Ah, finally the 7 turret 14 gun longboat.

 

Don't know why they introduce Hyuga, but it looks like it's the original version and a tier lower than Ise, like the Mutsu/Nagato sisters... though the step from Fuso to Hyuga can not be very big.

Screams in Turkish 

 

7x2 305mm at tier 5... this one is going to be riddled with poor dispersion and/or poor penetration. Hopefully only the former as the idea of having a tier 5 Fuso is pretty appealing. 

 

Still waiting for Averoff and Yavuz .-.

Tier V Lyon confirmed! Should be fun  - the gun efficiency will be limited (those are Mikasa/Kawachi/Dreadnought guns, btw) but through enough at the wall and something's going to stick....

Agincourt at last! Hurrah! If the Dev Blog isn't teasing, " numerous secondary battery guns, which have long range for the tier." sounds distinctly promising - a properly manly T5 would be most welcome!

 

Hyuga sounds a bit more 'meh'; still, another premium for Narai might come in handy...

Hyuuga not as BBV? So Ise will have to carry that burden.

But finally the Ise class. Unfortunatly as prem instead of a second IJN BB line.

Finally Agincourt comes, still wouldn't have put her at tier V but there you go, will have to see how she manages.

No speed, no armour, no AA, long reload, low calibre at T5?

 

Once the charm of the gun count wears off I don't think many will find the Agincourt very impressive.

Would have loved Hyuga like 2-3 years ago.

Now though? Yeah, have fun facing CVs and T9 MM with it.

According to the stream and Dev Blog she has 1.8 sigma and on stream they said she had Improved Pen and ricochet angles it seems that her draw back is Literally zero AA and a 36 second reload on her 14 12 inch guns.

And at the point of T5 305 is getting a bit old, in fact I think she might be the only T5 BB with 12 inch guns though could be wrong (edit: And as pointed out I was wrong with Konig and Viribus Unitis)

As for the ships in general Im quite excited by these new ships Agincourt was one of the ships I have wanted for some time and Hyuga could be rather interesting as well I am quite looking forward to see.

Konig is 10x12" if memory serves.

You are indeed correct. Completely forgot about German WW1 ships often having slightly lower caliber guns.

A splendid and much under rated ship. Which you don't own.

 

(Unless you were making the point that it's a 12 inch gun ship on Tier V... in which case, sorry).

Yes, i was replying about the 12 inch gun part. And i owned her for a while, just went away with my Santa crate refund.

 

Edit : i think i didnt played a battle in her, but i probably gonna buy her again one day, since she is the closest resemblance to the Szent Istvan in the game.

NP, I realised I had misunderstood what you really meant. Sorry for my misunderstanding. Get the VU back if you can, btw - she's really quite fun!

If history is anything to go by... Poor pen. The RN was basically dumping its worst leftover shells in her magazines going back as far as 1890...
