...hit Stalingrad and Kronstadt? since well they can hit Scharnhorst, which is considered a battleship and battle cruiser

Quote

Scharnhorst was a German capital ship, alternatively described as a battleship and battlecruiser, of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine.

and both of those are dwarfed larger and go as deep in the water, so wouldnt it make sense those DWs hit them too

Since the torpedoes hit by arbitrary overhead icon and not draft, no. No they won't.

It is why the Dev's probably made the Stalingrad and Kronstadt "Cruisers" to protect them against deep water torps. I guarantee if the Alaska comes into the game she will be listed as a battleship.

This reeks of when they nerfed AFT and BFT such that it didn't work on the St Louis... and then promptly introduced the AFT/BFT compatible Bogatyr :Smile_sceptic:

LOL The Russian ego is very fragile so when they saw the statistical breakdown and realized the Hindenberg is a better ship the collectively had kittens and had to design a new ship to be the best t-10 cruiser. They did it with destroyers, the Khab is a light cruiser but they made her a destroyer....the biggest, strongest destroyer in the game.

The boss at WG told the devs they had to get more people to play cruisers since the BB overpopulation problem was getting out of hand.  This is their solution, make Russian bias BBs and call them cruisers.:Smile_facepalm:

She may be the biggest and strongest DD in the game... but she is not the easiest one to play.

Someone who doesn't know what they're doing in Khab is not going to have an enjoyable game experience.

Heck there are some aircraft carriers that have a shallower draft then some cruisers It would be cool if it had More options to the torpedoes but sadly it's just a battleship killer

Feels more like when they nerfed AFT and BFT so it didn't work on Mogami, then buffed Kutuzov with the exact values that losing AFT/BFT took away.

Imagine a premium BB that could only shoot cruisers.  That wouldn't fly, period.

Suzu... the Germans never really considered the Scharnhorst as Battlecruisers. You can dig through the German propaganda reports which are all available, they will refer to these ships as Battleships. And I have yet to see a Battlecruiser with 350mm belt and 105/110mm turtleback while the Battleships had only a 320mm belt and a 120/110mm turtleback.

i wouldnt be surprised honestly, i think they just wanted Russia to have the biggest cruiser guns in the game because when the French cruisers came around Henri took that title from Moskva

Or the Mihail Kutuzov t8 premium. qhen they made 155 mm guns not benefit from the range increase after the AFT BFT nerf they magically granted the Kutuzov an extra few Km range built in for free so your captain can get different skills while other ships like Mogami and cleveland are left short range !

They probably also did that because Kutuzov owners would complain loudly that the ship they paid real $$ for got nerfed; incoming 'we want refund complaints.'

Yeah, no, it's a lot easier and apparently funnier to complain about russian bias, waah waah waah, wg is horrible, doesn't play fair and doesn't know how to run a game.

This. Even without the buff it received, the Kutz would not have been *nerfed* as the change wasn't to the ship, but rather the captains potentially attached to it.

The Kutz thing still bothers me as it was buffed wit the predicated idea that *every* Kutz player mounted pre-nerf AFT and thus were 'losing' something when AFT was nerfed. Except that is far from a guarantee and moreover, the blanket *buff* it got means that the Kutz essentially gets, for free, a pre-nerf AFT 4 point skill baked in for free. That would be like if they changed FP to only reduce fires to 3 on cruisers, destroyers and carriers, but they left the ability baked into warspite; it would be basically giving owners of those ships a free 23 point captain due to having a free 4 point skill.

lol I played War Thunder years ago and the Russian bias when it came to tanks was stupid. I kept thinking damn id the T-34 was this good in real life they would have won the war in 3 weeks.
