Greetings all,

 

 Noticed this little guy tonight. Upon closer inspection, she is the S.S. Earl Sigurd, a 221t cargo steamer. She was powered by a  60hp (no, that's not a typo) Triple Expansion 3 cylinder steam engine that afforded her a top speed of 10kn, she was built in 1930 and served until 1969, and during WWII she was armed with a single 20mm Oerlikon AA gun for defense.

 

She is the small black ship on the starboard side of the Ryujo

And it looks like you entered the match with a stock ship, not even wearing a dress. Cover yourself, children are watching.

​Stock Ryujo is best Ryujo, stock Ryujo is historical Ryujo. :smart_fish:

That is the case for several ships, like most german Battleships.

Did the König receive 105mm guns? I thought that Kaiser and König were also modified.

Neither Kaiser nor Konig's stock hulls are historical, though, Konig's is close. Interestingly enough, the Konig is the only historical German battleship in the game that does not have a historically accurate representative of its class through a hull option or premium sister.

Well, that changes things I guess. If we ignore the main guns on Gneisenau she is also historical on the A-Hull

 

EDIT: I bet you will prove me wrong on this, you are that type of guy who finds the smallest of difference at a detail. Not meant in a bad way though :P

A hull still has the lengthened bow, which she never received IRL.

I knew it. I knew it. I knew it. Can't you just let me say something without finding the slightest of errors?

 

Just kidding, good catch.

Do you only focus on the exterior of warships or also on other aspects?

Hmmm, primarily exterior. What other aspects were you referring to? I mean, I know the general statistics for most warships as well (number of guns, gun size, speed, length etc..)

For example the ways the FCS works on different ships, electronics, optical systems, radar and it's efficiency, those technichal details. Or gun performance.

Kind of reminds me of the cargo ship in 'Mister Roberts.'

 

Similar lines, but the bow is too short.  Ship used in Mister Roberts was a Camano Class, the USS Hewell.

I still want that ship in game somewhere with a random Palm tree flying off the side from time to time
