Has a Decision been made on Jean Bart? T8 or T9?

I was looking at the preliminary numbers on Jean Bart.  Two tiers of secondary guns (152 mm & 100 mm), but rather short ranged at 7.56 km (when using AFT, Secondary Mod 2 & Mike Yankee Soxsix flag), compared to 10.58 km with the same setup on Richelieu, and 11.34 km on Alsace.  Her total anti-aircraft DPS of 1,007 (BFT/Manual AA/ November Echo Setteseven flag) is miles above Richelieu & Alsace.

If she gets plopped into T8, I'll definitely look at getting her.  But if it's Tier 9 where she ends up, I'll pass.  She'd be a fun AA escort, but her shorter ranged secondaries & four less 15-inch guns than Alsace will put her at a definite disadvantage at a tier where the 16-inch shell rules.

It's already decided to place her at tier 9.

 

Her secondary range has been buffed from a base 5km range to a 7km range. So you can get the 10km range secondaries just as the Richelieu

Her gimmick is the reload booster that lasts 30 sec and cuts her main battery reload in half.

Its tiering was never in question.

Hey

Has it been decided if Jean Bart will be a Free XP ship or some kind of Coal ship or perhaps a premium?  I'm debating between the Jean Bart, the Alaska and the current Musashi.  It's helpful to know how these ships are going to be advertised to the public so we can make educated decisions.
