This update enabled a 1k doubloon Perma-Camo on Bayern.  Here's how it looks.

I didn't buy it but was able to preview it in port.  I already had the Santa's Convoy Campaign which rewarded a perma-camo for her.  The Convoy camo is better than the doubloons one.

Both give the typical -3% detection bonus, -4% dispersion penalty to attackers.  Both also grant a bonus to XP earned but the Doubloons one is +30%, the Santa's Convoy is +50%.  I do like how the Doubloons one looks though, similar to the one for Bismarck and Prinz Eugen.

Don't suppose you know what the Emerald's new camo looks like?

Working as intended and Emerald needs all the help she can get in the survivability department.

Also, because I'm a fan of puns and wordplay, this song pops into my head whenever I think of the Bayern

Bayern's camo has been out for a few patches, actually. Also, if you have no qualms, I'm going to liberate your image of the St. Patrick's day camo.

Yours, meanwhile, looks freaking fabulous.

​This is HMS Emerald after some one told her she is a lean, mean, green, fighting machine and she actually bought that joke, then charges into the fray.

The Emerald's green and gold camouflage is only for sale during the Saint Patrick's Day event, right? Or is it a permanent addition?

I'm guessing it's going to be a temporary thing like the Gnevny, Minekaze and Cleveland's special holiday camos.

It costs 1k doubloons, that's the Permanent Camo:

Permanent camo for Emerald (1,000 Doubloons) 
  • +4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy attacking your ship
  • -3% to detectability range by sea
  • +30% to XP earned in the battle

Does anyone know what those camo stripes on the Bismarck were for anyway?  They don't seem accomplish anything that I can see...

Iirc, it was to confuse enemy spotters about the size of the ship at range, creating the potential for it to be mistaken for a cruiser.

Hmm, Wikipedia lists it as "dazzle camouflage" but the camo is so minimalist, I can't tell how she would confused an enemy sighting her.  Would the black and white stripes even be visible at a distance?
