So I finally studied all tech tree,  saw each class grow for.last few years, first class I want to take tier 10 will be bb,  but sine arrival of us tech tree I am confuse now, can any one point out pros and cons of both ijn and use bb line so I can pick what will suit best for my playstyle,  just. Break it down simple, like we know on wot german  needs picking angle and aim while russian heavy got powerful gun but lacks accuracy,  can anyone simple it down like this.

No, we can't really simplify things down since USN battleships aren't in the game yet.

 

But anyway, it's predicted that up till around tier 7, USN battleships will generally be slower, but have better AA than their Japanese counterparts, and only pick up a higher top speed at tiers 8, 9 and 10.

 

The IJN battleship line is difficult to characterize given that we don't have anything to compare it against yet. Kawachi is slow, but heavily armed and armoured for a tier (though her range leaves a lot to be desired). Myogi is much faster, but has a weird turret placement. Kongou is fast and well-armed, but doesn't have very good AA. Fusou trades a lot of speed for two more gun turrets, but has a pretty big weak spot as a consequence. Pretty good AA,though. Nagato goes back down to four turrets, but the individual guns are bigger and hit better. She's also very well armoured. Amagi trades off armour for speed and firepower, and is up to five turrets. And then finally, Yamato, which goes back to heavy armour and big guns.

In general (as of now, BB only)

 

USN = God level anti-air, good maneuverability,high accuracy(maybe)

IJN = Epic firepower,good survivability , bad accuracy(my own experience)

but even US BB doesn't have barage ability which can screw bomber aim

 

Cruiser escort is still the best AA

They don't, but there fire control radars and crew are so good + the fact that the late IJN Pilots are not very good (Courageous but stupid at times) make their peformance excellent throughout the war. South Dakota essentailly saved Enterprise in the Battle of Santa Cruz - while Hornet is sunk as there just isn't enough AA protection (And a juicy target to distract :trollface:).

Well IRL AA rely on their Armaments capability and the Crew, and sometimes the movement of the target

Japan Didn't focus on their AA capability because at the early of the war they already have air superiority

AND USN Saw them as a threat and even more cautious for this Kamikaze thing

Seems Divine Wind Doctrine took the effect of IJN Pilot Usefulness

i think every ships have decent or good accuracy :hiding:

the only thing that diffrent is USN ships reload so fast, viry fast

Japanese BB's accuracy is really poor, it may be better in US BB's, and they may have more guns although will be slower.


 

In the end it would still be good to go down both lines as each ship at each tier is different in some way, so enjoy them all...
