I have had this bug for a while but could not explain it in proper form. When you engage a target with just your front turret it will not shot and it will say unable to aim in this direction. Even in third person aiming mode it will not fire until you aim beyond 6-8km in open water. It is only in a cone shape in front of the ship 1-3 degrees and it is a small section but a critical one.

I don't have the ship model in front of me, but is there anything at the front of it that would stop it firing? They have something similar on the Venezia that stops it's third forward turret from shooting straight ahead.

There are rockets in front of the guns. It will not allow you to fire while aiming straight forward and depressing your guns downward. This mechanic is more noticeable to me on the Halland (don’t have the Smaland) than any other ship I’ve played.

I thought it was a bug too and was going to send in a ticket until a clan mate told me what it was.

Well I can tell you it has almost cost me a fight or two not being able to shot forward at a target in front of me. Good to know thanks for all the responses!

As others have mentioned, this actually isn't a bug. The Halland class have the 375mm ASW mortars mounted on the bow, which give the Halland and Smaland a dead zone forward inside of ~7km.

Smaland does it too and like you say it’s the rockets in front of the turret.
