1: Why were the QE class BBs the ones they "modernized" between the two World
Wars when the REVENGE class BBs were the newer ones at that time?

The correct answer for this is.

The Queen Elizabeth class were revolutionary at the time of their construction by
having an entirely Oil-Fired boiler arrangement. This led to a 24 knot top speed in
the QE's. Unsure of their future supplies of petrol however, the Admiralty authorized
the "R" class to have a dual Oil/Coal boiler set-up and therefore decreased the
cruising speed and range of the R's. Inter-war refit's saw the removal of the coal
boilers in the R's and a movement to All Oil for these ships as well. However no
speed advantages were gained due to the fact that these ships had increased anti
aircraft armament and massive torpedo blisters installed at the time of the refit. The
R class couldn't break 21 knots and realistically had a top speed of 19.5 knots which
made them obsolete by WW2 standards and relegated them to convoy duty and
shore bombardment.
