Just got the Helena and noticed the model has spent shell casings in the catcher net under B turret. Probably inaccurate for a ship in port but cool anyway. Right up there with the "landing guns" on the St Louis.

On another note...I took CE instead of IFHE (moved and advanced an 8 pt captain from reserve) and am finding my damage output kinda low for the number of hits achieved. Did I err? It is a looong way to 14 pts...

I don't think so.  I was doing over 50k a game before IFHE on my Nueve de Julio.  If you're not getting damage, your aim is off or your positioning is off.

Not going to argue that I often fall short on either. But I will get lots of hits to the superstructure for very little damage. Not as many fires as I would hope even with DE. 

This is one of those ships where "aiming" at med-long range is more spray and pray.

That's odd.  I don't run DE at all (and rarely flags) and usually I score around 175 hits with 5-10 fires.  I am up to 14 points on my NdJ now, so I have IFHE, so results are no longer comparable on NA server.

Happened to check this earlier and found the nets there too. Look EXACTLY the same so probably some labor saving cut and paste going on.
