I saw @Ace_04's thread, and this thought popped into my head.

What's the weirdest ship? I suppose this could be thought of as in design or gameplay, but I'm wondering what you people think.

There are a few bizarre ones:

Mikassa, the tier 2 Bismarck comes to mind.

Katori with it's chubby design, dreadnought speed, and non existent armor. Plus laser rifles.

The October Revolution is one of the strangest looking ships in the game.

The Graf Spee is a strange ship to play.

There's the Perth with it's creeper smoke.

Okhotnick is a very unique ship.

There are certainly more but these are the ones that come to mind.

Yes, this thing was built in steel and served. Very, very briefly.

For unique gameplay there are a few that stand out...

Graf Spee the cruiser that wants to be a BB.... in the same mode the Scharnhorst the BB that wants to be a cruiser

The Perth smoke

The ohotnik is just..... well.... 

Nelson has a pretty unique play-style  (people think it should play like the izumo, but it doesn't really)

Emden's shell arc

I would suggest Ishizuchi also, which I think plays pretty much as I would expect a battle cruiser to play

The Saipan and its "I wanna be a tier 9!" obsession.  Poor little Saipan.

Gneisenau,  for being a battlecruiser in a line full of battleships.  And having torpedos in the tech tree.

Moskva maybe?  For being a baby BB.

The Roon for not getting the memo about secondaries being useless on cruisers.

The US Civil war produced quite a few fascinating Monitor designs.

 

As far as in game goes...

Of all the ships in WoWS, the one that gave me the biggest WTH moment was the

Oktober Revolution.

I can't seem to aim for SH*T on that ship unless I see the whites of their EYEBALLS!  LOL!

man they should add this this to WoWs...just for giggles.  Give it 8kts more speed -- say the speed boost is cause' of the huge weight reduction from removing all those monstrously heavy gun turrets.

It's technically a platform vs. a ship, but the FLIP:
