I like another poster would like to know why you can't see the ships stats and mods till after you've bought it?

I'm not sure what you mean. You can see all the relevant stats before buying.

Maybe talking about Premium Shop ships?

If so go to the Warships Wiki, they usually have the info on all ships (or have patience and wait for one of the many reviews!).

This. Reviews will usually be up before or the moment a premium ship releases. I personally recommend nozoupforyou, flamu and littlewhitemouse. Zoup and Flamu do youtube, Mouse does written reviews.

The only thing they don't show is the Upgrades and consumables. They show the modules and stats tough.

The question is...why not? There's no logical reason we shouldn't be able to see consumables and upgrades on the next ship, but you're forced to buy it to find out?

Certainly no technical reason, so it comes back down to lazy coding and a poor UI, that they seem disinterested in fixing.

That could very well be true. I just never pondered why, It is a bit inconvenient not being able to see them. I kind of wondered why they wouldn't show them until you buy the ship. It's not like you can't go to the WIKI and find out anyway.

No I was only able to see some of what the ships I bought had especially the mod's only 'after' I bought them and no I was not talking about the premium ships,    Not in my budget tho I have seen and read with great enjoyment LittleWhiteMouse's reviews She or He does a great job discussing those items,   Here's  an example  see at the bottom?

Also an Omaha while not having the speed power or range and mod's of a Cleveland or Pensacola can if your adept and accurate enuff  to make use of the speed of it's gun's you can out shoot them, (to all intents and purposes it's a more modern faster version of the U.S St Louis)    However you wouldn't know that until you had all three of them,   And the same is true of the S.Carolina and the Wyoming,  I   have no knowledge of the New York or anything past that however from what I've seen and heard the N.Carolina is the 1st fairly decent U.S.  BB

Ah. You're talking about CONSUMABLES.
There's a detailed section of the wiki here. CLICK ME. Take the time to read it and your question will be answered.

My Opinion

I think what OP is referring to is that when you try to see which modifications are available for a ship which you have not previously purchased the game displays a message that you need to unlock and buy the ship before finding out these things.

He thinks that sucks; and really so do I; it's very frustrating to players on a credit budget who are trying to get the most for their limited number of credits. Researching a ship should be wide open whether you've purchased it or not.

Just My Opinion.

Really? ANOTHER new avatar? You're like a debutante with a closet full of new clothes.

(I don't know where that photo is from but it looks like the guy who played the monster in Young Frankenstien, Peter somebody-or-other; good pic!)
