She's may only be a Tier 5 ship but I've been after her since I started the game - a 'C' hull Furutaka. 

IJN cruisers have been a particular naval history interest of mine and the Furutaka was the first heavy cruiser design of the IJN. I grinded in battle after battle to go from the 6 single 200mm gun turrets to the 203mm doubles and improved torpedoes. I pan on making her an elite ship and will always keep her in my docks. Now to get the Myoko....

Sometime I hope to get Furutaka.. she's a nice looking ship and 8 inchers at T5 along with awesome torps are nothing to be laughed at. Although the armor...

Congrats. It’s a good, fun ship. 

Make sure you watch Yuro’s YouTube video “How to Furutaka” for both amusement and gameplay insights. 

Enjoy!

says Myoko, shows Haguro XD

 

unways OP, The Furious Taco remains my favorite T5 ship in the game, even though i have a gremlin, i have much more fun in the taco. definitely a keeper if you can get her guns, concealment, and torpedo arcs to work for ya. takes some getting used to but once you get her to click, she will do wonders.

Furutaka has good armor for a tier 5 cruiser. There are plenty of cruisers at tiers 7 and 8 that would be improved with Furutaka armor (except for places where plating thickness is based on tiers).

Thanks for that. Man, that IS some evasive action against those torpedoes!

That's the main thing that caught my attention in this game.  Awesomely rendered historical ships.  It's great to see ships you've read about and seen in newsreels or as museums come to pixel life.

Yeah got to use that ARP Myoko as a Corgi Captain and loved it, looks awesome even if it’s rolled over sinking. The artwork is very well done on that one.

The Furry Taco is a really fun ship to play; I hope you enjoy her as much as I did.

Congrats on getting a ship you have had your eye on, I went through that part of the IJN line what seems like a long time ago, can't say I really remember much about playing her.

Indeed, I still have my Furry Taco, I should take her out sometime. Best of luck on the Myoko though, while I personally love the Aoba and don't see the hate for it, I will warn you that Myoko can be a pain to get used to. I know I'm still working the bugs out and I'm not sure if I ever will.

But, oy! What a nickname the gamers have for her. 

I think of historical ship nicknames like 'Old Ironsides', 'Grand Old Lady', 'Big E', 'Big Mo', 'Sister Sarah'.

What does my ship have? 'Fury Taco'. :Smile_facepalm:

Well that's the difference between historical nicknames ("Lucky A", "Lady Akatsuki", "The Big Stick") and gaming ones ("Sharkbait", "Des Memes", "Fat Freddy"). Actually a friend of mine refers to her as "Furious Taco" if you prefer.

Until you have to deal with its atrocious firing angles ... 

Thats the one thing that prevents me from playing this ship, you have to sail almost perfectly broadside if you want to use all your guns.
