Mini-mato; just the right size for a backyard invasion!

Coming to a pint-sized wanna-be dictator near you!

tosa, that 13 thing, or any one of those other class designs that didn't get off the ground between tosa class and yammy

Arguably, the Kii could have been a tier 9 ship, since it did come after the Amagi and the Tosa.  Another one would be a design referred to as the number 13, which was armed with 457 mm guns in 4 twin turrets.

Edit: Added the Tosa link for completeness.

They could put a piece of wood with a paper sail and it would be better than Izumo!

Has anyone seen where WG could have possibly gotten the idea for Izumo in the first place, the only thing that came up for me was a new helicopter carrier.

The Izumo was one of the proposed ideas for a Yamato style ship

Most likely these designs were used.

As for what could be a better tier 9 then Izumo, I'd say Kii if she wasn't becoming a premium, but with a 'what if' 30s refit like what happened to all the other IJN BBs so that she would be viable for tier 9.

Or perhaps this would be a more viable option

Basically a mini yammie with 410mms, name it something like Osumi or Echizen and there you go.

And yet they still managed to get the turret layout wrong.:Smile_facepalm:

I've read on the forums the Izumo is a paywall... so I suspect whatever could/would replace the Izumo, it unfortunately, would be just as dismal as the Izumo. 

 

I vote the Izumo the worst ship in the game when it comes to playing for fun and enjoyment. I've abandoned it twice now. Egads it stinks to high heaven.

A "Yamato Prototype" with 3x3 406mm guns in a standard 2/1 fore/aft layout.

 

I would be happy with a Minimato as described with 9 of the Nagato/Amagi/Kii/Tosa 406mm guns, even with 1 gun short.  A better layout with more armor and definitely more AA.
