let me get this straight:

 

she weighs 42,300 metric tons and fires almost free 305mm custom armor piercing shells at 3.2 shells per minute,it costs nothing to fire this weapon for 16.3 seconds.

some cruisers think they can outsmart her,maybe,,but she have yet to meet cruisers that can outsmart stalinium.

 

now seriously,what would happen if this ship became available in the arsenal?how she would change the tier X meat?

She will still have the same issues as the Krondstadt. You get better damage in AP overpens than using HE. You will be at a disadvantage in a bow tank fast since 25mm of bow armor will not be enough tank 16 inch shells unlike a DM. Your guns can overmatch the bow of light cruisers and that's about it. 

Hopefully the amount overshots will decrease due to tighter dispersion.

it's the ridiculous dispersion and fast travel that makes her remind me of cesare,bad armor but guns so accurate,it doesn't matter.

One version being tested has 32mm, though.  Both version of it are broken at present either with BB tankyness+HE+silly sigma OR crusier dispersion+ruddershift+range+autobounce angles+shorter fuse

Both are overpowered at present.  Let's not forget that only the upper part of the bow would be 25mm on the version without 32mm, as the lower bow and sides are 50mm.

WG: 'We're not going to allow 2 battleships in CB because with coordination two can easily set up a crossfire and dominate the whole map making cruiser play less dynamic'

Also WG: 'Here's Stalingrad! Cruiser matchmaking, 9x 12in guns with insane ballistics and better autobounce angles!'

Thanks for the Tip! Outfit the Stalingrad with a Spotter and whale on lurking CA's!  Note: Wait until the Alaska shows up. 12 inch guns with the performance of Pre WW2  14 inchers. I'd prefer if she had better HE performance than the Stalingrad.

You, Alaska should be fun (and also T9). Smaller and sneaker than Kron with good AA.

Have you not watched FLAMU's videos?

Version 1 has cruiser dispersion. AP only.

Version 2 has BB dispersion. AP & HE.

Both ships are stupidly armoured.
