New russian tier 9 cruiser. Like Stalingrad, but not Stalingrad.

It's a fake ship that WG spent a lot of time on instead of all the real ships people were asking for.

actually, its hull was being constructed, it was just never finished, so it was real to a degree

It was a Russian battlecruiser whose design was significantly influenced by the Scharnhorsts (to the point where the Russians were inquiring with the Germans to acquire Scharnhorst turrets/guns). It in no way, shape or form resembled the thing we're getting... this boat is significantly larger and more heavily armed than the ship that was actually laid down IRL.

Well, THAT certainly puts all of this ships stats in the "as solid as concrete" category for me; I mean, if the HULL was built ... LOL!!

How could ANYONE ever accuse this game of Russian Bias?

Kronshtadt is a battlecruiser that was about 25-50% completely before WWII put a damper on those plans. Her original design called for 3 x 2 380mm guns (Bismarck's guns and turrets) before the design was altered to use the 3 x 3 305mm guns that we see here.

 

If this is how WG is going with superheavy cruisers, then so be it. Stalingrad, Kronshtadt, and Alaska are the ones I am aware of, though there are likely more of them out there.

Kronstad is the island just off of Saint Petersburg, or Leningrad...
