  1. Not really thrilled by pan Asian ships, though it does add 2 more British Destroyers, to the 2 that were available with the Dunkirk operation, that gives 4 levels for the British. Imo tier 3,4, 5, 7. make torpedo depth adjustment part of the game for all DD's tier 5 and above. game
  2. The Pigeon's Mess

    I will agree with this idea wholeheartedly.
  3. The problem is that the developers are facing a reality that the Germans never had a decent fighter that could be developed or modified for carrier use.. to develop that fighter the developers almost need to an ASB intervention. THe only option would be to buy a modified fighter from the Italians. Several of theirs could work.
  4. Agincourt, unique design.. something different.
  5. USS Houston

    Houston never received any 40 mm Bofors, and in fact, during it's late 1939's refit it lost it's torpedos in order to add, the after pair of 28 mm/1.1" AA mounts. That said YES! also the "Galloping Ghost of the Java Coast" deserves all the AA plus torpedos, as well as the high rate of fire she was claimed to produce, 4 rounds + a minute., and spotters rather than fighters.
  6. Sounds like a pretty decent and fair walkback on the position with iChase; and a reasonable attempt at a fix of a ship release that went bad.. I think cooler heads prevailed all around. As releases continue I hope WG continues this level of contact and humility when things take a bad turn..
  7. Agree in the most part on U.S. CA'S Pensacola 6, Northampton 7, with Houston Premium,( A hull on Northamptons should have the 2 x 3 torpedo tubes) New Orleans 8, with Wichita as Premium, Baltimore 9, Des Moines /Oregon City at 10.. Indianapolis as Premium. cruiser. CL, Omaha 5, Cleveland 6, Brooklyn 7 with Helena Premium, Fargo 8, Worchester 9, or insert Atlanta at 6 or as a Premium at 6.
  8. Historically this ship was a tier 5 time frame ship,, heavy guns, weak AA, weak secondaries, virtually no armor. in the real world thisships advantage, was the range of it's guns and a good rate of fire, weakness is armor barely better than the Omaha's and historically weaker in torpedo protection than following classes. make it a tier 5.
  9. As a Class of American Cruiser I would love to see the Heavy Cruiser class the Northampton's.Tier 4 or 5, Hull A as built 3 x 3 8" guns, 4 x 1 x 5"/25 cal AA/secondary 2 x 4 1.1" AA, 6 x 1 x.50 cam MG,and the main class of CA's to mount torpedo tubes, 2 x 3 x21" torpedo tubes.; Hull B (1937-38 refits) Hull B 3 x3 x 8", 8 x 1 5"/25 cal AA/Secondary, 4 x 4 x 1.1" AA, 6 x 20mm AA.: Hull C 1943 +; 3 x 3x 8", 8 x 1 x 5" 25 cal AA/Secondary, 6 x 4 40mmAA, 8-10 x 1 20mm. You even have a premium for this class the USS Houston of Asiatic Fleet fame. Configure as Hull B but give the ROF as though -75% of hit points. Just my idea.. Thanks for listening.
  10. What about the USN's premier Battleship Gunnery officer Admiral Willis A Lee.
  11. I love the game but as a Naval history fan get frustrated with certain things. Especially the Germans who had the ability to regularly knock out their own fire control at longer ranges when firing abeam or on a rear angle Also their destroyers when running at full speed (Boost) could frequently have an engine failure. .I don't know if this has been suggested, but add the USN Northampton class Cruiser, with the initial build ca 1936, prior to the removal of their triple torpedo tubes, while that only gives them the 5"/25cal and 2 x4 1.1" AA guns. the upgrade to 4x4 or 6 x4 1'1"'s or 40 mm batteries, requires that the torpedoes are removed as in the real world because of weight. This would allow the addition of a USS Houston ( the Galloping Ghost of the Java coast) as a premium.
