Tpaktop2_1 posted a topic in Japanese BattleshipsI found this article in reading the news https://nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/how-imperial-japan-almost-bankrupted-itself-building-battleships-fight-america-79871 The article talks about the arms race between USA and Japan similar to the one in the past between USSR and USA. Nothing is quoted such as production figures or economics for comparison. The author states that Japan could never keep up with the USA advancements. I suppose there are other sources that goes into more detail. However it does bring to mind in imagining if the A-150 with 20 inch guns was in WoWS today
Lampshade_M1A2 posted a topic in General Game DiscussionVery interesting article WG. Thank you for that. I have a few questions though. Where did you get the information about the ship's projected performance characteristics being too optimistic? I'd be interested to know in the USN's later analysis of this design. I hadn't read about the resulting reduction in belt armor from 7.5" to 6" before. Also you make a pretty big deal about the quad torpedo launchers and the torpedo reloads facilitated for them. So why wasn't this included on the Buffalo in the game? Not that I particularly miss the lousy USN torpedoes, I'd have personally preferred the extra armor instead. That chart of new US cruiser designs 1940-41 shows two designs, Scheme 1 and 2, for what look to be new light cruisers. Yet the main armament of Scheme 2 isn't identified. What was it?
