Been doing a little digging since Pigeon of War did his guest appearence on Shoot The Red Ships pod cast.. and was pointed at hints..

 

So, here goes..  In reference to the ship in the cristmass leter to santa.. Fresh flag.. right.. Pigeon says not the Yamato.. well of course, but he said that a hint..

 

SO looked a Wiki entry for the Richelieu class noted her armor protection was second only to that of the Yamato....Hummm????

 

But that wasn't the only hint.. You see there a box in the vieo noted as the place for hints with a cruiser symbol on it and and wraped with the tricolor ribbon.  There a was also a tricolor wrapped box besides.

 

An

 

There was also a box labelled "PVE,  and of course there was that BIG anchor with a Union Jack bow on it.  ANd then there was the plane our friendly gold fish was flying.. kinda looked like a late war Fairley...  

 

Wild guess based on the hints is possibly several french ships.. Possibly room for an small line of French Destroyers, Cruisers and BB's..  And of course we're all waiting for the British Battleships, Destroyers, and Carriers.  I didn't seeing anything hinting at Italian but I'm sure they are on the todo list, nor anything hinting at anything Russian. or American, or IJN.   We know from the Dev video that 50 plus ships are scheduled for 2017.

 

so lets see. we know of 3 russian DD's for sure.. and a line of French cruser could add 9 plus an into gun boat/patrol ship ships.  there 5-6 possible classes of French BB's that including one that was planned for construction start in 1941.. but the war came early..   add in a lfull line of British DD's and British BB's toss in a little paper ship filler and here looking at 24-26 ships... 

 

.... half the number of ships we have been officially told are in the pipe..  toss in a line of British carrier up to 6 additional ships, and a line of french DD' for 8 more, and there still room for a line of russian battle ships and maybe some IJN Light cruisers, and 2 US BB's classes not in game and one US Cruiser (Brooklyn class), and of course, the Alska class large cruiser and that brings up to 50 plus...  I'm guess'n we'll have to wait for 2018 for the Italians and some of the other minor powers. and unusuall one off ships.

 

Just have to wait and see.

 

ANything you think you might hase seen hints of?

 

Watch the 2017 Dev log video, and the the captain's holiday intro "Ship-Mass" video.   Maybe you'll see something I didn't!

We already know that two French tech tree lines will be released this year, one of which will definitely be cruisers.  Following the lead of Dunkerque, there is a good chance the second will be battleships.

 

We also know that British BB's have been confirmed for release this year, along with a sub-line of Soviet destroyers.

 

As for the ship in the drawing that you referenced, it's already been confirmed as the French Bourgainville-class aviso, which would essentially be the tier 1 ship in the cruiser branch:

In the video it states we will be getting 4 new lines this year and the RU DD sub branch. The 4 lines are going to be 2 French lines, and both the RN BB and CV lines have been confirmed multiple times for this year. So there are your 4 lines. Guessing the first French line is going to be the cruisers then followed by the BBs.

RN BB+CV=14 ships

French CL+BB= 18 ships

VMF DD=3 ships

That's 35 tech tree ships

USS Alabama

IJN Mutsu

KM Graf Zeppelin 

USS Enterprise

IJN CV

So there will be 10 more unknown premiums

One maybe a Italian BB?

Some more Commonwealth ships?

Oh and there was something about 2 more Pan Asia ships.

50 ships would be 5 lines plus 4 premiums. If one is a carrier line then that would add 1 more premium since carriers traditionally star at t3. So 5 lines and potentially 5 new premiums or some splinter lines like the ijn dd's.

It would be more premiums. Assuming it's French CA/BB, and RN CV/BB, that would only be 30 tech tree ships, (10 French CA, 7 BB, 7 RN BB, 6 CV) plus however many extra Russian DDs.

I think you meant to say T4.
