Hey guys! Today we have three new ships announced via the DevBlog, two of which I have been wanting to see in game for awhile. Oh also my PC exploded. Enjoy!

Technically the Gibraltar is what the Goliath should have been from the start, it’s the cruiser that was made to fulfill Churchill’s ideas Seems nice imo, as well as Bearn The Tulsa is pointless Still, the name of the British triggers my little Spanish pride
We’ve had Gibraltar for longer now than you ever had it in the first place :p
PC? Lol I didn’t know pc’s had a citadel ;~) EDIT: also, you are nuts. Buying a whole new pc when you have a 2080ti and a 3090 with an i7 and an i9 cpus AND 32GB and 64GB of memory? These are not consoles, you just get the bits you need, not a whole new setup when you have thousands in parts sat on your desk waiting to be used. madman lol. Also on a side note you dont need a case, you could have all the bits lying around on the desk or stick them in shoe boxes. Cases are, or were now with the prettyiness and other such stuff, just somewhere to keep the bits safe from knocking and dust and such. You think 4 years is old? lol. I still working on my 2600k and DDR3 from back in 2011.
I play the game in 4K comfortably with a 6th gen i5, a GTX 1060, and 16gb of ram. Oh, and a hard disk drive, not even ssd. I can record in 4K too, but haven’t tried streaming in 4K.
@Bill Walker if you listen, I had my PC on a surge protector. I have never had a surge come through the Ethernet before, I did not even know it was a thing. The reason I’m getting a whole new system is that it’s more cost effective to just bite the bullet and do that then order more parts with the price of PC parts atm.
@Sea Lord Mountbatten SLM, I listened to those first 4 minutes 2X more and nowhere do say you used a surge protector. I’m am older than you (66) so if you said it please me the time mark so I can berate myself.
Still love the video.
@Sea Lord Mountbatten Keep in mind cable comes from outside your house. In my New Jersey area cables are on telephone poles and, like electrical feeds, drop to the houses. A lot of ways to get induced electrical charge into the house and through the modem. Static electricity is another destroyer of electrical components. Many people build up a static charge (particularly in winter) and inadvertently discharge through the keyboard to the motherboard via the USB cable.
@turtwig321 I originally played with a 1050 ti, 16GB ram and 256 GB SSD. SSD will spoil you with its speed. Computer totally up in 15 sec. Even better now with my 2070 super (not MaxQ) and 300 hz refresh rate screen (ASUS Zepherus laptop).
Yes, the Béarn. I’m French so it’s normal if I’m so happy
Hi I’m English and I’m glad to see that you finally get to join the mile high club with the rest of use! (We don’t talk about the Russians being apart of the club) I’ve actually been wanting MN CVs for a while lol.
This was hilarious! Well done MacGyver!
Not happy with how they made Gibraltar , it should look like a scaled down KGV but it’s another WG version of what was a good looking design.
what is KGV?
@Leonardo Arie wibowo King George V
@Thulram oh thxs
It looks like Tulsa’s gimmick is that her guns are Des Moines guns
Tulsa looks like Des Moines with 2-gun turrets instead of 3-gun.
Good job on the PC build.
would suggest buying a gigabit PCIe card if your previous board still had a free 4x slot. I had to since the Type C to Ethernet was cutting out. It’s the cheap $10 fix compared to $50+ and an hour or so of your time.
I’ve got a very similar setup to Lifeboat One going on if it makes you feel any better SLM. I built my machine in 2013 on Haswell’s launch. 4770K, 32GB of DDR3, 2080Ti (the only part I’ve upgraded) a couple of SSDs and a HDD for storage. I plan on replacing it when DDR5 launches with a Ryzen system.
Another British ship that isn’t HE main?! Well, I’ll take it.
Looking at Tulsa’s turrets (and especially the guns), I wonder if those are Des Moines autoloading guns, which would give the ship insanely quick reload times
On stream they confirmed they are des moines autoloaders
That’s what I’m thinking, from the look of the guns.
Disappointing to see no model changes discerning Gibraltar from Goliath, it really helps distinguish the ships visually. Sorry to hear about your PC.
Also, Gibraltar is probably going to be a coal ship
Will Bearn get her historical torpedo tubes? This is my main question.
I can already imagine the unsuspecting DDs getting torped
On the one hand, most BB’s that had them are missing their torpedo tubes in game, so i want to say no, but on the other hand, she’s a CV, so i wouldnt be surprised if they not inly give them to her, but also make them automatic, homing, and have a 20 second reload.
@Daniel Morgan I think the thing was if they are hull mounted torps they can’t be added.
@Alfredo Sierra except we now know that to be a lie because of the submarines. They use the exact same type of hull mounted torpedos as the Battleships.
Finally a CV line from a nation that actually operates Aircraft Carriers
The Bearn is what Zeppy was competing with, most of the design aspects of Zeppy was influenced by the Brean but the flight deck on Zeppy was a copy of Akagi. Glad to see this ship! I love the British navy but I don’t know how to feel about a British supercruiser I much prefer the idea of everyone getting a supercruiser while the British get battlecruisers instead to be fair that’s probably how it would have happened anyway as we called everything a battlecruiser lol.
Zeppelin was desgined using the Akagi blueprints. Bearn was outdated when she was commisioned.
Gibraltar is not a super cruiser like the Alaska or Petro, its just a heavy cruiser, its effectively a Goliath that trades the HE out for light cruiser consumables and better shell groupings , though it does sound like Wargaming may have gone ‘What if we took the RN light cruiser line and made a version of the Goliath for that’ so I am somewhat worried about the armour setup its going to have, though it sounds like it will be an excellent light cruiser killer.
It’s what the golioth should have been. It’s a design that was to be built if the German navy actually put up a fight ,goes by the name Churchill class usually. WG knew about it but obviously wanted to sell it than give use an actual design that almost got laid down.
Gibraltar and Goliath have the same # of guns it just has more forward cuz quad turrets
@NotTheATF ???? You may want to get your eyes checked. Goliath has 3×3 turrets (9 guns) while the Gibraltar is a planned 3×4 (12guns).
@NotTheATF You are correct, somehow mixed thought the Goliath had the Drake’s gun layout, have corrected that. Though the 3×4 will give a tighter shell grouping that the 4×3.
Oh yes the sole French CV that I’ve been looking forward to! I’m excited for her though in the wake of of these paper ships we’ve been getting lately like freaking Russian CV’s?! Finally we get the one carrier that the French actually operated before and during WW2. Hopefully the Italian CV Aquila will come next!
I was hoping bearn would be in the hopeful future French cv line. Now there will be no actual French built cvs in their line…
Yeah, I’d like to have a spare 2080ti. Those are still some insane specs for a “Frankenstein”-PC. I hope you chose Ryzen for your new system. It is superior to Intel 😛
