I only got the Oktya.

 

But, I really would love to see both a Russian and Italian BB Line implemented for everyone to grind. Means more T10 BB's for me to grind to.

The later I can see. The former would be pretty much all paper after tier V.

You could have got her over a marathon last year.

I don't want to disappoint you but the next line will be RN DD.

I think it was a couple months ago that dataminers found shell data for Soviet 356mm, 406mm and 457mm guns in the test client. So they're almost certainly coming this year.

Russian battleships will be funny, since more then half of them will be reskins from other countries.

Naw, there are enough designs to make an actual line without doing that.

According to WG themselves a lot of work was already done on the RU BB tree but were put on hiatus because the community (especially the RU ones) wanted others nations such as the British, French, and Germans first.

So I fully expect RU BBs sometime soon(tm). Just depends on how soon.

 

Next line has confirmed to be RN Destroyers which will be the Q3 2018 ship line. WG has also said Q4 will be Italian Cruisers, but plans could change. I see Q4 being either Italian cruisers of RU battleships with which ever didnt make 2018 will make Q1 or Q2 2019.

The Tier X Russian BB wont be too OP, stealth at 4.1 km, guns that savage anything and a better heal then British BBs :)

Might need torps as well, Kitakami style for close quarter fighting!!

Russian Battleships for Russian Christmas in January for all the good little proletariats?

 

If an Italian heavy cruiser or Russian battleship not in cruiser’s clothing is announced should give a hint.

I doubt it, as most of the rest of THIS year will be Royal Navy DDs and the universal CV rework, and that will be all the disappointment anyone can handle.

No, actually, there are not. I think the Russians only had 4 classes of BBs INCLUDING the paper designs, and two of them are in-game already. And most of them are pre-World War 1 designs.

Or in two months. Gamescom is in August so we'll see what WG teases then.

I dunno, I've seen some pretty convincing line proposals, here's the best one in my opinion:

Tier iii:  Skvortsov Design 1907 (This fits the 305mm shells from the leak)

Tier iv: Sevastopol (Gangut class)

Tier v: Imperatritsa Mariya

Tier vi: Borodino (what if completed and 30's modernized) (fits 356mm shells from leak)

Tier vii: bubnov 1914 or putilov design 1 or 3

Tier viii: 1917 black sea design or Pre-Project 23 (basically UP.41 but changed and enlarged by the russians) (fits 406mm/45 shells from leak)

Tier ix: sovetsky Soyuz (fits 406mm/50 shells from leak)

Tier x: Paper design with 457mm guns (new shells from leak), possibly based off project 24.

Half, or more, of these either never existed, never got the upgrades they'll have in game, or were never completed. More Russian Bias nonsense.
