Maryland vs Nagato.......Perry
No contest here, the modern fast firing guns of the Maryland would easily win. The ships match up good except for that. Might get in a battle in if we can.
USS Maryland vs IJN Nagato, always curious what these 2 bruisers would do to each other
Using Panzerschiffe game rules, the Scheer is the clear winner. The only battle she lost is when she closed with the Baltimore. The Scheer can easily keep a broadside to the Baltimore, which has to close to get her secondaries into action. The Baltimore must charge the Scheer, she cannot go toe to toe with her main weapons, and her speed advantage did not help.
Ships started at 12 miles apart bow to bow, and fought until one of the ships was sunk.
Who knows what would really happen, but using the game values, that was the outcome.
I will try to answer any questions you might have as best as I can.
