It has not been released.

My speculation? Standard premium ship. There hasn't been a new BB lately, and if they get it right it will be very popular (especially up here in the Northeast).

I saw a video with it brawling with secondaries with a Bismark. Of course it lost, but the secondaries can reach out past 10km I believe

Sweet, now why don't Iowa/MO, NC, and AL have that secondary reload time?

I agree USN secondaries are a joke in their current state, but if they were buffed into being effective the KM mains would cry foul that their specialty ain't special anymore.

I believe you are correct about the popularity of "Big Mamie" here in the Northeast. I can't wait for her to hit the Tech Tree.

Purchased the Premium Alabama solely because of its 'Sister-ship' status to the Massachusetts. Just about a week later I heard the Massachusetts was in testing stage...:Smile_facepalm:  Oh well.

It’s just a reload buff, range will always be their weakness.

MA will have same range as Bismarck. They buffed range and ROF

EDIT - so is this down vote legit or from my little forum stalker troll? If this is legit please tell me what is bad about simply stating stat info. LOL

EDIT 2 - So still getting downvotes for JUST posting factual stats. People on this forum are freaking hilarious. The Bismarck and Massachusetts will have the EXACT same range for secondary guns. It's a FACT...

  • Bismarck: w/ SBM2 + Capt with AFT + Secondary Flag = 11.34km range
  • Massachusetts: w/ SBM2 + Capt with AFT + Secondary Flag = 11.34km range

Unless I'm mistaken, SBM3 is a 6th slot upgrade, which isn't available to T8 ships.

Typo - should be SBM2 as in the section above it. Corrected it. My apologies.

It doesn't affect reload though, just range and dispersion.  Taking Adrenaline Rush out of the equation, 3.6s looks to be the reload speed of the secondary battery when Basic Firing Training is factored in.

Yup. Guess I wasn't thinking straight when I did it and thought SBM3 would be available? Removed that line from the original. Thanks for catching that.

I wouldn't be surprised if this ship is going to be released along with the US Light Cruiser line.

Way I got it was a popup in port asking if I wanted to buy it.    So far I have found two things I think should be changed.

You only have a fighter plane no spotter.  Don't see many CV's so fighter is a waste. Also the main guns are something else......I think I almost

hit a ship at max range, was pretty happy about that until I realized the ship was behind me and I had all my guns facing forward.  Lets just say

dispersion is a little on the wild side.  They warn you about that on the wright up but it was worse than I was expecting even with the warning.

Hey

I thought about getting the Mass. but since I already have the Alabama and it's the same class of ship and with better main guns, why bother.  If I want a real secondary build ship; I will take my German which works just fine.

It appears Mass also has much improved accuracy, a -40% base buff iirc before the modules and skills. 
Honestly, if this gets widespread known I wouldn't be surprised if German BB mains started crying. IIRC LWM also did a test of Mass vs Bis in full secondary IFHE builds, and Massachusetts murdered the Bis every time in secondary only duels.
It's not surprising either. The German battleships actually miss a hilarious amount of shells, it's like the accuracy of the secondaries is equivalent to the main guns (bad). Whenever I check hits/damage/shots fired, there is a ton of missed potential. Particularly, the 105mm guns are very shotgun like at range, with incredible spread. Massachussets having basically an Atlanta strapped to it with equivalent accuracy makes them far more effective as a rule. The most fires and damage per shots come from the 150mm guns on Bismarck in my view, and Mass having 127mm guns with lower reload means it strikes a better midpoint when specced into IFHE.
