Gearing is way too big but I heard that WG are currently making overhaul of all American Destroyer's modeling. I hope they make better than now

Q : Gearing's in-game model is disproportionately large compared to Yueyang's, despite her being only 4.3 metres longer than her IRL, other dimensions being roughly the same. Are there any plans to fix this? 

A : Reworking old models is an important, but not first priority process (compared to the new content). 

However, I am very happy to confirm that our 3D team is working on a big update to US DD models. It won't be completed super quickly, but the fact it's halfway there means that it WILL happen. Current status is:

1. Sampson: model done, texturing in progress.
2. Wickes: on hold.
3. Clemson: model done, texturing in progress.
4. Nicholas: on hold.
5. Farragut: model in progress.
6. Mahan: model done, texturing in progress.
7. Benson: model in progress (superstructure already, so nearly done).
8. Fletcher: model done, texturing in progress.
9. Gearing: model nearly done.

There are very high chances they all will be finished and released within 2020, unless some sudden complications arise.

According to the status, I believe the first to be fully ready will be Clemson, Sampson, Mahan and Fletcher. I also think we will not wait for the whole batch and most likely will release them as they are completed.

Hmmm... let's wait and see.

Great post.  When Yue Yang was first released, this was one of the major things in its favour when compared to Gearing.  There's easily 20% less of the ship to actually hit!

Unfortunately, we all know what happened to the poor Yue Yang, and although it has had a few buffs since then, it's still a complete shadow of its former self.

It will be nice when the Gearing remodel is complete - hopefully it is similar in size to the Yue Yang model (although slightly longer obviously!).

Gearing in particular could use some love, but all the tech tree USN DDs seem underperforming these days.

Gearing just need separate DFAA consum and speed boost so she will not overshadowed by Halland... thats just what gearing need right now...

That's actually a really good suggestion! A little more speed would go a long way to making Gearing feel relevant. Being clumsy is bad, but being both slow and clumsy is a real turnoff.

(I usually play Benson or Fletcher. So many times I've bumped into a torp in Gearing that I expected to be able to dodge. It's bigger than you expect, and so much slower to turn.)
