Why can we not have imerial measurments on wepons and also speed in knots because that is what it should be read as not in kph also wepons i think sound better when they are in imperial eg 18 inc as opposed to that metric shite..... just saying ex R.N.Z.N

The only country that still use the imperial system is Americans. Are you one of them ?

And in anycase , the imperial system is only relevant in aviation and sea faring due to the knots being a useful measurement.

However , the majority of players are NOT in those two fields. 

And you can't even spell the thing right or bother fixing them so that your idea come across correctly. Grammar school should be your next stop.

because even in imperial and metric countries, rate of penetration mostly measured in cm/mm.

and in this game you have 18 In - 457mm and also 18 in - 460mm. but those small diffrence show the player is the weapon that can overmatch armor plating and the one that dont.

also IFHE that improve penetration of weapons. if you have 4.35 inch gun + IFHE = then how confused you would be 🤣

There's a mod in Aslain's that adds imperial measurements to gun diameters.

Gunnery measurements use geographical measures, not nautical (other than weapon ranges from the ship), thus shell sizes and muzzle velocities etc. are in standard metric or imperials measures. Why?; gunnery development and testing is usually done with, for, or by the Army as many naval guns are/where versions of land artillery guns, and even if not, for commonality the terminology and measures for land and naval guns are keep the same.

My biggest gripe about measurements is that the fact that WoWS correctly uses knots as a speed reference but then switches to metric land measurements for things like ranges and turning circles. Ranges should be in nautical miles and turning circles should be in either fractions of a nautical mile or in cables (cable = 1/10 of a Nm) etc.
