Hearts of Iron Empire!

After my last thread died and I can't be bothered to necro it, I've decided to start it over again.
This thread will be constantly updated with new ships and a better, more organised and aesthetically pleasing fleet.

Lore: The imperial navy has had a reputation of never actually being used for combat since the age of sail. The only combat ships in the first fleet were cargo ship refitted with 8" cannons. The fleet was founded 400 years ago and has a long history. After the first war, its wasn't much of a great war, the empire put millions into funding the new fleet and as such ships are being designed and produced. These ships will range from Coastal and river patrol boats to Huge Battleships and great Aircraft carriers. The funding will also cover and new branch from the navy, this will be naval aviation which will include a wide range of planes and a few airships/blimps. Because most of the technology the empire has is new, the majority of ships will feature differences and similarities and experimental ships, weapons and other tech on these ships will either stay or go in future classes depending on. This navy was designed to defend the empires' borders and resources however due to the outbreak of another war, the fleet is used for strikes, scouts, patrols and defence missions. Any other information on the fleet is classified and should be discussed in private.

Ships:
BB-01 Yamamoto
BB-02 Yato
BB-03 Tomomuri
BB-04 Curi
BB-05 Kuri
BB-06 Ruri

Ship Stats
LxWxH(m)
144x29x69
Top speed: 19m/s or 36.93 knots
2-3m Main armour(Metal)
1m citadel(Metal)

Guns:
3x2- 381mm/ 15"- 6m- AP,HE,Frag,PenDepth shell
1x6- 102mm/ 4"- 4m- AP shell
8x2- 30mm/ 1.1"- 2m- AP shell

There isn't much information about the surviving ships of the first Imperial Navy, only that only 2 Battleships and a Destroyer class survived.
However from what information there is, we know that the battleships were designed for heavy bombardment and anti-ship warfare. This is shown by it's 6 15" main cannons and 6 4" secondaries. The ships armour was also designed with the fact that effective shells at the time wouldn't pen through 2m of armour. However, during modern times they are considered as obsolete and have the role of coastal patrol.
Yamamoto and her sister Yato Are completely identical as variation within classes was not required. Their 8 AA weapons prove that aerial attacks were not a common thing in the previous war. Due to her height, Yamamoto tended to roll so anti-roll systems were implemented.

Hmmm... Did you use some mods, by any chance? I had a quick look, and turrets won't target anything as there is no LWC. Also, the ship will cruise somewhere around 8~9m/s,while some logics inside trigger at 11m/s.

Gameplay-wise, some more segregation of the hull spaces would help reduce the income of damage. You need also a way to counter the roll when turning: this can be done with ACB+air pumps in the double hull (no need to add down-facing propellers, this way). Main asset of the ship is artillery, main or secondary; those 381mm are punchy!

Otherwise, well, the look is nice, and the shape of the hull is great; I love especially the underwater part bellow the bow; those secondary 102mm and 30mm AA guns look nice also. The deck could use a few details more, like lifeboats; it would get very well with the great pre-dreadnought look. That's a very nice job you did, and watching it fight against another WWI-themed unit feels like witnessing the Jutland! Smile

I think I may have forgotten the LWCs and I might add some lifeboats when I check later as for the ship, the idea was to be put together quickly as a counter to other hostile forces. ()I'm still working on the lore) But again, I might do some stuff later.
And no of my ships will use mods as I can't get them to work for some reason, but thanks for the feed back.

Edit:
I've looked at the ships' roll and it never rolls while turning but my when stationary. She has bot ACB air pumps and ACB Props to counter the roll.
The ACBs in the briidge are for the helicopter blade spin block things(completely forgot their name) the one on the right will turn them on above the speed of 10m/s and the one on the left will turn them off when the speed is below 11m/s. the is achieved by going in revers and stopping the props when the speed dramatically drops.
As for the main guns not targeting I'll again check if they have an LWC and will add some lifeboats later today and will re upload the bp in it respectful place.
And a new ship will be released along with it.

Edit2:
Re uploaded BB-01 Yamamoto bp after adding LWCs to all 3 main guns, No life boats yet.

AA(to be added)
BB-03 Tomomuri was planned during the first war but was completed after it so she wasn't included in the first fleet records.
Tomomuri was designed as a fast battleship and as so, her armour is weak.
She is the first ship to battleship to feature 8 14" main cannons and 14 6" secondaries.
Due to her height being over double he width, she has been fitted with anti-roll systems.
Her role in the empire was to patrol and scout but as war approaches, she and her sisters will have the role of quick response & strikes.

I like the Yamamoto class.
And is the Tomomuri just a re-gunned version of your older ship?

The tomomuri is a ship i was going to post in the old thread but forgot. The old version had crams instead of APS, Some ships here will have been uploaded before and will feature a hull change.
