  8. The first part of a series about the hunt for the Bismarck. The video is sponsored by Wargaming. Quote video text box: During World War II, the Bismarck was the pride of the German navy - and the nightmare of Great Britain. It was enormous, overpowered, and a constant threat to the seas. So when they got word that the Bismarck had mobilized, the British raced to stop it.
  9. Hi, My first post! I´ve been building a tech tree for SMS/KMS and the Royal Navy. I´ve been trying to incorporate Battlecruisers in a way that makes them competetive in the game. Due to real ship design evolution I see no place for BC in tier 9-10, barely making it to tier 8 acctually. I also made a suggestion for how to handle heavy cruisers in the Royal Navy line. Some comments: Seydlitz as first premium for Germany, only ship in class, historically famous after the battle of Jutland. Deutchland class Panzershiff, I´ve classified it as at heavy cruiser, should be in the game but I don´t know if tier 5 is the right place? After the presentation of the Royal Navy light cruiser line I´ve tried to incorporate the heavy cruisers of Royal Navy in it. The Royal Navy acctually did not have that many heavy cruisers. Ive placed the York class before the County class (not historically correct) due to the amount of guns. York have 6 8-inch guns and County (and subclasses) 8 8-inch guns. Royal Navy BBs, so much to choose in the low tiers, made to lines to tier 6. Royal Navy BCs, I have the Admiral class in the line and Hood as premium. Hood should be the first BC in game as a premium, a way to present a new shipytype (yeah I know there are BCs in the Jap BB line but I mean as a "real BCs") So, comments? should I never post again?

    German Battleship Line,

    I am thinking of starting on the German Battleship line. What are the pros and cons of this line of ships and would the Cruiser line be a better choice? Are they enjoyable to play?

    Starting the German Cruiser line. Any tips?

    Hi guys, I was thinking of diving back into the game and making a start into the German Cruiser line. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for someone who's used to playing US Cruisers (I usually play the Omaha, Marblehead and Cleveland) for low, mid and higher tiers? I want to get an idea of how German cruisers differ from their US counterparts. Many thanks and fair seas!
  12. I wasn't playing ships for the Emden event and to be honest I wasn't to buy a tier 8 BB when it was sold so I can't see any chance of me starting the German tree, if it means all the captain retraining needs to be done in coop. I think it would be sensible for WG to find a Tier 2-4 Premium of some sort (preferably a CA) so new players can get on with these the lines?

    Just a few newbie questions

    Hello anybody, It was back in 2010 when I played a lot of NavyField. Since then I've pretty much ignored ship games (even though I have great interest in ships) but came back for this - and I love it! I have, however, a few questions: 1. I chose the German tree. I really like their navy (and they have been the most important WW I navy in the game currently). Having unlocked the light cruiser Karlsruhe I realized how bad it is (Dresden seemed best so far). Is there a way to earn the 18.000 xp needed for the Konigsberg on another ship or do I have to grind it (making around 300 per lost and 600 per won match it takes ages)? 2. Is there any information when British ships will be released for the game? They are my favourite navy - and the most important. Thank you. Best Regards, Jag

    Allies vs. Axis Battle-mode

    I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see this battle-mode implemented. I'm not the only one who would like to see a US-only team vs. a Japan-only team, etc.
  15. Hello chaps. I apologise for leaving an official suggestion here, but I could not find the appropriate area on the EU forum (though the US forums seem to have a 'suggestions' section). When the Russians came out, I was pleasantly surprised to see that all First World War Russian ships had the Ensign of the Imperial Russian Navy, instead of that of the Soviet era. I thought this was a really nice touch and a nod to the history and service of those individual vessel classes. (It may also have been done because it's the same flag used by the modern Russian navy.) The Germans, however, did not receive the same treatment. I think it would be a very nice touch if German ships in service before 1918 flew the ensign of the Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial German Navy) shown below instead of the WW2-based red Kreigsmarine flag which WW1 vessels never flew: The affected ships would, by the time this thread began, probably be the Dresden, the Kolburg, and the Karlsrue, As the German tech tree expands, certainly we'll see more vessels that served in that time period. What do you chaps think? Do leave a message.

    the upcoming cruisers

    I did some research on the Dresden class being added in the next patch, and here are it's historical stats, which I hope give some idea of what it's going to be like. If you have any information on any other new cruiser, please put it in this thread. Tier: 2/3 Class: Cruiser Displacement: 4268t Propulsion: 15,000 HP Speed: 24 knots Primary armament: 8x 10.5 cm Range: 12.7 km Secondary armament: 8x 5.2 cm Torpedoes: 2x 410 mm twin Notes: while somewhat lacking in artillery, it does have a very long range for tier 2, and some light torpedoes. Very similar to the Chester.

    Suggestion that can work out

    Please forgive me if this question offends you: Can you like please consider putting German submarines in game instead of destroyers (you don't have to give them diving ability's) just to have them in game would be great even if they were only be available to sail on surface,I though since Destoryers have "smoke" ability you can give submarines ability to "dive" (they become invisible to enemy for 10 seconds) with cooldown at 1 minute or less.Please don't think I am trolling or something like that I find that you do really good job, I hope we can make even game better with feedbacksAnyway I am waiting for your reply
  18. Hey everyone, to start off this topic i just gonna say that i think they should try to add germany as fast as possible heres some plans for the german battleships information info source https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_battleships_of_Germany on this wikipedia page is further information about the ships im thinking off For tier 3 SMS Kaiser For tier 4 SMS König For tier 5 SMS Bayern For tier 6 i was thinking about the bismarck For tier 7 the H39 For tier 8 the H41 For tier 9 the H43 For tier 10 the H44 These ships are mainly plans but they would be great to have in the game, also i feel like they should use the huge [edited]508mm guns H44 but give it a really long reload sothat they dont become to overpowered but they should be able to fire quit far

    Next batch of cruisers

    Hello, fellow forumites! Since I'm no expert on naval/military history, I thought I'd ask you guys about your thoughts on the Russian/Soviet cruisers. The way I understand it, is that the lower tiers will be made up of actual ships from tzarist Russia, while the higher tiers will mainly consist of blueprint Soviet ships and/or ship concepts. All is well and good so far, but what kind of cruisers are these? (I've looked up mr3awesome's thread http://forum.worldofwarships.eu/index.php?/topic/437-what-we-know-about-ships-updated-25062015/ to search for clues, but still not quite sure what to expect here.) Light cruisers or heavy cruisers? Compared to USA and Japan, what will their range, armor, speed, AA protection, etc. be? Any thoughts, or is it still 100% speculation at this point? I'm quite interested in heavy cruisers, but I might have to wait for German ships for that? - BabyAdmiral.

    Germany folder in WoW

    Crew pictures in res folder... Anyone has seen these pictures???
  21. Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Of course Germany did also built heavy cruisers so here we go: Admiral Hipper class: After the rejection the Versailles treaty Germany signed the Anglo-German Naval Agreement, allowing Germany 51000 tons of heavy cruisers. These were splitted between 3 cruisers (Admiral Hipper, Blücher [sunk 1940] and Prinz Eugen) to be armed with 203mm guns in 4 twin turrets and 2, the Seydlitz (failed aircraft carrier refit) and the Lützow (sold to Russia before completion in 1939) with 150mm guns in 4 triple turrets. The first batch (Admiral Hipper and Blücher) was 202 m long, 21,3m beam and 7,7m draft, displacing 18200 tons, while the second batch (Prinz Eugen, Seydlitz and Lützow) was 215m long, 21,8m beam, 7,2m draft and had 18400 tons displacement. The engines produced 132000 shp and enabled speeds up to 32 knots (Second batch had 136000 shp and 33,5 knots top speed). 6x2x105mm DP guns formed the secondary battery. Short range AA was composed of 12x37mm and 8x20mm. Later 4 37mm guns were removed and 20 20mm guns were added. In late 1944 the remaining 3,7cm SK C/33 guns were replaced by 14x40mm Bofors. In 1945 only the Admiral Hipper and Prinz Eugen were still operational. Prinz Eugen had 20x40mm Flak28 (German name for the Bofors) and 18 20mm guns while Admiral Hipper had 16x40mm and 14x20mm. Additionally this class carried 4x3x533 torpedo tubes. The armored belt had a thickness between 70 and 80mm. The class had 2 armored decks, one 12-30mm and the main one 20-50mm thick. The conning tower was protected by 50-150mm and the turrets by 70-105mm of Wotan armor. Admiral Hipper: ONI information Picture Prinz Eugen: ONI information Picture In WoWs: Solid cruisers. Mobile, and with good guns and advanced fire control (better than the allied one, but optical and therefore not good at night fighting) you can expect accurate guns and a solid platform where said firepower is mounted on, but not a tank. The torpedos are the standard German G7a (40 knots speed, 8 km range, expect speed buffed to around 55 knots) so nothing to get excited about. The firing arc should be better than on the Japanese cruisers. The German are lacking possible ships suitable for T7. I checked WGs preliminary German tree and they either over-tier ships compared to the current tech trees or make stuff up. I can find no info on the “Super Eugen” for example.Therefore I would recommend making the 150mm armed version a T7. 12x150mm is nearly equal to the Mogami (soon T8 so making the 150mm Hipper T7 seems reasonable). The standard Hipper makes a good T8. However, the Prinz Eugen is a little better, but not better enough to justify making her T9. So therefore I would recommend using the Prinz Eugen as the T8 and making the Blüchner (first batch ship sunk in 1940) a premium. It would lack the upgraded AA and is therefore be a little worse, making it a good T8 premium. Deutschland-class: Now here things get complicated. These ships were initially classified Armored ships (Panzerschiff), the British referred to them as pocket battleships and the Germans reclassified them as heavy cruisers in 1940. Now to the ship itself. Since the Versailles treaty allowed the construction of a replacement for the aged armored ships (battleships with less than 10000 tons displacement) in 1922 first thoughts about this were made. Several designs were considered basically either strong armor but low speed or higher speed and weaker armor. In the end it was decided to go with later idea in 1929. A 182m long hull with 20,6m-21,6m beam, displacing 14500 tons (10000 officially) was fitted with two triple 280mm (11 inch) guns (2.5 rpm) and 8 15cm guns in single mounts. Two quadruple torpedo tubes were mounted at the stern. Initially AA consisted of 3x1x88mm guns from the first world war. Between 1938 and 1940 these were replaced by newer 105 mm Flak (DP) in dual turrets. Additionally 4x37mm Flak and 10x20mm guns. The AA was constantly improved up to 6x40mm Bofors, 8x37mm and 33 20 mm Flak. Armor was on the level of the Admiral Hipper class and the Deutschland-class was capable of 28,3 knots. In early 1945 the remaining 2 ships were providing ground support fire at the Eastern front which both the Germans and Russians deemed effective. According to one source the Russians were shelled so hard they thought the Germans were using a new Wunderwaffe or the V1 flying bombs. Picture ONI Information In WoWs: Basically a battlecruiser in the size of a light cruiser (Cleveland for example). That's why she was called pocket battleship. Although the 11 inch guns are weaker than your average battlecruiser it is stronger than any other cruiser in the game. The torpedoes have a limited arc of fire (like the Japanese) and the armor is light. Speed is low for a cruiser and you would have trouble keeping up with the action sometimes but you don't need to get as close as other cruisers. You cannot screen as effective against destroyers but you are a bigger threat to Battleships. T9 at most (partially because there is an improved version as a possible T-10) P-Class: An improved version of the Deutschland-class, part of the Z-Plan. Bigger, faster, better protected. 230m long, 26m beam and nearly 26000 tons displacement. The same main battery kept it's calibre and layout but was supposed to receive a newer version of the guns with a longer barrel used on the Scharnhorst class with a reload speed of 17 seconds. (other sources say that no changes were planned). Speed was calculated with 33-35 knots. The armored deck was thickened to 100 mm, the belt to 120mm. As torpedo armament 6 submerged tubes were considered. The 15 cm Secondary batteries were reduced to 2 dual turrets above the 11 inch guns. 4x105mm, and 4x37mm were the planned air defense. Picture In WoWs: If WG would pull out a 1945 hull version this would work as a T10. Throw in some 30mm or 40mm anti aircraft guns, or even a couple 55mm Gerät 58 you could make this a formidable opponent for everyone. The DPM would be weak (half a Des Moines) but your alpha damage and penetration would be stronger than any other cruiser. Think about all the sweet citadel penetrations against other cruisers. 600mm penetration should even do the trick against most battleships. This becomes more relevant when WG fixes the armor of some ships and when the AP nerf in 3.1 becomes active. Also you could play your range to your advantage. Expect at least average accuracy. It would certainly be an unique addition to the game and spice things up. Also you could tank some damage with your hp. My tech tree proposal so far
  22. Part 1 Part 2 Today we will be looking at the post WWI light cruisers. Since there is more information available about the actually build cruisers this article will be a little more detailed than the previous posts. I hope you don't mind. After losing the first world war Germany was bound by the Versailles treaty. The production of new ships was strictly limited as well as the composition of the fleet. The Reichsmarine (German Navy 1921-1935) was allowed six cruisers with a limitation of 6000 tons displacement. Ships were only to be replaced after 15-20 years, depending on class. No development of armament technology was allowed. Emden: After founding the Navy in 1921 it was soon decided that a training ship was needed to teach seamanship. The design was inspired by the Cöln class (1914) but never intended to participate in combat. The armament should have consisted of 4x2x150mm but the Allied military commission denied permission to develop the dual turrets. Therefore Emden was fitted with 8x1x150mm guns (2 at the bow, 4 midships and 2 aft), surplus from the first world war and 2x2x503mm torpedo tubes(4x2 was intended). After four years the ship was completed in 1925 and went on various cruises around the world. In 1933 the coal fired boilers were replaced with oil fired ones. Speed remained at 29 knots. Additionally 4x2 533mm torpedo tubes replaced the two old launchers. AA consisted of 2 88mm guns, a third was added in 1934. Between 1938 and 1945 a total of 9x37mm and 6x20mm anti-air guns were installed. A refit featuring 4 of the 150mm dual turret from the Zerstörer 1936A was never realized. Picture In WoWs: Basically a Phoenix or a Kuma. Little to none armor, okayish guns and a couple torpedoes. Not bad, but nothing to get excited about. The gun upgrade could be included to increase your broadside punch. Königsberg (K-Class): Germany's first combat cruisers after the great war. Designed to bring a serious punch to the battle and good speed in mind armor protection was sacrificed as well as stability (one ship nearly broke apart in a typhoon). Engine power was rated 65000 shp (shaft horsepower) but was exceeded to 68000 shp in trials giving 32,5 knots (32 with regular power). The intended role of the K class was scouting for a main fleet so two of the three turrets (3x3x150mm) (this time the allies allowed development of a new turret design) were aft in a superfiring position to cover a possible retreat. The special feature of the Königsberg class was the placement of the rear turrets. Placed 2m offset from the center line all guns could fire to the front, above the superstructure. This was not often done because the blast could cause damage to said superstructure. The turrets could traverse with 6-8 degrees/second. That gives a 180 degree traverse time of 22-30 seconds. The guns could be reloaded in 7.5 seconds resulting in a rate of fire of 8 rpm. Additional armament consisted of 4x3 torpedo tubes (503, 533 since 1940) and 2x1x88mm DP (3x2 later). In the 1930s the ships were modified to carry 3 Scout planes and 8x37mm as well as 8x20mm were added. Armor was light. The armored deck had a thickness of 20-40mm, the belt was 50mm, the conning tower 100mm thick. Later additional 10-14 mm of belt and 16mm deck armor were added. Schematic Picture In WoWs: A solid T5. Good firepower and mobility. The AA is mediocre at best. Although you have DP batteries and could therefore get the increase AA firepower skill, most of your AA will still be short ranged. The ship would be to fragile for T6. Also the design is quite unique and I am looking forward to see it in-game. Leipzig-Class: After reviewing the Königsberg-Class a improved version was designed, keeping the same main battery. Two ships were ordered, the Leipzig and the Nürnberg although the Nürnberg was modified heavily and is considered a separate class by some. 177/181m long with a beam of 16,3m the ships displaced 8100/9040 metric tons. The rear turrets were positioned back at the center-line. Improvements to the engine and armor were made. Especially the Nürnberg received a new armor alloy (Wotan Hart). To sum it up, most of the armor was increased by 10-20mm. Both ships had seaplanes and 4x3 torpedo tubes (Leipzig first had 503mm, later on both ships had 533mm tubes). Leipzig had 2x1x88mm as initial AA which was later improved to 6x1x88mm, 8x37mm and 14x20mm. Nürnberg was initially fitted with 4x2x88mm 4x2x37mm and 8x20mm. This was later improved by 2x4x20mm, a new version of the 37mm guns (doubling rate of fire) and a plan to mount the 40mm Bofors guns. Between 1941 and 43 new radar as well as radar warning gear were installed. Capable of a speed of 32 knots these ships were described as exceptionally maneuverable due to a balanced rudder and a special gear to support the rudder. Leipzig: ONI Information Picture Nürnberg: ONI Information Picture In WoWs: An improvement over the Königsberg-Class. While the primary firepower doesn’t improve, the secondaries become better as well as the AA. Armor and maneuverability are increased and therefore it is a suitable T-6. 20m shorter than the Cleveland and 5 than the Aoba these ships would be the smallest T6 so far. That gives them better stealth and maneuverability compared to other T6 ships. So far they seem to have the potential to be a perfectly balanced mid tier ship. The Leipzig would be the basic hull while the Nürnberg would be the upgrade (maybe with a basic and a 1945 version) M-class: After 1933 a naval re-equipment program was considered. Several suggestions were made and in 1939 Hitler ordered the Z-Plan to be realized, which emphasized a focus on commerce raiding. One part of this plan was the M class cruisers with 6 ships. Inspired by the British Southampton and the French La Galissonnière cruiser classes the M-class should have been 183m long and with 17m beam was calculated to displace 8500 tons. Speed was 35,5 knots. The 8 150mm main guns were to be placed in 4 dual turrets (2 at the bow, two at the stern). 2x4 torpedo tubes were to be fitted as well as 2x2x88mm DP guns, 8x37mm and 4-8x20mm. An improved version of the M class was the Q class which featured more crew space, improved AA (1x2 88mm and better fire control) and 0,5 knots more speed. Schematic Credit for finding this In WoWs: Most of the new features of this class don’t give you anything in WoWs. More range for example. I see this as a sidegrade to the Leipzig class. A little less firepower but faster. Eight 5.9 inch simply won't do the trick at T7. Spähkreuzer 1938/40: Based upon the Zerstörer 1938A this was a supposed recon ship (Spähkreuzer literally means scout/recon/watching cruiser) as part of Plan Z. 22 ships were planned, which would have been a hybrid between destroyers and light cruisers capable of 35,5 knots. The initial design was supposed to be 152m long and have a 14,8m beam. Displacement should have been 5713 tons. Armament should have consisted of 3x2x150mm, 1 at the bow, 2 at the stern together with a dual 88mm Flak. 2 quintuple 533mm torpedoes were mounted amidships (like at the Fletcher class). 8x37 and 8x20mm was the intended AA. After the first combat experience various changes were made resulting in the Spähkreuzer 40. 10m longer and 1,2m wider, displacing 7500 tons and 0,7 knots faster (36,2 knots). Armor was improved from 10 mm to 20-25 mm at the deck and from 18 mm to 20-25 mm at the belt and additional 2 88 mm guns were added. Spähkreuzer 38 Spähkreuzer 40 In WoWs: These ships would be lacking identity. Too weak to be cruisers in adequate tiers and too big to be destroyers. These ships would be destroyer hunters and capable of hurting other cruisers (although not as good as dedicated cruisers). They could be used to connect the cruiser and destroyer trees but starting at cruisers, otherwise you would go from T8-9 destroyers to T5 cruisers. Since you can either choose historical progression or gameplay wise logical progression you see where we end up. I have to admit that these ships would be tough to balance properly. Splitting the 38 and the 40 would seem logical because the difference would be too large to be a hull upgrade. The tech tree for cruisers will be included in the next post (CAs) which will be out in the next days.
  23. Do you guys know something about German aircraft carriers ? I read something about the Graf Zeppelin class , and it says that only one was commissioned . (What tier do you think it can fit in ? As a premium or special ship )

    Hi everybody. I search a few german Alpha-Tester. Maybe they can open a little "german community" like in the WoT-forum. Thanks for that^^ greetings

    WW II torpedoes

    Hi guys, in this topic i will try to compare 3 most commonly used torpedoes of WW II, in which i am interested especially because worlds first functional torpedo was created by Ivan Lupis in my town - Rijeka US Navy - Mark 14 torpedo Weight 1,490 kg Length 6.25 m Diameter 530 mm Warhead 292 kg Effective range 4,100 m at 46 knots 8,200 m at 31 knots similar to german G7e torpedoes Mark 14 torpedoes had some serious problems - many reports showed exploder failures ( premature explosions later corrected with new exploder model ), depth problems - running too deep, dud shots, and circular runs - submarine Tullibee was sunk by its own torpedo Imperial Japanesee Navy - Type 93 torpedo ( aka. Long Lance ) Weight 2800 kg Length 9 m Diameter 610 mm Warhead 490 kg Effective range 22,000 m at 48–50 knots In my opinion the best torpedoes of WW II - they were superior in firepower and range - speed thanks to the use of pure oxygen as fuel oxydizer for torpedo's propulsion ( vs. compressed air in Mark 14 and Acid-lead batteries in G7e ) also used as a platform for developing infamous japanese suicide torpedo Kaiten Kriegsmarine - G7e torpedo Weight 1528 kg Length 7.16 m Diameter 533 mm Warhead 280 kg Effective range 6,000 m at 4 4 kn 8,000 m at 40 kn 14,000 m at 30 kn several modifications were used - G7e/T2, G7e/T3 and G7e/T4 Falke G7e/T3 was based on previous model T2, but greatly improved, removing problems with premature explosions caused by faulty magnetic detonators and depth control G7e/T4 Falke was world's first acoustic homing torpedo - later replaced by the G7es/T5 Zaunkönig G7es/T5 Zaunkönig - had even better detection equipment than Falke with better sensitivity and easier locating the propeller sounds - allies later developed anti GNAT (as the allies called the torpedo) devices dragged after an escort vessel making a loud noise to attract possible homing torpedoes in the area :honoring:
