tm63au posted a topic in Russian BattleshipsOk so before the inevitable salt and down votes fly in thick and fast I just finished my loot box event which gave me a VMF Pyotr Velikiy tier 5 Battleship, now the past I have just casually glanced through tech tree line of VMF BBs I watched the DEV blog on them but to tell you the truth didn't really pay that much attention as I felt I would not grind the line. Anyway after getting this ship and having a closer look at it the first thing you notice is the gun configuration both main and secondary it shows a striking similarity to IJN Kongo so being the detective I like to be I went looking for this ship on line as these days the Internet will just about give you anything, you could Google the launch codes of the super powers nuclear arsenal ( joking ) however try looking up this ship and what you get is something totally different. This is what I got from my Google search So I re watched the DEV blog on Russian BB's and found out its based on some project number 707 so I Google that still no luck, man this must have been some top secret project because you can get all the dirt you want on celebrities these days so easy but a 1911 BB design on that not a chance. But I digress I'm getting off subject to some degree anyway I looked at this ship and thought " this is a cheap knockoff of IJN Kongo " I'm not having a dig at WG but at the Russian naval architects, what these guys couldn't produce something original, something of Russian design. Though I will say now even more about the one line statement that was on the news page but removed about when the DEV blog came out that and I quote " If These Ships Had Been Built They Would Have Been The Envy of The World " or something like that. No would have happened had COPYRIGHT LAWS been enforced back then the IJN would have sued the A$$es off them had they found out what this design was like and that they copied there British designed ship, there would have been no war with Russia as they would have been bankrupt from copyright infringement. As for the ship in game had fun so far playing it in Coop, guns seem good not certain whether I'll play random in her time will tell. Well that's it I await the salt
