How do I get the Dallas from Ultimate Frontier?

I tried the tech tree Dallas but found it wimpy. I then sold it.

In contrast, the Dallas that spawns in F10 is a beast.  It's wrecked my Abruzzi and Belfast both times. 

Since I know where it spawns I position myself so that I can go nose in with both AP and HE at its mid-section.  

Alternating between both AP/HE, I wallop the thing but it keeps going and going.

Then  KA-BOOM!!!!!!  It detonates me.

Seriassly, how do I get that Dallas?

PS I love the Helena. 75% winrate!

Looks like you needed a signal or a module.

Dallas is a strong bote. It doesn't take much at all to do well in it. I think it's got all the party favors though - it's a serious threat in that scenario

Iz stronkbote?  Maybe I sold it off too fast. Might have to revisit it.  I like T6.

It's not Cleveland T6 but I have no complaints about it.

After you are dead, Free-Camera over and take a snap-shot <Alt> PrtScr shot of it's camo and flags -- for later ID and analysis.

Of course, if you have a good team, one of the battleships is already there to deal with it.  If not...   Oh well.

I usually show run the Scharnhorst up North to kill the Atlanta, then finish off the Indy and Dallas.  My goal is to save Kato since we will badly need it later.

Then it's a race back to the center to finish off the DDs and protect the repair base.

Let's see...   Mantra...   Battleships kill Cruisers, cruisers kill Destroyers, Destroyers kill battleships...

If you go head to head with a cruiser, expect a 1:1 trade.

You must be assimilated to the WG Borg if you want that Dallas.

Bot ships in Operations are stronger than their tech tree counterparts.

You probably tried a Dallas with a couple of flags and a 10-point commander. Ultimate Frontier Dallas must have a 19-point commander with a full set of combat flags (and who knows what other gadgets WG gives to bots).

Yeah Dallas is a great ship. I play her like an Atlanta, sneak around and let lose when enemies aren't looking.:cap_rambo:

Bots are tricked out, I recall noticing the Kumas in Newport have more HP than some battleships.

Dollars to donuts, the bots get their premium accounts and signal flags for free.

Or at least a deep-deep discount.

I wish I were a bot.

I sense an element of that too, but I think there's also a fair bit of genuine curiosity to know exactly how the bot is configured.

Yep. Since they buffed it the bots in Ultimate F.U. play like super unicums coordinating on voice chat.  They all seem unnaturally resistant to fire damage while having a practically 100% chance of starting a fire.  A lot of those same ships I can kill in random or PvE.  But in this Op they seem to shrug off damage like a GK would shrug off the secondary hits from an Emerald.

Sounds to me like you want the Elite Thoroughly Researched  Dallas  that means not only do you have to the Dallas but the Helena   as well...............And probably a 19 point captain in addition:Smile_honoring::Smile_teethhappy:

Yeah. UF bots consistently do things only done by super unicums or by people who manage to get an over abundant blessing from RNGesus.  

And my brain wasn't working great when I first read that.  It came through to my pea brain as "the bot Atlanta cit me".  I was like :Smile_amazed:

I'd rather have Atlanta that spawns in the north. It has radar guided guns that can take a flea off a dog's back without harming the dog at 11km, a + 95%  change of starting a fire with a single hit & armor that can deflect the largest T7 BB's shells, plus a +80% dispersion camo.

I've had good luck with my New Orleans against the Dallas you are talking about. It has sunk my Helena or left it with so few HP it is impossible to get to the repair base.

Someone should have a counter for every time he says that then he suddenly goes on a post spree in forums.
