Unfortunately, most of them will be slow (approx. 20 knots) until you get to tier8 :trollface:

20 knots? They will certainly get blown up by IJN torps easily if they don't have protection by cruisers...

Not necessarily. While they might be slower, they might also be capable of turning better than the faster IJN battleships due to their design.

Oh I presumed that their turning rate would be even slower due to the perceived "bulkiness". Usually a heavier mass results in a bigger moment of inertia i.e. slower turn rate.

 

Of coz dimension and shape also plays a factor into that.

Turning radius is a matter of propulsion, rudders and crucially, hull design. Some slower ships actually have a better turning radius than faster ones, because ship hulls that favour speed aren't really conducive to turning.

Engine power is part of the reason why they are slow, how good they are at turning depends more on their dimensions. WG also said that during next patch they'll tweak around with ship turning mechanism, longer ships will have wide turns while shorter ones (such as St. Louis and Kawachi) will turn better.

 

Even so, 20 knots BB are still juicy as hell :trollface:

I see. Still I think their slow speed would hurt them a lot as long as the DDs play smart and attack from two angles or even better, choose a favourable terrain for the engagement.

Historically, there's two. USS Missouri (Maine-class, BB-11) and USS Missouri (Iowa-class, BB-63). The former is a pre-dreadnought battleship which probably won't be in the game. The latter is a member of the Iowa-class of Fast Battleships which will be Tier 9 in 0.3.1.

 

Unless you're asking if Tier 9 is a tier in the game. Yes to that, too.

No, it's not. Just report it and ignore it.
