I suppose it's a noob question, but i have to.

 

The Mainz main guns are 150 mm with a range of    17,5 km;

The Bismarck secondary guns are 150 mm with a range of    07,5 km;

The Roon secondary guns are 150 mm with a range of    05,0 km;

Maximum HE shell daamage is always 1700.

 

How that?

WG treats secondary guns entirely different to main guns. It’s strange but you get used to it

First of, the secondary guns are a different gun from the main battery guns on Mainz. München however has the same gun as the secondaries.

Second, imagine if the 15 cm guns on secondaries fired as fast, far and accurate as the München's main battery. It'd be absolutely stupid when a Scharnhorst would basically carry 3/4 of a same tier cruiser as secondary armament and rain accurate HE shells out to 16+ km. That'd be absolutely broken.

Noted that the same thing happens with american 127 mm guns. 

On Gearing they have 11.1 range, on North Carolina 5, Iowa and Montana 6 km range.

 

This way are secondaries missing their anti DD job?

No. They do their job. And it isn't to absolutely crap over anything in range. It'd be absolutely stupid if all the BBs had the accuracy of a GZ where you basically can't show up within 9.4 km or you basically just get deleted.

Believe me, the last thing you want is a realistic simulator of naval battle.

So in order to keep the game enjoyable, some things have to be rebalanced, including the ranges of these guns.
