Of course the Tier V Kirov has got more armour than this does. Introduce it without missiles...

What is the reload on it?

 

The guns, or the missiles?

More likely to be a Project 23 as a T9 FXP Premium, aka Sovetsky Soyuz, sister ship. It'd be fitting as an Missouri rival; right down to having Russian Radar (more range, less duration).

 

I vote for Sovetskaya Rossiya as the name.

Interesting. 

 

I have the Trump-Wagon and Shoe already with 500,000 FreeXP left, so I'll be ready with whatever they release.

 

Though a Udaloi clone with 10k torps, better stealth and the stock Udaloi turrets would be interesting too.

If the Russians are to have their own free XP ship I'd rather it be one that was built and saw combat service like Missouri, Nelson and soon Musashi (I think). The Imperatritsa Mariya was the last Russian BB class ever commissioned, so T4 or 5 will be the highest they can get. It's my favourite ship so I'm a bit biased.

Imperatritsa Mariya is more likely going to appear as a line ship or regular Premium, whereas the Sovetsky Soyuz-class was in the early stages of construction before they were canceled. And as there are 4 of them named, WG can easily use one of them as a Russian T9 FXP Premium in a near-identical manner to Iowa/Missouri.

 

Assuming WG still holds to their intention of getting the VMF BB line out in 2018, we will see both the Imperatritsa Mariya-class and Sovetsky Soyuz-class show up in short order. She seems like an ideal T5 line ship, with Ekaterina Velikaya likely being a T5 Premium on the grounds of being a slightly larger/heavier sister ship (and could also be considered something of a potentially "more-balanced" Nikolai at T5, considering similar setup).

But canceled nonetheless. Her reputation would pale in comparison to the other trio, even Nelson's. :Smile_sad:

Either will work because I think WW1 ships are under-represented and could use more attention. Looking at Konig and Iron Duke, it's obvious the Imperatritsa Mariya will also undergo some fabrication by WG for the sake of balance. Which is why I prefer her as a premium ship for the historical version. I've had the Ekaterina Velikaya as my cover photo for a while now.

Wish WG would learn to appreciate the Russian ships that really existed and stop trying to pretend as if the Soviets was a "major naval power" as they boasted in their recent Developer Diaries video on Pan-Asia destroyers.
