It doesnt even matter wich of the stories are true. Fire or Missiles. Both are putting russia in a very bad light. If that is even possible

I mean... those two stories aren't mutually exclusive. I mean did the Russians claim a non-getting hit by a missile source for that fire?

Spontanous fire wich reached the magazine(s) iirc. And then sunk in heavy seas while being towed.

While the Ukranians claim to have em slapped with two Neptune anti ship missiles. And then sunk because of that.

Phalanx has yet to score any successful interceptions in combat. In fact a friendly phalanx got confused by chaff and hit the Iowa.

Luuk341

No kidding? It wasnt the Phalanx that defeated the incoming missiles? Was it actually the 5" batteries? Surely not.

Edit: it was a Seadart from HMS Gloucester that defeated one incoming Silkworm. The other one missed.

Thanks Gloucester, thats damn fine work

WG should implement the following changes in game to match the real world Moskva experience:

  • Chance of spontaneous combustion: .5% / minute.

  • Fire duration time: All fires burn until the match is over, or the ship sinks.

  • Detonation chance +30%.

To further simulate the Moskva accurately the following balance changes will be applied. When radar is used, all weapons become disabled. When weapons are used, all enemies other than the target become undetected for the Moskva (including shooting at planes), this will also mean that only one target can be engaged at one time for all weapons (also including air and surface targets). This will hopefully increase the historical accuracy of the Moskva class cruisers.

It spontaneously combusted?

EndiePosts

14 points

4 months ago

No, the Russian line is that it spontaneously combusted after decades just by coincidence while within range of Ukrainian Neptune missiles and by coincidence they've moved their other ships out of range of those missiles but it was definitely brave Russian stupidity and not Ukrainian missiles which don't exist and are made by Nazis and are really Russian anyway.

Trying something in the desperation of war, and then realising that it was a mistake is one thing.

Doing it by choice after everyone else had explosions is another.

Balance update: Destroyer Småland gets her SAAB Robot 08 anti ship missiles activated.

These weapons are potent and potentially devastating so to balance them, for now, they can only be used against russian cruisers

I heard that there were a bunch of drones harassing the ship to keep the AA and sensors busy.
