so i got the Ohio last morning, and i have to say, I'm not impressed

 

let's talk some pros and cons

 

Pro:

457 guns can overmatch most of the T10 CAs that now have 30mm decks and sides, turret traverse time is only second to kremlin's 

good secondaries to be used against DDs and as fire starters,  good range and accuracy even without manual secondaries & AFT

impressive AA suite, typical USN fly swatter

Montana hull, so good armor, easily abusable if you know how to angle belt armor

40s reloading repair party, you can heal back up to half health from 10k HP in just a bit over a minute and a half

 

Cons:

very floaty main gun shells, combined with only 8 shells, you are hard-pressed to hit targets at even 15-16kms. this is with the USN dispersion mod

the Georgia paradox, your shells hit hard, but every non-penn or non-damaging Penn hurts you a lot because of your lack of shells per salvo

the secondaries cannot Penn CAs or BBs, so unless you are getting rushed by a DD they are almost exclusively fire-starting in terms of having a chance to get some AA

speed is very slow for a T10 BB, 28kts is borderline unusable when you are a BB that is specialized for closer range engagements, getting monged down is a constant in this thing

 

muh stats

as much as I want to love this ship, and I really do like the concept of the ship, there are just too many things stacked against it. the biggest issue of which being it's own speed. i hope that WG can Buff the speed by just 1-2KTs and this ship would be able to perform much better, or even take the republic approach where they give it a low multiplier speed boost that brings it's speed up to 30kts 

 

the only game where I made this ship work...

neither, both of them suck in the state that they are in, and Colbert is borderline unplayable solo as of now, both the ships in the arsenal for coal are much better than these 2

WG should have listend to their players and dump the Rubbish Trashbin.

Ohio and Colbert would have been better off as steel ships.

 

Play low tier. Ha!

yep both are big stinkers and absolutely not worth the $400 aud in cost.

there are freemium tier 9 and 10 ships that are far superior.
