There is "another great Japanese battleship" coming soon aside from Kii as announced by Gamescom. I hope it ain't stock Amagi. I want Tosa dangit!

All her data files were yanked; she doesn't exist any more. Just like Kitakami. Granted, she can always make her return since WG is hell-bent on screwing over IJN BB Premiums while every other nation gets a good, proper sister ship or tier rival.

Ev1n said she will come eventually- whatever that means. But I am happy she is still on the radar.

 

what is the second IJN BB you are referring to? Didn't hear any rumors?

Well, there is Kii on the way, and "another great Japanese battleship". What that ship is, I don't know.

IJN BB Candidates list (only classes that are not currently ingame and excluded Kii-class)

 

Ise-class BB : refitted as BBV and most likely they will be part of hybrid tree/prems WG has mentioned

Kaga-Class BB : pre-refit of CV Kaga, basically slightly slow, more armored Amagi

13-go BC : Planing started right before WNT, nothing had officially decided until WNT kicks in and killed the project.  Some journals issued during WW2 claims the ship supposed to had 46,000-48,000 tonnage, and 2x4 460mm  guns, and 30kt.

BC planned for replacing Kongo-class : 35000t, 3*3 or 2*4 or 2*2+2*3 400mm (410mm), 26-30kt.  Plan was discarded because of LNT.

B65:  Well...this is basically IJN's Alaska class.

Bazillion of A-140 plans : many discarded plans for Yamato....or Izumo's possible sisters.

Modified Yamato: all secondaries are replaced with 100mm/65.  Armor scheme got modified but basically, more torpedo protection at the cost of slightly thinner citadel armor.  460mm/50 instead of 460mm/45.

Super Yamato: Yamato with 2*3 510mm/45, and all HA mounts got replaced with Type 5 dual 127mm/50 DPs.

 

Nassau: IJN spoils-of-war for WW1 from Germany. Scrapped before IJN actually admit it.

Oldenburg: Helgorand class BB, IJN spoils-of-war for WW1 from Germany.  same as Nassau.

 

Maybe WG gonna make up a tier 8 ship from one of A-140 plans (because Kaga-class BB would be too similar to Amagi and Kii) or they finally found a solution to introduce BBV into game.

Ok I knew about Kii (and looking forward) - but the second one is still a secret?

 

My money would be on Musashi then.

Not likely. They said premium. Musashi can't be a premium. And yes, it is still a secret.

Why not? Is she going to be the IJN xp ship  (I assume in her original scheme since Yamato is in her late-war AA refit)?

No. She is still a T10, and that would be a million xp or so.

A fair point, however I would save a million free xp for Musashi. Maybe they give her a  better heal than Yamato (not old Yamato or RN BB levels but still better) in refrence to the beating she took before sinking?

I bet it's the Wii, as part of an as yet unannounced Nintendo collab. Though for serious, I hope we get the B-65 design.
