What type of ship is this ?

So i was messing around with the new camera. While doing so i came across this weird looking thing. It's a ship obviously. It also looks to be American but it doesn't have any turrets in the front. It also seems to have radar.

I'd like to think this is Wargaming hinting at a future premium ship but i doubt it. 

Does anyone know ?

Probably just background port filler.  I wouldn't lose too much sleep over it.

Standard Battleship looks like a Colorado.

I guess that's a possibility. But if so then it's missing a lot of stuff. Also looks a little small for the Colo. Kind of hard to tell.

Was more just curious if it was an actual ship or if Wargame decided to add a completely fake ship.

The hull definitely is a Standard US BB, that stubby clipper hull is pretty distinct.  Its missing weapons, rangefinders and fire-control but the superstructure could line up with pre refit Tennessee or Colorado.  I'd wager its the Rado though.

It looks like an escort carrier. Escort carriers were small CVs used to defend convoys.

On second look it's got too much stuff on its deck.

It's got a big-a$$ crane next to it -- probably still under construction without the turrets installed yet.

Looks to be an US Standard BB, specifically a low detailed render of a Colorado-class BB.

The North Carolina has two smokestacks aft of the conning tower. Like Ducky said, the forward gun turrets are probably being installed.

I'm sure this was brought up a while back when port first came out... It's Colorado being fitted out.

It is indeed a Colorado class under construction. There is also a Fletcher Class DD being built in the Shipyard port.
