Tier III ? Maybe IV ?

 

What for ? Those tiers are used to rush through in an hour playing maximum, never to return for most.

 

If they were to give us usefull dreadnoughts or other tier II, II and IV premiums that were long scrapped before WWII  , they should design operations for it. The most relevant one being ofcourse the battle of Jutland.

I don't care how experienced you are, Vampire is always a giggle; there's always room for an occasional low tier premium, provided it's fun...

 

I wouldn't want to play it for multiple games in a row, of course, but now and again is worthwhile.

Basically 14 twelve inch (304mm) guns.

 

Too much firepower for tier IV or below imo as others suggested.

Yeah I agree it would be an awesome premium perhaps at tier 4

Its bulk should give it a HP pool of around 55

Its all down to range and dispersion

They are adding paper ships with more firepower and insane armour (Russian line) This ship was at Jutland

more like 45-47k - just a few thousand tons more displacement than the Wyomings, which have 44k HP ingame...

Plus which, 55k would mean it'd have to go up to T5 probably - so keeping the HP down would actually end up benefitting it I'd say :Smile_teethhappy:

Yeah Tier 4 would be benificial

Also had submerged torpedo tubes.

 

Would indeed be a funbote!

WG made it a habit of not modeling those ingame. The only submerged/nontrainable torps we ever got were the submarines in the last Halloween event.

It's armour belt keeps it from being OP.

No damage was done to the ship when firing full broadsides, despite the common idea that doing so would break the ship in half, but much of the ship's tableware and glassware did shatter when Agincourt fired her first broadside

This seems like a fun ship that I would buy. 14 turrets is a nice broadside that I would love to fire. Dps is scaleable, so doesn't need to be an issue. And I love my Mikasa too, even though she is very underpowered and has crappy MM.

I can see why it would work for wargaming to add her considering she was originally built for Brazil, then sold to the Ottoman Empire before finally being requisitioned by the British, this would allow WG to basically do the same as they did with the USS Boise and have her in the same form but available to different nations.

 

Seems to me like a good chance for them to advertise in Turkey and add a low tier premium that can be used for a future Pan American fleet.

She didn't have the heaviest guns, she had the more heavy guns and more turrets then any other Dreadnought in the World. But by the time  she was laid down and launched, RN already commissioned all four ships of the Orion class with 13.5inch guns.

I have been asking for the Agincourt for more than a year now, yes she did have the most main guns of any dreadnought class battleship, however, only by 1 single guns as the Italians had two entire classes which were virtually identical each with 13 305mm main guns during the First World War, however, these were subsequently rebuilt in the interwar period and served during the second world war with 10 x 12.6" main guns, whereas HMS Agincourt was scrapped under the age clause of the Washinton Naval Treaty

Seized forcibly rather than requisitioned. Some see this as contributing to the Ottoman Empire joining the Central Powers but they were already going to which is why it was seized.

Maybe WG will troll us as an April 1st prank, and announce Agincourts as a Tier 4 ship with torpedoes and Smoke.  :Smile_trollface:
