Over an year ago, St. Petersburg was constantly asking me for some JMSDF DD for the alternate IJN DD branch, and I told them it was impossible. Basically said just shove in Akizuki Kai and a bigger version with an additional turret.

 

And thus.....

Always feels good to be listened to, even if it took more than an year.

 

 

Apparently photos are by Femennenly. Got the notification on Discord myself.

Now we just have to get them to listen on the USN cruiser split- hopefully that won't take a year.

I don't play DDs but good for new, non-BB ships in progress.

This is fantastic news. I'm looking forward to getting my hands on that tier 10-  imagine the amount of shells that can put down range!

Somehow I doubt it. I think certain parties will descend like a plague of locusts when they wind of this. I wonder if this is the release they plan for the 3rd quarter.

Edit: I stand corrected, turns out this was on Femennenly's twitter so I guess it is a semi-official reveal. Definitely looking forward to the tier X.

I just wonder how much hp the T10 will have, akizuki hp at T8 already rivals T10 dds short of khaba. It is going to be glorious.

Alpha Tester in WG parlance is not what you think it is. They have no connection, no NDA, no restrictions.

they are people that started playing the game while it was in Alpha stage, very early on, before the Beta test started.

The line's ill designed if they still have to rely on a 4 point skill, IFHE. Why play a super akizuki when there's already a Minotaur.

Cause it doesn't have a citadel?

Whilst that is true now back when WoWS was in Alpha testing, all testers had to sign an NDA.

I'm guessing Harugumo / 5th turret Akizuki would join the ranks of ships created by the WG design bureau. If it is indeed a fictional product, I think it marks the first IJN ship in game that is 'fake'. I'm not entirely clued up on IJN DDs though, so I'll refrain from consigning it to the ranks of Republique, Conqueror, Monarch, Roon & Kurfurst just yet.

 

Edit: Personally, I would think Yamazuki makes more sense as a name for V7 than Kitakaze, but that is just me.

it depends on your definition. Zao is a 'fake' ship technically as she exists only in specifications - the first time she was even drawn up was for a magazine!

Aye, it depends. Specifications for a design escape the cut for me, even if no drawings appeared. It is at the low end of spectrum though compared to most. Fake for me means WG have completely made the ship up around their criteria.

Good priorities really, throw in the 13th and 14th IJN tech-tree Destroyers before any from the UK, France, Italy...

I'm assuming that this is the 'inspiration' for the T10 Harugumo:

super_akizuki_coloured_by_tzoli-d7phuot.

Mind you, this is a completely fake design, and according to the Kitakaze having a sextuple launcher installed, I'm assuming Harugumo will have one as well which differs from the design above.

 

I'm most excited for Kitakaze though. An Akizuki with Shimakaze's power plant will likely fix Akizuki's one major drawback, poor speed and maneuverability. I have to admit, the T10 will also likely be fun. DD with the largest broadside by gun count, at 10 barrels. It'll be nasty, but that 4th turret(at the top of the pyramid) looks to be the stinker as the firing angles don't look any better than Myoko's.
