Technically both Rodney and Nelson outclassed her as 16" battleships. The QEs and the Rs were an even match in firepower and the KGVs mounted more guns with superior armor. Worse. Repulse had only enough armor to defeat 6"-8" gunfire. Or put another way, just enough armor to trigger the fuse on a 15" AP shell. Hood at least had armor equivalent to a WWI battleship and had an immune zone against 15" guns. Repulse could be penetrated at any range.
