  1. Fan made Italian tech tree

    Ironically I have my big submarine book back in the states however I’m fairly certain there was at least some ability for pattern setting. The French went entirely the other direction and I’m sure the player base will love their solution as it will probably be very game mechanics friendly.

    Skill for Germans and British but luck for Italians? The 600 series where generally good minus the cheap Freon replacement that tried to kill crews. At least they where able to get their torpedoes on target unlike the surface ships. Of course if tier IV is a condottiere I want it to be a certain one. So my opinion is very suspect.

    Axum had to have had one of the most effective salvos ever. I think another submarine managed multiple hits earlier. In the name of tier IX freexp cruisers being something else how about this Impero? It has twelve 152/55 rifles, obviously a cruiser.
  4. From what an NA user stated WG had their buttocks handed to them by the archives. So I guess they are taking their ball and going home.
  5. Can we have axis vs. allies events?

    "Dude it was only a joke" excuse incoming. Anyways I am going to go visit the ship with the best concealment ever in a couple of weeks.

    The Italians never switched sides. The treaty was specifically written to avoid Italy coming to the defense of Austria much less aid Austria in an offensive war effort. At that point it was null and void.

    @phoenix_jz posted this all over the NA forums. A new book with some hints of an Impero carrier conversion and other things. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/167195-italian-carriers/?do=findComment&comment=3956009 http://www.betasom.it/forum/index.php?showtopic=46929
  8. Italian Destroyers

    2+ years away easily. Even then the tier VII probably will either be the original OTO project that led to Tashkent or Navigatori class which most will find to be an XP wall. With the usual WG dark horse of let's gimmick a ship up a tier. Navigatori will have 3 x 2 120/50 with what will be considered bad angles and very light torpedo armament of 2 x 3 533mm launchers. Maybe the Maestrale Potenziato proposal which just means the same 3 x 2 120/50 except with two turrets forward of the bridge. In reality given WG's love for overtiering Italian cruisers so far it may be the ultimate gimmick ship. Imagine a poor man's Ognevoi at tier VII with radar. The destroyer Legionario. WG will give it radar, heal and the cue ball consumable that was mentioned as being tested on Jean Bart to justify it being tier VII.

    The scartometer was the device used to measure the splash of the shell to figure out range between the shell and the target. Obviously it wasn't very effective in practical use from my understanding. The earlier systems used water tubes to determine pitch of the ship iirc. I believe it is once again in Friedman's work where this is talked about as comparison to USN love of all things gyroscope. Otherwise I only know about the system in reference to the Italian Dalek. https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apparecchio_di_punteria_generale Basically as you stated Littorio class was the only class in the RM that didn't require to be at the top of the roll to fire. It would be interesting to note if a later ship class such as the Capitani Romani had this limitation. ========================== This is more of a joke and not serious. In a long distant future WG might be able to spin out two cruiser lines for Italy. Garibaldi VII, Ciano VIII, Spanish Ansaldo 152 IX, Spanish Ansaldo 203 variant TX Bolzano VII, Zara VIII, Spanish Ansaldo early variant TX, Ansaldo 254/55 BC TX.

    Speaking of expensive I'm about to send money to my uncle and I'm tempted to add a little bit of money with instructions to have my cousins grab a couple of books since they are coming over in a couple of months. I still kind of want to get Quando tuonano i grossi calibri - Punta Stilo 9 luglio 1940 despite the controversy.
  11. Fan made Italian tech tree

    DO WANT! That pretty much fits with my understanding. Negatives usually leave out that the comparison is against systems that are developed later. ;) Russians didn't like how the system calculated angle to target(?), took years to develop a new one but act like it was always better. Late 1930s optical FCS vs 1944 all radar FCS, etc. So it definitely states there was no automated RPC? Rather odd since Friedman or someone else talks about Italians showing off an automated RPC system to the USN in the 20s but it being woefully under powered. Follow the pointer has always been a detraction for Littorio class. Does it talk at all about the scartometer? That was pretty much judged to be a complete waste, afaik. And no automated input from Gufo on Littorio? I could of sworn I read it stated that the Germans had let slip this was all done automatically on their ships while demanding a princely sum for access to the relevant materials from the Italians. That R2D2 on II turret doesn't come cheap.

    Yeah it is a double edged sword. Abruzzi will lose that armor strake and Roma will possibly have a piece of armor reduced in value. Although as a premium it may be immune. I’m more miffed about their attitude on HE given all the benefits given to Japan, German and British HE. In other news it is Saturday and I’m watching sette giorni showing a story on ed sheeren instead of Chiara Giallonardo and Venezia.
  13. Fan made Italian tech tree

    I’m going to go watch Linea Verde now. It’s supposed to be Venezia this week.

    Who’s complaining?

    Well the case of where WG is pulling some information from is partially solved. https://forum.worldofwarships.com/topic/149237-a-criticism-of-wgs-handling-of-roma/?do=findComment&comment=3563338
