I have heard this walrus of a carrier has been spotted in the wild. The claim I heard: "it attacked me with AP rockets and took 10k off the side!"

So are the planes the same as Graf Zeppelin? 

What else have people heard?

It kills ships by the hundreds and if it were here it would consume the red team with fireballs from it's secondaries and bolts of lightning from its stern. :cap_rambo:

i mean,the ap rockets are designed to get citadel pen from broadside ships,pretty dangerous ship if you are caught in the open,but it's hard to get a good shot with the ap rockets.

Apparently several cruisers with either low slung citadels or turtleback citadel armour (aka ze Germans) are basically immune to citadel damage from the rockets but will take normal pens. The Alaska is, so I'm told, stupidly hard to citadel with AP rockets because her citadel is low sung.

Actually if you are caught in the open you have plenty of room to maneuver bow/stern to them before the attack & mitigate most of the damage...if you are camping you are in trouble because they can line up the broadside pretty easy.

yes,thats why it's hard to get a good shot,the aiming is small and the ship,if its not camping can maneuver.

ap rockets are very limited compared to HE rockets,you are kinda forced to shoot at broadside and the ap is not that effective against dds.

meanwhile HE rockets can burn,you can hit at any angle besides broadside and it useful against dds.

For the Tier X if that includes lots of citadels i'd say that is pretty low and be kinda disappointed.  I've gotten 14k+ in single volley's (6 Citadel's) with the Parseval. I've also gotten 8k against a Salem with no citadels (10 pens, 2 overpens) in a single volley.

However like other posters have mentioned it does require co-operating targets. To get 6 citadels like I mentioned the target really can't change course. In the case of the Salem he was practically stationary, and I think I hit him a little high.

On a perfect shot it can wipe 30k in one go. That sounds terrifying until you realize that even a slight angle neuters AP rockets hard. Honestly AP rockets are implemented terribly. They have the potential on unicorn salvos to do way too much damage but simultaneously lack any sort of versatility or consistency against most targets. They should probably lower the ceiling and improve the pen/angles to raise their usability.
