In co-nominator Dank's words, "The big battleship-on-battleship fights are the images that seem to stick in peoples' minds ... that's kind of the point of all that weaponry and armor ... but because battleships cost so much, navies have usually been very reluctant to risk them. In 1944, with its back to the wall, the Imperial Japanese Navy did risk it all ... with dramatic results ... This FAC completes the Fusō-class battleship trilogy."
Nominator Nikkimaria presented what she described as "a great and touching story" of the premiere during the Siege of Leningrad of Shostakovich's 7th. It was listed as a Good Article and Peer Reviewed before FAC.

Schlesien was a Deutschland-class pre-dreadnought battleship which served with the German Navy in both world wars. In his nomination statement Parsecboy noted that this is among the last articles on a German battleship to be developed to A-class standard—a remarkable achievement by any measure.
