    Shigematsu got a reaction from Nucreum in EotBS Ship Names   
    I've been doing some background research into all of the EotBS names, and I think I have found which Kanji are associated with each unit, with some background information. There is one exception, and a theory on what name they were trying to give it. I've grouped them by it's name category, for the most part.


    Uwatsu Frigate 上津 "Top Port" Nakatsu Cruiser 中津 "Inside/Middle Port" Sokotsu Battleship 底津 "Bottom Port"   Fuujin Corvette 風神 "Wind God" Hachiman Dreadnought 八幡神 "God of Eight Banners" Divine Protector of Japan Amaterasu Bomber 天照 "Goddess of the Sun" / "Shining in Heaven" Inari Scout Gyro 稲荷 "God of Harvests" Tsukuyomi War Gyro 月読 "Moon God" Tenkei Sky Fortress 天刑 "Divine Punishment"   Onryou Scout Gyro 怨霊 "Vengeful [Female] Ghost" Kiyohime Assault Carrier 清姫 "lit.

Destined Lady" A title often to define Kitsune who are Loyal to Inari Ryuuou Large Robot 龍王 "Dragon King" Regarded as the divine ruler of the ocean.   Ika Mechanical Squid 鰞 "Squid" Kitsune Escort 狐 "Fox" Tanuki Gunship 狸 "Racoon Dog"   Tetsubo Small Flyer 鉄棒 "Iron Club" Ronin Heavy Walker 浪人 - Lit.

If you look at it long enough, you die.   Kagoshima Mobile Airfield 鹿児島 - Birthplace of  Tōgō Heihachirō (1848 - 1934), a legendary Japanese Admiral who defeated the Russian fleet at the battle of Tsushima. Known as "Nelson of the Orient"

    Some of these names make sense and fit the ship, others... not so much. The one that stands out is the Yurgi, since it's not even Japanese. I'm guessing it might have been Yurei and somone reversed the e somehow, otherwise, no idea to the Yurgi's name origin.

    Actually gimble we have a ton of RB3-4 weapons. Not enough to crack a BB or DN without a bucket load of exploding sixes, but more than enough to tear the Ablative off a cruiser.

    I'm not terribly concerned about the Ottomans being too powerful, I already see how I can exploit some of their weaknesses using the Ika, Tanuki, Uwatsu, Tetsubo and Inari. If they've got low CC, AA and AP AND no shields, incendiary rounds will be painful, especially coming from the Inari. High Angle on the Volleys are good and all, but it doesn't hit Altitude Skimmers, only AA and Boarding can. 

    Ottomans will need to be focus fired down one at a time, rather than spreading the damage around a squadron due to their redoubtable strengths and sustained fire, you cant re-roll what you don't have. The Ottomans also lack a dedicated Spotter unit outside of the humble recon plane.

    Guess that's why they give 3 to a Box. Though aren't there not enough mine tokens for them judging by the boxes. I hope you can buy them Independently in the future. Can you drop these mines like bombs like other aerial minelayers?
    Also a side note. When will the Russians, Australians, Chinese and Italians have their parts available to order? A friend of mine wants to get som Russian parts but last time I checked they only had the escort. Does anyone have an estimated date of when they'll be available?

    Sounds like Ottomans are shaping up to be a finesse fleet, Ottoman players are going to have to plan well and make ample use of mines to stop the boarding-hungry factions from making mincemeat of them. If we're being handed low AP and AA, it's going to be a challenge to fight off Blazing Sun and re-vamped Prussians. Intrigued to see how the generator works and what the Armoured Cruisers are bringing to the table...

    They misspelled it.  It should be Yugiri.  Name of a WW2 Japanese DD of the Fubuki class.
     
    From WP:
     
    Yūgiri (夕霧, "Evening Mist"?) [1] was the fourteenth
    of twenty-four Fubuki-class destroyer destroyers, built for the Imperial
    Japanese Navy following World War I. When introduced into service, these
    ships were the most powerful destroyers in the world.[2] They served as
    first-line destroyers through the 1930s, and remained formidable weapons systems
    well into the Pacific War.
     
    If you type in Japanese Warship naming conventions, you can find a couple of nice sites that talk about this subject.
