I just noticed it in the game's image Furutaka has Twin Cannons

And..... i researched the © Hull and ITS STILL THE SAME AS THE 1930 Hull!

Any of you guys noticed it?

(Insert Image of Furutaka 1940 Design, since i can't put the Image >_>)

Hence they no longer use stuff like "Furutaka 1940"(I believe it's 1930 in the first place anyway) but instead "Furutaka C".

 

And if it had the twin gun turret, it can probably be a Tier 6. If it has to have that, it probably had horrible soft stats (Something like 50 Second Turret Turn time or Vastly lowered ROF).

 

So No unfortunately.

The Design is STILL BAD AS EVER, but the game shows in the image Tech Tree Furutaka HAS Twin cannons.

Iowa had 33 knots speed historically. Do they give her 33 knots speed?

 

This is WG we're talking about, take it easy. You should be "Grateful" for her to get a buff.

current furutaka is already a formidable ship, twin 203mm guns at tier 5 is going to be Overpowered.

Syanda is spot on.

The twin gun configuration of the Furutaka is basically the same gun layout as the Aoba. 

It stands to reason as the Aoba and Kinugasa were essentially Furutaka sister ships, although they were already twin gun turret armed when launched with Furutaka and Kako being refit later.

I'd prefer a Charles F Adams class DDG in that case :)
