Many ships in the game, namely battleships, that have raised bows (like Iowa, Montana, Scharnhorst, etc) rather than completely flat decks (like the RN BBs) can fire straight through their own bow when the guns are below a certain elevation.

I know it's nitpicky but it wouldn't be outrageous to limit the firing arcs of the number 1 turret on ships like this so they cant fire through their nose. Then again, HiSTorIcal AcCurAcY went out the window a long time ago so who really cares.

The last three words says it all.

Most major capital ships, cruisers and BB's have a dead zone, 3k to 6k yards for their main guns because they cannot depress far enough.
