looks like a much much better fit to replace udaloi as the ship that leads from Ognevoi to Grozovoi to me - Uda never made one bit of sense in that position...

Udaloi is quite strange in that line, considering its bad concealment, yes.

 

Still I personally believe the time has come for the T9 Prem DD.

2/3 Groz, isn't it? At a glance, the basic guns stats look similar...

 

More than two minutes to reload the torps is going to be painful. Edit: same as Groz (I have the torp module on mine, so I'd forgotten that).

5,6km surface detectability with all shebangs though (if my math is correct).

That. Would be a much more sensible progression.

 

The only question then would be what WG intends to do with the Udaloi.

If that is supposed to be the torpedo version of Grozo, they need to something about the torpedos.

Yeah, but have you seen how many T9 FXP/coal ships they are bringing right now...

WWGDISC (what WG did in similar cases) over in Tonks would be to turn the existing vehicle (Udaloi in this case) into a "reward" and give it to all current owners for free if they decide to replace it... here'S hoping :Smile_teethhappy:

I don't think it'll be that good: aren't the stats sans captain, but with best available upgrades? If so, it'll come in at around 6.3 km with CE.

 

Mind you, I would kill for even a nerfed Groz with 5.6 km... (well, use harsh language, anyway)

Why would you want to get so close in a Grozovoi? Gearing is the DPM guy that gets close. Grozo is the ballistics guy that keeps them at arms length.

exactly.... and that 2x2 is totally different story compared to 2x3... this is not a gunboat in any way... and even torpedoes seem really weak on damage. maybe it gets radar? lol

I wouldn't want to get close, but the sneakier the better - gives me a bit of room to make mistakes when trying to counter other DDs...

we've had worse fantasy projects... these were concepts to counter the Alaskas. Never built, for obvious reasons, but the plans were there.

So what does Azuma ship mean..? Is it a light cruiser line and an upcoming split of IJN Cruiser tree or is it some sort of premium/FreeXP/reward ship..?

 

edit - wrong thread

It was the story of the Japanese deliberately faking the construction of some larger cruisers, so the USA would waste resources to counter non-existing ships.

And when the USA actually started building these counterships (which were the Alaskas) the Japanese had to think of a way to counter ships that were designed to counter ships that were never meant to become ships in the first place.

 

But who cares, as long as we get some new hydrophilic toys to play around in :Smile-_tongue:

I think he meant they should buff torps. Grozo torps are not good.

We are talking about WG, so their way to turn gunboat into torpedoboat is by taking guns away.
