Wacky Ship Ideas

Hi all,

If you could create a completely random ship of your choosing into the game what would it be and how would you play it?

 

For me it would be a secondary ship with no main guns, just a lot of health and a lot of secondaries.  They would be places more on the sides and the forcing the ship to show its side instead of going bow in and slowly reversing. 

I would play it by pushing forward, tanking a lot of damage for teammates while watching the secondaries going to town.

 

What ideas for ships do you have?

 

Of course I'm obviously not suggesting that these ships to ever be placed into the game.

Personal I would like to see DE 413 Samuel B. Roberts in game maybe as T-V DD with 1 3x1 torp launcher armed with Fletcher torpedeeos and 2 5 inch guns... It  would be a wacky boat

Plays like a normal CV, but the BB guns act as 20km secondaries. :Smile_trollface:

A ship with equipment from all three factions in the second world war would be nice.

Basically a montana but with russian bias.

 

The russian missile cruiser kirov would do the trick too. Guided missiles? Oh yeah...also it would have 1000 AA raiting

If the radar meta does not subside in two months, I would create ship to mount a new anti radar chaff consumable!

 

Don't tell anyone as this might be under WG NDA right now.  :Smile_playing:

HMS Habbakuk - essentially a floating island aircraft carrier made out of a frozen mixture of ice and wood. Unsinkable, cannot be set on fire,  made of a material denser than concrete. As designed, it would have had a displacement of 2 million tons.

I would like to use the 12 X 2 100 mm cannons of the Hakuryu as primary weapons on a nimble and fast cruiser. That would be soo funny.

 

I wonder if there is any WOWS-like game which would allow you to create your own custom ship, with the weapons and layout you want (but with certain limitations, like tonnelage, handling, armor, for instance, if you want a Yamato sized battleship with 12 506 mm cannons then you can do it, but as a drawback the ship would be extremely slow, perhaps rather few HP (too heavy and easy to sink by flooding) and with a very long reload time.

A nice idea, but what would the secondaries fire? If they fire HE then people will complain about it adding to "BB" HE spam and if they fire AP then people will complain as there is a consensus that AP-Secondaries "suck". Also I think you mean 24km secondaries since I expect it would be worth going for a secondary-build with that and that would include AFT. :Smile-_tongue:

 

In terms of whackiness I would rather like to see how the Conqueror covered in Minotaur turrets that someone mocked up a picture of would play.

I would un-nerf the smoke...wacky enough? Ah, glorious were the times when I could sit 3km away from a DD and hammer him with my Belfast, unspotted!

Also, I'd add the ability to deploy defensive smoke screens for fighters. I.e., they will cover the retreat but are too thin to be used as cover for shooting.

 

Edit: Actually I'd not un-nerf the smoke.

Yes. Battleship size guns, hence the joke about people complaining of "BB" HE spam or still complaining about how AP-Secondaries "suck".

Here's an idea:

One turret fires HE.

The other fires AP.

Best of both worlds. :Smile_trollface:

My ship i build in "from the depths". Basically a giant mechanical lizard walking on the sea-bottom firing 150mm hesh shells from a minigun into the enemy ships belly.

Could actual be fun with a operation based on a Atlantic convoy escort with a couple of Black swans or River class and USN Tacoma class Frigates defending the convoy from surfaced uboats and land based aircraft like the FW-200c Condor or Junkers 88.

A ships that uses catapults instead of guns that flings ice boulders at enemy ships which can cause them to submerge.

Or a new Shell type that does damage to multiple targets by bounding off one ship to another.

RN Dido class cruiser, basically throwing 40kg AP shells at Atlanta rate of fire.

"Divison ship", only playable with three players, probably a BB of some sort, with one driver and the other two controlling front and aft turrets, respectively. Independently of each other.
