The Ironic part is that the Iowa's are in scale for this sort of game while the sovs and udaloys are not!
They're in scale but they're not really balanced against anything. An Iowa is just going to take a gigantic dump on anything that Redfor can field in the littoral environment and then it's going to die like a bitch to aircraft carrying missiles. Mind you, Sverdlovs vs. Assorted South American Cruisers could be a laugh and a little more symmetrical. They're still going to get murdered by aircraft though.
Imagine it though 4 cards of Iowa's one for each of them!
Though they would probably then get sunk by some cheap amphibious ATGM vehicle still pissed off that I lost 3 type 21s that way on a skirmish
