If you think your IJN or USN cruisers were trash...now they are trash of the trash.

 

WG has invented a new frontier for a OP ship: The Minotaur :angry:

 

You have a Zao and think to be stealth?....No more: Minotaur is more stealth

You have a Des Moines and think to have a great ROF?....No more: Minotaur has a greatest ROF

 

...and what about turrets rotation?....I think about poor servents and gunners inside Minotaur turrets: they have to feel like in a luna-park carousel: 180° in 4 sec....hahahaha....Pls give me the bag for vomit...DIZZINESS!!!! :nerv_fish:

 

P.S.

For WG information:

https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otobreda_76/62

OTO melara automatic gun 76 mm, one of fastetst modern automatic gun (without loaders and gunners inside) has a rotation of 180° in 5 sec.

Then, dear WG, dont joke with us.

This is surely not a 'brit ships are OP' thread is it? Or am I imagining things? Well, I've obviously not got the minotaur, but if it is OP perhaps it could spread some of it's good fortune to the lower tier brit ships, they need all the help they can get.

I live in hope that one day Andreas will say something positive about this game.  Every day it is a new complaint.  If I had that many complaints about a game I would probably stop playing it and find something I enjoyed more...

Ignoring fact that the other 2 have 8inch guns and not 6.

 

But you are correct WG have [edited] up the guns in game on HMS Monitor unmodified reload 3.2sec, unmodified turret ration 180’ in 4.7 secs

 

Turret as Designed and fitted on HMS tiger

 

Rotion 40’ a second so 180’ in 4.5secs max rate of fire 20 rounds a min so 1 every 3 secs

I got the Minotaur,, and it's far from OP!

If anything,, are Zao/DM more OP, DM does what Mino is trying to do, but doing it much easier IMO.

Just go bow/angel on and Mino is completely useless

Minotaur is OP only when she catches you with pants down... Something Des Moines can do just as well. And every DM vs Mino encounter so far ended with utter destruction of the latter. While former suffers hearing disorders from all them shells glancing off the bow:P

Don't think much of it, met one in a Hipper and tanked most of the damage by just going bow on.

I disagree with the thread title.

Opening post is just a regular trash post, and not very creative at that.

No new frontiers there...

Some salient points from the link:-

 

  • Rate Of Fire 15 - 20 rounds per minute
  • Quotes from "The Turret Captain on HMS Tiger" provided by Darrell Williams:
    "The weight of the rotating structure is 171 tons; each gun weighing 7 tons. The mounting can train at 40 degrees per second, a speed it achieves from standstill in less than 2 seconds."
  • Projectile Types and Weights:- AP - 129.75 lbs. (58.9 kg)
  •                                                  HE - 132.00 lbs. (59.9 kg)   [though I've no idea what this could be!!]

Reading the above description WG have slightly undercooked those guns, the turret turn time is slower than it should be and base ROF is a little slower as well.

 

Basically there were no guys in those turrets, autoloader and radar guided. 

 

and IIRC the proposed Minataur class was basically a 1950s Atlanta designed to defend against early Jets, hence the insane ROF and turret speed, basically pump as much flak into the air as possible and able to track fast moving turrets.

 

Let's also not forget you can completely negate the Minataur's damage output by just turning, you can't do that to a Zao or DM.
