  1. I came across this pretty interesting 1950s USN Training film on how the mechanisms for the Mark 1 Fire Control Computer and Mark 37 Gun Fire Control system works. It's basically a basics of how an analogue computer could be build to perform mathematical operations. These videos are more for the historian/engineer/mathematician nerds that lurks about these parts rather than for people looking for explosions. Enjoy!

  2. Having started OBT in Cruisers and Destroyers I have been steadily grinding the USN BB line and have reached the giddy heights of the New Mexico. The problem I am having is that playing it is causing my WR to drop (although EPG and DPG and other stats are actually going up). I know this has nothing to do with the ship, it is excellent for its tier. Playing slow BBs is taking a lot of getting used to, I think my biggest problem is taking lines on a map where I know I can flex from in a CA/DD but obviously can't in a NewMex. This means I tend to be chasing the battle way too much. How do you set your USN BB up on a map in order to get guns on target and be able to dominate like a BB should really do?
  3. I'm not sure if this has already been mentioned or addressed before in World of Warships, hence why I'm throwing that question out -- did WG state that they'd never let us control our secondary batteries? I'm quite certain that it wouldn't be absolutely game-breaking seeing that secondaries already have a lackluster range... it's just that I find it deplorable that we can't sync and aim these guns in relation to our main turrets - quite a lot of battleships had their secondaries linked to their main batteries and could fire a full broadside / control it all at the same time IIRC. To make it clear, when I say "control", I mean more than just click on a nearby ship and hoping that the AI doesn't derp -- I actually mean taking direct control of the batteries which would then act like your main batteries ( in hindsight, that'd probably feel like being a St. Louis ), and you could lead / fire as you please rather than letting the AI derp.
