    Ship Discussion: HMS Hood



    Like Kaga, HMS Hood's preliminary stats have been leaked.

    Survivability: 67,700 hitpoints. TDS: 16%

    Maneuverability: Speed 32 knots, rudder shift 14.43sec, turn radius 910m.

    Concealment: Surface detection 16.2km and air detection 13.86km.

    Main guns: 381mm MkII, 30sec reload, 60s 180° turn time
    HE shell 5300 dmg, 34% Fire chance
    AP shell 11400 dmg, Penetration 512/417/340

    Secondaries: 5 km range. seven twin 102mm loading HE with a damage of 1500 and a reload of 3s

    AA:
    102mm: 66DPS at 5km
    40mm Vickers: 60DPS at 2.5km
    178mmUP: 50DPS at 1.5Km
    12.7mm MG: 8DPS at 1.2Km
    HMS Hood will have a normal repair party, not Warspite's one, and it will also have Defensive Fire with 5 charges, probably to prop up her pitiful AA.

    UPs benificiating from defensive AA and AA skills is interesting. Guess they had to find a way to not make her AA terrible.
    No torps despite WG's promotional picture listing them. I have no idea why they do this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Quite interested by the ricochet/autobounce thing. I'm not much of a theorycrafter, so I wonder how this will affect real case scenarios.

    @Mobius
    I guess it's to prop up Hood's guns a bit, she's in a Tier where the first 16" guns appear on regular lines (Colorado and Nagato). She'll need all the help she can to be competitive. However, her Sigma looks quite bad at 1.8.

    @Keyan_TTK Well just a quick take, IIRC:

    8 rifle Colorado and Nagato have Sigma 2.0? And they pack 16" guns.

    Hood packs only 8 15" guns with 1.8? That kind of sucks.

    What's Gneisenau though?

    Scharnhorst is "Broken German Optics" but she fires fast.

    @M.A.Mitscher Gneisenau is 1.8 as well IIRC.

    @Mobius 1.8 sigma for only 6 guns is cruel LOL

    1.8 sigma is no real issue on its own. Sigma is often overstated ever since it got more visibility when Arizona was introduced.

    I like to use Amagi and Izumo as examples of highly accurate battleships in practice who have 1.8 sigma. Both have fairly tight horizontal dispersion, non-arcing shells, and huge gun count in their "normal" engagement angle. They can deal with a few shells not quite landing at the proper "height", and are particularly good at dealing damage to German battleships regardless. 1.8 actually isn't that bad, its the most common sigma value.

    1.8 sigma on its own isn't a big deal for Gneisenau, its the terribad horizontal dispersion combined with it that causes a huge dispersion ellipse overall that makes the guns unreliable at range. Its rarely an issue at brawling range though, 1.8 sigma is more than decent enough at close range where horizontal dispersion isn't as much of an issue, and thats all she really needs. New Mexico and Fuso both have worse sigma but you don't feel like they are a crapshoot when they close in right?
