Hopefully that embeds right. Got it working.

 

Initial reaction:

 

Not impressed, not impressed at all. 8 guns just is not going to work IMO. Sure i bet they have insane pen and the alpha's not bad, but still only 8 guns, there's a reason you don;t see many 457mm armed Conquerors around.

 

The rest looks ok to me.

 

 

EDIT: And i somehow missed a thread on this allready. I'm blinds. Mods could you please delete?

To say nothing of a bad layout. For a T10 to have only 2 turrets is bad enough, but to not even give it both up front makes it by default 50% less effective.

Odd, they put the turrets in the front.  How will it shoot back while running away?

I thought for sure one of the bb's would have all turrets in the back:Smile_hiding:

 

You know, this joke was old six months ago.

Yeah but Bismark proved to have troll armour and amazing secondaries, nothing where seeing with the prior ships comes anywhere close to those kinds of advantages. I',m not saying you couldn't make an 8 gun T10 work without Yamato tyle overmatch, but nothing i'm seeing at first blush suggests thats true here.

I'd prefer to have more pre - WW2 & WW2 era ships. I'm not interested, at all, in post WW2 designs.

There are no WW2/Pre-WW2 ships on par with Yamato though. And precious few on par with Iowa. Thats just the way it is.

Two turrets?  Yeah, four guns each, but two turrets?

 

Main battery protection will definitely be a required module on this boat.

I'd rather have a slightly gimped T10 than more powercreep. It'll be fine.

 

Agree 100%.

Yeah.

And if the the forward turret gets destroyed the player will have to kite away or reverse in.

14500 AP round, 26.1 km range, 2.0 sigma, looks like a weak Yamato sniper clone.  Yamato has 6 guns facing forward  to bow tank, this has only 4 @ 431mm ( 16.9").  It must have reload accelerator as one of the modules, to make it effective as a sniper I hope.

Nah, it stopped being funny to certain people when the PC police arrived on the scene.  (And I don't mean personal computer.)
