Okay, I think everybody knows how I feel about the Alaska. But this is not about that. Its about this bad mamma jamma:

Out of curiosity, how much damage did all those secondary hits do?

Not much really, LOL.. only a few K... I do think the Bismark's do more damage, but I'll have to play a few more games to let you know...

Massachusetts basically requires IFHE for substantial damage. Yes, it is worth it.

BRAWL MORE.

At least in the 5-10k range. Equip a FULL secondary build, mount the signal if you have it, and go to town.

60 is a low number. :cap_rambo:

It is my best USN BB by far.  Even without IFHE I get close quarter expert on a regular basis - 13 pt captain.

The skill screen will try to tell that IFHE is ‘inefficient’ on Mammie; just ignore that. If you go full secondary the IFHE is for them anyway.

Been using my original South Carolina driver, who is of course now 19 points.

Such glorious fireworks; especially with MFCSB.

Note that while Bismarck/Tirpitz used to have some HE and some AP secondary damage, I believe now they're all HE.  However, they have the German HE pen advantage, I think, where the US needs IFHE to get the same damage.

49+ super containers.  No ships.  :Smile_sad:

*edit - got a "secret Santa" container today for completing Stage 3 of Prinz Eidel Friedrich event.  Instead of a secret Santa package, it is a super container.  Whaaaaa????

T7 Abruzzi.

Full secondary build with IFHE makes the mass a beast!   Seriously huge difference in IFHE.  I have had games where I do 60,000+ dmg with secondaries NOT with fires.    you can basically penn all powers/sterns with IFHE.  so its a critical upgrade.

That ship is so much fun. I just dropped my 19 pt Atlanta captain in it as advised by @NotoriousRNGand have at it. That captain has IFHE and manual AA. I gave up Superintendent but the loss of a heal doesnt seem to matter much. Averaging 90K damage and won 11 of 14 in it. The guns are brutal and the secondaries are pure pewpewpew.

Hrm. I unspec'd IFHE when they gave us free capt respecs at the start of Dec and haven't regretted it. My secondaries can still do a LOT of damage, and with Fire Prevention I seem to last a lot longer. I'm no super star captain though, so I'm sure how folks play it affect how it all works out.

With my Gascogne, I did a secondary building but with Demolition Expert, in order to boost up secondary damage.  The fires do way more than the actual hits..

Maybe if I get the captain high enough to get a second tier four skill, I'll use IF HE.

French BBs don't have strangely nerfed fire chances on their secondary pew pews.

Wow, I've been living a lie my whole life. No idea why I thought it was ZZ Top then. Seemed like such a southern rock thing.

The benefit to IFHE on the 127s is that you break through a lot of important penetration barriers, allowing you to deal direct damage to more ships (including a lot of battleships), versus hoping your 5% fire chance pays off.
