In-game screenshot from the brief period on the test server where they allowed high tier BB shells to overmatch bows. You can see where the bad Amagi touched the Iowa.

Originated from Steam when it went into beta (2003?), since I launch the WoWS Launcher from that I figured I'd keep the "tradition."

Wow, I've seen that sig a hundred times and never noticed that.  Now, I can't un-see it.  Thanks. :/

 

Anyhoo, mine is a crop of Dunkerque's avatar from Victory Belles - kind of a Western world twist on KanColle.  Also used it in my sig file.

My profile pic fits the name...

As for my sig, the left is the old Regia Marina flag, and the rest is a reference to my favorite cruiser of the second world war, the Gorizia, and 1a Division, which she was a part of and occasionally flagship of.

The blue flag with two stars is a rank flag signalling an 'Ammiraglio di Divisione,' which is equivalent to a rear admiral (so long as it's flown from the foremast. If flown from the main mast, it signals an 'Ammiraglio di Squadra,' which would correspond to a Vice Admiral), who would command, for example, a cruiser division.
The image above that is the sleeve insignia for the same rank.

To put it lightly, I was a far less humble person when I first made my account than I am now... :D

Mine is rather new as I just got this picture, but it is of a character from a story that I am writing. He is an alien, psychic, anthropomorphic wolf with a plasma bow that commands a space battlecruiser and a marine detachment.

Ryosuke Takahashi from Initial D.  I decided to screenshot that from the anime after I saw the image was appropriated in this video and because I couldn't find an image of good-enough quality.  I believe that image existed for a while beforehand, but this was where I first saw it.

Was originally going to add the caption but I realized it wouldn't be readable, so I just stuck with the unedited screen capture.  That and because the original came from a recording of the TokyoPop dub of the series, which was trash.

That one looks like a glorified St Louis to me lol 

Except she is much better armed than the Inquisitor but like almost all pre-Dreadnought battleships and Armored Cruisers she relied on her secondary batter for the majority of her firepower.

  • 8 × 8 in (203 mm)/45 caliber guns
  • 12 × 7 in (178 mm)/45 caliber guns
  • 20 × 3 in (76 mm)/50 caliber guns
  • 12 × 3 pounder guns
  • 4 × 1 pounder guns

The 1 pounder, 3 pounder, and 3" would be the anti torpedo armament with the 7", 8" and the 12" for the real damage dealing.

Mine is in my username, but I guess I'll break it down.  The game Warframe features controllable characters known as "warframes" and Valkyr is one of them.   There are also prime versions, which are basically upgraded versions that are styled in a more uniform way between each other.  Currently, I use Valkyr Prime as my profile icon.
