    Premium Ship Review - Yukon

    I think this boils down to WG Global not listening to ANYTHING WG-NA says or wants. An Austin-St. Pete hotline is needed. A 2-way one. My sympathies to Mouse and Chobittsu for their months of hard work that led to pretty much nothing.

    Premium Ship Review - Agincourt

    WG later noted their error in their comments on the video, on their YouTube channel. They meant secondaries I think.

    Premium Ship Review - Champagne

    With only six 16-inch guns, relatively light protection and 34 kts speed (plus engine boost), I think I can call this a battlecruiser. And I don't use that name lightly.

    Godzilla and Kong

    It seems that you can only have Kong or Godzilla on your ship in port if you are using the custom camo. I had Kong drop from a crate, no camo, and all I get is the voice and a 10-pt skipper. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Essex-class carrier return when?

    Lexington actually received a brief refit at Pearl shortly before Coral Sea. The 8-inch guns were removed and replaced with twelve 1.1-inch quad mounts, due to lack of 5-inch mounts or perhaps the time to install them. All eight 8-inch twin turrets from Sara and Lex were reused as Army coast artillery on Oahu. References on request.

    Premium Ship Review #129 - Benham

    While researching the Benham class in the course of spiffing up the Wikipedia article, somewhere (Friedman?) I came across an interesting possible real-life exploit. Not one that can be used in WoWS, unfortunately. The idea is to make use of the Mark 15 torpedo's after-launch course angles to launch all 16 torps, angled to form two parallel 8-torp spreads heading in the general direction the DD was pointed when launched. Just a fun idea for those who want to have fun with the Kitakami when it's available.

    Mouse's Quick Summary of Premium Battleships

    @LWM: With your skill at analyzing WoWS ships, have you considered analyzing real ships? Norman Friedman (of U.S. Battleships: An Illustrated Design History and many other books) is getting on in years and somebody's got to take over.
