Now if you want to add vertical inclination to reach a 45° degree figure, you'd need between 40° and 45°. A sip listing that bad is capsizing, even if you subtract 10° of belt inclination.

0100 open fire - Inclination = 34deg
0101 - inclination = 26deg
0102.5 cease fire - inclination = 9deg
0103 = minimum inclination
0104 resume fire - inclination = 10deg
0105 inclination = 46deg
0106 inclination = ~60deg
0107 cease fire inclination = ~80deg
The angle of fall of the 16" projectiles is 5.5degs minimum (8500yds)
The inclination of the KGV armour over the magazines is 5 to 10 degs for any hits on those areas.
