I wanted take a few minutes and talk about the USS Arizona as well as some show off some game play of my latest premium ship.
I’m not playing
Finally back from JROTC camp. Can’t wait to hop in on the next stream
Nice vid…always had a thing for her sister, the Pennsylvania. Damn beautiful ships.
Good shooting – dispersion on that thing seems pretty tight for a BB
Bo, your grandparents sound like some pretty awesome people. Have huge respect for those that have risen up to serve.
Fast & Furious: Pacific Drift
USS Arizona’s No. 4 turret was actually reconditioned (and its guns reinstalled inside it) and put on USS Nevada as its turret No. 4 before Nevada (herself a Pearl Harbor survivor…and the only capital ship to get underway that morning) was shifted to the pacific theater following Normandy. USS Arizona’s reconditioned No. 4 turret, as USS Nevada’s No. 4 turret, was actually used to fire on Okinawa before and during the invasion of the island…and would’ve been used to engage IJN Yamato in the suicidal night action of the slow BB line if that Japanese ship had survived until sundown and still been continuing towards Okinawa.
As far as I’m aware Arizona’s No. 4 turret was still on Nevada when it was expended during operation Crossroads, the first Bikini Atoll atomic bomb test.
Bo do you think you could give my channel a shoutout if I give you a shoutout on my meme page
You did so much damage to that Minekaze, 11 of the other 15 Minekaze class sister ships also sank!
Quick note of pride: my shadow box has a flag flown over the Arizona. Needless to say, if the house burns, the flag gets saved before I do. Thanks for another great vid!
the head of the german intelligence at the time was a brittish double agent, america was warned about pearl harbour but ignored the warning, but personally I think letting it happen was the only way of getting the american people into “europes war” as well as the Japanese.
Love the World of Warships Bo Regardless of if you win or loose its great seeing your tactical mind at work..
make sure to switch out your ammo types. For most long range shots, unless you can get a good, clean hit on the side, use HE. AP Doesn’t like hitting above the deck, and since you’re accurate more often than not you can start lots of fires. For me, AP works better at mid to knife-fight ranges because the trajectories are flatter.
try the Halifax bomber in simulator battles lol its fun when you have it upgraded
love the videos
Bo look up a video on WW2 West Bank Disaster. They conform a mini sub in Pearl Harbor.
I’ve always loved the Arizona. Also, love your vids bo keep up the good work. ;)
Bo, In war thunder there is a special tip if you lose tail control, like the video with the halifax.
Flaps generate lift so you can lift you aircraft, but its gonna be different. Also use engine control
Bo, you have enlighten my day with more WW2 history. I love reading and researching anything that happened in WW2 from naval to infantry, tanks to aircraft, Allies to Axis, Leader to Leader. WW2 is my favorite time of history to read about. Please do more vid’s like this. Also can you take out the Iowa when you get it and give us a little history about The Mighty Mo
Bohica, I love this type of video. You should make more of these on different subjects. While I don’t mind you playing the regular game, I happen to like it more when you talk about the history of certain planed and vehicles when you record. I know that I am only one viewer, and that you have thousands that want something else, but please, make more videos like this.
Moonlight serenade is one of the best songs of the big band era, right next to “In the Mood,” also by Glenn Miller, “Sing, Sing, Sing” by Benny Goodman, and “Manhattan Serenade” by Tommy Dorsey.
State history… Sounds like you grew up in Texas…
Bo, do u ever stream WOWS?
This would make a great podcast
A good book on the attack on Pearl Harbor is “At dawn we slept” by Gordon W. Prange. Along with his follow up book about the battle of Midway. I have both of those on my shelves along with ” The tank killers” by Harry Yeide. A history on the U.S WW 2 Tank destroyer force. Very good books, that are good informative reading. Long time World of Tanks player here. I’ll start playing WOWS, eventually.
Thanks Bo for explaining why the turrets are red, I never knew.
To all those who believe the US high command knew about the attack, explain the casualty count, and just being completely unprepared….
trigger patience helps in all games.
My great grandad was on the Arizona
Hey Bo, how does a German ATGM bounce off a track (Russian track) an come back and kill me?
Yes the Arizona my favorite ship
More battle of Stalingrad
Cool Vid Bo…always sad too think of those poor souls forever entombed inside her….also with regards to the LA Times article here a youtube link to the Japanese midget sub tv program they are talking about
Bo, A Simple Request. Can you sail out the USS Texas and give the History behind it? I’ve got a lot of fans of yours from Texas that work at the hospital with me and they elected me as the spokes person to ask you. Thanks for the Videos Keep up the great work =)
U should play the uss Oklahoma
I once had a game in a Myoko where a ap shell caused flooding
We don’t take state history…sounds like you’re in the south..
Seems like something is bothering him in this video
Great little tid bit! Next time, you ought to do a podcast with the gang on the story of the USS Lexington.
Omg Glen Miller <3 yes yes and yes lol. :)
My us history class just essentially said there was a war and just focused on the government programs that were made
The Japanese were using armor piercing naval shells modified to be used as aerial bombs. That’s why the bomb penetrated so deep into Arizona before exploding. The resulting fireball and blast pressure from the exploding powder mag, followed almost instantly by exploding shells, would have likely killed everybody, or almost everybody, still below deck. The explosion was so powerful it crumpled the bow, lifted it out of the water and created waves estimated to be 10-12 feet high to hit the shore on, I believe, Ford Island.
I have the Wyoming still :/
You gotta love the Torpedo protection and esp the accuaracy of the Arizona.
No I was listening to that song with ny grandma wtf?
ok what does TBLF stand for Bo
Nice to see educated people who actually give a damn about our greatest generations struggle in WW2 I am also an absolute history nerd
i absolutely love every video that you do that has a history lesson in it.
Bo, what are your thoughts on the upcoming German battleships? Are you looking forward to playing that tech tree?
Being that I was raised in Arizona as a child, I remember being quite heart broken to learn the Arizona was lost at Pearl Harbor.
I still don’t get how the RN hasn’t been added but great vid bo
hey bo im from Canada when ww2 started and Canada joined almost instantly and i was researching Canadas involvement and Canada navy actually patrolled some of the Atlantic coast to protect the US from German subs. my question is kinda broad but in your opiun did Canada make a big contribution to the war effort
Do more WoWS videos, Bo, if with history lessons I’ll be ever more happier to watch them :)
Never heard of the ship, sounds cool. Didn’t know it was such an iconic ship in America
I am from roamnia and heard a lot of Arizona bad things happend at Pearl i feel sorry but the war was won people died not people heroes and the heroes on Arizona didnt deserve that tipe of death!
Thanks for playing it i can see the gameplay and im gonna use the ship when i have a New pc my old one broke
Thx Bo. Great video. Remember our fallen in Pearl Harbour!
BO TIME GAMING that is my favorite ship
When you have a premium ship, use the 22,500 credit consumables, you will never lose money, just gain a little elss, but they have lower cooldowns that can save you
Will there ever be a full podcast for this ship?
Anyone playing Pokemon go?
Ive seen both anchors in Hawaii and Arizona
Oh Yeah BOat time gaming! been waiting on one, great job man .keep up the great work
Uss Texas is better DO NOT get this
