    Bayern during WWI

    I was always under the impression that the British Battlecruisers had flaws in their design.

    Bayern during WWI

    I would definitely look at if I ever get a chance, WWI Naval Battles were far more interesting than those of WWII. Plus, I have an interest in WWI Era German Battleships. Even their battlecruisers, plus the stuff they never got to build like the Makensen, Ersatz Yorck and L 20/30 Classes.

    So it comes down to skill, tactics, and luck basically. You can have the best ships, but if you aren't prepared or don't plan properly, having the best ships doesn't count.

    Bayern during WWI

    Bayern had the benefit of Turtleback Armour (Like most German Battleships of that era did), so I agree on the survivability of the ship. But buy 'n large, most German Capital ships of that era, including the battlecruisers, were well protected. Seydlitz and Derflinnger (Forgive my spelling) took a nasty beating at Jutland and still managed to make it home. The Queen Mary and the Invincible however, we all know their story. My theory would be that if Bayern and her sisters were completed in time for Jutland, and been positioned correctly as Jellicoe had done with his ships; I'm sure Jutland would have ended differently.

    Bayern during WWI

    I'm a curious what if sort of person; and I wonder if Bayern and her sisters were completed in time for Jutland, would they have made any difference? The most powerful battleships of that period AFAIK were the Royal Navy's Queen Elizabeth class, and I believe that the Bayern was a direct rival to the Queen Elizabeth, maybe even better than the Queen Elizabeth.

    West Virgina 1944

    As much as I'd like to see a 1944 Tennessee/California and West Virginia, as the others have stated, it will not balance correctly. The superstructure might be modern and more powerful in terms of secondaries and AA, but the armour remains the same, clearly that would lead to serious problems.

    HMS Vanguard should never have been completed.

    I can imagine....

    HMS Vanguard should never have been completed.

    Would auto loaders work on guns that size?

    HMS Vanguard should never have been completed.

    Railgun development has been discontinued I believe.

    HMS Vanguard should never have been completed.

    Lots of people were salty over Vanguard been broken up for scrap despite the many calls to keep her as a museum. To be honest, Vanguard should never have gotten to that point. She should have been a paper ship. And I agree with the Jean Bart; she was finished in the early 50's if I am not mistaken, a bit of a waste if you ask me.

    Transfer ships from accounts

    I haven't played my in yonkers, that is why I wanted to transfer the ships to my main account so I can abandon it altogether.

    Transfer ships from accounts

    Is there a way to transfer ships from an alt account to my main account? I want to move some ships from my alt account to my main account.
  13. I know I'm going to get a ton of flak for this, but IMHO, HMS Vanguard should never have been completed. The design was completely obsolete especially with the emergence of aircraft carriers. She should have been broken up on the builders way.

    Excellent Torpedoes on Musashi

    That could very well be, seeing that the shell went deep enough underwater. I haven't got any torpedo baring Battleships due to lack of funds (Though I would love Mutsu just to see if the torpedoes work or not) but I think it would be extremely rare for Mutsu, Kii, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst or even Gneisenau to torpedo an aircraft carrier.

    .....which doesn't make sense. I wonder if it's just a weird glitch.
