In reality, design is some mix and compromise of the above, with a fleet providing all or most of the ideal in individual vessels grouped together. One could compare it with ANY class in World of Tanks. 1942- Cushing, Laffey, and Sterett vs Hiei. by alecsandros » Tue Feb 14, 2012 6:47 am, Post As can be seen from the differences in armament, the two types of vessel were used differently in battle. Three major fleet actions between steel battleships took place: the decisive battles of the Yellow Sea (1904) and Tsushima (1905) during the Russo-Japanese War, and the inconclusive Battle of Jutland (1916) during the First World War. Destroyers and Frigates are pretty similar and what one nation calls one another will call the other. Balance changes are made on large data collections on each ship, so balancing around a situation that rarely happens is not really feasable. On the other hand, frigates are more common, with almost every navy in the world in possession of a frigate as part of its navy fleet, while only 13 nations possess destroyers, according to the Global Fire Power Index 2019. I disagree. It's simply a last resort mechanic for BBs to fight back. The armament of battleships and destroyers was completely different. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries the battleship was the most powerful type of warship, and a fleet of battleships was considered vital for any nation that desired to maintain command of the sea. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, More posts from the explainlikeimfive community. A battleship is a large armored warship with a main battery consisting of large caliber guns. A global arms race in battleship construction began in Europe in the 1890s and culminated at the decisive Battle of Tsushima in 1905, the outcome of which significantly influenced the design of HMS Dreadnought. the lone battleship was unlucky and ended up against a prey it can hardly compete with. The Second World War saw air attack become the dominant form of naval warfare; aircraft carriers could attack targets far beyond the reach of even the biggest battleship cannons. you cant avoid what you cant see. The heart of naval strategy is to deny the use of sea transport to the enemy, and to protect one's own merchant fleet. The second and third (in production) ships are estimated to be cheaper, at $2.8bn and $2.4bn respectively. Their armor and guns were planned to be strong enough and powerful enough to allow them to dominate any area of the oceans outside of the range of battleship guns. Battleships have guns with 10-18 inch diameters, cruisers more like 6-8, destroyers 3-5 and frigates the same. A frigate could literally run circles around an aircraft carrier that was attempting to stop, accelerate, or turn. These ships were something like destroyers, but were generally slower, smaller, longer ranged, and were designed to detect and fight submarines. That is a simple fact. At the start of the 21st century, destroyers are the global standard for surface combatant ships, with only two nations (United States and Russia) operating the heavier class cruisers, with no battleships or true battlecruisers remaining. Now change the tanks with ships and you have World of Warships. by jrsteven00 » Mon Feb 13, 2012 9:19 pm, Post Strongly agree. It is very difficult to pinpoint the unit prices of certain classes of ship, let alone types of ships. Destroyer warships come in a range of sizes. Cant tell you how many times I've been in this situation. The role of the battleship was to engage enemy vessels with its heavy main armament, while the destroyer screened larger vessels from fast attackers such as aircraft, submarnies and smaller boats. They serve different rolls, countries defend their expensive assets with cheap ones. They're used in many navies. 3. Similar could be said for any 1v1 tank class match-up. Someone starts designing a ship to do something, and thinks it's a frigate, so calls it a frigate, the design creeps a bit, and it becomes the size of a destroyer but all the paperwork still says frigate so you call it a frigate. Even in spite of their huge firepower and protection, battleships were increasingly vulnerable to much smaller and relatively inexpensive weapons: initially the torpedo and the naval mine, and later aircraft and the guided missile. Battlecruisers made some sense for Britain fearing war with France or America, but against the germans who basically gave up on naval shipping they turned out to not work so well. Japan comes in second with 37, followed by China, which owns 33 vessels. You can see why frigates and destroyers regularly get overlapping sizes and classes. In contrast, frigate ships are much more cost-efficient. The first battleships were built in the 1870s by the French navy. Its role was to engage and destroy other large enemy ships or to bombard the shore. In 2006, the U.S. Navy removed them from its register. A battleship was designed to OWN the sea, the ultimate symbol of naval power, hence they were huge. Published: 27 May, 2018. A Cruiser is a ship that is designed to be able to run independently of a fleet, even though they were quite often found in fleets. They can thus provide theatre wide air and missile defence for forces such as a carrier battle group and typically serve this function. Astute vs Virginia: Which navy has the best nuclear attack submarine? by Dave Saxton » Thu Feb 09, 2012 4:17 am, Post They are roughly the same width as destroyer vessels. It differs from a submersible, which has more limited underwater capability. The Duke class is equipped with two twin Sting Ray torpedo tubes and can accommodate either a Westland Lynx helicopter armed with two torpedoes or a Westland Merlin with four torpedoes. Imagine how WoT would be if Light tanks could shoot some kind of arty shells without loosing camo. It's really only useful to look at ship classes in their time period. Jump to navigation Jump to search. “The key distinction between frigates and destroyers is size and, by extension, function,” says Dr Sidharth Kaushal, a research fellow at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies. Lots of big navies had many battleships and many cruisers. Not really disagreeing with what other people said but it's sometimes illustrative to consider numbers. By contrast, a contemporary destroyer, USS McGowan, carried only five 5-inch guns, but 17 anti-aircraft guns along with torpedo tubes and depth charge projectors. What is the difference between these two vessels? The main difference between Destroyer and Battleship is that the Destroyer is a fast and maneuverable escort warship and Battleship is a large armored warship with a main battery consisting of heavy caliber guns.

What does the DD get to balance it? a small fast lightly armored but heavily armed warship. Perhaps there could be a consumable that reveals all enemy ships within X km for a couple of seconds, allowing an absolute last chance to sink the DD? The Yamato has a massive defensive armor belt that is internal to the ship and angled to stop gunfire. The commerce raiding duties of cruisers were handled by submarines and heavy bombers dropping mines. But the point of this topic was to discuss game balance and whether the fact is fair, fun, and an acceptable element of the game, or if it's not. I had my database search for battles where one side had at least one battleship while the other had no battleships but did have destroyers (and maybe other ship types too). I feel like these BBs could at least been given one of the 2 options. There were few of the decisive fleet battles that battleship proponents expected, and used to justify the vast resources spent on building battlefleets. A Battleship is an obsolete type of ship that exists in no current navy. You're streching it. For example, the USS Mississippi, which fought in the Battle of the Surigao Strait in 1944, probably the last battleship battle in history, carried 12 14-inch guns as her main armament, along with 12 5-inch guns, four 3-inch guns and a pair of torpedo tubes. A former editor of "Archaeological Review from Cambridge," he has also written for Fortean Times, Fantasy Flight Games and The Unspeakable Oath. You also had Battlecruisers which were more lightly armoured Battleships. Views: 10,242. a person or thing that destroys something, "CFCs are the chief destroyers of the ozone layer". And you must remember the "Rock,paper, scissors" concept the ship classes are supposed to follow. Subsequent battleship designs, influenced by HMS Dreadnought, were referred to as "dreadnoughts", though the term eventually became obsolete as they became the only type of battleship in common use. From the Washington Naval Treaty to the end of the Second World War. Non-functional rocket stage, used for configuration and integration tests. A small, fast warship with light armament, smaller than a cruiser, but bigger than a frigate. link, In modern navies, frigates are used to protect other warships and merchant-marine ships, especially as anti-submarine warfare (ASW) combatants for amphibious expeditionary forces, underway replenishment groups, and merchant convoys. Battleships were the largest, fastest, most heavily armored ships, armed with the most powerful guns, that nations could afford to build. A one-time, one-chance consumable is hardly "one-shotting any DD anytime". Although there are some similarities between them, the two types of vessels are different in many ways. Regardless of how old we are, we never stop learning. In fact, if such a 1v1 situation occurs at the end of the battle, there is a whole lot more wrong with how the battle went than with how it will end. Much thanks for all of your contributions - especially the exhaustive list by Keith Enge. Followers 4. Just my 2 cents. a heavy warship of a type built chiefly in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with extensive armour protection and large-calibre guns. Naval Vessel Register in the 2000s. by Dave Saxton » Mon Feb 13, 2012 1:22 am, Post link. War vessels typically increase speed and maneuverability as size, armor, and armament decrease. One of the faster frigate ships is the Indian Navy’s Shivalik class that is touted to travel up to 32kn (59km/h) at max speed, while others range between 26-30kn (48-55km/h). Prior to WW1 there were battleships in the 20K tonne range, and they kept getting bigger. 1. Modern destroyer vessels peak at around 33kn (61km/h), while the fastest ever recorded destroyer was the French Navy’s Le Terrible that reached 45.1kn (83.5km/h) during sea trials in 1935. Tough luck, life is not fair. Some destroyers have been modified specifically for launching anti-ship and anti-aircraft guided missiles. Before World War II destroyers were light vessels with little endurance for unattended ocean operations; typically a number of destroyers and a single destroyer tender operated together. What I'm saying is: If a team works as a team there won't be any of those situations in the end game. a small, fast warship, especially one equipped for a defensive role against submarines and aircraft. But if one BB manages to elude the enemy team for so long that he's the last man standing and the enemy team manages to all die but one DD, why not just accept the other teams advantage in that situation and get over it? The very first model – the DDG 1000 – cost around $4.2bn according to USNI News, $3.8bn for non-recurring engineering costs and an additional $400m for post-delivery and outfitting. I never spotted the enemy Destroyer and for several minutes I was just sailing around and dodging torpedoes, but in the end got destroyed. Jutland was the largest naval battle and the only full-scale clash of battleships in the war, and it was the last major battle fought primarily by battleships in world history. Her crew was just over 300. the lone battleship was unlucky and ended up against a prey it can hardly compete with.
