An Iowa class battleship


Battleships may have once ruled the seas. But it is the legacy of those that still stand today to remind us of the days that their battles were won by the men that served on these ships.

Battleships are considered obsolete by today’s standereds due to powerful weapons that can penetrate the thickest armor such as certain torpedos. I’m no expert in navel warfair but what I do know is that destroyers specialize in offensive power rather then defense to be more maneuverable but at the same time more vulnerable to certain weapons. Even so one should never discount battleships from their combat prowess and in my opinion could still be used if outfitted with different weapon types. For example you could use them to take down lightly armed targets.

Thanks for adding Mares und Panzer to your favorites! Hope you enjoy! :heart:

Panzer vor!

2350709 But you need to take into account of the missiles being fired at the battleship. Battleships are large targets, and I wager that one of those fancy new land-ship or ship-ship missiles can take one out easily. The main reason battleships were removed from the battlefield is because of their large size and dismal maneuverability. I think that with the introduction of battleships, these ships would dish out high firepower at long ranges, armed with high velocity, high power guns and all the modern gadgets that a ship must have.
