Yes, there have been other spottings, though I have yet to see it.  My best recent spotting has been of a Mikasa that was won last Tuesday in iChase's twitch giveaway.

It's a stripped down New Mexico with (admittedly nice-looking) fancy paint.

Better watch out, or Big_Spud and InvaderZim are going to jump in the thread, attack you and say you know nothing about USN BBs because you dare call her that.

And more health. I've only seen them a few times, but played right they've proven surprisingly tough to sink.

Oh is she heavier, too? Neat. I don't know what her AA actually looks like either, she just looks more bare than New Mexico.

Because its a different class of ship if I am correct... it does have more hp, but its guns are the 45cals rather than the 50cal of the same width on the NM, so less shell velocity, more hp.

Yes she's Pennsylvania class, which preceded the New Mexico class.

Should be a decently fun ship by the looks of it, at least for a T6 USN bb XD

Also Jesus Christ, stop making Arizona threads.

 

But not one on the  ARP Ashigara.

 

 

the armor on the  Arizona is 24-343mm which is as good as the New Mex but 57000hp is as much as a stock North Carolina. Cant wait to own one

No I detected your sarcasm. That doesn't make this thread any less pointless though.

The more I think about it, the more I believe that it's a "German National Flavor" put into the Arizona.

German BB are rumored to have great Survivability (HP/Armor/Fire Resistance) but weaker Guns.  The Arizona seems to fit most criterias.

If so, it's going to be great driving one.

She is not going to have the multiple redundant armor plates and turtleback that German battleships have. But she does have a more complex and heavier armor scheme than the IJN ships use.

The NM has a turtle back.

Does Arizona? At the thicknesses of German turtlebacks?

 

I'm just saying they may not be completely comparable.

<--- tag says I cant talk about Arizona

 

The NM turtle back is comparable to German BBs from the same era.

So let's continue talking about the newer design as if it's relevant to the older one then.

As this thread is delving into technical details of unreleased ships I am going to see myself out. However, your ignorance amuses me, I always get a kick out of people that dont know what they are taking about trying to push incorrect opinions.
