    The mistakes of RN CAs in game.

    Awesome! Lots of books mistake the China Station scheme with the East Indies one, I wouldn't be too hard on WG for that. Learning stuff like this is the best thing about WOWS, cheers Trainspite

    HMS London, tier 6?

    Hipper isn't a 10,000 ton 'Washington' cruiser. It's the first post treaty heavy cruiser, after Germany denounced the Versailles Treaty. A fully modernised London certainly competes with the last of the Washington cruisers like NO, Algérie, Zara etc. Only Myoko is heavier. It should be tier 7.

    India Commonwealth ?

    There's quite a few unique designs and planned refits that were too expensive. Commonwealth designs could be more specific (Pacific operation only etc) I'd love to see the Australian Battle-class (bigger than fantasy Jutland and used Daring turrets) Cayuga Tribal (Canadian Akizuki but small, fast and manoeuvrable) and 1950s Royalist (one of the best looking ships ever built) Hunts weigh the same as most mid tier DDs (up to 1500 tons full load) and have more firepower than tier 7 DDs. 27-28 knots is fast enough with boost ...But do people really want more oppressive HE smoke spam??? Actually. Type III dropped Y turret for a couple of single launch torpedo tubes to operate in the Med, they would be really fun mid tier! Two mk XI torps that can be fired directly behind every 24s and with enough firepower to sink similar tier DDs? Hmm, that would be fun.

    Indian Navy ships -almost! - confimed

    This is the 1950s. Aircraft and submarines are the biggest threat, no need for lots of guns and torpedoes. Delhi is functionally a real life HuangHe > http://www.navypedia.org/ships/india/in_cr_delhi.htm Mysore is functionally a tier 6 Belfast > http://www.navypedia.org/ships/india/in_cr_mysore.htm

    We’re going to India!

    The Leander class ship in the pic isn't Delhi. Achilles/Delhi only had 3x2 guns + increased AA after the Guadalcanal rebuild. Super sloppy if WG just copy/paste 1943 Ajax (the silver Leander class we have in game) and call it Delhi.

    A Lion Versus Jackals

    Yep that was tragic. Although the KM force that sailed out to meet PQ 17 consisted of Tirpitz, Hipper, Scheer, Lützow, 12 destroyers and lots of U-boats/bombers. A dump load of firepower. Wonder what would've happened if Lützow + 3 destroyers hadn't ran aground and the covering force decided to engage? More interesting than watching one Umikaze flood out Tirptiz

    Akatsuki should swap tiers with Kagero

    Here's what I'd do. Torp strike line (2 launchers, fast/short range torps) Umikaze Momi Wakatake Mutsuki Hatsuharu (Nenohi as built) Shiratsuyu (Shigure, Yūdachi) Kagerō (Asashio, Yukikaze) Yūgumo Super Yūgumo (fantasy, would've used Asashio > Kagerō > Yūgumo before they made Asashio a premium) Torp spam line (3 launchers, long range torps) Split from main line at tier 3 or 5. Isokaze Kawakaze Minekaze Fubuki (Shinonome) Ayanami Akatsuki (Hibiki) Shimakaze (3x4 Fubuki) Super Shimakaze Gunboat (100mm guns) split from tier 8. Akizuki (Harekaze) Kitakaze Harugumo
  8. ^ WG generally don't count guns that can elevate to 50-60 degrees as DP, as they're ineffective agasint dive bombers. Guns that have a 75-85 degree elevation get a AA value.

    Possible Pan-American Destroyer

    Jutland HE shells are 4 seconds faster to 12km compared to Kidd and almost doubles the chance of fire per salvo!! Add the crazy 360 firing angles and it's a different ball game, try em out. Oh yeah, whoops!

    A Perfect Hybrid?

    Best hybrid* silver ships (gold) Tier 6: Icarus (T-61) Tier 7: Gadjah Mada (Leningrad, maybe buffed Sims?) Tier 8: Lightning (Loyang) Tier 9: Fletcher. Tier 10: None since the Yueyang was nerfed, they're all too big. Maybe Gearing? Nah, Fletcher's better with beta manoeuvrability. *Scouting > torp alpha from stealth > pew pew pew at various ranges > gimmicks.

    Possible Pan-American Destroyer

    It's the lengthened 1943 Battle design (HMS Ypres? and HMS Vimiera? would've been the same size had they been competed) Daring's a very different design with alternate boiler/engine rooms (2 smoke stacks) compared to the joined boiler layout started with the J-Class through Battle (single stack) As much as I'd love this at tier 8 to hard counter those dirty premium CVs, it would massively powercreep Kidd in every single area. Tier 9-10 only. Here's some excellent photos of it being built. What a gorgeous ship, love the rounded bridge.

    Possible Pan-American Destroyer

    It's based on a batch 3 Battle. Jutland's better than Daring, even with 17 rpm. So 20 rpm with crazy forward firing arcs is prob a bit much for tier 8. You'd have post WW2 torpedoes with a fast reload too, not a huge disadvantage (see Cossack) Guess everything depends on the gimmick, they could give it 152mm guns like IJN 100mm DDs (1/6 HE pen) to compensate for one set of torps. The captain matches well with Nueve de Julio regardless (IFHE + CE) So it's a no brainer premium if Nueve de Julio sold well.

    Hood AP change. Buff or Nerf?

    Just play 20+ games on Operation Aegis in both Warspite and QE if you want to know the difference, lot's of lovely bot cruisers to farm citadels. 0.015s shell fuses suck balls for 15" BL Mk I guns.

    Jutland's third turret.

    3x2 Battle class destroyers were built for Venezuela. Overkill for tier 9 imo.
