I hope you think New Mexico can effectively fight Izumo and Iowa, because that's basically California.

I hope you think West Virginia can fight Iowa and Izumo because that's basically Colorado.

Well the one battle I saw it in, didn't get shot by it much. But there is a chance it may have some kind of small edge over New Mex with gun dispersion or whatever. It did seem to take pen damage about the same as a regular New Mex but sinop guns are sinop guns so not sure that really counts for much.

OMG, this actually happened to me in the Defense of the Newport operation yesterday. An Izumo showed up as sort of a boss-of-the-stage thing, and I did brawl it in my New Mexico, lol! :Smile_veryhappy:

Granted it was a bot and in an operation... but still, I hope you get my idea... lel. :Smile_hiding:

Lyon also has 14" guns.  It just has more of them.  And arguably worse armor.

Pick your poison carefully.

340mm, which is more like 13.4"

Fair enough.  But against T9s, a half inch or so won't make enough difference to save your bacon.

Yeah, my bad. Should've called the thread "The problem with USS California".

It works out to about 50mm worth of penetration difference at 15km, so that half inch is hella important.  American 356mm guns aren't to be sneezed at.  Their penetration is excellent for their caliber.

Why does California have to be effective against T9 again? Because ships like Gneisenau, Nagato and Colorado are such monsters when facing Iowa or Izumo?
