Nice writeup Lert! Think it'd probably work as a T4/5 cruiser with the terrible ROF and dispersion offsetting the speed and lack of armour. Anything higher than that tier and it'd just be farming for the rest of ships without having a chance to do anything. Her sisters would work better as designed for T5 than Furious, but it'd be an interesting if underwhelming ship in the game!

 

I won't say it doesn't fit in as a quirky oddball ship since that's what we seem to be writing ADLAs about, trying to fudge the existing system to get these funky ships to somewhat work out is a tough job but you did it a fair assessment. I do find the way it looked with the 2 flight decks to be wildly amusing!!! And a half-CV, half-large-light cruiser with a single 18" gun is just hilarious to think about!!! Shooting 18" shells at DDs with WG's dispersion... You'd have to get a medal if you ever manage it!!

I agree with the T4/5 Cruiser designation.

Those times when you land 2* Cits on anything at that tier would be hilarious :playing:

But the frustration factor would be massive.

I knew she was weak & large but bigger than Kongo is bigger than I realised, probably too crippling an issue to ever get ingame.

So it's like the Moskva of T5....

 

Leave it to the brits to design oddball ships.

It would definitely be an interesting addition if it was added in, its pre-planned form, and full (Final) Carrier Conversion form would probably fit best in the game, since the middle configurations would be awkward to balance ingame.

Surely the dogfighter would look more like this:

Glaciers are more fun to ride though.

Back on topic.

 

The ship would be a blast to try and get to work, antithesis of Atlanta if she were in gun ship form. If Furious ended up as a Premium I would buy it in any form not a CV, speaking of...

 

Optional modules to equip her as a plane ramp/single turret(planes would just splash dead in the water after a time period:amazed: RIP), a full CV or a full gunship. This is ridiculous and would never happen but... It would be cool as [edited].

Damn, that's frosty.

 

But a great write up on the Furious.  Someone already mentioned it but it really is a KV-2 on the water and must be played as such.  This is not the boat for you Mr/Mrs Min-Max Uber grinder.   This is the boat for the player who has reached the boiling point and no longer gives any farks and rather than clubbing seals with the Nikolai, puts on their derp pants and yells "Come at me Bro!". 

 

I seriously think this ship would make a great ranked battles reward ship.

The secondaries are kind of interesting.

 

It's a 140mm gun, not the same ones as the IJN 140mm, but very similar in specs.

Nice write-up Lert....I agree with the tier 5 Cruiser crowd.....Yes, she has big guns but I think a Furutaka would tear it to pieces, to say nothing about the Mansk, or K-berg

Any of those would have a serious mountain of hitpoints to chew through though, and if you can land a hit with those 18" guns .... Plus, big as she is, Furious can haul and dance.

The more I think about it, if I was in a Furious class CA(?), of the 3 I mentioned, I think the K-berg would scare me the most....long range...9 gun tubes...rapid fire.....light her up and switch to AP....lol

This is one of those ships that I really just don't have an opinion on.  I'd definitely consider it a cruiser rather than a battleship, but tier?  Uhg.  It would be worse than Mikasa.  I can't envision them putting the Furious in game as a gunship.

Considering her muzzle energy is on par with Yamato (especially if they give her the super charge) then she stands a better chance to bow-cit Stalin's tugboat-o-war than anything else Nikolai sees.
