Greetings all,

 

   Massachusetts is now up on GM3D so I figured we'd tour the ships and look at what is different. I won't be discussing statistics in this thread in an attempt to not get banned. ;)

 

 

Massachusets

Well, hope this was useful to you.

 

P.S. If you're one of those people who won't own a Konigsberg or a Kaiser/Konig Albert because they are asymmetrical then you should probably stick to Alabama and steer clear of Massachusets.

Zaaareeebaas!

 

Nice images. They look more dissimilar than KGV v. Monarch!

Considering they could have chosen to copy and paste the ships from one to the other, the amount of unique detail on them is impressive.

Nice. I didn't even know they were bringing the Mass into the game.  Is that going to be part of a tree spinoff of US BBs?

Probably not. Will likely be a premium ship of sorts.

You are fine to talk about her stats, they were revealed on the Dev blog with her reveal anyways.

Awesome, thanks for posting those up. Looks like Big Mamie will pack a mean mid range AA punch. Really impressed to see the attention to detail on such subtle variations. 

Now, if they would just give the permafloges the same attention. Alabama and Mass had some good ones IRL and could really help to further differentiate and "sell" them on the differences.

I kind of wish they would give Massachusetts her 1945 AA suite with 18 quad Bofors. And one of these:

She's missing two quad Bofors on her bow right in front of the #1 turret. However they were quickly removed after WW2 during an overhaul that also saw her SK radar replaced by the SK-2, so by 1946 this would be accurate.

I wish they would give her the Measure 12 she wore at Casablanca. It's not accurate for 1946, but it adds a visual distinction between them.

I for one would love if they each got an alternate camo option. As much as I think Measure 22 looks amazing on any USN ship, giving other premiums the same variety option that Missouri already has would be nice. Like @Big_Spud said, Big Mamie should get an option for her Measure 12 from 1942. While Alabama could get an option for Measure 12 (modified).
