Besides, look for the damage that Warspite received in Jutland just by 11" and 12" shells, imagine what the 15" will do...
Just what favorable position are you referring to? If one ship can shoot at the other then the reverse is true also. It's hard to imagine how one would define a favorable postion in this situation.
At Jutland Warspite was fired on by a number of German ships at once and she held up quite well, thank you very much! It was a demonstration of the marked superiority of that ship and her firepower over the German contemporaries. IIRC her main battery remained intact thoughout, as did her powerplant. Wasn't the damage mainly superficial and didn't really effect her fighting ability?

i wondered wat would have happened if the Bismarck would have met the HMS Warpite and the HMS Exeter.
