Dreadnought is missing an item onboard, anyone spot it right away?

SPOILERS BELOW

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has 17 of it's 76mm secondaries. One is missing from the stern, though the mount for it is there.

Is this a historical easter egg? Or was it purely a WG thing?

The same holds true for the Oktober Revolutsya - one of the 37mm AA guns on turret 3 is missing a gun shield and all the life boats are missing, even though there are brackets to hold them. What gives?

All I know is that HMS Dreadnought is definitely missing some knots. WG what happened to the historical 21kt speed? :Smile-angry:

Oh?

Wasn't it 19kt when it was released? Has it buffed or is my memory just buggy? Which wouldn't be the first time lol.

The Secondaries are a joke.  You are better off telling your sailors to throw the guns overboard and hope the enemy sails into them and sinks :Smile_veryhappy:

I am not going to lie it's one butt ugly ship. But it grows on you like an ugly puppy that you just know is going to grow up to be an even uglier dog but you just can bring yourself to shoot it

If I recall correctly, the version of October Revolution that we got in the game is the one that was parked in the harbor during the war.  It just sat there and shot at the German planes that came to bomb the city.  That is why it has AA guns everywhere and there is no need for the life boats.

Several of Dreadnought's secondaries were intended to be dismounted and stored elsewhere to keep the main batteries from damaging them, it also sounds like the RN relocated various secondary guns though out her service life. It probably matches a picture somewhere.

Not sure why the 37mm mount on the OR is missing the shield, but she is in her WWII configuration, and the boats would have been removed before she got into combat to remove a fire hazard, keep the main guns from destroying them, ect..., this was common practice in most navies.

Mine does 21 knots. It does take a while to get there, though.

Dreadnought is still missing as a stand alone purchase from the shop.
Looking forward to when it is... Charleston too as 15000 coal is a bit too step imho.

I hope it gets it's rear secondary, I doubt it'll fire often with my playstyle ( :Smile_izmena: ) but it might be fun when it does.

I got lucky I had a 30 percent off coupon and used it to buy the bundle with both the Vanguard and Dreadnought. Just one thing is the Vanguard is a little underpowered for a tier 8 so if you decide to go that route be prepared to use the Vanguard for attacking cruisers.

I got Charleston on Wednesday night for the amount of coal it was going for. It's just like the St. Louis tier 2 US Cruiser.

tier 3
