More like what is wrong when a giant Yamato is not in space. NEVER FORGET!

 

edit:

 

I kind of have to hop on the T9 Kii bandwagon. I wasn't too sure at the first sneak peak but this is just too epic for run of the mill tier 8. :Smile_playing:

That's definitely not Space Battleship Yamato, if that's the space anime you mean.

That's likely an example of the artist's work, as he's well known for mechanical fantasy design. Note the Kii camo is very similar to what's pictured here. It's likely just showing what work of art he did that the camo is inspired from.

You are right. Just used google translate to read the RU webpage:

"The original permanent camouflage of the battleship is the creation of the artist and designer Makoto Kobayashi, one of the founders of the genre of Mega and henceforth a new partner of the World of Warships. Back in the 1980s, his unique technique and unusual vision of futuristic cars made a real revolution in the world of animation and design. Wide popularity to the artist brought work on a series of anime Mobile Suit Gundam, recognized in Japan as one of the greatest television shows in history. To this day, Makoto Kobayashi is involved in creating animation and is now working on the anime "Space Battleship" Yamato "2202". Below are examples of its graphics."

Ah, so he did work on Space Batttleship Yamato though. That's interesting. I wasn't sure how far and wide his influence reached. 

Well, it looks pretty cool I think. Hope Kii goes on sale soon. I've been itching for a premium T8 IJN BB for a long time.

Ahh the Kii!  Well, side moments aside... That's some amazing eye candy for the cammo on the Kii..  It art all right!  And Kii here self.. that's a good looking ship..

She looks very predatory.

 

  Theory crafting:  Be sure to run IFHE.. those 8 twin mounts of 100mm, 4 per side will benefit strongly from it.  You'll have a strong chance of detonating DDs that get to close with em. the 5 160mm firing AP per side are a bonus The majority of your AA is 40mm Bofers twin mounts.   Assuming the same AAA range as the Harekaze and the Akizuki long range AAA bubble could be well out past 7.6 Km with your 100mm secondaries in AAA role, and 40 AA mm bubble likely out to 7 Km its self  (assuming AA upgrades fitted, and Commander with AFT at a minimum..)   Armor should be an improvement on the Amagi.  Wont know untill I see one.   Unsure why it's not a tier XI instead of Tier VIII as considering this ship is supposed to be a much improved Amagi ... It's either been nurfed to fit tier 8 or its gonna be OP!    Prolly OP.. IJN is due for a OP ship.   Don't forget, she has torps.  Getting close to this ship is gonna be very dangerous.  Getting close IN this ship is gonna be doable. As for the main gun.. it's 5 twin turrets of 16" guns.  The should perform slightly better then Amagi's 16" guns, but if they're exactly the same, it'll do.    Looking forward to Little White Mouses take on this ships..sI expect she'll rate it a Good Boat boarding on OP.
