    Japanese and German T9-10 BB-s

    nah, anyway the whole thing I was trying to prove is probably bullsht, or even if it isn't it doesn't matter, there's not much we can do but at least the whole deal made me continue the german line, which I stopped at Yorik and didn't feel like continuing, instead of the russians, where Moskva is probably not my playstyle

    German AP

    I read online that German AP doesn't have the best penetration ever, it is really not working for me on Hipper. It only works on like full broadside. From Hipper up to Hindenburg does the AP stays the same?

    Idk, I guess I am bad at island hugging, sure if I happen to find a spot where I can stealth fire I am trying to use it, but I usually move on quite quickly because well the enemy goes out of range and even DM can't fire through most of the islands everywhere just in a certain direction. And when you are island hugging you are a sitting duck, I think you are getting back just as much damage as you deal. Fake damage or not, somebody has to kill the BB-s too. Hitting enemy cruisers with DM can be quite difficult if they "don't want to get hit", and hitting DD-s is just based on luck :D And when the enemy is close enough to reliably hit it, then you are close enough for them too. Idk, about Hindenburg: does it has the same AP as Hipper does? I have been playing very aggressive for a couple of games, and for the god of it I couldn't score a single citadel.

    In the near future I won't be playing in competitive scenes like CB, but sometimes in the future HIV might be my 3rd T10 cruiser then.

    I am not talking about a specific game. It is my general experience that T10 Japanese and German BB-s are quite hard to deal damage with HE (except Hindy, HIV with IFHE, and the two newcomer tardy Russians Kronshtadt and Stalingrad, which are not exactly easy to obtain), meanwhile other nations T10 BB-s are melting, and I was wondering if it is ok. (according to the statistics it is not)

    Ok, again I don't know much about clan battles, but in random you won't get in 6km to a Yamato. And I guess angling in a Yamato isn't unheard of. Then he has 6 accurate 460mm guns that will murder you in max 3 salvo, you can't deal damage to it with AP, and because it is a Yamato neither with HE. I already sold Ibuki, it is incredibly squishy and I don't think I would like Zao, I cannot tolerate 36sec turret turn time. I was grinding to Moskva before, but I changed my mind again, Dimitri Donskoi is a horrible ship. It has 12 180mm guns, with 12,5 sec reload time, and 10% fire chance (you need IFHE to do worth anything). I mean cmon, the told to be quite bad Buffalo has 12 203mm guns, with 12 sec reload time and 16% fire chance (you don't need IFHE). It is tankier too and turns better, also it does have a decent AA. I can hardly tolerate Dimitri Donskoi's 870m turning circle radius, I don't want to find out what the 1050m, on Moskva is like (meanwhile still not being able to deal decent damage to the aforementioned two T10 BB-s). I don't want to have all ships, only a second T10 cruiser next to my DM, as they are stupidly expensive to maintain, and I don't play with premium. I am not playing the island hugger DM, IMO it is quite lame, rather out in the open when I can WASD magic all I want without constantly bumping into islands. From 15+km with DM's quite good maneuverability you can dodge shells quite reliably, and even with DM-s parachute shells, you can hit BB-s quite reliably from that range too. So my main targets are BB-s, with DM shells it is quite hard hitting cruisers or destroyers. Sure I still usually go close to capture points but I mostly all I do is radar, and hit the DD a couple of lucky times, usually I need others to shoot it down. Sure everything can be burned down, but there's a big difference if it takes 3 min or 10. Sure, every single BB needs survivability for its role, but interestingly enough the two T10 BB-s that have this anti-HE armor are the most played ones. And again for some mysterious reason the only decent cruiser that can pen this is the most played T10 cruiser. God works in mysterious ways...

    The 32mm bow section makes up about 10% of both ships, so it is not exactly easy to hit as well. And there is a big difference in being able to constantly damage a for example a Conqueror (meanwhile it is on fire as well), or against a Yamato you can only light it on fire then, idk go out for a smoke, come back, light it on fire again, repeat. Anyways when in Rome, do as the Romans do, I'll grind to Hindenburg as well. I am still at Hipper, but yesterday in a game when I was against a G. Kurfürst I swear I was dealing more dmg to it than I ever did in my DM.

    Idk, again I don't have either, but HIV has a larger circle turning radius than Hindy, and I guess that is supposed to mean it is larger too? (Since Moskva is like the largest cruiser and it has an unbearable 1050m turning circle radius.) And both has ~12 sec rudder shift time (which doesn't really matter since you probably gonna run double rudder). But I guess with the speed booster HIV can be good at running away.

    Well yes, what else cruisers are gonna do? Praying doesn't make the Yamato go away.

    I am not playing CB-s, but then why not Hindenburg? Can't it also pen 50mm? And from what I read HIV is kinda lackluster.

    I don't care if some cruisers can cit Yamato (Des Moines clearly can't I was testing it, from like 8km, so probably other 203mm cruisers can't as well, or yeah again maybe it is theoretically possible), but still my point is that 95% of the time cruisers won't cit Yamato, because in that distance they are already dead. They are gonna spam HE from relatively far and be very inefficient. I would argue that not taking a lot less HE damage leads to longer survival than a super fast heal. I am lacking damage in those situations, cuz as I said 203mm HE is semi-useless against T10 Japanese and German BB-s. Hah I won't start BB line. You cannot imagine the suffering I went through getting the snowflakes off of my 2 ARP Kongos.

    Ok, yeah I haven't calculated it on 240mm, but I am surely not planning on getting Henry IV. And at the case of Henry IV it is a good question, if it worth 4 captain points and -3% fire chance, just to not suffer against 2 very specific BB-s. But I won't know the other side, cuz I am horrible with BB-s. That's why I came here on the forum, to gather information on what I won't get to know myself. That is what forums are for.
