H-44

Now, this is just a guess, but I think I know the German tier 10 battleship. The H-44. It was the final ship in the line of the H-class battleships. It was about 2x the weight of Yamato, and bigger than even the Montana. Plans were cancelled during the war, but not after the dock to build the H-class ships had been completed (still active today).

It was a design Study as I recall, with no serious intentions to actually build the thing, if attempted, it would be a waste of resources, and will be sunk in time, if they could even finish the ship :P

but  ...April fools would work out just fine for the ship :P

More likely to be H41

H-39 is the tier 9 and the H-41 is the tier 10.  No other H project ships will be added.  There is a possibility of the H-42 if the H-41 is proven to be underpowered at tier 10.

H44 is too large, its displacement is roughly double what is considered the ceiling for the game (75 or 80k tons), and the proposed armament is also greater than what WG wants. 

 

like mentioned, could be a special 8-bit mode or something. would be fun PvE.

H44 is to WoWS what the P1000 is to WoT. It wouldn't even be good. It's like 2x as long as an Amagi. Carriers would have an orgasm when they lined up their unmissable attacks on it.

 

No one seriosuly wants it, and no one needs it.

It would be an awesome Superbattleship in game. It's huge, but compared to the Yamato:

Bigger, but it's quite a stretch to say it's like comparing the P.1000 Ratte to anything in WoT. The Yamato even has more guns, not just in AA guns but cannons alone. TBH, passing up things like ways to add the Ratte or H44 is just passing up more content for the game.

H-41 will probably be just fine. People think Tirpitz can be hard to kill at close range...

 

And that "twice Yamato" should tell you all you need to know why H-44 wasn't serious and couldn't be built.

Truly a big ship honestly, Imagine that ship in real life, impressive sight, but honestly quite useless to the advent of air power.

That's exactly why it could be possible. Well armored and well armed against ships, but vulnerable to torpedo bombers.

It would be the most pointless warship in the game. The target radius on a vessel of that size is absurd, it will be the first ship attacked and destroyed per.

Not for April fools, for all we know, they could make all of the Warships h-44s! problem solved.

Not necessarily. It's massive armament and huge armor just looks at anything else and says:

Nah!

Cross the T and the armour is pointless when the deck and supestructure is being targeted.

They should put the H-44 in the game for sure, just give the British Habbakuk and laugh as 10+ Lancasters bomb the H-44 into oblivion.

The irony is that in game, it's actually usually more effective to be the one getting your T crossed than the be the one crossing.

Current game mechanics put the ship with more guns to bare at a disadvantage. Don't cross the T. Be the T getting crossed.

and it also will probably be able to do the same with other ships. I think it would be awesome to add, but the limits in the game like spawn and all will be harder to merge, but I think it would be a great premium ship for the game(and yes I have already payed much on the gameXD)

Bloody hell of a forum sin for your first post. You necro'd a year old topic.

Crossing the T was really more relevant for fleet action. If your line of ships can cross their line of ships, your whole fleet can pound their lead ship into scrap while the ships behind their lead vessel can't really bring their guns to bear. In a 1 vs. 1 engagement, cross the T isn't as meaningful since the ship that can unmask all its guns also has it's side visible and is thus easily shot.

Irl, more guns on target was an advantage. WoWs, however, is fought at close ranges, typcially inside the immunity zones for most warships... Thus, armor is less effective against equivalent ships.

The H-44 actually wasn't a very good design. The armor was actually quite lacking for a ship of that size, the Montana's and Yamato's being better. Frankly, I would much rather see an American Tillman design featured into the game, one of which had an armor belt 18 inches thick.
