Yes, please.  My Musa really, really needs them!

I would like to order ALL of the Sanshikidan that you have!

As cool as that would be, it would add an unnecessary and broken Damage source to an already potent Yamato AA suite. Also, the beehive rounds weren't really that effective due to how slow the guns could aim and it would be kind of weird to fire a salvo of AP right after beehive since the game doesnt account for dual purpose guns reloading.

Well it would be nice as a consumable like you can activate it to load in a salvo of them and you have the aviation version of wall of skill.

I was thinking for tier 8+ Japanese line BBs but...

Amagi: she's pretty goood~

Izumo: ah she got buffed over time.

Yamato: oh you mean the lolpen machine? 

Well maybe we can have the option to swap out catapult plane for this.

You do not think the 30 second reload of main guns would make these a waste of time? Planes would be gone before you could even load them.

While an interesting weapon, in service was basically ineffective as it was intended for long range defense against torpedo bombers.

 

They also messed up the barrel rifling, and while the main battery was in use, the other open AA mounts could not be manned due to the blast pressure.

I think a round with real live bees would be more entertaining. :Smile_teethhappy:

I would appreciate this, if only for the visuals. Though I fear a reasonable representation of the fireworks involved would bring our FPS down to about 5.

Why not?

 

Add it as a third ammunition type!

 

You can fire it at enemy aircraft, creating fireworks, but these cause no damage!

Yeah, basically were only using these IRL on Yamato on her suicide run, because they weren't that worried about the rifling at that point.
