Which t10 BB are we talking about here, given they all have exactly the same base fire resistance number?

You got downvoted because you speak the truth.  Cristoforo Colombo's fire resistance is no different from any other Tier X non-CV.

It's very common for players to think that their ship is magically the most flammable in the game.  The misinformation has always run rampant in this game.

 

For those that want to get better, three simple rules with fire resistance:

1.  The higher the tier, the more resistant to catching fire.

2.  Stock hulls are worse in fire resistance than upgraded hulls.

3.  CVs catch fire more easily.

Uh what are you on about? Besides the fact it doesn't have a special damage control, you shouldn't have any more problems with fires on this than you would in a montana.

There are things that the ita BBs are good at, and there are things that they are bad at. This is not it.

IMO with my early thoughts on this ship, the entire ITA Battleship Line is the way it is solely because of C.Colombo.

Shooting funny salvoes is the identity of the ship.

Let it burn. I don't care. It takes forever to burn if you get it lit.

I got the Coumbo tonight and experimented with her in Random. Ran off a Klebier, shot up a couple of cruisers and a few BB's who did a bit of damage but nothing special or fearsome.

I can forget the engine power when turning drops you all the way down to 20 landlubber knots and actually imposes a sway from the bridge view behind the front turrets that might have to be addressed.

I will add the shooting incoming warning gauge. Someone wanna open up on that Italian bastard from 20 miles is more than welcome to. That should be just enough seconds to nerf the speed, slam the rudder over and in general not be here anymore when the blessed shells get there. Now I understand why the Italians dont drive stuff that big, it stops up the Mediterranean sea.
