So just watch the WoWs official twitch stream and they was playing the Tier 9 Pommern with secondary build.

I noticed that their lock on Secondaries was hitting thing out 13km and then 14km...So I said wth how you hitting that far out?

Then they switched ships.

Reason I ask is mine shows 7.6km

 

You should only be able to get the ship to hit out to 11.5km 

 

You need advanced firing training as a commander skill

and the secondary module on the third slot of your ship

got the secondary range wrong, 11.5km for Pom & FDG

To get to 11.5KM, you have to have AFT (10%), the secondaries flag (5%), and then Secondary Battery Mod 1 (20%).  That is as far as they can go on Pommern.

If you are going for the full memes secondary build, then you'd add BFT (10% faster reload) and Auxiliary Armaments Mod 2 (20% Reload), and then put Lutjens on there for the 20% reload after 100 hits and watch the fireworks fly.  IFHE is you just want to go completely crazy....

The longest secondaries in the game are Republique I believe at 12.1....so nobody is hitting secondaries at 13-14.

The main  battery can hit that far out and more, but I doubt that the secondaries were hitting targets at that distance, something else was happening.

hehe they're great builds, I still love them and use them in PvP and have great success, everyone seems to think you wouldn't have a secondary build, then they get close and you can see the moment they regret their life choices

I have to level up my Lutjens a bit and then I am absolutely going to try it.  I like secondary builds, at least as an option and have a US and German captain specced for it (along with alternative fireproof captains).

ever since the Germans were first released I have run secondary builds, 
I got a little obsessed with Tirpitz, and got it up to 1400 games..... 

love them so much, DD's wanna fling their noob tubes, sweet then, I am gonna pepper them from 11km away [If they were spotted ofcourse]:cap_haloween:

I'd love to see the proof of those secondaries hitting targets 13km out.

I think it was just confusion and would not read into it much

Hard to come by evidence that the MAIN GUNS can hit targets 13km.....  :cap_rambo:

I don't think anyone is going to rewatch a 4+ hour stream to check this out.

WowS official twitch stream

what it might have been is actually 11.3km ? and the font was not being displayed correctly? 
Unfortunately the longest ranged secondaries are on the French ships and not the germans. 

Longest german secondaries are on Kurfurst and Odin clocking in at 11.6km 

So I really do mean no disrespect, I just think it was a mistaken in what was seen, unless I have misunderstood and you have been speaking about french ships?

yeah I figured it was something like that, but I was not gonna berate you for being wrong either. 

I am glad you're loving the game though :) 

Just had a great game in Ranked, myself another another tirpitz just went rolling in and bullied their frontlines and rolled them back. 
Much fun was had :)

Glad you got that cleared up...I was gonna suggest it might have been 2ndary hits on another ship not seeing the view that you might have been attributing to 14km hits because it was the only ship you could see...but glad you clarified it...thanx.

Might wanna go back & edit your OP so others don't get confused :-)

Yes,  coining the name 'Pom Pom' for this ship,
 

I was thinking about 'Pomegranate' or possibly 'Pommeler', but 'Pom Pom' isn't bad.

One way or another it's a darn fun ship. I've made it the new home for my AL Roon captain, someone with that voice deserves a better home than that rust-bucket cruiser.
