If wargaming wants to keep its Russian bias, the tech tree Russian ships need buffed ASAP! With the changes to the commander skill tree, and the game meta now being shifted to torp boats, A/J line BB sniping and FDRs, short range specialized ships that are can tank a lot of damage a straight up bad. The only viable ship from the Russian navy is well.... Slava, and maybe Slava, oh and Slava. Even Smolensk doesn't really make sense when everything is already outside of 19 kilometers. So WG, if you care so much about your Russian ships, then you probably should buff them, or else there will be no reason to play them... even on the RU servers.
Yesterday, the Sevmash shipyards floated out a behemoth of a submarine. This being the Belgorod, topping out at 604 feet long (184 meters) and weighing 30,000 tons submerged, it's the longest submarine in the world. ... I say brand new, but the hull's been sitting incomplete since 1992, so some of her is older than some of her enlisted crew, but still. She's a derivative of the Oscar-II-class of attack submarines, but she does not carry any missiles. Instead, she's designed for special operations, acting as a mothership for covert underwater missions. She does, however, carry six Poseidon "intercontinental" nuclear torpedoes (wat). So she's a whole bucket of fun, from the looks of it. Also, no, she's not the largest submarine, as the Typhoons beat her in tonnage.
