UPDATE: France takes "best at 5km/10km" from Yamato

A/B/C/(D) = penetration at 5/10/15/20km, NA means either the ship cannot reach that far without a spotter or the shell takes too long to fly that the value does not practically worth being used in comparison.

UNDERLINED means the gun has the best penetration at the tier&range

ITALIC means the gun has the worst penetration at the tier&range.

SHIP (a/b/c/d) A/B/C/D means the stock hull has a less powerful shell and the data in the brackets is for reference only and will not participate in the comparison

(ship A/B/C/D) means the ship is not designed for traditional BB gameplay and the data does not participate in the comparison

 

Ahhhhhhh done, nighty night guys

IIRC there's even a calculator for penetration of guns at any specified range... Data in my post came from wowsft, I just sorted it out for easy comparison

Best for AP pens. But not all battles / duels are fought on AP only. 

 

 

Honestly, Kongo is the best imo. The speed gives it the flexibility it requires, and the Konig gets secondaries that counts for a lot at that tier

No, it's because she's better at everything: better guns than Mikasa, better speed than South Carolina, better AA than Arkansas, better armour than Tenryuu, the list goes on. She is OP.

 

Hah, but does she have torpedoes?

She doesn't need them - nothing can survive her ferocious Secondary Gun onslaught. (better than Aoba's secondaries better than Chikuma's secondaries)

Why troll NY :cry:

 

I will destroy all you kongo lovers with her ... here I come :cap_rambo::Smile_izmena: 

 

Murica!!!!!!

 

My Colorado awaits to whoop New York's butt  :Smile_playing: :etc_hide_turtle:

 

Seriously, Colorado brutally violates the New York and I have been in both the giving end and receiving end. I have been enjoying the New York a lot, until I get two-shotted by a Colorado regardless of what I did to mitigate the damage. The MM change is the final nail in the coffin for me playing the New York.

I was surprised too. Thought the 13.5"/45 would sit somewhere between 14"/45s and 12" SK L/50. Historically the 13.5" after shell upgrade was some of the most powerful guns of WWI. Well, "balanced"
