 and2489 (upgrading to 2468 and 2367 respectively as of the next update).
