It was a real ship, so I'll buy it.

Most IJN BBs were held in reserve for a 'decisive battle' that never happened. 

The Ise and Hyuga might have saved the day during the battle of Leyte Gulf if they had been with Kurita rather than Ozawa.
And it's not the ships I'm talking about.  It's the captains.

The only 'smart' captain they had in the Battle off Samar was Shimazaki Toshio on the Kongo.

As Battleships, these boats were underutilized.   After conversion, something unexpected happened.
However, I saw on one intel account that US airmen were advised to stay away from the hybrid carriers for two reasons.
1)  The flak they put up was extremely accurate, especially around that half-flight deck - more so than any other Japanese ship.  I didn't see any analysis, but I have guesses.
2)  They didn't carry any large amounts of aviation ordnance, fuel, or other combustibles a carrier would have.  Mission kills would be difficult.

Sounds like a fun ship, and I've heard good things from the testers.  If I liked playing BBs more I'd get it.

@Hapa_Fodder You guys may want to reword this section:  It describes Hyuga during an earlier point in her development when you had her at a 26 second reload and longer ranged guns.  She now has the same reload time as Fuso and the gun range was reduced.

"In comparison with flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcstandard_01624cacb82f39f77a4e677a7b9fdf4VI Fusō, flag_Japan_740b57e1da9b5d3fe46b61e09e3dcpremium_1d0cabf1997104fd727039ab9c098192VII Hyūga's main battery guns are more accurate. They also have a longer firing range and shorter reload time."

I was actually just reading that! Good catch, I am sending this up right now! :Smile_izmena:

And without a spotter plane ??  This deal is getting worse every moment.  Fuso would out-range it.
Hope the armor is better than the Fuso...  It's going to need it.

Reviews are finding it to be very good for its tier.  It is more accurate (1.8 sigma compared to Fuso's 1.5) and has a reload booster.  I am less sure of armor differences, but I would not be surprised if Fuso does not have the 32mm torpedo belt that Hyuga does.

Nice to see a premium ship added to the game.  I like the name.  I'm curious about the ship.

Recently welcomed High School Fleet Commanders are looking for a vessel to be the Captain of.

You will face ships your shells cannot penetrate 75% of the time as you will be uptiered. 

Cannot recommend due to the matchmaking... if it only saw T7-T8 it would be a must buy.

Face musashi? It's just too hard a task.
