Is it true that none of the U.S. Battleships are included with PF? I hope not but if so are they going to be added via a patch.

How are we supposed to do Pearl Harbor without the famous U.S. Battleship Row being present? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Who told you this? There are a lot of screenshots around here with US battleships on them.

Don't believe everything you hear

The ships are all totally correct.

The KGV class was so successful that all navies in WWII copied it and produced many ships.

The pictures you see IRL of the American and Japanese battleships are just propeganda. Really, they all looked just like KGV.

Having modelled this ship for PF, I am glad it is getting the recognition it deserves http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

But you needn't worry. Like planes, more ships are coming in the patches. I can only guess that some US/IJN battleships will be included too.

Nice one Fennec. Now you wouldn't like to make me a Repulse to go with the Prince of Wales would you? Btw I'd settle for the Hood. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Strangely, there is not a lot of reference material concerning the Hood in the Pacific.

Thank you for only giving us British BBs. They had unstable ammo and if hit right blow up and sink quickly http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

Oh Battleship Row is indeed present in the Ford Island/Pearl Harbor scenario that comes with PF...problem is, the U.S. Warships all look the KG5, prompting my gunner to exclaim, as I dove the Val in..."Err, are we bombing the right targets, Rodion-san?" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

IJN HQ: "Tora tora tora?"

Fuchida: "Negative! The ships are not in harbor! Only KGVs! D*mn informers! They have betrayed us!"

Yamamoto: "Somehow I knew. We've lost the war before starting."

I knew that! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif. Not a lot of reference for the Tirpitz in the Gulf of Finland either but we still got her. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Although to be fair she did do some pre-war 'fly the flag' visits to the colonies.

What about that "generic US Battleship" you can select in the FMB?

Yes there is a "generic US Battleship" available, but the 3D model it uses (and perhaps even the damage model) is that of the HMS King George V. Those 4-gun forward turrets are a dead givaway while diving your Val at Ford Island.

The ship list that they put out a few weeks ago listed the Arizona and Colorado. It seems these BBs weren't the only ones not make it in the release. IIRC, the Kongo, Takao, Shinano, and Yorktown were other classes of ships that were on that list that I have yet to see any pics of.

If any of those ships are actually in the game now, it'd be great if anyone who has it could post some pics.

ONE THINGS FOR SURE KGV NO WHERE NEAR LOOKS CLOSE TO THE ARIZONA OR THE CALIFORNIA CLASS BBs
BUT I CAN GET YOU CLOSER BUT IT USES THE OLD FLAK http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif IT THE RUSSIAN CRUSIER AS THE california and simular classes WHERE NOT TRUE BBs they are realy class'es the only true bbs in the harb was nervada and arizona cali was a hvy battle cruiser but as i said the russian light cruiser loos simular to the us ships in pearl at the time also im willing to bet that oleg was rleieing on us to use our brains to replace the kgvs with the russian light cruisers

Since I discovered the FMB, I go to bed at 3:00am wake up at 7:00am and try to fix cars the lazy way all day. I love the ships, I hope there's more in the futur.


*off topic: to germans...why do you use bolts instead of studs to hold the wheels on all your cars?
