Can we BBs get an extended fighter flight time or shorter cool downs to supplement AA?

Also can we BBs get a drop anchor mod/ consumable to help with manuvers in general?

Please no. There's no way an anchor chain wouldn't just snap like a twig the moment an at-speed 35k ton battleship drops the anchor and it finds purchase.

Worked in the film Battleship; that's the whole reason we won against the aliens - for sure! :Smile_teethhappy:

A few possibilities... the anchor just gets dragged along the ocean floor, gets ripped out of the ship, or the chain snaps. There is no force on the planet that could stop a 50,000 ton ship in its tracks, save maybe an island.

 

This isnt the movie theater. Basic physics says no thank you

No.

There are problems with this movie ridiculousness.

  1. As Lert stated, the anchor would either drag the bottom, or, if it did manage to dig in hard, would either break the anchor chain or more likely, rip the anchor chain mooring mechanisms from their mounts and cause massive damage to the ship.
  2. Even if it would work, you would now be anchored in place for the rest of the game.

Club hauling is real but it was never done at speed, a few knots at most.
