Delhi class British CL - 12 Dice?

Postby zulu01 » Fri Aug 08, 2008 11:57 am

This has to be a printing error. No CL has 12 dice of secondary weaponry - that's more than any BB in teh game!

I was playing with Zulu last night when he unleashed the beast that we call Delhi...holy cow! We all agreed (including Zulu) that it must be a typo. I just did a quick search and found this post in response to his question:
It should be 1 AD of secondary weapons.

I cant link the post but if you do a search on the "Delhi", it comes up.

Anyway, I agree 12 Dice seems crazy. I play the IJN and the Yamato only has 9 AD. I would love some feedback from some as to what we shold do.

Thanks!

Hi DM! Thanks for the quick answer...that makes sense. I was wondering if the AA should go up? The description indicates that the Delhi was a Danae cruiser that was converted to an AA cruiser? Currently the AA is the same as the Danae?

Thanks again!!

It makes no sense at only one dice of secondary - it's namesake ship would have an effective AA of 6 while the Delhi AA cruiser would have only 4.

It should probably be secondary 1, AA 5 or 6 to make any sense.

You are probably right - I'm working from memory as my original files are stashed away at the moment.

Was this ever resolved?

I was talking about it, since the Delhi drops the Torps to make room for more AA, that the AA should be quite high (and clearly higher then the Danae)

Secondary 2 (or 1), AA 8 or something, making it similar to the Coventry?

I was marveling if the AA should proceed up? The recount shows that the Delhi was a Danae cruiser that was altered to an AA cruiser

Is there anything further on this?
The 12ad of secondary clearly must be incorrect, but giving it 1 ad of secondary seems equally wrong, considering the description - and the fact it would appear that in making it an AA cruiser they added no AA guns, removed most of the secondary and the torps.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you chaps. Here's the gen.

Delhi should have an AD of 1 for the secondary armament an an AA of 5.
