  • USN DD, CL, CA Guide

    01. 28. 2007 10:35

Welcome to my guide on the ships of the United States Navy in Navy Field! This
guide is a compilation of the knowledge of many players, new and veteran alike, and
is always growing. If you feel that something needs to be added, simply post in this
thread (or even better, send me a message) and I'll see if it's worth adding. I'm
always looking for more viewpoints about the ships in the game, so don't hesitate to
add something.

While the US is listed as being the most balanced nation in NF, many veteran players
will say otherwise from experience. Nonetheless, the US can be a fun nation to play;
some times you'll be very happy that you chose the US as your nation, though there
will also be times when you'll wonder why you chose it in the first place. It's true
that the US doesn't have any real strengths, but it also doesn't have many glaring
weaknesses, as the other nations do.

Well yes, this game does include some ships that never existed, and fails to include some
ships that did. Most of it is for game balance. If we used only ships that really
existed, the KM navy would have very few ship classes in it. Likewise, using every
existing ship would choke the US, UK, and IJN with extraneous choices on it's ship line.

For that reason, you won't see a Utah or Florida class battleship, as it would come in the
ship tree BEFORE the Nevada or even the New York class, which would either suck or trample
all over the cruiser choices.

But no, you listed multiple ships of the Essex class, for example, and suggested they wre
not represented in game. Hence my response.

and some ships are fictional,for example,the Super Yamato,was never built because

Can I ask why you are posting about CV and BB classes under a DD, CL, CA thread?

Ben, you should look up what a "ship class" means. The only difference between Yorktown,
Hornet, and Enterprise was the NAME of the ship. They were otherwise darn near identical.
Therefore, they're represented in game.

USS Hornet(CV-8) - Yorktown class
USS Enterprise(CV-6) - Yorktown class
USS Saratoga(CV-3) - Lexington class
USS Ranger(CV-4) - correct, not represented in game
USS Wasp(CV-7) - Yorktown class variant
USS Bennington(CV-20) - Essex class
USS Bon Homme Richard(CV-31) - Essex class
USS Bunker Hill(CV-17) - Essex class
USS Franklin(CV-13) - Essex class
USS Hornet(CV-12) - Essex class
USS Intrepid(CV-11) - Essex class
USS Lexington(CV-16) - Essex class
USS Wasp(CV-18) - Essex class
USS Yorktown(CV-10) - Essex class

USS Texas(BB-35) - New York class
USS Arkansas(BB-33) - correct, not represented in game, Wyoming class
USS Oklamhoma(BB-37) - Nevada class
USS Arizona(BB-39) - Pennsylvania class
USS Idaho(BB-42) - New Mexico Class
USS Mississippi(BB-41) - New Mexico Class
USS California(BB-44) - Tennessee class
USS Maryland(BB-46) - Colorado class
USS West Virginia(BB-48) - Colorado class
USS Washington(BB-56) - South Dakota (II) class
and so on....

> I wish they have AMs (Mine Sweeper)in the game

They do. Frigates and Destroyers can perform this role, though there are no separate ship
classifications for them. They can spot mines, and any gun, even an AA gun, can destroy a
mine with one or more shots.

PT boats were not "launched". They were based out of forward island staging areas,
similar to land-based bombers. Neither of which is represented in game because capital
ships do not carry them except under bizarre circumstances.

I wish they have AMs (Mine Sweeper)in the game,and if the CVs and other ships
gets to launch aircrafts,i might as well as want to see ships launching PT (Mini sized
hard-to-hit 35-40 knts speedy torp boat)in the game,only if they have them and can
be able to launch them.

Ben, a battlecruiser is a type of battleship, and is not a cruiser. (there's a real
historical reason for that, but I won't repeat it again.) Hence it's covered in the
battleship guide, not the smaller-ships guide.
