Just tested it in the training room and a Khabarovsk at full honk can make it through the net for a ram. Just a PSA for all who mount the module.

Seriously? That's some sort of awesome, though didn't they do away with nets before WWII?

I am so very skeptical about these torpedo nets, are these the "new weapons" WG was talking about?

 

Well IMO I'd run concealment anyway, not digging these nets.

 

I think the new weapon they discussed is the rocket thingies on the Hood. AA weapons, Jingles talks about them in his video review about the Hood.

 Give 'em time, they will. Loud, clear, and very salty!


 

I'd love to get those nets for my ships.  :playing:

       

 

But isn't that the point of the thread; that's why it is so hilarious!

 

In the name of balance I'm gonna release a thread about the DE skill being raised by 1% next week. Now that will cause the BB community to combust lol. :great:

Normal people call this trolling and baiting. I guess some of you find it entertaining. Whatever, you do you.

Come on Destroyer_Radford, using the 'T' word is a bit strong.

 

Pope possibly got sunk by a torp and just wanted to unload his saltiness by having a bit of fun with the community.

 

I'm sure it wasn't an attempt to create hostility on the forum. :honoring:

I tried the torp nets, no good rather concealment.

I need these in my life! The idea of carrying a likely very angry red DD around sounds like chat gold.

Well, then there was the time I sank that destroyer using nothing but a thimble, a paper clip, and a rubber band...

 

Oh you've heard about that.  Well have you heard this?

 

Block Quote

 

A Nautical Extravagance

 

I stood one day by the breezy bay a-watching the ships go by,
When a tired tar said, with a shake of his head: "I wisht I could tell a lie!
"I've seen some sights as would jigger yer lights,
And they've jiggered me own, in sooth,
But I ain't wuth a darn at spinnin' a yarn what wanders away from the truth.

 

"We were out in the gig, the Rigagajig, jest a mile and a half to sea,
When Capting Snook, with a troubled look, he came and he says to me:—
"'O Bos'n Smith, make haste forthwith and hemstich the fo'ard sail;
Accordeon pleat the dory sheet, For there's going to be a gale.'

 

"I straightway did as the Capting bid — No sooner the job was through
When the north wind, whoof, bounced over the roof, and, murderin' lights, she blew!
"She blew the tars right off the spars, And the spars right off the mast,
Sails and pails and anchors and nails flew by on the wings o' the blast.

 

"The galley shook as she blew our cook straight out o' the porthole glim,
While pots and pans, kettles and cans went clatterin' after him.
"She blew the fire from our gallant stove and the coal from our gallant bin,
She whistled apace past the Capting's face and blew the beard off his chin!

 

"'O wizzel me dead!' the Capting said (And the words blew out of his mouth);
'We're lost, I fear, if the wind don't veer and blow awhile from the south.'
"And wizzel me dead, no sooner he'd said them words that blew from his mouth,
Than the wind switched round with a hurricane sound and blew straight in from the south.

 

"We opened our eyes with a wild surprise, and never a word to say —
In changin' her tack the wind blew back the things that she'd blew away!
"She blew the tars back onto the spars, and the spars back onto the mast;
Back flew the pails, the sails, and the nails, which into the ship stuck fast.

 

"And 'fore we could look she blew back the cook straight into the galley coop;
Back dropped the pans, kettles, and cans, without even spillin' the soup.
"She blew the fire back into the stove where it burnt in its proper place —
And all of us cheered as she blew the beard back on the Capting's face.

 

"There's more o' me tale," said the sailor hale, "As would jigger yer lights, in sooth,
But I ain't wuth a darn at spinnin' a yarn what wanders away from the truth."

My reaction while reading.

 

 

 

 

well played.


 Kiyoshimo's aircraft carrier rework Kiyoshimo's Torpedo Campaign

I am the Hull of my Torpedo. Steel is my body and Oxygen is my blood. I have caused over one thousand hull breaches. Unknown to flames, nor known to penetrate. I have withstood pain to launch many torpedoes. Yet those guns will never shoot anything.
So, as I pray-- Unlimited Torpedo Works
