    Top Gun: Maverick trailer

    looking at the trailer, quite a bit of the flying was CGI. Add in the flying F-14 at the end.......

    USS Texas - leaking cuts tour hours

    remember, at one time several compartments were flooded and only at that 80s drydocking were they completely de-watered. While they may have been cleaned and repaired, its only as strong as the material they are welded or riveted to. While some interior walls may still be strong, what about the hull sections they are attached to? the frames? The ship has basically been out of service for 70+ years. What do the door seals look like? Are they even there? What about the wiring and pipes? This could possibly become something along the lines of the IJN Shinano.

    Top Gun: Maverick trailer

    i have mixed feelings about this..... Sometimes a sequel is just not needed. That, and the last batch of Tom Cruise movies have not impressed me at all.......

    The Iowa Diet Plan

    According to a book on read on the Iowas, when they transited the Canal, they would try to protect the sides with mattresses and such. Didn't always work as some have hull dents from the canal sides and some concrete was broken off from the canals.

    IRL Tirpitz vs Post War Jean Bart

    Technically, they are both late 30s, early 40s designed BBs. Jean Bart did not get into service until the 50s due to WW2 and getting shelled by the Massachusetts. All the 1950s did was add improved AA and secondary guns, as well as put in 1950s radar. The structure of the Jean Bart, her design and armor, is still 1940s. Another thing to factor in: South Dakota, a modern US BB, basically got knocked out of Guadalcanal when her electronics were taken out. How good were the electronics on the Jean Bart? Could they withstand the ships own guns blasting away in a combat situation?

    USS Texas - leaking cuts tour hours

    The last time she was moved towards a drydock, she began to take on water and was actually in danger of being too low in the water to make it into the drydock. Hopefully lessons have been learned and extra pumps are on hand. If they could also make the ships own pumps functional that might be an additional help.

    No damage???

    It could be 2 things, but that also depends on what you were shooting at. Yes, it could have been damage saturation. The other possibility is the torpedo bulge. In a recent update, you can now hit the torpedo bulge and get no damage from a penetration. Alot of the BBs have a torpedo bulge.

    No damage???

    True, but I think its situational. Where able, yes, a ship will pull itself out of action and fall back. But not all ships can pull back. Bismarck, Yamato, Johnston, Samuel B Roberts, there are many instances of ships that took severe damage and simply could not get away and fought to destruction. In this game, due to map size and the borders, a ship simply cannot leave the engagement area. They can hide to a point, but they can be basically caught in a spot with nowhere to turn.

    More and More Passive...

    my problem in the past is that I have been too aggressive, and as a result, got deleted early. I have learned over time when to be aggressive and when to play more passive. Now I might still get caught out on occasion and get deleted quickly, but it is not as frequent. There are alot of newer ships out there, and skilled captains, that can punish a ship caught out of position. This is more so in the higher tiers. They have also introduced a couple of ships (Azuma, Yoshino) who are long range kiters, and are too soft to get in close. Now adding in the CV issues, you no longer have that long reach of a CV to help spot out the enemy teams. You are now relying only on DDs for spotting, who may or may not push in depending on the support behind them.
  11. As a Corgi, I was a dog with alot of bite and a great Win Rate. the access to ships I don't have was also pretty informative and gave me a few goals to unlock.
