Stupid question - does the Roma still have the beer can on it?

I'm considering using my 25% discount on the Roma, but I cant stand the beer can on the top of it. When I looked at it in the Armory, it looks like this has been removed. Has anyone bought the Roma recently?

The 'beer can" is a special camo you purchase separately. They may have had it bundled before but they dont now. Your Roma will look the standard/real way.

As said before, the beer can is part of the special camo, the ship normally doesn't have one.

This is with her standard camo.

Honestly, that still looks like a beer can on top to me. Is there a difference between the standard beer can and the decorative artsy special camo beer can?

Don't you like beer?

If they put this on top, they could charge like $50 for the camo.

Say what you will... that camo has grown on me quite a bit:Smile_hiding: I personally kinda like it

 

But yes, the 'beer can' has and always will be an additional camoflage. What you are asking would be like asking for a non-spaceship Henri. Completely optional.

The normal rangefinders are more like a Cossack hat.

The Japanese had their pagoda masts, the Italians had their Cossack hats (see Giulio Cesare).

The standard look of the ship honestly looks less beer can like and round observation post like. While some ships have other shaped upper areas on them, it seems the Italians opted to rounded off design which likely could have carried some advantages such as bouncing glancing hits better?

The beer camo is the stupidest I've seen so far.

On top of that, when Roma gets BBQed by HE spam, can you imagine what happens to the beer? Yuck!

That is the "Hold my beer" camo and yes it is horrible looking. I think it gave pretty good xp and/or credits though.

For the simple install of a skin, you can have the camo and lose the beercan (both from your own Roma, and anyone elses - whether you own one or not).  I always run it on mine, the camo gives great bonii, but I don't have to deal with can of stupid.

I'm pretty sure there's a mod floating around somewhere that removes the "beer can". Personally, I've always thought is looked more like a thick church candle.

Kind of reminds me of the old Spruance Class ARTHUR W. RADFORD (DD 968)

Perhaps, Umi, but it is the historical design of the Roma.

That was the AEMS mast they outfitted her with but she didn't get the ABL's for the tomahawk like the ship I was on did (look in my sig), She got the VLS later down the road. We also got the an/sqr-19 tail right before I left the ship.

That was the nice thing about the spruance's , they were modular and you could pretty much bolt anything into them or onto them.

My understanding was that Spruance and Tico shared the same hull, more or less?

Yep. My XO was project officer for the finger. I was on Hayler and the Burke Laboon.  Loved the Sprucans.
