So, what’s the difference between Bismarck and Legendary? The two ships share some similarities, but Musashi is a little more powerful. In fact, if you think about Bismarck and its abilities, you’ll see that it’s worth about four times more. And that’s just the armor. So, what makes Musashi so special? Read on to find out. You’ll never regret a Musashi purchase!
The legendary Musashi armor provides high-quality protection against damage, torpedoes and explosions. The Musashi has excellent armor, including horizontal armor. It is vulnerable to Graf Zeppelin AP bombs, but the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible. This armor can be bought for 176,000 coal in the Armory. It is also available for testing in the game’s tech tree.
Despite its legend, Musashi is not the best choice for down-tiering. His swordsmanship was poor and he made two main sacrifices for down-tiering. It was the armor that won him the reputation of being the best swordsman in Japan. And since Musashi was considered a great duelist, it was not surprising that he was known for brutality. In one duel, he even hid in the bushes to ambush his opponent. He then beat him with a stick. His uncle later intervened, but it wasn’t enough. Musashi’s brutal tactics enhanced his swordsmanship.
Despite his strength, Musashi’s oar armor was made of wood and he used it as a sword. It was made by hewing a wooden oar. He carved it himself, and the sword was shaped in the same manner. His wooden sword was also a piece of armor that he made himself. He used it to defeat a man called “pickle.”
The Bismarck and Yamato are not exactly the best-matched ships in the War of the Worlds. While both ships had superior AA and radar, the Bismarck was outclassed by the Yamato due to its thicker armor belt. The Iowa, on the other hand, had a huge advantage in speed, and it was able to maneuver and shoot better thanks to its fire control systems.
The legendary power of the Bismarck has been inflated over the years, especially after the 1960 film, which only added to this legend. However, research indicates that Bismarck was far from the most powerful battleship in the world, and she would have faced her match had she been able to survive longer. Even the Nazis did not make this claim. This is a fact worth considering, especially for the sake of playability.
The Musashi entered service in August 1942 and lasted for just two years. Considering the war’s importance to the Imperial Japanese Navy, they should have focused their efforts on developing naval aviation and submarines. The construction of these ships seems to be a waste of money, especially considering that the aircraft carriers had far greater vulnerabilities than battleships. Despite the superiority of their gunnery and armor, they still did not prove themselves worthy of the coveted title of German behemoth.
The Bismarck was a German battleship, which was built after World War I. Although the armor of the Bismarck was the strongest, the Musashi’s bow armor was the weakest. This made it susceptible to AP bombs. Fortunately, a new signal, the Juliet Charlie, made it impossible for the Graf Zeppelin to detonate it. The signal was available to test in the game beginning with Update 0.6.14, but you’ll need 750,000 Free Experience to test it.
The Bismarck-class was a large battleship, but it was an old design. Although it was powerful for its time, its armor deck was too low, leaving its communication and data systems exposed to enemy fire. The Bismarck also had no protection at the stern or bow. A fast destroyer could take the Bismarck out without escorting. Despite the lack of a protective deck on the Musashi, the Japanese battleship was not weak against Bismarck’s weapons.
The Bismarck is a high-ranking battleship that had an excellent arsenal, but no torpedo tubes. Its Bismarck-like armor belt was only good enough for short range direct fire, but during World War II, most battleships were sunk by air. A newer design with a higher range and a wider target made for a better Bismarck-like armor belt.
