    ST. 0.10.6, NEW SHIPS

    I really would like to hear why the Developers chose to give the Constellation obsolete weaker guns - than the guns they actually produced for her? (which by the way, opens a can of worms for the armament for the entire Kansas - Minnesota line - which are in reality the original South Dakota class of 1920 ...which were also armed with the above 16"/50 Mk2). Taking the new weapons to sea was the reason the Lexington Class Battlecruisers were made (even though they emerged as CV's). This product as is - really discourages me from spending the money to buy her...

    USS Constellation In Armoury

    This is straying off (my) topic a bit, but the cage masts were removed in wartime refits primarily because of opening up fields of fire for AA weapons. The same evolutionary process that saw superstructures and funnels reduced in refits and new wartime construction such as the California and West Virginia BBs, and the Brooklyn and Astoria class rebuilds of 1943/44, and the late war Fargo and Oregon City classes.

    ST. 0.10.6, NEW SHIPS

    [Re-Posted here from the general discussion] I have one question about WG's new Constellation - Why doesn't it have it's 16"/50 (40.6 cm) Mark 2 guns? That's what the ship was designed for, and the Navy actually produced over 50 of those weapons even though the Lex and contemporary South Dakota's (BB) were cancelled by treaty. Those guns had a muzzle velocity of 853 mps, and they existed...but they give her old 16" 45's for the old Colorado instead. It would be the same thing if they arbitrarily decided to give the Bismarck/Tirpitz Bayern's old 15" guns (well, it's a German 15" gun...who cares?). I am disappointed.

    Music in Port

    Is there a way to keep specific port music playing... after a battle?
