Vanguard is a battleship based on HMS Vanguard. ( Chinese Simplifed : 前卫 / Pronounce : QianWei )
Vanguard is the final battleship built by E-Country. E-Country designed this class as a response to the delay of the Lion-class. Vanguard-class's design is similar to that of the KGV-class. However, her design fixed some defects from the former. Overall, she was the best designed battleships of the E-Country. However, she wasn't completed in period of the World War II. Vanguard had an outstanding performance in the North Sea Training Exercise, but she was mainly used as a "Royal Yacht" .She retired in 1954, as the last battleship of E-Country.

HMS Vanguard, always at your service. You're the new admiral? Very well, I can finally be excused from the boring military exercises.
Vanguard hereby accepts your oath, admiral. As the last pride of the Royal Navy, I shall lead you to an everlasting ode of victory.
Highest AA value in game. Her AA gun and fire control radar are also the best.
Though firepower is not enough, her speed is fast enough.
She was able to be constructed during the event (25 Jan to 27) but the lowest steel limit is 650 instead of 600, which led to lots of players failing to build Vanguard. This event caused a great loss of resources and Vanguard is called "Fifty Steel"by Chinese players since the event.
One more thing that you need to know is that Vanguard requires not only 650 steels but also 80 ammunition.(Thirty ammunition lol)
4 Apr 2015, someone found that there is a player who has Vanguard in Lexington Server (iOS), which should be impossible. It might have been a bug of server data and was fixed soon.
Nicknamed "Panguard（鍋衛）" by Chinese admirals because her gun turrets' design look like frying pans.
