I don't know if this has ever been a discussion on, but I was wondering this as i was running around with my Nelson...

 

Free XP ships. I think they're a blast; fun ships to have, nice premiums and of course an interesting way to grind for them. So far we have 2, one British and one American, both of them I already have and loving em.

 

What about the other nationalities though? I'm sincerely hoping WG makes next free XP ships from different nations instead of piling up more on British or US. And yes a non BB free XP ship would be cool too.

 

What do people here think other nation's free XP ship should be? Russian, French, Japanese, German and Italians.. (maybe pan asian free xp too?) Should free xp ships be only historical or can include some well known designs by their respective navies (not WG designed paper ship like say... hindenburg). Just curious to what people think.

West Virginia tier 6 in her 1935 form. Basically an American Mutsu.

 

Saratoga tier 7 with her 1940 fitout armed with 8" guns. Basically an American Kaga in terms of layout ( but only after the CV rework ).

 

A tier 7 USS Porter would be nice as well.

I want another American one, HMS Victorious. the brits lent us a carrier when we were down to one so you can put American planes on it. She would fit in well as a tier 7 (50 plane hangar) and historically would be much tougher then others at that tier.

1) Austro-Hungarian dreadnought Viribus Unitis mounted twelve 12" guns in four turrets and twelve casemate 150mm secondaries, modest AA and four 530mm torpedo tubes. Tier 3 or 4 premium.

2) German battlecruiser Goeben. A trim ship with a low silhouette and carried 34 total guns as built, including a main armament of five twin-gun turrets holding 10x11.1-inch (280mm) main guns, maximum speed of 28.4 knots.

3) USS Delaware, a USN dreadnought, armed with a main battery of ten 12-inch (305 mm) guns all on the centerline, making her the most powerful battleship in the world at the time of her construction (1910).  The USN dreadnought to set against the Tier III British Bellerophon and German König Albert.

Others here:

USS Robin was her designation in American service when they loaned her to us. I think she belongs as the tier 7 premium British carrier though, not American. And even then, only after the CV rework.

Before or after her refit? We're talking 4x2 5"/38 single purpose or 6x2 5"/38 dual purpose.

Pre-refit. A more surface action focused ship.

Mushashi for Japan at T9.  Since 18'1 guns lol pen t10s the whole but but t7's [edited] is pointless only differance will be HP of ships it pens and shell dmg/reload etc can all be modified to fit T9 lvls of gameplay.

T9 Fletcher USS Johnston, the living embodiment of "The fighting Fletchers".

I've already suggested a campaign for the ships of Taffy 3 and Pigeon or niko have sent it to WG HQ for further debate!:cap_like:

Wouldn't mind a Washington at some point. An NC with ramming damage received reduced by 50% perk!

Debatable, but I'm sure some people would like her under British line.

 

Free xp ship for lesser known navies like austro hungarian one sounds interesting. (it's free xp, no need specific nation grind, just get the free xp and choose say a "pan european" ship u like)


Personally, Jean Bart, or maybe Strasbourg (either of this all forward gun specials) can be my choice for a French free xp. And while Musashi seems a big fan favorite, I'd be personally more interested in IJN cruisers. Maybe the still unconfirmed Tone class.

(what if they made kitakami a free xp though? :Smile_hiding:)

Or, alternatively, the first tier 8 BB with radar, since she famously was the first ship to conduct a gun battle nearly entirely by radar control.

I'd really like to the see the Chokai with upgraded Zao guns as a Tier 9 freemium.  It would also have the added bonus of having all her torps be forward firing, giving her a more unique aggressive play style.  

Other than that, I'd just like to see more high tier premium cruisers.  I like the Missouri and all, but I'm really not much of a BB kind of guy...and it would certainly be nice to have a cruiser that could rival her as a credit earner.
