    FDR or Shikishima?

    So, as someone who has been a BB main since the beginning and also despises CVs, especially in competitive settings, I really can't believe that I'm contemplating this choice either. However, I'm mainly looking objectively at their potential in CB and ranked battles. When it comes to competitive modes, I'm more of a play to win than a play to have fun type of player. That being the case I tend to go for ships that trend well in those modes rather than what my "personal taste" wants. Also, I'm not a great CV player, however, I'm attracted to FDR because it seems to require very minimal skill and knowledge. I base this theory off my observations of it in game, as well as knowing that it has a massive number of planes in each squad and the HP of those planes is insane. Basically it appears that FDR can penetrate any AA bubble no matter how strong and get of 2 or more drops before having to break off due to the sheer number of planes and the HP they have compared to other T10 CVs. A clanmate of mine ran her and had great success at affecting the outcome of the game despite having little CV experience. It seems FDR's ability to affect the tide of the battle is borderline OP, especially in CBs and ranked, which is why I'm considering her over Shikishima. Now, as a BB main, Shikishima is more attractive to me on the surface by a longshot. However, from an objective standpoint, I really don't see her having nearly as much of a direct impact on the game compared to the FDR. I would really love having a Yamato hull with those huge guns, good aa, and secondaries. However, outside of those 3 things, she really doesn't have anything else going for her that Yamato doesn't already cover. Also, Yamato is one of my lesser liked t10 BBs, as I really don't like her lack of versatility compared to other t10 BBs. Since Shikishima plays more or less the same as Yamato, I really don't see myself enjoying her as much as I've enjoyed other T10 premium BBs like Bourgogne, Ohio, and Thunderer. In closing, my natural instinct as a BB main is to get Shikishima. She is within the class I play the most and perform the best in. Also, even though she will likely never be among my favorite BBs to play, I know I could still do well with her and not feel that I made a bad steel purchase. On the other hand, if FDR is really as game breaking and noob friendly as she appears to be, I think she could serve me well in competitive settings. As I said her planes appear to be literal juggernauts that charge in and do massive damage no matter how intense the AA fire and typically have plenty of HP to spare for a follow up attack or 2 before having to break off. Which one would you all get?
  2. as title says, i can only have one. help me decide :3
  3. I am trying to figure out how to get my hands on the Shikishima before it comes out. I NEED THIS SHIP so positive answers only.
  4. There has been a tradition of speculation among naval amateurs that Design A-150, if built, would feature white (or light grey) main gun turrets. The main gun turrets in naval ships are sometimes painted in specific colors to help identify the ship. Yamato and Musashi's turrets are historically painted in body color. Design A-150 could have some the turrets painted in a different color to reduce the cases where a friendly naval operator has mistaken the Design A-150 for Yamato or Musashi. I also feel the white turrets make the gigantic 20-inch guns look more badass. (Above: a Design A-150 scale model, with white turrets.) (Above: old game Navyfield 2, where A-150 also has white turrets.)
