Hello Fellow WoWs Players,
 
My friends and I have wanted a certain ship Class to be in the game from the very start. Now that guns bigger than 460mm have been added, we believe that this ship class should be added with its guns the same size as Shikishima, at this point you have probably realised that we are talking about the H-44 Super Battleship project. This ship would be an absolutely great asset to the game and DEFINITELY bring close combat back into the meta. This ship would be a very fun ship to play and there are many gimmicks that it could have for instance:
 
A large Hp Pool,
Great Armour,
Big 510mm guns,
30 knots like it would have had in real life,
Many Secondary guns, etc
 
The guns could have whatever they need to make them balanced out as well as low manuverability as well and even the largest turning circle in the game.
 
A lot of people have wanted this ship to be added into the game for years and now is the chance to finally have it. 
 
The Means of Purchasing the ship could be Free Xp or Coal/Steel, Even adding it to the Research Bureau.
 
Please consider eventually adding this ship into the game since it was actually fully designed in real life.
 
 
Also this is my NA Account that it auto logs into, that is why it is not good stats or anything lol.

Shikishima is 'balanced' because it has only 6 guns and everything else about the ship is bad. And you want a ship with more HP by about 50%, more guns by 33%, better armor, turtleback, better speed, better secondaries, better AA, and somehow believe that 'it has a large turning circle' makes it a fair and balanced T10?

What are you smoking and can I have some of it?

As any Death Star, it must have a fatal design flaw. Shoot it below funnel #2 and it detonates.

You know what else it could have?  Attack helicopters, laser beams and it can call in air strikes from orbit.  Just little outer space airstrikes though, not big ones.  For balance.

I already tried this.

If we want to talk realistic implementation, we could have it in a separate game mode for an event.

Otherwise, the largest practical size we can expect to be able to extract out of the H-Class designs would be the H-42 armed with the 48cm guns. Maybe the H-43 If we wanted to go bonkers. I'll link you to my H-43 proposal when I get the chance

Edit: to whom it may concern

There's your H-43 proposal

It would be very un manuverable as well as not having the best AA, being an easy target, Bad dispersion. It would be balanced.

There's a difference between an easy target and an easy target that's German.

German ships, particularly the BBs, can be extremely difficult to take down if played right, Kurfurst being a prime example. Yes, I know that we all hear stories of Kurfursts burning to the waterline in a matter of minutes, salt flowing freely, etc., but those stories are caused not by the ship being weak, but the player's mindset being weak, i.e not judiciously using Damage Control or Repair Party, not knowing when to run, so on and so forth. If you play the Kurfurst right, that bratwurst will keep on floating and coming back to tank more damage. If you think Kremlin is impossible to kill, you haven't seen impossible to kill.

Let that sink in for a minute when making an argument for the H-44.

:Smile_veryhappy:

I don't think removing it's ability to move would make it balanced.

We did size measurements of the H44 back in the day compared to the GK. It's actually so large I'm pretty sure it can't go through the islands in Two Brothers.

I just want to play coastal artillery for a change. no ship, just ridiculous sized gun on an island.

Probably not for wows but that would be a cool idea for a game.

Given that the only ship in the game with guns larger than 460mm is effectively Yamato's sister, I don't consider the 32mm overmatch barrier to be truly broken at this point.

Give it 90 second reload, and no rudder.

And a steering oar and paddles, no engines.

Let's not get too carried away, I'll settle for the USN nuclear shells on Iowa, Missouri, and Montana. Knocks out ships AND aircraft in a 10km radius. But you only get one salvo per game to balance it:Smile_hiding:

No, it will fit pretty easy if you can not turn into the islands and use the rudder and speed properly it will get through fine. Problem when ya got dds after ya lol!

They could even nerf those specific guns' overmatch so it is 30 like a 457 but have the alpha of 508's or 510s

"I would say 40-50 Second Reload and a 30-35 Second rudder is a realistic and fair base Stat!" - Me 🤨

We are already on 40 second reloads with ships.

isnt the H-44 a pure fantasy ship? A ship that wasnt even feasible for construction? We have tons of paper ships in the game but they all could of been constructed. This thing. Im not so sure. I think the Kurfurst herself is pushing that boundary. 

The only way id like to see this ship in game is a boss ship for a special event. Similar to how the Rasputin is. Maybe a tier X game mode
