Can someone explain why nearly same ships have so different profile? I mean why is gearing so much higher in water?

Are deepwater torps so heavy weight or what - if its this case then I must point out that US soildiers are heavier than asians.

Is WG planning to change Gearing to have at least similar height to Yueyang and not double?

You sir started out with a mistaken assumption. They are in fact not the same class.

 

The Gearing is a Gearing class destroyer, the Yueyang is a Allen M. Sumner class. That is all.

They are not 100% equal. Commander bridge is a bit different and also smoke stacks seem to not have the same length between.

Gearing class is basically a slightly bigger Allen M Sumner (Yueyang) class.

Yueyang needed to be stealthier than Shimakaze for reasons, so...

but its just a number, they can do it without changes in ship model.

Edit: The detection of the ship usually compares with the height and to this date WG still represent that usually.

Major visual difference between Allen M Sumner and Gearing is space between smoke stacks. Gearing model is quite old and maybe this is a reason and it will be lowered once/if WG decide to remodel all those older models in game. Or this could be done intentionally for more balance between Shima and Gearing when there was only two lines in the game. Hope WG fix this.

I think he meant - The detection of the ship usually compares with the ship height detection and to this date WG still represent that usually.

Simple, someone goofed and reprinted the same image for both classes.

 

They're not quite THAT much alike in rl.

I see difference in space between smoke stacks, exactly same as in game.

I dont think that anyone would want to cheat/photoshop some ships image. There were many versions from what I found and I guess you are not so old to rememeber how both really looked at 1945.  

 

Found another one with specifications: Draft 15feet 8 inches (4,8m) for Sumner / 14 feet for Gearing (4,3m).
