Well, it's safe to say that Yashima is breaking the mold for what battleships can be in World of Warships. 510 mm guns? Yeah, those are pretty big. What I'm curious about is, if Wargaming are going to introduce the proposed super-Yamato, then when can we expect to see a new (premium) tier 10 German battleship representative of the H-42, H-43, and H-44 class? For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, the current tier 9 German battleship, the Friedrich de Grosse, is representative of the H-39 class battleship, bearing 8 x 406 mm guns in 4 turrets. The Kriegsmarine continued to develop battleship designs based on what other nations were planning, the result of which were designs H-40 through to H-44 (H-40 is different from the other designs in that it only had 6 x 406 mm guns in 3 turrets). Depending on which sources you consult, the gun calibres for some of the ships are different, but needless to say, as the designs progressed, the gun calibre increased, all the way up to 8 x 508 mm guns in 4 turrets on the H-44 class. So what's my point? Well, if the Japanese can have a super-battleship, then I'd say the Germans deserve their chance to shine too. Mark my words, there's money to be made by adding a premium such as this to the game, and Wargaming will put this ship in the game. They may opt to use the supposed 8 x 480 mm guns configuration instead, but mark my words, this ship will appear in-game someday. Also, I guarantee that there will be a premium H-40 class battleship, possibly as a tier 8 or 9 premium (I hope 8), maybe with torpedoes if Wargaming want to make a Gneisenau on steroids (WG, if you read this, please make this come true ) . Well, that's all for now folks, please let me know if you agree or disagree in the comments below, and please consider taking part in my survey! Fair winds and following seas!
