    PTS 0.10.7

    will we ever get the option to mount regular dumbfire torps? maybe having it to were we have to choose between the different torpedo types like you would guns/torpedo mounts on surfaces ships? like have it that the dumbfire torps act like normal torps in damage/flood values ( maybe slightly to much higher depending on the different sub torps ) but are unable to citadel ships in exchange for more constant damage while the acoustic homing torps still have all their capabilities.

    the mod doesnt seem to work anymore when i put it in the res mods / update number folder since 7.6
  4. There is most definitely unlimited ammo for every ship in this game since alpha. with the exception of CVs before the rework you may be confusing this game for [edited] naval. if ammo was a concern for the ships ingame then the Benham would be out of torpedoes in just 3 full salvos. The only "limit" on ammo is your gun/torpedo mount being destroyed.

    Forrest Sherman-class and USS Hull (DD-945)

    the Damage otuput of the regular forrest would be the same as Fires, same reload just slightly higher cailber the one main Achilles heel of the ship is their speed. but this is a arcade game not a sim we already have ships with VERY over idealized values and stats it wouldn't be a stretch for WG to artificially give it higher the IRL speed.

    Forrest Sherman-class and USS Hull (DD-945)

    it stated in the OP whats the main gun and whats the secondaries for Hull pretty clearly, took alot of thinking for the range of the secondary and the concealment range as giving it something like Georgia/Mass's 7.5 base range on secondaries with more realistic 3 sec reload on those gun not 4 would be broken on a proper build for the ship. Speed they could always artificially buff it as they've done to other ships, and Concealment was counting the main and secondary guns working in unison with said build. As Hull is a very unique ship they could always grant her unique consumables variants like the French Speed boost ( grants 20% engine power boost ) for Hull and Forrest or even main battery reload booster for Hull.
  8. History The 18 Forrest Sherman-class destroyers were the first US post-war destroyers (DD-927 to DD-930 were completed as destroyer leader configurations). Commissioned beginning in 1955, these ships served until the late 1980s. Their weaponry underwent considerable modification during their years of service. Four were converted to guided missile destroyers. This class also served as the basis for the Charles F. Adams-class guided missile destroyer. At the time they entered service, these ships were the largest US destroyers ever built, 418 feet (127 m) long, with a standard displacement of 2,800 tonnes (2,800 long tons). They were originally armed with three 5-inch (127 mm)/54 caliber guns mounted in single turrets (one forward and two aft), 4 3-inch (76 mm)/50 caliber AA guns in twin mounts, as well as hedgehogs and torpedoes for ASW. However, over the years, weaponry was considerably modified. The hedgehogs and 3-inch (76 mm) guns were removed from all ships during the 1960s and 1970s. In addition the fixed torpedo tubes were replaced by two triple 12.75 inches (324 mm) Mark 32 torpedo tube mounts. Eight of the class were modernized to improve their ASW capabilities, becoming the Barry class. These ships were fitted with an eight cell ASROC launcher in place of the No. 2 5-inch (127 mm) gun, and with a variable-depth sonar system. Characteristics Length: 407 ft (124 m) waterline 418 ft (127 m) overall Beam:45 ft (14 m) Draft:22 ft (6.7 m) Propulsion: General Electric steam turbines (Westinghouse in DD-931) 4 × 1,200 psi (8.3 MPa) Foster-Wheeler boilers (Babcock & Wilcox in DD-937, DD-943, DD-944, DD-945, DD-946 and DD-948) 70,000 shp (52 MW), 2 × shafts. Speed:32.5 knots (60.2 km/h; 37.4 mph) Armament 3 × 5 inch (127 mm) 54-calibre Mark 42 single gun mounts 4 × 3 inch (76 mm) 50-caliber Mark 33 guns 2 × Mark 10/11 Hedgehogs 4 × 21 inch (533 mm) torpedo tubes. ( likely ASW torpedoes ) USS Hull History She was commissioned 3 July 1958 and transited the Panama Canal a few months later to begin a long career with the Pacific Fleet.[1] Between April and August 1959 Hull conducted the first of her fifteen deployments to serve with the Seventh Fleet in the Western Pacific. She made three more cruises in that area in 1960, 1961–1962 and 1963-1964. During October and November 1962 the destroyer escorted Pacific-based amphibious forces to the Panama Canal Zone as part of the US Navy's Cuban Missile Crisis operations. Hull's 1965 Seventh Fleet tour was the first of six Vietnam War deployments, during which she fired tens of thousands of five-inch shells in support of forces ashore and helped rescue several downed U.S. aviators. Additionally, Hull served as plane guard for carriers on Yankee Station in the Tonkin Gulf, participated in Operation Sea Dragon operations, and patrolled on search and rescue duties and carried out Naval Gunfire Support missions during the Vietnam War. Hull made her eleventh WestPac cruise in 1973, after the direct U.S. role in the Vietnam War had ended. During her major overhaul in 1974-75, her forward 5 in/54 Mark 42 gun mount was replaced with an 8 in/55 Mark 71 gun mount. This Major Caliber Lightweight Gun ("MCLWG") was the result of a project dating back to the 1960s, when it was realized that heavy gunfire support for amphibious operations would die with the existing force of heavy cruisers unless a big gun could be developed for destroyer-size ships. A prototype gun and mounting had been built and tested ashore during the early 1970s. Hull was its test ship for seagoing trials, after which it was expected that several of these guns would be installed on board destroyers of the new Spruance class. Hull's eight-inch gun began firing tests in April 1975. These lasted into the following year, and were reportedly successful. The ship carried the Mark 71 mounting during her 1976-77 and 1978 deployments to the Western Pacific, and conducted more firing tests during that time. However, the MCLWG project was cancelled in 1978. The prototype gun was removed from Hull during her 1979-80 overhaul and she spent the rest of her days with the three five-inch gun mounts that were typical of her class. Ingame The Forest Sherman's capabilities ingame could be closely relate to that of Friesland's while USS hull's gameplay could possibly be quite unique in that it's 8 inch gun would be the main armament while it's 2 5 inch turrets in the rear of the ship would be counted as secondary mounts. As such it's 5 inch mounts could be adjusted as necessary sense have too main armaments of different calibers,mass,and ROF would be difficult manage in the heat of battle.

I also know of the current over saturation of HE ships currently ingame but i"m not asking for these ships tomorrow or even months from now I'm just putting the possible for these ship on the table.
  9. No they are absolutely not the same guns as the Harekuze their completely different, thats like saying the 120mm M58 on the M103 and the 120mm L44 on the Abrams are the same because of their caliber. the mount ton the Forrest sherman class are Modern guns, precursors to the weapons most destroyers today have.
