 Can't distinguish from 127mm caliber shells to the 410mm caliber shells?

If you missed the moment to witness which have turret fired, you could still determine it was from secondaries or main guns by observing the velocity, shell arc, blast radius and lastly penetrated holes. Also there are various shell bounce sound effects for different size of APs

The main guns sound way louder than the secondaries, and the secondaries doesnt really sound like guns....i think.....

You know what would be cool? If we could literally Fully aim the secondaries on a ship.

 

If you that might be a bit OP.. But not if everyone can do it!

Lol , i find that secondary fire colors are a bit brighter than main gun shells , secondary HE has orange color while AP is bright silver. I find it is rather easy to know what is being thrown at me unless the shell connect before i turn to it. Whenn fighting bb it is better to approach their blind side and turn to the opposite of their turret traverse. This neat trick can save you from 16 inches sledgehammer

It's not possible. Especially when the secondaries of some ships are also the main armament of other cruisers and destroyers.

NO, a montana has the broadside equivalent of 2 gearings, per side. if they assigned the secs and made it auto controllable, no DDs can even HOPE to get close to it, and a montana has the WORST secs in T10
