Does anyone else feel like that the Warspite max gun range 16km is a bit unfair?

Seeing as she does have 15" cannons and IRL has the longest confirmed ship kill from a Battleship

Nop, sure the range is 16 KM but the shot grouping is much narrower. Dunno for sure since havent played it at all lol ( my info is based on Ichase's and Jingle's review of the ship) and the maneuverability is sweet

The ship went through modification during WWII that raised max gun elevation (thus allows longer range).

That historical long-range kill was made after such modification.

In-game version of Warspite has configuration dated BEFORE such modification was made.

 

Thus, this is relatively historically accurate.

 

Range is IJN BB's main trait (atleast for mid-tier), but Warspite has edge over accuracy. Try to play it like medium-short range brawler, she has shorter detectability range than her max gun range, in 1v1 situation she can close into gun range before the enemy can spot her.

 

Review/Guide:

You do realise most USN BB's have the same approximate max range when fully upgraded, the New Mexico for example has a similar range. The long range is a speciality of the IJN BB's. If it really bothers you, you can get the range upgrade/module which boosts range by 16%. :B

Only USN BB gets access to range upgrade early, other nations get accuracy boost equipment instead.

Warspites a brawler, she best behaves in the thick of it, maximizing her incredible rudder shift, and accurate (if short ranged) 15'n guns, which do much more Pen than a 14'n.

If you pick upgrades focus on the secondary upgrades# both the purchase slot and the perk, having a 6k+ range on her secondary battery at the warspites tier is deadly for any DD or CA that tries to close the distance.

hey man! the 16km range isn't what bothers me. its the EXTREMELY slow turret rotation that i feel is a huge disadvantage.
