Hi all

 

My friend Seefelder and I have created a new split tech tree. This time for the USN battleships. I know there were made different posts about this topic some time ago. Anyway i want to show you the idea we got.

 

At first we listed the missing BBs in the game. We keeped going and created a split tech tree starting at tier V to tier X with a premium at tier VII.

 

At this point i want to share some thoughts as foreword.

After the introducing of the premium ship Massachusetts with buffed secondary gun range and reduced maingun range we decided that all split tech tree ships will be brawler and get buffed secondary gun range and sigma and reduced maingn range likewise Massachusetts. All secondary gun ranges have the same level as the german counterparts at each tear. The AA range will stay at US level. I listet those stats below. AS the key of inspiration for the specific tech tree taste the Massachusetts is listed below too.

Short review of the list if it is not fully visible to you.

Tech tree

T V    Nevada

T VI   Pennsylvania

T VII  Tennessee

T VIII West Virginia

T IX   Indiana (South Dakota 1920 class)

T X    Tillman (Tillman I Design 1916)

Premium

T VII  Constallation (Lexington class battlecruiser)

 

After this list I want to share with you some comment from our part.

 

I did not list the specific number of AA-guns. I only listed the kind of guns used on the B-hull and their ingame range.

 

The Premium ship West Virginia '41 was announced while working on this tech tree. Honestly I dislike the choosen name. I would rename the premium ship Maryland so we can use the West Virginia with the 1944 refit.

 

As these ships will be brawler we have decided that the A-hull for tier V to VIII will be the one after the corresponding 1930s rebuild and not the initial build. The only exeption is Pennsylvania with the 1941 refitted A-hull. The B-hulls of those ships will be the final one from 1942 to 1944 (after the attack on Pearl Harbor) with the 127mm/38 MK28 twin turrets, 40mm Bofors and 20mm Oerlikon replacing the former secondary and AA guns.
 

For tier IX and X we decided to choose the planned South Dakota 1920 class Indiana and the Tillman I design that suits the two top spots on the tech tree. Both ships will just need a hypothetical rerit for being competitive. The amount of secondary and AA guns on the refitted hulls are not settled.

 

I conclude the list with the premium tier VII. The Lexington class battlecruiser Constellation. We choose this ship name so Saratoga can be used for a other ship (...maybe a hypothetical future premium CV with the initial 203mm guns on it). We have not final decided if this ship will get the planned hull or a hypothetical 1942 refit. Maybe we can make two premium ships. One with the planned hull and one with a refitted one likewise the Kii.

 

 

Thank you for your attention and please feel free to leave a comment below.
