Warspite is a battleship based on HMS Warspite. ( Chinese Simplifed : 厌战 / Pronounce : YanZhan )
Warspite was one of the more famous British battleships in the history, she is the second ship of Queen Elizibeth class. She paticipated in the Battle of Jutland right after she was launched, and performed well. She went through major modification during the 30’s. In WWII, Warspite joined the Battle of Norway, and severely damaged German destoryer fleet. She also did very well in the Mediterranean front, especially the Battle of Cape Matapan, in which she severely damaged Italian Navy. She also had a record of landing a hit 27km away from her target. She also helped the Normandy Landings in 1944. Her Captain Admiral Sir Andrew Cunningham regarded her as “Grand Old Lady”. It was unfortunate that she was scarpped in 1950.

Ooh aah, it looks like that this gent is the fleet commander. I am Queen Elizabeth Class battleship, Warspite. Please bring me to the field. Ho~Ho~Ho
Went through all these combats, but never fell in battle. I see. So, you are my clover.
On the way to Narvik in 1940, Warspite's Fairey Swordfish sank U-64 with bombs and became the first aircraft to sink a U-boat in the war.
During the battle of Calabria, Warspite landed one of the longest gunnery hits from a moving ship to a moving target in history. Warspite hit the Regia Marina battleship Giulio Cesare from approximately 24km away.(And her estimated maximum gun firing range was only 22km. NEVER underestimate Britishmen's "hammer work"~)
Warspite's nickname is the "Grand Old Lady" based on her many battle honours and other factors throughout the wars.(The "other matter" was that after she managed to escape heavy German fire in the battle of Jutland,the UK prime minister said:"this British grand old lady surely could run fast with her dress in her hands".That is because she escape the battle way faster(nearly 27 knots)than her normal speed(24.5 knots). WHAT A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.)
Warspite also appears in game as the enemy in the campaigns which is the Battle of Narvik and the Battle of Cape Matapan. (To teach how you should be as a ship)
As a elderly, she'd like to share some ship experiences to the juniors.
