I'd like to propose a new Premium Battleship, maybe tier 6 or 7.

 

The Tennessee class battleship in her post-pearl harbor refit configuration.

 

Armament:

4x3 356mm (14") rifles.

8x2 127mm/38 rifles. 

Various 40mm/20mm

 

The ship was a modified New Mexico with better torpedo protection and, most importantly I think, an elevation increase in her main batteries.  The New Mexico could elevate her 14" guns to 15 degrees maximum.  The Tennessee doubled this, to 30 degrees.  This would make her able to lob rounds out to 33.6km, but of course that's wizardry ingame.  

 

The New Mexico in realistic figures could put rounds out 22,680m (~22.7 km).  Ingame, this is limited to 14,600m (14.6 km), roughly 64% of her maximum range.  Applying this same formula to the Tennessee gives us 21,168m (~21.1km) which is a respectable range for a tier 7 US battleship.

In this point in time I would rather have WG use their resources on other pressing issues and for what you're recommending I can see that happening way in the future

Certainly that was the intention.  How did that work out for y'all?

Don't know? I never run from a fight so whatever. I play the way I play but the bias some show in this game is crazy.

Ship is a prime candidate for the second USN BB line after they, also, split.

Now now.  Don't be parochial.  I very much enjoy Japanimation.

Have you never seen My Neighbor Totoro?  Or Spirited AwayCowboy Bebop?  That's just to get the hooks in you.  Much much more to explore.  Spice and Wolf (which could be set in Croatia).  Mushi-shiBleach.  Cripes, don't get me started.

Then watch Spice and Wolf.  It's different than you think. Reads more like an Adriatic animation: late-Renaissance trade commerce with a touch of animism.  It's charming.  You might even identify with the "Wolf".  She's red-headed too.

I love Looney Tunes too.  (Ever get Ren and Stimpy? Twisted.)

 

Hey, Spice and Wolf has full episodes online.  (The English translations are done right here in Ft. Worth.)

Animation is a little simplistic, but the stories rather more .. sophisticated .. than Warner Bros. 

 

[What is this thing between the Russians and the Serbs?  It got WWI going.]
