what do you think will happen .if the usn destroyers have a Homing torpedo upgrade?

will it be balanced compared to their IJN Counterparts or Would be OP

IMO I think its good to have those in usn destroyers

 

I already think lots of players will rant about that

USN Destroyers already better than IJN Destroyer in almost every way, USN has guns that actually useful, low detection, and good torpedoes

while IJN have the worse gun (good luck contesting cap with any other DD without support in IJN DD), low detection ( which is basically the same as USN DD), good torpedoes (again basically the same as USN DD because USN DD torpedoes have really low detection 1.3km vs 1.7km or something like that), and also USN DD have DFAA to protect being insta killed by CV, and a really really good smoke.

USN DDs don't really need buff, IJN DDs are

we should give USN torps speciality that can U turn

coz USN torp can actually U turn in reality :tea_cap:

 

  Newpower (2006, p. xii) claims there were 24 cases of circular running torpedoes, but avoids the topic because "it is not clear that any particular defect caused any or all of these circular runs." USS Tang was sunk by a Mark 18 (not a Mark 14); USS Tullibee may have been sunk by a Mark 18. USS Sargo had a circular run because the gyro was not installed.

giving Circular run torps to USN torp is historical accurate :tea_cap:

 

And then "accidental tk" complaints will shoot through the roof. :trollface:

Even with straight torps and some people are still struggle to avoid shooting at allies. :panic_fish:

Historical! We need historical buff! USN are more powerful than any navies in the world! Please buff! Give 20k alpha homing torpedoes

 

Anyway apart from autistic crying. Did u know IJN torps are irl more stealthy than USN steam torps? But why in game IJN DD are spotted from the moon while.... *Shot*

dont start with Long Lance historical accuracy

 

 

it is already  falling from the cliff

(10 km range instead of 40-60 km, up to 70 knots speed instead of 40 to 50 knots,  the most revealing torpedoes and even can be detected from the sky (or maybe satellite ) instead of nearly undetectable )

then can the long lances have their concealment, range and speed back to "historically accurate levels"?

 

that would be pretty OP

even 20 km range (half of the real one) already considered as camping weapon by WG and apparently lousy whiny BB player

Dont forget bro, the German have #1 science.... talking about Homing torpedo, they already have hydro search Torpedo for their sub.

 

SO ALL GERMAN DD SHOULD HAVE HOMING TORPEDO!!

if this game based on History, the Graf Zeppelin will habe Fritz X with 30K alpha damage for EACH BOMB.  who need 20K torpedo?

Since when WG cares on Historical? As long its "balance".. For now, even without Homing torps. USN DD have consistent Torp hits. Even with 2 quituple torps it have better ratio than ijn. USN DD is best torp boat tho. U can pump out more torps than IJN tho

In the latter years Germans had acoustic torpedos they where more or less homing torpedos that did not hit a ship but exploded underneath the ship and caused huge damage. Forget the US it was the German's you should be worried about.
