About WG's announcement on catapult turrets, will the Fuso get one as well?

I was doing a search on the Wikipedia on the Fuso class BB until I came across a image where the Fuso post modernization did have one as well on turret number 3:

A spotter would put Fuso close to Yamato range at T6 (that might be an exaggeration) - without the accuracy. Sure, why not, but I'm not sure it does much anything constructive.

It does allow you to aim over islands and spots torps for you. Also, a fighter plane is quite useful.

Fuso certainly doesn't need a range increase. I'd accept a fighter on it, but a spotter wouldn't really be very balanced on what's already an extremely long range, accurate ship.

Both true- I'm an idiot sometimes most of the time.

Unless they nerf the base range without the plane

I remember having spotter plane back when stock Fusou was a pain to grind. Hell I even landed 3 citadel + some hit on a CV and let him live with 100hp from max range. Yeah that sucks.

 

Anyway maybe WG removed them I don't know but she used to have spotter planes

Nelson needs one for historical accuracy

Guys, Fuso still has a spotter plane right now.

The difference we're talking about is where the catapult is going to go. That's all.

Too late for that..

Fuso's forward pointing 3rd turret was specifically designed that way for the catapult spotter

Which, as it turned out, wasn't necessary, because the aft deck had enough room.

I would be willing to bet that all those new catapult planes are fighters.

Since the high tier AA became too effective the CV skippers have all moved to mid-low tiers where most of the ships have abysmal, or virtually zero AA. 

Two CV games are the norm at tier VI. The addition of fighters is sorely needed.

Wait, what announcement? I haven't seen any announcement regarding this...? I'd like to read this, cause that would mean Arizona getting her historical number 3 turret catapult (which, I'm honestly not sure why WG hasn't added a simple cosmetic catapult to the model... its not like that would change the stats of the ship or anything...)

Just giving Fuso a catapult fighter, like Lert said, is a better idea.

JFC, it's like you people don't actually play the game or something.

FUSO HAS A SPOTTER PLANE RIGHT NOW, AND HAS ALWAYS HAD A SPOTTER PLANE.

Jesus Francis Chrysler, okay. I haven't had or played Fuso for nearly 2 years but I do remember that Fuso has the best base main armament range of all T6 BBs in the game by far -- even without the plane. I also didn't start this topic.

I know this stuff is extremely important to you but how about you slow your roll, CPT. CAPLOCK?

I wouldn't complain if they moved the catapult, but I don't actually see why it'd be necessary since she already has her fantail catapult.

 

Maybe have it in different positions between the A and B hulls for variety's sake.

Apparently somebody wants a modeling change but, since this is a thing now, why does Fuso, with the best T6 BB base range in the game by far, need more range from a catapult spotter at all?  It doesn't.

She already has a catapult spotter so asking why she needs it added is kinda silly.

 

This thread is about a model change. Not the idea of adding something to a ship that already has that something.
