I need a T10 DD with 8" guns with a 5 second reload for ambushing cruisers.

Okay, but it's a 60 second reload and it only makes 12kts.

But seriously, a mid-70's refit goes well outside the 'parameters' of the game.

Less health than a Gearing (4000 ton vs. 3500) yet larger (127 m vs. 119 m) thus easier to spot. Slower than a DM (32.5 knots), 6 torpedo tubes in a single rack, and a way deeper draft (thus slower turns); yep she'd be wrecked against most other DD's at T10, even with an Auto 8".

You know, I get the feeling that if I suggested Midway should get planes from later in her career, the anti-CV crowd would hang me and burn the corpse as a sacrifice to RNGesus.

Gearing's had Deep load of 4000 tons during Wartime/Post War. The Shermans and the Hull Specifically by the 1970's were 3500 at deep load as additional guns were pulled off the hull to save weight.

It used to have jets, way back when. I don't remember what airframes, but I do distinctly remember them having jets. They were removed when they redid what planes were at what tiers (used to be up to T6 had Biplanes.

But they would do things over and above what is in the game. The USS Hull has nothing over and above what is in the game already. It had guns and torpedoes. It's guns are comparable to Des Moines. It has limited torps, similar to Harugumo.

I know you got better sources than me, can you help me out with the citations?

Early on she had jets but those were taken out more than a few patches ago.  I am thinking they disappeared before 0.5 dropped, but I am not sure.

Yep, cause Taiwan took on the YY in 1970. 1975 is downright futuristic compared to that.

When was Kutuzov in service again? 1954 - 2000. So long as we stick with guns and torpedoes for armament why not add it?

I remember. I had just unlocked the Lexington when 5.3 dropped. Not only did it brutalize my Cleveland and Nurnberg, but it also ended my dream of playing with jet planes. Still, if WoWS ever goes belly-up and they decide to earn as much as they can by selling a single-player conversion, it's on my list of things to mod.

I think it was F2H's? Something along those lines.

This makes it a viable candidate for this game. I wouldn't mind seeing it, I'm sure it can be balanced. Except that Hull carried only one barrel of 8"? that would be a problem.

This one. It carried DM type 8" rifles for some time as experiment.

Historical accuracy hasn't prevented WG in the past with gun concepts... See: Gneisenau

Gneisenau was actually designed for 3x 2 15" and the conversion was actually started. Hull was only ever planned to carry 1x 8" IIRC.

I would buy that and play it daily until the day I died. Hell, they could market two versions - the first being as it is when the final update drops, and the second being the RTS carrier's last day.

I wonder what the processing requirements are like to run fifteen bots plus the player. On the other hand, with everything done local you would never have any issues with ping times or lag spikes.
