  1. I don't know if a topic was previously done before about this topic, but I think it's something we should care about as the Graf Zeppelin was really the only aircraft carrier done by the german Kriegsmarine. This project was intended so that the power of the Kriegsmarine would go further than just the confines of the Baltic seas. This carrier if it would have been finished it could of have been capable of transporting 42 fighters and dive bombers- 12 fighters and 30 dive bombers. It was expected that it would either carry 12 Junkers Ju 87, prepared to land on carriers, and thirty Bf 109 and Fi 167 torpedo bombers. This carrier was 262.5 meters long and an beam of 36 meters, its max. speed was of about 38 knots, about 62 km. The carrier was laid down 28 December of 1936, and it was launched the 8 of December of 1938, when it was 85% completed. Armament The armament was rather simple and did not fit any battery bigger than 15 cm cannons to defend themselves against other warships. 16 × 15 cm SK C/28 guns 12 × 10.5 cm SK C/33 guns 22 × 3.7 cm SK C/30 guns 28 × 2 cm FlaK guns Armor The Graf Zeppelin was finely defended, as at the belt the amount of protection was of 100mm (3.9) in. The flight deck was protected with 45 mm (1.8) in. Now the main deck was a bit better protected than the flight deck with 60 mm (2.4) in. Now my question is, will it be present in the German Kriegsmarine branch tree of World of Warships, or will it just remain as an iconic ship?

  3. Today we will take a look at the WWI German battleships. Germany did also develop a variety of battlecruisers, but to keep this post in a reasonable length they will be covered in a different post. Nassau-Class: Germany’s first Dreadnoughts. 146m long, 26,9m beam, 21000 tons displacement and 20 knots top speed. Although they are 15m shorter than the Dreadnought class they have the same displacement due to more armor. The belt was 80-300mm, the deck 55-80mm thick. A 30 mm torpedo bulkhead was the underwater protection. The conning tower was shielded by 400mm armor at the sides and 80 at the roof. The main battery consisted of 12 280mm (11 inch) guns in dual turrets with the same hexagonal layout as the Kawachi (but the one on the Kawachi was inspired by the Nassau class). 12x150mm (5.9 inch) and 16x88mm (3.5 inch) were mounted in casemates at the sides. During their careers the 88mm guns were removed and 2 two AA guns of the same calibre were installed. Additionally the ships were not very stable and many measures were taken to improve it with little success. Despite the tendency to roll she was considered maneuverable. An notable tale is a encounter with the British destroyer HMS Spitfire(1912) during the Battle of Jutland. In the confusion of the battle Nassau rammed Spitfire and tried to take her out with her A turret but could not depress the gun enough to score a hit. Nevertheless the gun blast destroyed Spitfire’s bridge but she managed to break free and rip a 30 foot (7m) hole in the Nassau’s side armor. Both ships survived the battle damaged and limped home with reduced speed. Picture In WoWs: A slow ship, but you have to start somewhere. Expect it to have more survivability than other battleships but less firepower. In fact this can be said about most German Capital ships. You are there to take a beating for your team and your guns, while lacking damage are still deadly to most ships. You may need longer to destroy other ships, but you can afford to stay in contact longer. Your preferred playstyle should be getting in close so your strong belt can soak up the damage. Helgoland-Class: An improved Nassau-class. Bigger, better, (a little) faster. The ships featured nearly the same armor layout, with improvements to casemate armor and the conn tower roof. The length was increased to 167m and the main battery calibre to 305mm (12 inch). 2 150mm guns were added at the cost of 2 88mm guns. AA was later added in the form of 2 88mm guns. Speed was improved to 21,2 knots. Handling was considered better, too. There was a debate about the turret layout but it was deemed that the hexagonal layout was safer because a superfiring pair could easier be disabled with one hit. Picture In WoWs: You get the same ship just bigger and better armed. Still a slow tank. Still smaller caliber than other ships on your tier. Still relatively maneuverable. You get better used to it because that won’t change so soon. Kaiser-Class: 172 long, 29m beam and with 27000 tons displacement the Kaiser-class was the next step in German Capital ship design. Protection was increased to 180-350 mm at the belt and 60-100 mm at the armored deck. The gun layout was changed to 305 mm (12 inch) guns in 5 dual turrets. One was located at the front, two en echelon amidships and a superfiring pair aft. An improved turret design was installed which allowed 4,1 km more range (to 20,4 km). 14 medium calibre (150mm) and 8 small calibre (88mm) guns were installed in casemates. Kaiser was the first German capital ship to be propulsed by turbines but she could only sail at 23,4 knots. AA consisted of up to four 88mm Flak guns. Picture Schematic In WoWs: You get an upgrade in every aspect. Your broadside punch stays the same but you can deliver it at longer range. You get more armor and speed. However, your gun calibre is now (expect Kaiser around T5) significantly lower than that of your counterparts. This can however be compensated with accuracy and rate of fire. And WG needs to invent some serious AA upgrade. The historical AA should give you a DPS of around 10, which is severely lacking for a T5 battleship at T5. See below for additional insight. König-class: A similar design to the Kaiser-class. The turret layout was changed again to 2-1-2 (like a Fuso without the third turret). Otherwise pretty similar to the Kaiser. 175m long, 30m beam and 28600 tons displacement. The Germans considered them to be "very good sea-boats". 2 additional 88mm guns were fitted as well. Schematic Picture In WoWs: A slightly bigger Kaiser with increased broadside punch. The AA is still massively lacking. I find it difficult to fit her in the game. We already have a T5, but at the same time she is too weak to be T6. Compared to the other T6 BBs she is outgunned, out speeded and has neglectable AA. You could make her another option at T5 but she is superior to the Kaiser-class in almost every aspect. The best solution would be to make the Kaiser-class class a premium and to put the König in the tree at T5. Bayern-Class: Another step in the same direction the Bayern-Class was a further improvement. Increasing the main battery calibre to 380mm (15 inch) 8 guns in 4 turrets were fitted, two at the bow and two at the stern. 16x150mm guns in casemates give you a strong short range armament. The armored belt was thickened to 170-350 mm, the deck armor remained at 60-100 mm. The ships were capable of up to 22,5 knots with an engine. The reload was quite fast (23 seconds) but according to British post war trials the accuracy was lacking. Armor scheme Picture In WoWs: Still a slow and well protected ship. The armament gets beefed up massively to competitive 15 inch. Makes it a solid T6. Good alpha and penetration but only a limited amount of guns. Something must be done with the AA, maybe do a Fuso and put 20mm and 37mm Flak guns everywhere where you can fit one. They won't have much range but better than nothing and a logical design step compared to other navies as well as to German WWII AA upgrades. L20/24 alpha: A big step forward in German Capital ship design. Developed with the experience from the Battle of Jutland the project was supposed to be 238m long, have 33,5m beam and displace 48500 tons. 4x2x420mm (16,5 inch) was the planned primary battery while 12x150mm in casemats were the projected secondaries. AAA was planned to be either 8x88 mm or 8x105 mm guns. The difference between the L20 and the L24 was the placement of torpedo tubes. L20 carried submerged tubes while L24 was planned with deck mounted launchers. Armor plating below the waterline was cancelled in favor of additional speed, theoretically allowing the ships to travel with 26 knots. The armored deck which was 50-120mm thick was additionally protected by a 20-40mm forecastle deck. The belt thickness was not changed and therefore up to 350mm. The medium calibre artillery was reduced to 12x150 mm guns. Schematic In WoWs: A slightly bigger Nagato with half an inch more calibre, more side- but less deck armor. The AA is still weak (this must sound like a broken record). Otherwise a solid T7. Although you probably need to get closer to your enemies even more because at T7 your deck armor gets outclassed by other battleships while your belt still is your strong point. And you have reduced secondaries compared to previous ships and to the Nagato. Tech Tree: You can expect the German WWI battleships to be slow tanks with weaker guns up to tier 6. From there you get a good upgrade in firepower but your accuracy starts to suffer. You generally prefer short range engagements due to your strong belt armor and sufficient maneuverability to dodge torpedos (unless at point blank range). Your secondary batteries are quite strong up to the L20 alpha. Either WG invent some fictional AA upgrades or you will need air defence from allied ships. Theoretically you can balance the German BBs around this, making them quite strong against ships but keep them vulnerable against planes. Together with my other posts (and the upcoming posts) you get the following tech tree
  4. 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.
  5. Just quickly wanted to drop the news here from the Russian Website As far as Google Translate works, it mentions, that the first German ships will arrive in October, including Cruisers, such as Dresden and the Admiral Hipper Class and most likely Bismarck & Tirpitz. There will be a livestream later today at 20:00 (Moscow time) from Gamescom.
  6. 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
  7. Welches Schiff würdet ihr lieber bei den Deutschen Kreuzern auf Tier 6 sehen das jetzige T6 Schiff Nürnberg oder einen leichten Kreuzer M-Klasse? Meine Meinung währe das die M-Klasse für T6 besser geeignet währe und die Nürnberg der letzte Rumpf der Königsberg das das Schiff ja nur eine leichte Verbesserung zur Königsberg ist.

    New JOT DORA Signal Flag

    For the upcoming WOWS German battleship "tree" which will probably be released before or at Gamescom in Cologne/Köln 18-21 August 2016 it would be an interesting idea to add a German navy commemorative Signal Flag available to all battleship in WOWS from all nations. So this Signal Flag would be available to all WOWS players in all battleships from all countries represented in WOWS (USA, Japan, Great Britain, France, Russia, Germany etc.) and not only to German battleships to be sure. Currently we have in WOWS two historic commemorative Signal Flags: 1.) Zulu (awarded for “First Blood”). Historic signal of the Japanese Navy, giving you a 20% bonus to credits earned in battle. 2.) Equal Speed Charlie London (awarded for “Kraken Unleased”). Historic signal of the British Royal Navy giving you a 50% bonus to experience earned in battle. These two Signal Flags are based on historic ones: - The "Z" Flag Signal was hoisted by the Japanese Admiral Togo on 27th May 1905 at the battle of Tsushima and its historic meaning was "The Empire's fate depends on the result of this battle, let every man do his utmost duty.". - The "Equal Speed/C(harlie)/L(ondon)" Flag Signal was hoisted by British Admiral Jellicoe on 31st May 1916 at the battle of Skagerrak/Jutland and its historic meaning was to direct his fleet to change from a column formation to a single battle line steering course Southeast by East, while maintaining the current speed. It would be interesting to introduce a new commemorative WOWS Signal Flag for the German navy at the same time that the German battleship line is introduced in WOWS. There are several candidates for a German navy historic Flag Signal, my first choice is the historic "JOT DORA" signal (JD) which was hoisted on 24th May 1941 by the commander of the German battleship BISMARCK Kapitän zur See (Captain) Lindemann. The JOT DORA Flag Signal looks like this: If JOT DORA would be added as a German navy commemorative Signal Flag in WOWS and would be based on the historic battle of the Denmark Strait then I can think of several appropriate effects for JOT DORA when hoisted in WOWS: Award +1 Commander Skill Point and player ship main gun accuracy improved by 10% (due to BISMARCK’s K.z.S. Lindemann disobeying orders, hoisting JOT DORA and sinking HOOD). Minus 20% to the firing accuracy of enemy ships attacking your ship with gun fire (due to HOOD missing its target completely for ten minutes after which she was sunk). Plus 20% to the risk of an enemy ship being targeted by the main guns of the player’s ship of having a magazine detonating (due to HOOD being hit in a magazine). Player ship main gun accuracy improved by 20%. (due to BISMARCK and PRINZ EUGEN respectively hitting HOOD with their third and fourth half-salvo’s). I think option number one (1.) is by far the most original and best option, since it has only a minor effect on game play but is still nice to have. And most importantly it will allow all players to have at least a chance in their natural life to have one commander reach Skill Point number 19 in WOWS. Grounds for awarding JOT DORA, which should be a very rare Signal Flag to get and use: When a player commanding a battleship sinks an enemy battleship with the first 40 rounds it fires on that ship with its main armament then JOT DORA is awarded. The Signal Flag should be limited to being rewarded only once per month per player. This flag should not be able to be purchased with any form of money, credit, doubloons etc. but instead only “earned” in game and not be transferable. The history behind Flag Signal JOT DORA: on 24th May 1941 the British heavy cruisers NORFOLK and SUFFOLK together with the British battleship PRINCE OF WALES and British battle cruiser HOOD engaged the German heavy cruiser PRINZ EUGEN and the German battleship BISMARCK at the battle of Denmark Strait. In the engagement the HOOD opened fire at about 05:52 hours and until about 06:01 fired about 44 rounds in 10-11 half-salvo’s at the PRINZ EUGEN all of which completely missed the target. At about 05:57 HOOD was hit by BISMARCK’s third half-salvo and PRINZ EUGEN’s fourth half-salvo. At 05:57 HOOD's Control Tower (and Main Fire Control Director) was hit and knocked out by BISMARCK and at about 06:00 the HOOD was hit again by BISMARCK’s fifth half-salvo and then exploded and sank. HOOD was hit at least about two to three times in total by BISMARCK from 05:55 to 06:00 and at least about once in total by PRINZ EUGEN from 05:55 to 05:58. The explosion of HOOD was most likely caused by a magazine explosion caused by BISMARCK at about 06:00. The HOOD and PRINCE OF WALES opened fire at about 05:52 on respectively PRINZ EUGEN and BISMARCK. The German Admiral Lütjens who commanded BISMARCK and PRINZ EUGEN for reasons really only known to him did not allow any of his ships to return fire. At about 05:55 the commander of BISMARCK Kapitän zur See (K.z.S.) Lindemann had enough of it and directly disobeyed Admiral Lütjens when he said: “Ich lasse mir (doch) nicht mein Schiff unter meinem Ar**h wegschießen! Feuer eröffnen!” ("I will not let my ship be shot away from under my ar*e! Open fire!”). K.z.S. Lindemann then ordered the JOT DORA Flag Signal to be hoisted which informed PRINZ EUGEN that permission was given by Lindemann to open fire. Admiral Lütjens did not respond to K.z.S. Lindemann’s insubordination. For more reading on the 1941 Denmark Strait battle: http://www.kbismarck.com/ds-barticle.pdf
  9. Einige Pressevertreter und Streamer wurden von Wargaming zum Launch Event von World of Warships nach England eingeladen. Buffed hat nun seinen ersten Bericht vom Event online gestellt. Im Bericht beschreibt man das Event selbst, sowie die ersten Eindrücke der DE/RU-Schiffe in knapper Form. Interessant dürfte auch sein, dass man den Global Producer nach einem Termin für die deutschen Schlachtschiffe gefragt hatte. Laut Auskunft waren diese ursprünglich für Ende 2015 geplant, dass soll aber zeitlich nicht mehr geklappt haben bzw. klappen, daher ist der neue Termin nun das erste Quartal 2016. Jingles (Streamer UK) hat ein sehr ausführliches und sehenswertes (langes) Video vom Event angefertigt, hier werden hauptsächlich die (echten) Schiffe gezeigt, praktisch eine virtuelle Tour für alle interessierten. Wer sich für U-Boot und Schiffe Allgemein interessiert, sollte sich das Video ruhig mal ansehen (rund 45 Minuten lang), am Ende gibt es auch noch die Event-Location und einen kurzen Einblick auf die Schiffe im Spiel zu sehen: Neben Streams hat Baron von Games (US Streamer) in einem ersten YT-Videozusammenschnitt nun auch die DE/RU-Schiffe in einem rund 25 minütigen Video zusammengefasst: PhlyDaily (US Streamer) hat Gameplay vom DE Tier X Kreuzer Hindenburg auf YouTube bereit gestellt: und noch ein Video vom Tier X RU Zerstörer: In den nächsten Tagen sollen noch weitere Berichte bzw. Interviews folgen, sowie ein Podcast über das Event bei Buffed. Ebenso werden diverse Streamer wohl noch weitere Videos zu den russischen und deutschen Schiffen veröffentlichen.
  10. Welcome to today’s episode. We will look at some low tier ships today to fill the empty spaces in the tech tree. Brummer (1935): Let’s start with what WG wants to put at T1. A training ship, armed with 4-8 105mm DP guns in dual turrets. 112m long, 13,5m beam and displacing 3010 tons the Brummer was capable of 23,1 knots. The ship featured an improved propulsion system that was later adapted for destroyers. The ship was also equipped with 2x88mm Flak as well as 4-8x37mm and 4x20mm AA guns. It was supposed to act as a minelayer during wartime but it was sunk in 1940. Graphic In WoWs: A weaker T1 ship than the other nations have. Expect it to be a paper ship with strong AA at T1. Only that you will never face planes. So that is useless. Other than that you can probably spam HE with a nice RoF which can be strong. However, it’s a T1 and you will probably never spend many games in it. Magdeburg: The last German cruiser armed with 105mm guns. Finished in 1912 these ships were 138,7m long, had 13,5m beam and displaced 4500 tons. They could reach speeds up to 27,5 knots. Their armament consisted of 6 105mm guns on each side (12 in total). They were later replaced by 2 150mm guns at each side and 1 additional guns at the bow and two at the stern (7 in total). One 500mm torpedo tube was also added at each side. Two 88mm Flak were also added. Model before the refit In French service after the refit In WoWs: An interesting ship. You have the choice between 6 spam guns or 2-5 heavy hitting for your broadside. Given the difference in RoF this gives you the possibility to choose what fits your style. The single torpedo tube can be effective at close quarters, but don’t count on going in against battleships and surviving. Other than that a quite mobile platform for it's tier. But a paper ship. Königsberg-Class (1915): One of the last German ships built during WWI. Carrying 3 150mm guns on each side and 2 superfiring aft (8 in total) this class keeps the traditional German design of most guns not placed at the centerline. The ships were 145m long had 14,5m beam and displaced 7125 tons. Top speed was rated with 27,5 knots. One 500mm torpedo tube was fitted at each side. 3D-Render In WoWs: A solid T3. While having 8x5.9 inch guns you will only be able to use 5 at a time, certainly keeping it at T3 power levels. Quite fast with medium protection so a light cruiser. Stronger armament than the Japanese T3 but weaker torpedoes. Großes Torpedoboot 1916 Mob.: The German design philosophy for torpedo boats was quite different from the allied one. Intended to operate together with the main fleet in the North Sea the ships had the size of a small destroyer, being 85m long and displacing 1291 tons. Armed with 3x105mm guns and 6x500mm torpedos (3 single launchers at each side) these ships were capable of 32-34 knots. Graphic In WoWs: A T2 destroyer. The main guns are a little weak but besides that this ship will do ok. The reload of the single torpedo tubes will be quite short. Großes Torpedoboot 1918 Mob.: The last German WWI torpedo boat (destroyer). 93m long and up to 35 knots fast they displaced 1550 tons. Armament was increased to 4x150mm and 4x105mm guns as well as 4 machine guns and 6 50cm torpedo tubes. Over 50 were ordered, 33 laid down but only a couple completed as civilian vessels after the war (2 were converted to sailing ships). Graphic In WoWs: A T3 destroyer. Big main guns, but expect them to traverse slowly. Your torpedoes become weak at T3. A capable, but difficult ship. High risk, high reward. The secondaries can hurt other destroyers, but that’s about it. Großes Torpedoboot 1916: The biggest German torpedo boat/destroyer of the first World war. The main production focus was laid on guns which increased hull size. This ships were 108m long, displacing 2415 tons. Their size is comparable to the American Fletcher-class. Capable of up to 37 knots they were armed with 4x150mm guns and 2x2 600mm torpedo tubes. Never completed during the war 2 ships were given to Italy and France as reparations and served there until the 1930s. Picture In WoWs: Certainly big ships. The torpedoes get bigger but you get fewer of them. You lose the secondary battery of the 1918 mob. but you get faster. Expect slow turning turrets. One of the stronger T4 destroyers.

    Wie der Titel schon verrät, geht es um Hubschrauber: Uns zwar wollte ich die Community fragen, ob sie es denn auch gerne sehen würde, wenn die Deutschen Schlachtschiffe, ab Tier IX, vielleicht statt eines Aufklärungsflugzeuges, einen Hubschrauber bekommen könnten. Solch einer (Flettner 282) war ja schon für die Kriegsmarine, speziell für die Aufklärung, in Serie gebaut worden. Hier auch nochmal ein Link: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flettner_Fl_282 Grüße cesar

    Question About Upcoming Tech Trees

    Are we going to get more port slots with upcoming Soviet and German tech trees ? I know we will get for Tier I slot but it would be good to get at least one more as a bonus or special. What others think ? Would that be normal option for everyone ? I am not asking for it, just wondering if it's going to happen.
