A Penguin Plays RULE THE WAVES

It really is a pity that RTW doesn't allow me to mix turrets, because that makes sense.

If I'm being chased, it's probably by a Battle Cruiser, so some lighter rear guns would perforate their armor. Seems like IRL, only fast ships can try for a rear approach anyway.
Yeah, one of my issues with both games is that you cannot choose the position of the secondaries, so I've added the 6 inchers for secondaries and 4 inch DP autoloaders as tertiary guns. It's no Iowa, but downtimers won't notice the difference anyway. It's kinda maddening, though, the ships we designed in the Thirties under treaty limitations were wonders of balancing all constraints (Richelieu BB, Émile Bertin CL and Algérie CA) and not only did the treaties fell through, but the ships didn't get used anyway.

Now, if they could finally add ship to ship missiles, I could get a Zipang scenario with a Japanese DDG going back in time.

Ugh. Unlike the Italians their DDs don't have the guts.

Odd to say that now.

Italians have earned my respect.



They didn't even bother to trawl the shoreline.
Just a perfunctory in and out.

You were about to ram an island.

>> CA ADONTBE> We swept the shoreline with lights to see if there were any ambushers like before.

>> CA ADONTBE> (proudly) I successfully prevented ADOBO from bombarding the cliffs and fighting trees.


I have a feeling she'd have lost that fight anyway.

>> CA ADOBO> If I beat THE ROCK I would be world superheavy fights champion!

That's Gibraltar.
We hold Gibraltar.

>> CA ADOBO> Gotta practice on pebbles first?

All right. So. I said that I've finished Spain up to 1925. There are several more good wars up ahead with even more craziness afoot.

So now that I just have to slowly post things while repeatedly right-clicking "Copy Dropbox link" until my shitty cell internet registers it, I've been trying other nations in curiosity. What works for Spain more or less works for Italy too. They are practically brothers.

It completely does not work for Japan.

Spain, if you thought you had shit all for funding, hahaha you have not seen Japan's wallet.

I mean that literally, someone stole their wallet. Where were you at approximately 3PM yesterday?

Yeah, Japan is a bit easier and harder from my experience, easier in that it's alone in its home area and doesn't have a lot of colonies to manage, but harder due to the lack of budget and late westernization. It does really shine in RTW 2 due to its late-game power via research boost in naval aviation.

There is Russia.

But Russia is kinda... Russia.
 
86.1 WAR! - Spain vs Italy and Austria-Hungary - August 1911 New

Blast.
Well, it won't arrive in time for this war anyway.

It's fine.


That we are blockaded AGAIN is not fine.


Since apparently 5000 tons of AMC don't do anything to defer being blockaded, let's put them into Raiding duty and see if that causes them any more problems.




Get it done.

Dang, this starts being a pretty long war by now. Any chance of getting a decisive battle? Also, do you have any colonies that could be lost if you lose the war?

We already had the decisive battle with Italy, they only have one BB left.

Austria-Hungary... well, we just have to wait for it to proc. So far it's been Armored Cruiser action.

I wonder if in a run there was zero Armored Cruisers and instead a fast pocket battleship, would events like escorts and raids still proc? Brb, testing.

There would, you would just have events where you cannot bring forces to battle even after accepting or where you actually have the battleship deployed.
