Next thing I overlooked. The 6" are one deck below the 1st and 2st main turret but still above the level of the 3rd and 5th.

The lower forward casemates on US dreadnoughts were also built on the same level as quarterdeck, that was not really the issue - but they were so far forward that the ywere directly exposed to waves in far milder sea states (let alone the aft casemates below quarterdeck).

I already got sunk by one of those, in my shiny new Iron Duke.
One of those hopeless games where there just aren't enough islands to hide behind - I think I had enemies on 3 sides at the end when there was me and two CVs left on our side.
