Constellation is the new battlecruiser. She looks like a dreadnought, but isn’t one. She’s fast, has radar and torps!
The ship was given to me by Wargaming.

  1. Ahh. The Lexington if she wasn’t converted into a aircraft carrier. But Washington Naval Treaty had to happen.

  2. A day late. Sorry. The ship is good though. I’ve won my last 12 games in her (probably extremely lucky).

  3. man i love battlecruisers 😀

  4. seeratlas d' Tyria

    I REALLY enjoyed watching your gameplay Aerroon, so many are fooling around trying to figure out how to play this ship AND I think you nailed it in this vid 🙂 Thumb’s up!

  5. This thing has crazy good AA.

  6. she shows so much freeboard , its crazy high out of the water

    • Because real ships have to survive and fight in rough weather.

    • mynameiswritinwater

      because Petropavlovsk is a glorified submarine. She might survive a summer in the Baltic, though

    • @mynameiswritinwater About the same freeboard height as Scharnhorst actually, the different is the sheer bow size, Scharnhorst still goddamn poor seaboat despite the Atlantic bow fix, Petro got chubby nose.

    • mynameiswritinwater

      @Nguyen Thanh The Atlantic Bow fixed Scharnhorst (and Gneisenau )’s shipping water problem rather effectively – after all that bow had almost 10m height over the waterline Plus the Scharnhorst class ships were shorter and with wider bows, causing them to rise with the swell, with petro with its greater length and slimmer bow (less buoyancy) would not
      Petro-paper-lovsk is much narrower shape overall, has a very slender bow, and I doubt she even has Scharnhorst 15′ freeboard in its widest area.

      Plus “poor seaboat” rather lol — Scharnhorst was capable enough to go to battle in Beaufort 9 in the Barents sea, so I suspect the german naval engineer must have done something right. Can’t remember a single sovjet or russian ship ever fighting under those conditions^^

    • @mynameiswritinwater If they’re not poor seaboat, then German wouldn’t get rid rangefinder on turret A early on.

  7. ok jingles
    07:55 thats the sinking Yamato , not the Amagi

  8. Aerroon, you review ships without overreacting or resorting to hyperbole. I respect you for that.

  9. Ooh nice historical what-if battle between a Japanese Amagi class battlecruiser and a US Lexington class battlecruiser at 7:12 onwards.

  10. Whilst I’m at work I can’t play WoWS but I can watch the odd YT vid. Strange thing to say you may think and how can you watch stuff at work. Well, I work at sea on an actual ship and am away from home for 4 week trips, these vids are great to break some of the time up. Thanks Aerroon, much appreciated matey.

  11. hence US have 2 Lines of “Tanky Battleship” line and Fast Battleship Line…
    I wonder if we will get Birtish and Japanese Battlecruiser line

    Ofcorse I have to move Amagi to Battlecruiser Line and shift her to tier IX while Tosa will be a New Tier VIII

    tier VIII will be Izumo instead and tier IX is Yamato concept design that use 4 triple guns 430mm… …. then Yamato…

    Let’s named this tier IX Super Battleship as Chuzokabe.. named after a Clan with a same name

    Stats
    Basically a Hybrid between Izumo and Yamato

    Reload 30 secs
    Have the same armor layout as Yamato
    Gun velocity are the same as Izumo
    Speed: 27.9 knots..
    Has lots of secondaries compare to Izumo and Yamato
    She does have Heals

    That’s all I can think of on Japanese Super Battleship Line

    Now for Japanese Battlecruiser Line… All of them will have Engine Boost consumables and maximum of 410mm gun size and 32mm plating everywhere and also slightly shorter fire duration than any Battleships but not as great as Cruiser

    The Line will consist of Tosa Class, Amagi Class and Some random Design
    Tosa will have the same current Amagi Stats however she is slight weaker in terms of armor hence she is basically the upgraded Nagato and down graded Amagi…
    Amagi will be buff due to she is a tier IX now and will have better speed with 34 knots to match up the Iowa Class.. she will also has slightly better turret traverse than her current tier VIII
    Tier X which I dont know what design will be… but I’ll atleast gave her a name, Honda… Yes we know its a Car’s brand but the name is came from old Japanese Clan….
    Her stat wise
    She will have 4 triple turret 410mm guns
    She will also have 35 knots maximum speed (without engine boost or Flag)
    She is basically have the same gun as Izumo or you can say it is a tier X Hizen
    She will also access with Torpedoes….

    Come to think of it… We dont have Japanese Light Cruiser lines…. I wonder if that adding back Kitakami is a premium tier X or a tech tree….. hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  12. One thing I wanted to note, you didn’t show one of the most interesting features of her armor. There’s a thin strip of 120~mm (don’t have exact number in front of me) armor on the INSIDE of her torpedo bulge. You can only see it by removing her citadel and case mate and looking on the inside of her torpedo bulge. Other than that, great review, can’t wait to take mine out.

    Do you think a secondary/concealment build, kind of like you had on Ohio would work? I only wonder because with her concealment she can get close enough for the 9.6km secondary range to work, and you’d get the main battery reload down + torps. Given your typical engagement range in this video I wondered about it.

    • You can get up to 10 km secondaries. I did play her like that, but I don’t really think its’ worth it. The secondaries aren’t usually good enough and you end up stuck with 17.4 km range.

  13. She was a real built but not finished ship. So I dont know why anyone is surprised. She also a Knot slower in game as she probably would have achieved 36 kts.

  14. I like the ship too. Don’t understand some reviews; although I think that has something to do with LWM

  15. This thing’s armor can protect against only light cruisers, according to the Armada video

  16. TheAmazingOutlaw

    I said to the dev’s to make the USS Tennessee, and that the WW2 ship had Radar, torps and 406mm guns. Everybody on the forum said i was an Idiot to suggest a US BB that had radar and torps and even wargaming wouldnt do that. Well well well now look what we have. But seriously WG add the USS Tennessee.

    • I mean, then give radar to every BB because every BB had radar, at least in WW2. A Bismarck with radar and hydro…

    • @xela 63 except Russian BB’s, coz they didn’t have any

    • @TheRobbiUno well, they actually had the Gangut, but the Soyuz only had a prototyped armor on a target ship that only had its thickness because Russian armor was actually that shitty.

  17. Wow, a ship that is actually somewhat based in reality. Who wouldve guessed.

  18. 7:53 that must be the biggest amagi what i ever seen.. like size of a yamato 😀

  19. Constellation is a Jack of All trades with Heavy Cruiser Armor

  20. Just to clear things up, when Aerroon says “yesterday was Canada Day”, he must have recorded it on July 2nd, and not released it until July 3rd.
