We have a t9 yamato class so we can have a t8 Iowa class.

Stats

-69000hp

-21km range

-30 second reload

-a hull Iowa level aa

-30 second rudder shift

-33 knot top speed

-45 second gun traverse

-2.0 sigma, no accuracy mod (same accuracy as NC)

-UnbuffedIowa citadel. Comes 20 feet out of the water.

 

I think it would be a pretty decent t8, but would have awful armor to make up for better guns and top speed

I like the Iowa a lot... but this is a bad idea. Just like a tier 9 Yamato was a bad idea.

Honestly? Tier VIII is more important than Tier IX. WG’s Musashi shenanigans work at Tier IX because that will never be used for Ranked (or any other mode of renown). At Tier VIII it would be a disaster to release a slightly downgraded version of a higher tier ship. So no, not going to hapen, and not the same animal as Musashi.

Do we really need a third Iowa as a third American tier VIII BB premium?

I'm sad now. This was an actual serious post. No, an a hull Iowa with worse accuracy, a citadel above water and 33 knot top speed would not destroy t8

That undergunned DD that is only useful for fighting other DDs? That’s your trump card?

We have the  NC as the tech tree ship; the Alabama as one T8 premium & the Mass. as #2 premium at T8. So a 3rd T8? Not going to happen. Especially with the upcoming USN cruiser line split.  I would rather they split off an alternate USN BB/BC line and put the Alaska in at around T7. They can mess around with some of the alternate North Carolina and other designs that were never made due to the various naval arms limitation treaties. Imagine a fast(28knot) BB with 12x 14" guns & good AA. Or a slightly lighter Iowa,  NC or SoDak. with 12 of Alaska's 12" guns.(can you say cruiser murderer?)

Mass isn't in the game yet. And I think we need to have every fast usn bb in the game bc despite you thinking we don't need them, people will buy them just for the name of the ship.

I'd have to throw Kii out there.

From what I understand, if Kii were a tech tree ship in a second BB/FBB line for the IJN, she'd be a proper T9 after Tosa at T8(unless the second line would move Amagi over and slot Tosa after Nagato). What we have right now is essentially like every other IJN premium BB, a stock hull, down-tiered ship.

It’s tier 9 at tier 8 and it works. Drops microphone, walks away.

That is true. I didn't think about collectors and that is certainly a consideration. In that case; I shall await USS Washington and Adm. Willis A. Lee. We'll see which one they offer up next. Care to guess?

That means even with SGM2 it would have a 24 second rudder shift. You would have to start your turn in the game you are currently playing to actually begin turning in the next one.

no...No...NO...NO! :Smile_amazed:

That might be true to a degree, but then there's the saturation affect.

We're talking about variants of ships that will just end up not selling well outside of the NA, especially if they're just clones. If they're not, WG's gotta spend time balancing them instead of other premiums - and at diminishing return as people see the same basic ship over and over again.

 

Outside of NA they'll rapidly lose draw because most people just don't care about all the Fast BBs. Washington, South Dakota, and Massachusetts all have big names for their surface actions, but your Indiana's of the world are forgotten. You'd have an easier time selling Prince of Wales as a third KGV, or more Kongo's like Hiei and Kirishima - both veterans of famous battles. Another QE like Valiant, etc.

No, we need Washington.  Or Kentucky in her gulf war guise with 4 5" turrets per side for the outer AA aura and Hood style close in CIWS for the Phalanx
