BB's Like the Fuso?

I really enjoy the Fuso and I'll be playing it for a while. But, looking towards the future, what other BB's perform like the Fuso?

Fast, good acceleration, long-range guns, decent re-load time, good shot pattern. Fun to drive.

Poor AA and torpedo protection.

Any higher tier BBs from other nations perform similarly? I don't know if I want the Yamoto. It seems like a big, slow target with very slow turret traverse time. 

Thank you

I didn't care for the Fuso, but what you're describing is basically the entire Japanese line.  If you like the way the Fuso feels, then the Japanese line will click with you.

The closest ship to the Fuso would probably be the Amagi.  You can also count the Kii and both Warhammer 40k ships.

Also, the Yamato is a monster.  An absolute monster.

Thats good to know. 

Does Yamoto have a good kill ratio overall? How do you look up the stats?

Thank you!

Yamato is one of the oldest ships in the game so it's stats aren't going to look as good as some of the newer ships, but it's still an excellent performer. The guns just break bones. 

You can look at the stats for all ships here

https://na.wows-numbers.com/ship/4276041424,Yamato/ You can look up warship stats on wows numbers. However take it with a grain of salt. While she may have the second worst kill ratio, there are also comparativley a huge number of people that play Yamato, especially with her being historical (not as good players too). Plus, steel ships like Shiki and Bourgogne are reserved for dedicated players who are above average and drive up the stats.

 

As for your description of your likes about Fuso, it does fit the Japanese line pretty well. I'd continue up that tree!

Forget the stats. The stats are no indication of how she will perform in YOUR hands.

Fortunately, the Public Test Server allows you - intermittently - to sample all these delights for yourself with relative ease.  https://worldofwarships.com/en/content/pt-guide/

It has been a while since I have completed the IJN BB tech tree, but if I remember correctly the Nagato was let down coming from the Fuso.  I love the Fuso.  Only 8 guns for the Nagato with shotgun accuracy, and see a lot of T8s/T9s.  For the amount of T8 CVs you will see, the AA is crap too and you will be food for CVs.

Then comes the Amagi, with it's even worse dispersion where you will be fighing T10s 40-50% of the time.  The good news about t he Amagi is there are several premium clones (T7 Ashitaka, T8 Kii, T8 Ragnarok, and T8 Ignis Purgatio).  The T6 Mutsu is a scaled down version of the Nagato with much worse gun dispersion (aimed at the waterline of a broadside cruiser at 5km....only 1 hit, an overpen)  The Izumo which has pretty good dispersion and accuracy is a true improvement over the Amagi. but the Izumo mostly gets you ready/trained to properly play the Yamato.  Why Izumo when there is Musashi?  Of all the Japanese battleships, only the Kii has respectively good AA.

You will probably enjoy Lyon with her 16 barrel shot guns.

For premium, you might want to check out Ashitaka. She has Amagi guns but gets really poor armor at a tier lower.

I would say the now buffed Izumo.

Yamato has had a better career in this game than the Japanese could have ever hoped for it in real life

Some of the French BB's  offer a similar number of main guns and better speeds than Fuso.  

Yamato is fun anyway (I've played her as a "rental" a few times and I play her on the Public Test Server).  She doesn't play the same as Fuso, in my opinion.

Nagato benefits from a full secondary battery build with Advanced Firing Training Captain's skill to accompany it.
She's fun in scenario operations when she begins pelting targets at 7.2+ km.

Come to think of it, Fuso is one of the IJN BBs that WG has not cloned.  Her and the Izumo.  If WG created the sister ship Yamashiro I would buy her, as the Fuso class is a fun ship.

USS Wyoming at tier 4 also has 6 turrets, like the Fuso.
