    1. Sure. She’s like 100% the same. Same armor….same number of guns….same caliber guns….same AA…..same and secondaries….

      Yeah… just went full retard, friend.


  1. this is just a shitty Amagi with less range, terrible sigma, slow reload and i’m guessing it will still be as easy to citadel if it shows a tiny bit of broadside and to make up for all these it gets a few self defence only torps (that i wonder what launch angles it will get) there is nothing appealing about this ship for me.


    1. The actual Kii design had significantly better armor than Amagi. Whether that’ll be the case with this thing would require actually seeing it in the armor viewer.


      1. Probably akin to Zaos ass end torps. Exact same orientation, position and everything. So I’d expect extremely limited firing angles even worse than the conventional rearward facing torps the tier 9 and lower IJN cruisers get.


  2. I think that the one of the major selling points will be the AA on an IJN hull. The 446dps according to those stats is actually higher than Yamato @401.8 and I think comparable to USN BBs. Add to that that the short ranged AA is @ 3.1, and you get a pretty capable ship in that regard.


  3. This is a very pleasant surprise. If WG doesn’t screw up, Kii could be to Amagi what Alabama is to North Carolina – very similar but different at the same time (Kii having more armor, torps and AA, Amagi having better main gun stats, range and torp protection).

    I was planning on picking up the IJN BB line again, but at this point it might be wiser to just wait. :)


  4. Sigma 1.7 and torpedo shooting angles that are for now not known and armor viewer not available for us – what we are talking about. We know soo very little about that ship – that any talk for now is too early.

    And talking about myself – i wil rather not buy Kii just because … i am happy with my Tirpitz and want to master it.


  5. Tirpitz is a lot better it seems. It compensates for its lack of guns with secondaries that start fires all over the place, is faster and more armored, and also has better main armament handling..


    1. Apparently not. And we probably won’t get Tosa either, because will Wargaming really do 2 different Tier VIII premium IJN BBs? They’d just be competing with each other for sales, after all.
