When you think of the word "firepower", which ship in your fleet best fits that description?

Regardless of what class, everyone has a ship that best symbolizes awesome firepower.

Whether it is in the form of guns, torpedoes, or aircraft, each captain has something in their port that can rain destruction to the enemy fleet.

What ship or ships in your fleet do you call upon to bring your team awesome firepower?

"This ship is built to fight. You had better know how." - Arleigh Burke, US Navy

I feel as though I am back in junior high school.

We are mostly adults here.

Why is it you feel to insult the adults with childish questions?

I am through with your silliness.

North Carolina and her 406's punishing just about anything that shows a broadside to her.

    Yamato and Conq both just don't even care about your angling.

Helena and 155mm Mogami.

They're just bristling with guns, have a quick rate of fire, and they do anywhere from devastating to appreciable damage to anyone caught on the other end of those barrels. Plus, the two of them are just plain fun to play.

Mikasa, it is like a heavily armored St Louis with the bonus of four big guns. :Smile_hiding:

Answer the question or dont. There is no point in opposing and insulting somebody simply trying to interact and bond with the community

Be careful of what you say, or you will inadvertently put your favorite ship on WG's nerf list.

Best firepower? Worcester. :cap_look:

Yamato for sure. Oddly, I clicked with Emile Bertin and La Gal with great effect as well.

Raw power? Missouri because she actually participated in the war and is still afloat to whisper her stories.

In game the Yamato is the one ship I never want shooting at me.

Mogami.

^^^This for HE spamming hands down (Helena is good too but Mogami's middle turret allowing for 360 rotation trumps Helena's ability to keep all guns on target while maneuvering...although it's slightly better meta & increased ROF & fire chance do make up for a lot when you got the perfect angle that requires little to no maneuvering to stay locked on a target). Then the Worcester & Atlanta.

Of course the Yammy & Musashi are the AP monsters but despite most people using HE on the Lyon w/it's 16 barrels I find it hits a pretty good percentage of cits even on angled ships due to so many chances to connect w/just the right spot each volley. I don't have Conqueror yet to compare though I have eaten a few AP rounds from them & they are pretty ruthless...although more ruthless when they join in on an HE spamfest due to the insane damage & almost guaranteed fires added into the mix.

I'm at the Lion & it falls more into the HE spammer category although it's AP is pretty potent when I switch to it for close range brawling later on in matches. Haven't gotten the gun damage mod yet though so will probably do more AP after that from farther away when I do...I tend to load HE at the start to help knock down DDs at caps in the beginning because it's brutally effective (aka accurate) for that. Got a Whitherer achievement shortly after getting it so will probably keep HE spamming until I finish off the 3 Whitherer task I put up shortly after that.

Zao and the Donskoi....for water HE  railgun spammers at max range. Watch your opponents shriek in agony as you burn them and they can't you due to your mad kiting skills. But might just be the legendary mod.

 

Lyon...when you can dev strike a DD with AP alone.

 

The Haragumo..pinacle of the IJN gunship line.

This post strikes me as a way to modify the OP ships.  I thought the same thing you did and I laughed when I read your post.

 

I haven't gotten much past T6 so when I think of firepower, I think of my Fuso unloading a six-rifle salvo into a broadside Pensacola 8 km away and blapping him while I laugh.

Arizona, her guns shoot semi straight and are pretty consistent dmg dealers.

If only t6 mm didnt blow, and ops allowed us to play endlessly...

You know this forum is about a video game, right?
