*Disclaimer: I have not yet unlocked H44 (Grosse Kurfust) I am merely asking for some early advice.

Anywho, H44 can unlock 420mm cannons which offer only +200 HE damage and +800 AP damage at a +3 reload expense

SO. Asking ppl who've unlocked and used H44; is the upgrade useful or is it a trap

 

 

Pretty sure there was a possible place for a blaze it reference in there too.

The 420mm pen harder and easier. The 406mm are a pain to use.

You can read the threads as to how he obtained the penetration graphs. So far, they are quite close with WG's official pen numbers on their Warships Spotlight.

For example. Scharnhorst 283s.

Its H42 / H41. The 420 hits harder and pen more then the 406. 32 sec reload is still ok since you can use the reload module anyway

The Tier 10 is:

Previously unknown German triple turret design for German 40cm(406mm/16") guns, recently found in the Russian archives. USSR was looking for it to buy(and Germany was willing to sell), as well as 3 complete turrets of this design. Of course, when war started it all was forgotten. I don't know what ship they were designed for.

The TX is based on H-41 "design" preliminaries.

Huzzah, the rage is real.

I'm mainly using the positioning of the secondary batteries as my reference so calm down

Which the H ship for Ferderich der Grosse? H39?

 

The tier 9 is a H40B. It's somewhat between a H39 and H41 according to ArdRaeiss[NA Dev]

FDG is the "Schlachtschiff H"(H-39) as it was actually designed, with some elements of H-41 design elements used as upgrades. Please also don't forget that her balance is not finalized yet.
