I'm not much of a naval buff.

(I'm really not that buffed at anything at all).

So every now and then I go looking up ships I play to see if they were real and how they went.

I just looked up USS North Carolina.

After reading her history, I kind of feel she should have been reserved to be a premium ship!

It's a known rule that ship names in the tech tree are names of the class, not name of any individual ship... If the class was officially named, anyway. Paper ships are named at will.

One exception though, it's Helena, because her class is St. Louis. If the T7 was Brooklyn, it'd be easier to balance, and avoid the rule above being violated.

Bismarck actually deserves to be a premium more than Tirpitz. At least Bismarck got a frag and ~5 million potential damage before sinking. What did her sister ever do? Got bombed by the RN?

My Nana got bombed by a USN sailor in WW2.

That's why my dad.

Naughty Nana.

RIP Nan. I love you.

(And then half Australian Irish, half Scottish, 1/4 German, 1/16 Prussian, 1/24 English and 400% bad at maths).

Yep apart from USS South Dakota, USS North Carolina saw a lot of battles in WW2 as well and earned 15 Battle Stars - Most Decorated Battleship in WW2. I m glad the US government preserve it well, unlike RN scrapped the Old Lady Warspite......

I think it cost a lot to maintain those veteran ships, even as preserved monument / war memorial.

For Royal Navy, they given up they status as Ruler of The Waves at the end of WW2. They scrap most of they BBs. And sadly, many of their CVs are sold to other countries. WW2 cost them a lot.

If anyone's interested, before the class was designed with 3x3 406 mm guns (escalation clauses and stuffs), the USN gave the class 3x4 356 mm guns.

That, to me, is a freaking good premium ship material right there. Tier 8. Crappy reload and dispersion, but US super heavy shells... If T9, can have better reload.

Sounds good, @Max_Battle ?

I think you and I both play enough BBs with crappy dispersion 😛

Ja?

Oh I'm in favour of any and all US BB premiums... though I don't have Alabama, Mass or Missy...

Actually sounds like a terror weapon 😛

Like when a German Bb fires at you from ages away and you have no idea what's going to happen....

So, does this signify you are the product of forum innuendo?

You know what this means for you if this thread gets deleted?

Speaking of premium ships... 

When will WG release a German Free xp/Arsenal ships? :cap_old:

It's not like there aren't any candidate... Germany was the fourth nation in the game to have a full researchable ship line!

Well now I'm torn.

Thank you very much.

Don't know whether to respond with, "ERMERGERD! BERCK TER TER FERTERR! ER LERV THERT!!!!"

Or make some funny remark about the gif being a metaphor for my life - people holding up things in front of me that are obviously fake, bizarre and absurd and me having to pretend they are real.

Thanks for the confusion.
