Possibly. I have premium camo for Charles Martel and Z-23, earned from an event, and I don't have those ships yet.

It looks like that cam is good only for that ship from my understanding.

Would be nice to grab them so you could use it when you unlock the ship in the future, though.

Well that's good at least. Thanks for the update.

I know earnable rewards go there for ships you don't currently own.

But for ships not yet unlocked and camos purchasable through dubloons? I'm not too sure; I guess something to check up on later.

How do you buy a camo in game for a ship you don't own? If that's a thing you can do I'd really like to know how.

I think they're assuming you can straight buy some with cash and not just Dubloons.

@TTK_Aegis

You can buy permanent camo for several French BBs in the premium shop. Same would apply to the space camo

If you dont own the ship you cannot purchase the camo unless WG puts it in premium shop!

The thing is that the news page specifically only lists doubloons.

"These camo patterns will be available for 8,000 [doubloons] and will provide the same economic bonuses of standard permanent camouflages:

Standard dispersion and concealment bonuses
50% off post-battle repairs
+20% [credits]
+100% [XP]"

 

The last special event perma-camo we got were the Halloween ones.  You could acquire them as drops from the special crates, so it's not like Doubloons camo where you have to have the ship first to even see and buy the doubloons camo.

 

Edit:  8k Doubloons is extraordinarily high.  Typical Tier X Perma Camo costs 5k Doubloons.

Yes you can own Camos for ship you dont own. I have camos I earned that I can;t use because I dont have the ship. Usually, you can see what camos you have for what ship in your inventory management option of your acct. GL!

Now if I am correct, which I think I am, the camos are only available in the game. You cant buy them in the premium shop. In order to access a ships camo you have to own the ship. 

 

I think

Wow. . . 8k for those camos? Guess I won't be buying any and will just mod them on my side instead if possible.

I took a quick look and didn't see anything.  Does anyone know if you'll be able to turn off the space camo similar to Halloween and ARP?  I don't have anything against them, I'd just rather not see them.  Also, not sure about space ones yet, but some of the Halloween camos provided an advantage.  The Tirpitz one, I believe it was, displayed in a way where you couldn't see the smoke and therefore couldn't judge the speed/direction as accurately.

They stated in the video if I recall that yes, you can opt out of seeing them like ARP and such.

Yup, thanks.  I never watch those.  I just read the notes.

Yes and there has been talk of event crates already i.e. more gambling. So you could spend cash on the crates and get the camos if you're in the .00001%.

It's clearly stated in the patch notes page.
