A T9 BattleCruiser For Everyone?

With battlecruisers/heavy cruisers Kron out and Stalingrad and Alaska coming shortly, I wonder what the odds are that a O-Class for Germany and B-65 for Japan aren't far behind.

Oh God no, basically a Gniesenau at tier 9? I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit. 

NO!

I am hoping for B-65 at the very least in the future as it is an interesting ship.

I’d rather have P-Class in the game Scharhorst guns at tier 9 I highly doubt 15inch guns would work at tier 9 on a battlecruiser. 283mm guns could and would have a faster reload of around 13-15 seconds I would imagine if it was put in at tier 9 as a free xp. Everyone wants to compare Alaska to scharhorst yet they forgot about P-Class. On second thought it may not be strong enough for tier 9 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-class_cruiser 

better off as a tier 7 ship I guess.

Nelson came in at a tier 7 for a lot less. I'd love to see more development like that.

For the next T9 FXP ship can we please just have a normal Cruiser? Pretty please? The reason I enjoy cruisers so much is that I know if I miss it's just my own fault not RNG screwing with me. To me a Battlecruiser is just the thin armor of a CA with the drunk shells of a BB. :Smile_hiding::Smile_smile:

A high tiered money maker for us pew pew guys would be most appreciated. :cap_rambo:

O-Class was planned to be armed with 6 380mm guns, the same guns the Bismarck and Tirpitz. You'll be slinging a very low number of shells compared to Stalingrad and Kronstadht, though they're of a larger caliber. And considering that it's still German dispersion, I think the O-Class could be quite undergunned at Tier 9.

you would overmatch 25mm plates. that alone makes it slightly more competitive. especially at low tiers.

stalingrad and Alaska are both shaping up to be very accurate and accurate respectively.

although neither of those are battlecruisers, and kronstadt while intended to be one, isnt in the current implementation. 

theres actually very few ships in game that could be considered traditional battlecruisers. off hand the only ones i can think of are Kongo and Amagi, both are extremely fun to play, and tier for tier are strong....the Amagi was by far the most fun i had in the IJN line.

P Class looks like a Graf Spee on roids. No thanks at 750K FXP and at T9.

I would prefer to see the P-class at tier 7.

NO!

Except it would have Cruiser perks. 6 larger caliber guns means cruiser accuracy can be justified similar to how Yamato and Republic have fantastic accuracy to offset their fewer cannons. Maybe a 32mm bow too. Could absolutely work.

Republique doesn't have great accuracy :Smile_Default:  She shoots fast, but she's not accurate.

Well meant to say tier 7 as it fits better there.
