Nice, and CV's and other Dead Eye Snipers. Can not wait to get Palo, going for Slava first then it will be on deck.

Yep and one hell of a shooting scale slide over to the side somewhere in the realm of numbers 15 to 20 to land rounds on that fast dd.

I forget which of my dd's do close to 50 with all boosts added on. At 60 you can pretty much roll into a Objective circle base, take the place and get out long before the enemy putts putts putts putts to it. One of these days I must get a frenchie DD so I can do that. Grab Bases in the faces of our dear red human opponets.

That's a way to get spotting ribbons.

Agreed.

It would be such a ribbon machine. kaching! almost a game exploit even.

What would be awesome to see it outrun torps. A wall headed for it and it just pulls away. Zip! NYAH NYAH NYAH you cannot torp me... ha ha ha.

No kidding - I already have to zoom out 1-2 clicks for Frenchie DDs and CAs. Double the lead or more than for traditionally fast boats like Soviet DDs. It is one of several “meme-worthy” elements of this game. Paolo Emilio sounds ridiculous.

Imagine going fast when no one else can hear your boss music. :Smile_hiding:

Ha, saw that on Reddit. At that point Yolo Emilio should get a supersonic permacamo with sonic booms as special effects when you hit speed boost :Smile_teethhappy:.

60kt is very fun indeed. Only problem is out running the smoke... lol...

At what speed does that happen?  This video didnt outrun it though?  Or is that why he was tapping his rudder alot, to keep the speed under the smoke outrun speed?

You cannot even shoot at that thing.  Its like shooting like a CV no zoom just hope you see it.

Has any military boat (that weighs more than 20 tons) in the last 80 years ever hit 60 knots? A friend who served on an Australian destroyer 10 years ago said even at 30 knots it was scary fast.

 

Edit. Norway has these things..

Right at 60kt..with speed max at 60.3ktshot-21_01.28_17_07.00-0776.thumb.jpg.a8ef4d32559a3fe581a41524e3b69ce4.jpg

I tested it and found tap rudder will decrease your speed to around 56kt so smoke can keep up.

Another solution is to get the Dazzle skill instead of CE. Because if you're charging someone, being detected when you out run your smoke will automatically decrease your speed down to under 60kt and let the smoke keep up again. But this build is not as effective as CE IMO.

If you gently tap you can cruise at 59.5, which is the absolute safe limit. You can supercruise at 60.3 going to other points though. Funny watching a Republique falling behind.

Damien Williams: Fantasy Football Outlook, Projection | RotoBaller

What makes that truly amazing is Williams (the running back) was at a full run.  Hill was at a walk 7 yards behind him, and add a couple of yards due to the angle.  Hill hit the nitrous and made everyone look silly.  He made the highlight reel without even touching the ball.  That guy is an alien.
