Some advantages about battleships are that they equip powerful main battery guns, having a long range that can deal massive damage to other battleships, cruisers and carriers, and numerous secondary guns.It is advised to attack cruisers,especially light cruisers,as their thin armor will be easily penetrated by you AP shells.Furthermore,they do not have enough speed to dodge battleship salvos. From Tier VI onward, many battleships have powerful self-defense AA guns, which provide protection against enemy aircraft. Battleships also have superior armor, making them able to survive many shell hits (the large healthpool does come as an advantage). All this means that they can take a punishment before sinking.
However, battleships have their disadvantages. While their guns have immense damage per shell, they also have much longer reload times compared to other ships. The turrets also take a long time to turn, meaning that planning where your enemy is, so that you can turn your guns to face that area, is crucial. Battleships also have poor concealment and low mobility compared to cruisers and destroyers. This makes them quite vulnerable to torpedoes and focus fire from multiple ships, which battleships are not well suited to deal with, due to their lack of maneuverability.

IJN battleships have very powerful guns, especially in the Yamato. The armor scheme of Yamato is all or nothing, but all the other ships prior to Yamato have armor that is equally distributed on the ship. They are excellent long range fighters, with accurate guns and long range.Hence,utilize your long range,powerful guns and don't engage in a close range fight.
German Battle ships are known to have thicker armor than other countries. They perform the best in close range and is recognized by their low accuracy in long-range. Their signature turtleback armor and auto secondaries make them dangerous at close range.

French battleships are easy to recognize with their quadruple guns from tier VI onwards. They also have very fast speeds, which can be made even faster with the engine accelerator ability and tend to have powerful secondaries.
