So I just purchased the Nagato only to discover that the hull only has 25mm of armour. Is this some sort of sick joke?

No matter where I angle her I am deleted in a couple of salvos.

Does the belt armour improve with the B hull? If not I think I sell her and skip the rest of the IJN BB line.

 

PS. Does the B hull also include the removal of the highly flammable paint the ship seems to be covered with atm?

Yo, I have the Nagato B Hull - and I can tell you that it's still 25mm throughout.

 

(Edit: Nvm he meant the armour belt, not the aft and fore plating that is identical in both hulls. I'm a derp)

Really? Ok thanks and people wonder why BB's sit back and snipe in the higher tiers. 

Time to sell her. That was a waste of credits.

You're seeing the Torpedo Bulge armour, which covers the main belt. Turn it off in the armour viewer to see the proper hull armour.

Learn to use the filters. Hide other sections to reveal other layers of armor. There's a 229 mm inclned belt behind the 25 mm exterior, and 305 mm just below it. And then you get to the citadel armor which varies from 76 mm to 289 mm.

Nagato's main belt is entirely covered inside the TDS bulge added during refit. You need to remove the TDS (first option of armor viewer is TDS/bow/stern) to see it.

But anyway, Nagato is a glass ship. You can bow tank 14"/356mm well, but showing broadside against even 12"/305mm is quite dangerous. And anything above 14" can easily overmatch your bow/stern/deck/TDS* and get sweet penetration damage.(*basically the entire ship) And HE shells with penetration of 26mm or above slaughter Nagato much like Izumo.(kek, Izumo is actually better protected against HE than Nagato despite being considered the torch of the game)

Lol These guys are playing the buffed stock Nagato and still complaining about the ship... When I played, It had slower AP shell which doesn't actually pen anything over 11kms... 

And 25mm armor seems like Torpedo Protection... turn it off and you can find the armor behind it like all the others have said...

The current A hull is significantly better than the old A hull just look at the Mutsu to get an idea.

Yep, I'm working my way down the IJN line and didn't purchase the Nagato, it doesnt get better with Amagi.

tbh Nagato armor is surprisingly weak for a tier VII, worse than Fuso because of its pseudo-turtleback citadel. It takes AP damage like there's no tomorrow (I once pen'ed Nagato through the deck at close range for 13k+ damage). No slopped armor either while Amagi has huge 25mm bulge armor. Good maneuverability and accurate gun though

Butt-tanking huehuehue

I have Amagi fully kitted out, has great fire power but I'm referring to Hull A , upgrade to Hull B , better engines etc she is a great ship. But with Hull A she is very vunerable you have to hit and run against other BB's at T8 with that hull.
