looks up HMS Agincourt on Google*... ... ...

 

:amazed: That's... A.. Lot... Of... Guns... :amazed:

 

It's like the British Fuso and I like what I see... Why not let it be a regular ship when the RN Line comes? Seems like a good BattleTub...

Interesting story for the Agincourt. From UK >> Brazil >> Turkey >> UK again, haha! Maybe he had the adventure of his life. lol.

Oh and the guns of course! :D

More Guns = More RNG

More Guns = More Citadel Hits

More Guns = More Suffering

it was a 1 off ship that was built for the Brazilians but they couldn't fund it, so was sold to the Turks, but when war broke out in 1914 the First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill had her detained in Britain until Turkey position in the war became clear.

When Turkey sided with the Central Powers, the dreadnought was impounded and handed over to the Royal Navy.

14 x 12 inch guns would be good as a tier 4 premium ship.

yes lots of guns but didn't have much armour only in a few areas was the armour anything.

But as a tier 4 premium ship I'm sure many players would buy it.

More like Tier 5 - Bad AA but lots of GUNS!!! (plus more Mooolah$$$$ from selling it as a tier 5)

 

As long as she as good accuracy to compensate for her lack of AA, speed and armor (but Kongo and New York are also WW1 vintage so yeah..)

Na it would get smashed at tier 5 facing CVs and facing BBs with 14in guns and ships with more HP and armour.

It only has 12in guns and not as much armour either and very little AA

it would be on par with the tier 4 BBs Wyoming, Arkansas Beta, Myogi and imperaror Nikola l   plus it is a slow ship as well only 22 knots.

But it be up to WG to balance it

still would like to see this ship in the game

yeah after playing WOWS for a while it would make a better tier 5 BB or even pushing up to tier 6 maybe but speed be the problem at 22knts 

other ships at tier 4-5 have up to 12 guns so 14 would be fine I'm sure of it.

and considering they have a 16 gun ship at tier 7 with the French BB 

14 gun at lower tier wont hurt the game
