Just think, now you get Alaska!

Don't give a flying $%^& about Alaska.  Not interested in US Warships and can't see a need for it.  Not a fan.

Actually, considering the proposed stats of the Kronshtadt (45,000 tons at full load, the absurd railguns, etc), Alaska would probably be a tier 8 by these metrics. She’s about 10,000 tons lighter, and lacks the rail-guns. She would probably park up at around 70,000 HP.

Did you see their proposal for their new Russian Tier IV DD? Here's the stats (work in progress):

Displacement: 50,000 tons

HP: 108,000

Speed: 55 kts

6x3 500mm main guns

14x2 203mm secondaries

Torpedoes: 4x5 51km range torps, speed 99 kts, damage (doesn't actually do damage just causes detonations on each hit)

AA rating: 300

Smoke x3

Speed Boost x3

Defensive Fire (always active)

Radar (always active - 22 km radius)

can someone explain to me what the big deal is. looking at the stats it's armor is crap and it is big and that is not a good combo all battleship you will meet can lol pen your bow your health may be great but you will lose to fast. it can be seen from orbit, has bad movability meaning that torpedoes are going to be a problem sure it has 12in guns so what there is so much more bad thing about this ship then good

 It takes a cruiser slot. Imagine fighting this in a Baltimore or Ibuki on a 1-1 basis.

Compared to this monster, Alaska is a tier 8. This thing literally weighs as much as most tier 8 battleships.

You had better hope they’re tier 8, because this thing literally has 10,000 tons on both of them.

Stalingrad was designed and started as a battlecruiser, not an armored cruiser.

First off.  Gib nao!!!!

Secondly, I have my doubts about how viable she will be.  On one hand she might be OP because she's a BB with 80k HP that takes slot of a cruiser, but on the other hand she also looks like garbage as she is basically just a Tier 7 BB stuck at Tier 9.  That dispersion, sigma and bow armor is all garbage.  *For reference sake her dispersion is about on par with the Scharnhorst.

I don’t know if that’s going to offset the likely 15,000 HP disparity between them tbh.

If anyone is curious the thing is basically the size of a tirpitz will less displacement.  The two are quite comparable in real like specs but holy crapthose stats are waaaaaaaay op.

with 12 inch guns, i think its safe to say its actually more a BATTLECRUISER than a cruiser, Soviet Free XP ship maybe?

Why? Alaska would have 74,700 HP. Its only about 7.5k health. Thats not that bad a difference even at tier 9. (I dont think tier has a direct effect on HP).

T9, smells like free XP ship. Or ranked reward.

Considering Moskva is sitting on a displacement very close to Alaska and B-65 and has 65,400 HP, I doubt Alaska/B-65 will be seeing anywhere close to 74,700.
