    HMS Exeter's return

    Thank you, I just got her! Time to hunt some commerce raiders!

    HMS Exeter's return

    Does anyone know when HMS Exeter will be back in the game/shop? I'm dying to get my hands on her.

    Iowa AA is missing

    Checked on Navsource, NC never had anything other than Oerlikons from the get go, no Brownings or Chicago Pianos and she only received her first Bofors mounts in the November of '42.

    Iowa AA is missing

    My screenshots are all of C hull, which has been stripped of AA.

    Iowa AA is missing

    The B hull has all the single Oerlikons, minus the 3 on Turret #1 and the Bofors mount on Turret #3.

    Iowa AA is missing

    I have observed long ago that Iowa is missing a ton of Oerlikon mounts, by the end of the War she had 19 quad Bofors mounts and 52 single Oerlikon mounts, however in the game once you hit C hull, she only has 32 dual Oerlikon mounts. I ask why? The Alabama has the exact number of 52 single Oerlikon mounts and they're great just the way they are, so why doesn't Iowa boast the same historically accurate loadout that the Alabama does? Iowa is missing: -2 Oerkilon mounts on her bow -2 Oerlikon mounts directly fore of her foremost two Bofors mounts, just in front of Turret #1 -3 Oerlikon mounts on top of Turret #2 -2/2 Oerlikon mounts on each side, 1/1 just behind 5" guns 51 and 52 (her foremost dual 5" mounts) For those that do not know, on the NC-class, SoDak-class and the Iowa-class, their 10 5" mounts were 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 on her starboard and 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 on her port side, ie: 51, 52, 53, etc. the 5 indicating the caliber of the guns. And 1/1 Oerlikon mounts just fore of the two lateral Mark 37 gun directors on the two sides of the front funnel -9 Oerlikon mounts just aft of her #3 Turret Alabama's AA layout has been rendered in a historically accurate manner, Iowa's should be as well.

    American battleships' Gun Director bug

    Why do the Mark 37 gun directors (4 can be found on most battleships and on destroyers like the Fletcher, Benson, etc.) on American battleships turn with the main batteries? The Mark 37s guided the dual purpose 5" guns. It was only the Mark 38s that guided the main batteries (the ones on the two highest points of US BBs: can be observed on Iowa-class, Montana-class, North Carolina-class, South Dakota-class). Wargaming only got the Alabama's directors right as they don't turn with the main batteries, only the Mark 38s do. Although it would be cool if the Mark 37s did turn with the Mark 28 5" dual turrets on BBs.

    Alabama bug

    Man, it would be cool if the Mk 37s turned with the 5"38s, not to mention the 5"ers' turrets would rise from 0 degrees to about 20, and from 10 to about 60 when enemy planes touch that 7.2km marker.

    Alabama bug

    Strange because on other US BBs, including the Massachusetts in screenshots the Mk 37s turn with the main guns (picture below)

    Alabama bug

    I do.

    Alabama bug

    I possess the American Tier 8 Premium battleship, the USS Alabama, I have played many many games with her seeing as how it's my favorite ship inside and outside of the game. I have observed that the forward and aft Mark 37 Fire Directors do not turn with the guns towards the target as they would on other battleships like the North Carolina, Iowa, etc.It's a small graphic issue, but it has been bugging me for quite a while. I hope that this issue will get a fix.

  15. Is there a book or any source material on what the Royal Navy thought of the South Dakota and the Alabama while they were attached to Home Fleet?
