That seems to make sense, since in the Mediterranean I seem to recall a lot of the air combat was intercepting bombers which were attacking ships or positions in North Africa. The G.50 is not a good interceptor, but the Russians used their aircraft for low and slow ground support and the escorting of said ground support. Low altitude nad low speed, the G.50 is nothing short of incredible.

Well, I don't know exactly much about the G.50's career, but it seems that against bombers pretty much all Italian fighters had little problem. Against fighters, in the proper hands it could be a match for the Hurricane, but it wasn't a top-notch fighter.

It might have had an edge when it came to turning, but the British pilots soon learned not to try and dogfight with Italian fighters, I think (except in a Gladiator versus a CR.42 Falco).

 

One thing I do know is that the Finns liked their G.50s because their compressed air starter allowed them to go up quickly.

While one thing that they didn't like was that it was really tricky to land; either you did it properly, or you ended up in a wreck. There were quite a bit of landing incidents with the Freccia.

 

But we are slipping OT.

I'm anxious to see HMS Kempenfelt/HMCS Assiniboine, since while British originally, was transferred to Canada and Rammed U-210 so of all the ships, I'm anxious to see that one. Also Bismark, because Bismark!

 

But on that note... Best ship is usually the Ship that don't sink B)

So... Bismarck and Tirpitz.

funny way to spell USS Enterprise aka "The Grey Ghost"

 

Bismarck was skuttled by her own crew in order to end the hell of over 2000 shells and still wasn't close to sinking. Tirpitz required construction of a new bomb dropped with pint point accuracy from 2300 feet so it would go super sonic before hitting because the armour withstood so damn much, even then it took three direct hits from those to actually end her.

 

Edit: You said the best ship is the ship that don't sink. I think the class of ship that required the crew to scuttle their own ship after 2000+ shells of ammunition failed to do the job is a pretty darn good ship for that classification.

sorry nel, it was another no profile picture captain. I agree both ships are worthy of respect. Apologies, I was doing some friendly ribbing. Big E was sunk multiple times if the Japanese reports are to be believed ?

Ha ha! Aye that was me making that previous comment :D

 

You'll have to keep a weather eye out for us faceless captains as I'd wager more will sign on as the fleet gets closer to launch.

Nice! HMCS Assinboine I'd love to see also. She's commissioned in the '39 range so I'd expect to find her in the first wave then. Her, HMCS Skeena, & HMCS Saguenay all together on the Canadian front :P. So, from what I'm reading she 1) MV Hannover by towing & firefighting her fire 2) She twice spotted the same U-210, shot it with close-range weaponry, ramming the submerging submarine. She rammed her again while resurfacing, & dropped depth-charges on U-210 3) She tackled U-210 while gaining water under the water line. 4) She constantly had collisions & damages causing her to be constantly repaired. I do love it how our Canadian navy rams the submarines. Her, HMCS Ville de Quebec, and others.

 

Great taste on Bismarck & Tirpitz! Can't wait to have them under my command. Now that the awful Spring 2016 event is over I can finally wed my waifu, Bismarck in KanColle. Level her up some, then wed her. Can't wait :wub: . (Also seeing some envious people unable to respect the glorious Bismarck & Tirpitz. Nel also clearly mentioning why they're awesome.)

Yeah, HMCS Assiniboine was the first one I read about for ramming U-boats but oddly, this does not seem to be an isolated occurance. Was that a common tactic, or just something us Canadians seemed to do with Gusto? I know I've read of other Canadian ships ramming subs on what feels like a pretty regular schedule.

 

Edit Addition: Or maybe we've just watched too much Ben-Hur? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46LVYr3Q784

 

But yeah, Assiniboine was the first I read about so it's stuck out in my mind significantly more.

I understand and respect Bismarck and Tirpitz. But as an Englishman, it is my solemn duty to riff on them and show patriotic pride

Ya, ramming submarines is a common tactic. We Canadians simply used tactics already there, yet upped our game to just get stuff done. We were patriotically proud also that we wanted to do things right, not waste our time. With submarines stretching our navy so thinly we had to make use of what we had, and to exploit any weaknesses in the enemy ranks. Submarines, when damaged, sink so we rammed their fragile shells with our Flower-Corvettes & Destroyers when all else fails. We even had Native Americans scaring the hell out of sleeping Germans on the mainland while also using them to send secrets across Europe & such :P

Whatever you see people do in games, you can expect Canadians doing the same things. That is, if we haven't become pampered keyboard warriors in the process :wacko:
