    Public Test - Server Restart

    Captains, Due to very high demand for aircraft carriers we see a lot of non-typical team compositions on Public Test. We're working on a hot fix at the moment and aim to deploy it with server restart, which is planned for 16:00-17:00 UTC / 17:00 - 18:00 CET. The changes will be: • Carriers will be limited to 3 per team; • PvP battles will be complemented by battleships, destroyers and cruisers bots to emulate full 12x12 battles. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your enthusiasm trying out new carriers. Action Stations!
  3. Captains, Please be aware that we will have to perform a server restart tomorrow morning: Date: December 29, Start: 05:00 UTC / 06:00 CET, Duration: Approximately 40 minutes. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Action Stations!
  4. When do we get the Prizes we won on the #MerryLittleShipmas Contest, It states before 22nd December, but I never got mine.

    Prinz campaign tier 6 silver ship perma camos

    What he said :) The camos are special New Year ones.
  6. For two of these I have to say just "Wait for the announcement", sorry, but cannot spoil the details right now. As for the ships considered "Premium", Jean Bart, Salem, Musashi and Kronshtadt indeed do count :)
  7. The update server is not up yet, as far as I can see, might play a role... But in general try to switch tot he Game Center.
  8. The rewards for the 0.7.11 PT are being set up, they should come tomorrow :)

    Naval Underdogs: Poland - Discussion Thread

    To add to that, the torpedo was launched by a "Neger" mini-submarine (or rather micro-submarine): Though exactly who scored the hit is disputed - German side attributed the hit to Walther Gerhold, while the British side to Karl Heinz Potthast. Potthast was captured after he dozed off (out of exhaustion and likely oxygen deprivation). In any case the ORP Dragon was the biggest of the "human torpedo" victims, followed by a Hunt-class destroyer escort and three minesweepers.
  10. One step at a time :) Let's first make sure it works before adding more ships ;)

  12. According to this Navweaps article, Not Much™. Though the effect of the muzzle blast to those on the ship would definitely feel like that :)
  13. The biggest issue there was that the PoW was also the only ship to have a truly modern AA suite... That could not work anymore due to loss of central power and ship list. Repulse did not have that much on her own and the destroyers were not of much use either - it was kinda like the Japanese carriers at Midway. That is also why it is dangerous to draw universal conclusions from the fate of Force Z - similar attacks on transports off Guadalcanal ended with the attack planes being shredded not as much by fighter cover as by the AA guns - sacrificing ballistic performance for fully workable DP guns on destroyers was kinda worth it...
  14. Battle of Tassafaronga also seen another US cruiser lose her bow... and another almost sunk... And one sunk. USS New Orleans, lost bow all the way to #2 turret (2nd pic shows the provisional false bow that helped the ship cross Pacific). USS Minneapolis, lost bow to #1 turret: All in all the battles around the Guadalcanal were taxing for the Astoria/New Orleans class of heavy cruisers... And for US heavy cruisers in general. Consider: Pensacola class: 2 ships. USS Pensacola: Hit by a torpedo at Tassafaronga, suffered from a major fire that caused detonations of ammunition in no.3 gunhouse. Back in action almost exactly after a year, in November 1943. USS Salt Lake City: Moved in front of Boise at Cape Esperance after the latter suffered major damage, suffered three large caliber hits. Four months of repairs. Northampton Class: 6 ships. USS Northampton: Sunk at Tassafaronga. USS Chicago: Hit by torpedo at Savo Island, repaired only to be sunk by air attack at Rennell Island (last bigger battle of the Guadalcanal campaign) USS Chester: Hit by submarine during the Solomons campaign, year of repairs. Portland Class: 2 ships. USS Portland: Hit and disabled by torpedo during the 1st Night Battle of Guadalcanal (#ThisDayInHistory 76 years ago). Half a year of repairs. Astoria class: 7 ships USS Astoria: Sunk at Savo Island. subsequently class renamed to New Orleans, as 2 more ships of the same class were lost there as well. USS Quincy: Sunk at Savo Island. USS Vincennes: Sunk at Savo Island. USS San Francisco: Rammed by a bomber on October 12th, Heavily damaged during the 1st Night Battle by gunfire and fires 76 years ago. 3 months of repairs (by the way: This shows the difference between gunfire damage and torpedo damage - while the San Francisco was utterly wrecked, her hull was not compromised, making the repairs far easier). USS New Orleans: Lost bow at Tassafaronga. USS Minneapolis: Lost bow at Tassafaronga. Out of 15 pre-war heavy cruisers the US Navy had, 5 were sunk and 7 heavily damaged in the battles around Guadalcanal...
