  1. I don't think we gave a promise (quote please), and with all due respect, please let's distinguish between intention (we don't want, don't plan, etc) and promise (we commit to, we promise, etc). So, there is no strict ban on 460mm+ ships, but, as lolpen ability is quite valuable, we don't really want to rush any such ships into production. Can they appear in future? Yes. Never say never, as history teaches me :D

So what do you all think about this?

A-150 is overrated imho. There's no important armour thresholds it can overmatch that Yamato cannot overmatch. But in exchange for bigger shell calibur it loses 3 guns, and I assume would have horrible reload. Not worth the trade.

Did You see the Fricking USS Georgia with the 6 - 18 inch guns that they are putting into the game?

Considering how WG seems to believe a 24s reload to be reasonable for a 431mm gun, I think it‘s fairly safe to say that a 510mm gun could be made to reload in 30s in-game.

Well Hell, we could get them to build the Fuhrur. (sic) You know 40 inch guns, with 15inch and 11.1 inch guns as secondary's.

 

I had once asked this person online if it was harder to admit he was Gay or to tell his family.

The supposed Fuhrer guns would have been the rail gun Dora barrels. Around 31.5 inches (80cm) if I remember right. Anyway this would have been totally impractical on a ship, especially one that would weigh as much as 5 US modern Aircraft Carriers.

Actually in real life the gun wasn't that large as seen here.

I don't want to get too carried away with the idea of a bunch of 18+ guns running around, but I guess that opens up the possibility of a 4x2 480mm H41-Class battleship.  More realistically though, I'd love to see a 420mm H41-Class battleship introduced:

  • T10 - 92,100hp, same armor as GK
  • 4x2 420mm configuration w/ 2.0 sigma and 26s reload to make up for only having 8 shells
  • 8km base secondary range
    • 8x 128mm twin mounts
    • 6x 150mm twin mounts
  • Numerous 57mm AA mounts
  • Hydro

We need us a new high tier German BB.  :)

I agree.  I don't think the A-150 will inbalance the game, in fact I think it'll do badly since 6 guns ships tend not to be competitive with damage.  It's just the novelty value of seeing 20 inch guns in the game that I think people are after.
