    IOWA needs BUFFS and COMPLETION

    Iowa in the current meta has been completely powercreeped as many other ships in the USN and IJN lines, whom have had received periodical 'buffs', but the Iowa has been left out, minus the lowering of the citadel. First, she needs here complete 1945 anti-air armaments, the Oerlikon mounts missing from her final 1945 loadout, as seen in the pics below for complete historical accuracy to be added to the C-hull Secondly, her base rudder shift from 22.5 seconds to 18 seconds which with subsequent hulls lowered further to 13 seconds -120m to her turning circle radius from 920m to a new 800m TCR Buff torpedo protection from 25% to 40% Buff base concealment from 16.2km to 14.5km And finally her sigma adjusted from 1.9 to 2.0

    TIME TO ADD: USS WASHINGTON (BB-59)

    The Enterprise also has access to the 6th upgrade and it's doing perfectly fine in Tier 8.

    It would be a 7km radar

    TIME TO ADD: USS WASHINGTON (BB-59)

    After almost 5 years, countless ships, not to mention pointless spammy paper ships being added. It is high HIGH time that the USS Washington is also added to the game as a Tier VIII (8) Premium battleship. Not for Coal, not for Steel, nor for "le Credit Card". But as a tough campaign reward accomplishing tasks that can only be progressed with American battleships tier 5-10. For her characteristics, a carbon copy of North Carolina, all her stats, armor, sigma, stealth, rudder shift, all of it. Except for 3 things: 1) A much more powerful close range AA defense, as she had in 1945 55 single, 8 dual and 1 quad Oerlikon mounts. 2) Access to a 6th Upgrade slot, like the Enterprise, to able to equip the USS BB Accuracy Upgrade. 3) A 4th consumable after Repair, Heal and Spotter/Fighter, a 7 kilometer, 60 second Radar consumable. The Campaign would be available for 5 months, but after that, if you didn't finish it, you will never be able to get the Washington under any circumstances.

    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

    Thanks for the replies! Have a nice one, I hope this will be brought to their attention soon eough!

    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.
