US Navy gun blast bags

First off for the people who don't know what I'm talking about.  Blast bags or "bloomers" are the piece of fabric, usually a thick canvas or rubber, that is fitted around the gun barrel where it meets the turret case mate.  These were most recently color corrected on Iowa, Missouri, and Montana.  Not only is the color still not dark enough, but other ships still need the same treatment.  The jackets on the New Orleans should be black as well.  Additionally, the ones that are in game, including the other high tier US cruisers, still aren't dark enough.  You have the right color for the French ships but the US should have the same dark black color.  The US ones currently just use a dull gray.

 

They should be BLACK, this includes North Carolina, Iowa, Missouri, Montana, Cleveland, New Orleans, Baltimore, Des Moines, Benson, Sims, Fletcher, and Gearing.  Same with the famous 5 inch dual purpose mounts.  Don't stop now!  You clearly pay attention because people have been asking for this for a while now and you changed it but you should have kept going!  You had the right idea, guys.

Keep in mind that there's probably 1 guy at WG who has this to change, in addition to whatever else he has to work on like all these antialiasing corrections they keep doing.  It could take awhile to get them all done.

You did not know they were going for the "aged" look, bleached out in the sun?

Still doesn't explain why the French get nice dark ones.

Oh by all means, they should finish updating the rigging and details on all the ships first.  Probably the smallest thing to ever complain over, just trying to bring it to attention.  I hope that ONE gut gets a raise.

Because the French ships never go out - the USN ships are in action all the time = more wear and gray blastbags.
