    Dreadnought Era Appreciation Thread

    Looking forward to the russian dreadnoughts, particularly Gangut and Knyaz Suvorov. Yeah, I know the KS never existed, but it still looks really interesting. I will say that I would've preferred them to go with the Imperatritsa Mariya over Gangut to add some variety (and a royally good name). I also hope they eventually add Borodino in its historical configuration.

    Can anyone pass me the link to download the latest version of the unpacker? 'Cause I can't find it.

    It feels like Königgratz all over again...

    This makes Turenne worse then, since they had an actual dreadnought design available. Personally I'd love to have the real Radetzky, but WeeGee keeps refusing to add Predreds. About those designs, design C could be a decent Tier III if they gave it a good enough reload. However, if they decide not to add the real thing, I'd still like to have a 6x2 240mm version, just to get something that looks almost identical to the original.

    I also found some pictures of Tegetthoff with green paint. No, Viribus Unitis didn't have funnel caps and Szent Istvan also had a platform on its funnles with searchlights, so yes, it's a combo. TBH the ship's colours can be modded and the funnel cap looks OK. I'm just happy we finally get to see a Tegetthoff class battleship comming to the game. Another idea for WeeGee: Since they don't want predreadnoughts, how about, as a placeholder until they fix them, adding a ship that's almost identical to the SMS Radetzky, but with a pair of twin 240mm guns instead of the 2x2 305mm ones, so that it has a uniform battery of six twin 240mm turrets. That way the ship's a dreadnought and it can be placed at Tier III (with, say, 22 seconds reload, just like Nassau used to have).

    I'll admit I'd prefer the Prinz Eitel Friedrich to be as it was designed, but considering how utterly horrible Kaiser's fake upgrade is, the fact that the one made for Prinz Eitel Friedrich looks good is a saving grace. There's still the Mackensen itself, which could go at Tier V as a german Kongo, and Graf Spee, which could be added, I guess...

    I finally got arround to doing that. You can download it from my forum page (it's the same Bayern file). Here're a few previews: A Hull: B Hull: Also, MAJOR NEWS!!! Austro-Hungarian dreadnought SMS Viribus Unitis is comming to the game, for the moment as a german ship. Here's the link: Reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/WorldOfWarships/comments/9yhm7f/tier_4_german_battleship_viribus_unitis_dev_blog/

    If Mikasa had better accuracy and slightly more punching power, it would at least be playable. For the secondaries, they could divide the different gun calibers like they do with AA guns and give them different ranges, with the 150mm guns having 1km or 1.5km more range. Maybe they could also give them a main gun reload booster consummable, or really good accuracy at close range to make them better brawlers (I mean, they were literally made to brawl). Maybe also give them close-range torpedoes like Mutsu's.

    They gave us Mikasa and that's it. It was terrible, they never fixed it and now not only remains terrible, but also put an end to any chances to get more predreds. Not even the anniversary of the russian revolution and a chance to add the Potemkin persuaded them to fix predreds.

    Dreadnought and Bellerophon use the same guns and ammo of Ishizuchi. They were forshadowing the entire UK BB line from the beginning and we didn't notice. The good thing is that, say, HMS Explodable (formerly HMS Invincible) with 4x2 305mm guns and a 25 or 24 seconds reload time can work at Tier III with those shells.

    What they did with the St. Louis class is quite strange considering that the US navy had considerable experience with both armored and protectd cruisers by that point. Had it been their first, OK, but it was one of the last designs they made for either of those types.

    Ishizuchi - Is she worth it?

    Use HE. Sure, AP can pen cruisers, but HE will wreck them, disabling modules and starting fires. The same goes for destroyers, and when you're talking about a huge ship with no torpedo protection, being able to wreck the engines, steering gears and/or torpedo launchers of destroyers and cruisers sets you apart from most other battleships. I've been able to deal with, on one ocasion, three destroyers that were chasing me. Every time one of them got too close a full salvo right on its face was enough to make them break off their pursuit.
