From the looks of it, Musashi will be in her original 1942 configuration.

No. She’s being added as a premium. We don’t know which way though. Possibly free xp ship.

Oh don't even bother, Lert. Last time the Musashi popped up I argued for hours on end that the OM at tier 9 made no difference with no success

Likely another Missouri-Nelson case. Unless WG wants people to still consider buying Missouri by having Musashi be crap (unlikely) and either have it for much more FXP or a hard campaign. We're already getting Stalingrad for CB and there's no reason to have a 7-rankout ship as there's not many people that even have a Black.

 

Logically, free XP just gotta make Missouri a good choice too so don't expect awesome performance. Maybe Musashi will have some sort of stupid gimmick.. they are testing a bunch in the halloween event..

It's not OM that has me concerned.

Basically, I'm not sure you can just take a very well performing T10, nerf the reload a few seconds and neuter it's AA and make it a fair T9. That goes beyond just OM.

It does appear to have worse sigma, but i also am skeptical of this overall.

Touche, but Musashi is going to do a lot more 33% pen damage w/ overmatch, guess we'll see how DPM change will balances it out against same tier BB.

For comparison's sake:

No camo, no captain skills, no upgrades installed - All yanked off of my Yamato.

Tier IX Musashi / Tier X Yamato

Plating

Musashi 32mm, belt 200mm-410mm

Yamato 32mm, belt 340mm-410mm

HE damage 7300 (Identical)

HE velocity 805m/s (Identical)

AP damage 14800 (Identical)

AP velocity 780m/s (Identical)

Reload Time 35 seconds / 30 seconds

180 degree turn time 72 seconds (Identical)

Max Dispersion 275m / 276m (Functionally the same as the value reflects the dispersion Yamato has firing at her slightly longer max range than Musashi)

Max Speed 27kts (Identical)

Turning Circle Radius 900m (Identical)

Rudder Shift Time 18.7 seconds / 22.1 seconds

The dispersion between the two is functionally the same though. It just scales with range, and since Yamato has slightly more range, her dispersion is slightly larger.

Sigma 1.8 / I cannot recall Yamato's exactly, IIRC it's around 2.0 and a selling point of the ship

Max Speed 27kts (Identical)

Turning Circle Radius 900m (Identical)

Rudder Shift Time 18.7 seconds / 22.1 seconds

Surface Detectability 17.5km / 18km

Yamato already had meh AA but great secondaries, Musashi has a pee-shooter and it's going to have atrocious AA, WG setting up this ship for failure I can already tell.
