Cool, it's the never built Mackensen class battlecruiser. I like how it looks.

With WG modernizations all over it though, so it's not really Mackensen.

Interesting!  I rather like the design and the stats seem reasonably nice.

 

Not sure if I'd get it considering I have Scharnhorst and Tirpitz already, but we'll see.

Hi

Your right looking at some drawings on Google and comparing it with WOWS pictures its definitely modernized its looks like she has the Atlantic bow , also altered the shape of the smoke funnels.

Those are just a few things I noticed at a glance bit disappointing don't get me wrong happy to see another German ship and a Battlecruiser at that just wish they would just do some of the old girls like  Von Der Tann  or derfflinger  or any of them in there original configuration.

Oh well ones better then none I guess

cheers

Sweet!  All over it.

Another secondary heavy German boat.  Love it.   Of course, as a battlecruiser brawling probably not her thing, but whatever, nice to have them anyway,  I do like battlecruisers.

Too bad the casemate secondaries are HE.  I've actually found that the AP secondaries on Bayern do HUGE damage to destroyers and cruisers.  Way outpacing the HE.  Maybe they're worried that's too much.

incorrect.  Partially built.  Hull of Mackensen was laid down and nearly completed.  Technically a "paper" ship but, actual plans existed.

If they go with the planned/designed armor layout she may not be too good of a brawler. At least not as good as other German BBs in game since she was not designed with a turtleback.

The concealment, secondaries, and AA seem a bit strong, really. The concealment at the very least, needs a nerf. The secondaries should probably lose some casemate mounted guns in exchange for those modern 105mm DP guns.

A German BB with 2.0 sigma? 

Color me interested. 

No kidding.

Hey guys, we made a battleship that can hit the broadside of a barn. Should we put guns like this on our ships in the future?

Nah.

Yup.  Here's a shot of Prinz Eitel Friedrich  and an unfinished Bayern class as they were in 1920:

No she needs it.  She's a battlecruiser with only a 28kt top speed.  Plus the 105mm guns aren't worth much as secondaries.

Finally, the plans for the Mackensons called for 300mm of armor over the citadel, yet she's getting only 270, so already nerfed.

Yeah I don't see her doing much brawling.  Just wish she was faster.  I guess she's faster than most battleships of the tier though.  But she'll have a problem when uptiered.

Let's be fair here; not many players were happy with dreadnoughts past T4 (all of the old A Hulls of the IJN BB line from T5 to T8) especially ones being sold (Ashitaka and Mutsu), and even WG admitted that dreadnought hulls past T4 didn't work well, which is why they preemptively began using partial to full fictional refit hulls starting with the KM BB line onwards and leaving dreadnoughts mostly to T4 and below.

Yeah and I’m not a fan of 30mm of her armor belt missing either. That’s the first thing I noticed when I saw the stats on the dev blog. She’s a good looking ship though and I will more than likely get her. I will be watching her development closely.
