Z-46 Quality of Life Turret Change

The Z-46’s second turret (see image in spoiler) oddly doesn’t rotate 360° even though there is clearly more than enough space for it to rotate. It’s not really a big deal, but it would be a nice quality of life change if the turret could rotate 360° which would save players several seconds (which could be ideal during close range fights).

Spoiler

Look at all that space: image.png.61b598a6afc7af7086dc1d98d3729e85.png

Z-46 isn't really my problem now because I have the Z-52, but it's still a nice change for other players (this whole problem was brought up by one of my friends which is why I am making this post).

-170 / +170 degrees

While there is the space to make those turrets 360°, they were not able to make those turns when they were designed. It‘s kind of like the B-turret on Myoukou, Furutaka, Atago/Takao, Nelson and Izumo.

Did I claim WoWs to be a simulator?

No, but there's no use in using real-life justifications for things being the way they are in WoWS.

That's what @HorrorRoach means by "this is not a simulator".   Quoting that it didn't work that way in Real Life is meaningless - this is a video game, and we can have them adjust things as much as desired.  Really the only limit is the model itself, and in the Z-46, there's no reason to not have the B turret rotate 360 other than game balance.  So many other things aren't even close to how they worked in reality that trying to use reality as to justification isn't a defensible argument.

Which is the exact same thing for the B turret in several other ships.

As a general rule, Wargaming tries to stick with historical gun and turret performance unless they feel a ship is really underperforming. Z-46 is most certainly NOT underperforming.

This.  If a balanced, fun game can be made while adhering to history, then it makes this a better game.  Where fun or balance would suffer, historical accuracy is sacrificed.  Since it's a fun ship that isn't suffering, staying true to history is good.
