Cannot wait for the introduction of German BB's, while everyone is busy trying to level up through the line I will be lurking in the shadows in my IJN 5.4 detection range DD's hopefully sending a few to a watery grave.

:hide_turtle:

Then once the euphoria has died down I shall progress through the BB line at a leisurely pace.

I'm afraid it won't be that easy for you.

One of the main characteristic of German BB's is that they are a close range brawler BB, with fast gun reload, exceptional secondaries both in number and range, some even possess the hydroacoustic consumable.

Most of the time you will need to get through their escort first, before you can even get a clean line of fire against it. Once you are spotted then you can say bye2 to large chunk of your health.

:unsure::D:D:D Battleships actually getting escorted on here..... You are right though, its damn hard to get any DD close to a big ship, and god have I tried in my Kagero. At low tiers it was easier in Isokaze to do though...

Yeah? Good luck with that. Some of us are masters of the WASD hack and employ it emphatically.

Then i shall sortie my 10km secondaries specced Bismarck with Erich Raeder on the helm and bringing Premium Hydroacoustic :trollface:

 

Yep,I can see a few DDs trying to suicide run a Bismarck,then finding out the Captain is one specced for secondaries and AFT!

Yes but if I catch you alone and not escorted then this comes into play

This hack works on my DD's as well to avoid those pesky secondaries. :)

Except as Eurobeat stated should you run into a secondary specced Bismarck with manual secondary control...you'll not get within 10km of her without taking horrendous fire. :)

In high tier? Good luck with the hydro

In low tier? Uber secondary+fast firing guns. Plus the shell is small so they pens  dd even broadside.

German low tier BBs are actually good for killing DDs.

 

Why the dispersion gun too wide? (Missed all hits)

 

So that as you progress through the tier, you feel like something is getting better.

I had an incident on Trap in my Gneisenau to come face to face with a Kagero. I knew a ship just capped C and suspected it was their last DD. I was able to see over the NE island of C where I sailed behind and my fighter spotted the Kagero heading towards me. I selected it for my secondaries and started turning hard to port when I approached the end of the island coming into the opening of C. It spotted me first but from 4km I saw him and fired all my guns at him hitting him for 6k damage continuing my turn. The Kagero came around towards me turned and fired torpedoes as I was turning back hard to starboard while my secondaries lit him up putting it on fire. He put it out...I outmaneuvered his torps and was able to put a parting shot of HE from my C turret setting him ablaze again when he disappeared into the smoke and blew up! One thing for sure, that DD player wasn't prepared for how maneuverable the Gneisenau is as it is fast. Even its AA is strong for its tier. In that same battle a Shokaku sent 2 torpedo squadrons at me and I obliterated them both as I kept turn to force him to try to maneuver into firing position. His exact words in chat, "OMG, that AA @@!" He didn't bother sending fighters at me anymore.

tier 10 is infested with DDs looking to make a living on the new german BBs

 

TB plane ok for that but worry about DB plane (random dropping)
