Which considering the guns in question is fair, they weren't exactly the most accurate guns known to man.

Unfortunately, her AA battery looks unhistorical. I don't believe she ever had any AA guns on any of her secondary turrets and I can find no image of any secondary guns in-line on her extreme stern. On any other ship... no big deal... but premium ships are supposed to be as historical as possible. I don't know for sure, though... will look into this further.

 

Edit: existence of AA on forwarding secondary turret confirmed historically accurate... at least for while in Russian service.

Edit again: stern AA mounts confirmed as well... nevermind guys, I'm just crazy. :Smile_smile:

Yeah italians did not kid with lack of AA on their BBs back in the day...I didn't for one second expect it to be inaccurate.

Yup, I will.

Max Dispersion: 138 m, Sigma - 1.5
Kongo: Max Dispersion: 222 m, Sigma - 1.8.
New Mexico, Max Dispersion: 206 m, Sigma - 1.5
Fuso: Max Dispersion: 226m, Sigma - 1.5

I think I can cope with it. * But watch they made a typo and meant 238 m :cap_haloween:

OK. This is awesome. I am excited for the first Regia Marina battleship to arrive in game.

30s reload on a 12.5 inch gun seems weak, though.

When WWII began, the Italians arguably had the best ship-mounted AA guns in the world. The fact that Italy had a rapid-fire 37mm AA gun when the Germans and French were still using hand-loaded models is a testament to this. Still, good quality aside, they did not mount many AA guns per ship. So you win some you lose some.

 

Edit: Also, In my defense, Cesare did not have the AA mounts in question originally, she received them later... 1942 if memory serves.

It is just fine. Dev blog is public information and I have posted multiple times the news from there.

Giulio Cesare: 10 x 12.6 inch guns, 30s reload, 36s traverse.

Kongō: 8 x 14 inch guns, 30s reload, 54.5s traverse.

New York/Texas: 10 x 14 inch guns, 34.2s reload, 60s traverse.

König: 10 x 12 inch guns, 26s reload, 60s traverse.

Oktyabrskaya Revolutsiya: 12 x 12 inch guns, 32s reload, 56.2s traverse.

Iron Duke: 10 x 13.5 inch guns, 30s reload, 72s traverse

 

 

I think Giulio Cesare is just fine.

 

Edit: added Iron Duke as I forgot her.

Didn't realize the turret traverse was so quick. 

 

Perhaps this will be the special trait of the Italian BB tree?
