In-Game uses and Historical Accuracy
The North Carolina is a decent ship and is very good if you dont mind that the speed is pretty dismal and the toughness is really low. With some modifications it can be and accomplished battlecruiser and a good warship. In its original state it is better just to strip it for the 40cm triple guns and mount those on a larger ship. The North Carolina is very accurate to the actual ship beacause of the 40cm(16in) guns. There are some historical inaccuracies, but aren't most all inaccurate in some way? It is a bit overpriced but aren't all the purchasable ships overpriced? If the Buyout initative ever works out then we will see the dual 5in turret for AA and anti-ship and that will make all historical ships more accurate.
