No. It was removed from sale for a reason, and a good one at that. If you want the OP ships, wait for Christmas and load up on crates, but having fewer Belfasts around makes for a healthier T5-7 environment for new-ish players to learn and improve.

So we want more radar to go with the current serving of radar?

Which will then be topped off with a dessert of "even more radar!" next patch.

Yeah lets not bring back Belfast.

 

While we're at it, let's stop selling Saipan and Kaga :Smile_sceptic:

If you want a T7 radar cruiser, Indianapolis is available for free. I passed on Belfast and stuck with Fiji.

Where did you see Indianapolis for free? Its not in the in game mission board?

Fiji's a damn good bote. She rivals Belfast as being my favorite tier 7 ship.

There's a series of missions starting now you can complete to get it.

Oops, my bad...the collection gives you American camo and flags, not the ship. I had heard that it included the ship. Instead, you can use the Indianapolis to gain collection containers.

You're saying what I thought it was, too. Unless it's part of the next update, I don't see it mentioned.

Hmm, the in game event says you complete 21 of 26 missions to claim Indianapolis.

Honestly, it's bad that such a historic museum ship like the Belfast is no longer for sale. However they are caught between a rock and a hard place with it. They can't change the ship to make it saleable without having to reimburse all current owners of it and they can't sell an op ship. 

I think they should re release it. However they should re release it as a t8 premium it its pre '56 config. That would basically be a copy paste of the Edinburgh, but leave it its he, give it a heal and torps and give it the option between smoke and radar. Then the eddy maintains its better ap while the Belfast gets the option for he. They could differentiate between the 2 with the year of the refit that is modeled

You'd have the t7 Belfast 1956 and the t8 Belfast 1945

I’m down with that, then I’ll have three ships that aren’t longer for sale.

Sold Fiji because its soggy crumpet throwers apparently can’t hurt anything; also Leander and Eddy.

No plans to bother with Neptune and Mino-tan. Belfast rots slowly in Suisun Bay.

Saw the missions in my port this morning, should be available unless maybe a player doesn’t have any quailed for the event ships?

Already have it anyway, will be skipping the marathon unless I somehow accidentally complete it.

I want the pay... Belfast buffed with torps as an option to hydro. There. I think that'll do it nicely. She'll be on an even keel with her competitors now.

You get the Indianapolis when you complete all the missions. Current owners of the ship, well, this:

"If you already have Indianapolis in your Port, you’ll receive a commander, a slot and compensation in Credits equal to the ship's cost."

Or wg can increase the number of radars down at tiers 7 and expand radar to tier 6.
