Premium Ship Suggestion

USS Wyoming 1944 refit for training purposes.

Wouldn't this be nice as a premium ship. Although it may cause Khaba-like matchmaking issues due to getting a BB slot but lacks BB firepower plus it's easy prey for cruisers.

10 5-inch 38 guns. Rate of fire around 20rpm. Atlanta-ish AA.

As you can see, it has a 10-gun starboard broadside, but only a 6-gun port broadside.

The concept looks interesting , problem is it is too slow for the 5inch/38 rather questionable effective range.

As with other US dreadnoughts , it will be over before you get there simply because you have neither the range nor the speed to contribute.

Although you could give it something like 3s reload and demolish anyone getting into 10km range , i doubt you will be coming out of it alive.

And combined with this server rather campy nature , i doubt it will be popular enough.

Still interesting though

While it looks to be an interesting ship, I am not sure how WG is going to balance it.

It looks like it is just going to be kited to death. At the same time those guns will just murder CV planes.

yep the campy meta sure is an issue plus cruisers will love shooting this.

So i suggest these base stats for starters:

Tier 6

HP : 44000

Armor: 19 mm bow and stern

Deck Armor/ Aft deck/ Bow deck: 38mm

Range: 13 km

Reload: 3 seconds

Speed : 21 knots

Turning: 550m

Rudder: 12 sec

Concealment base: 12 km

Consumables: Cruiser DamCon, Def AA, Standard Heal (maybe Missouri Radar as this is a niche ship), Special Speed boost 20%

Enhanced acceleration for supermaneuverability.

Looks arcadey but a potential fun ship.
