USS Charleston (C-22)  was going to be made available in the Arsenal.  I assume this maybe her.

Wait belay my last,  that looks to be for steel

PlzNo. I need something to spend coal on, not YET ANOTHER tier X steel ship :/

Wouldn't be for steel though, I hope (I know, announced for coal).

Could just be a place holder picture for it though.

Most likely the Charleston for 15k coal.

 

Edit: Just got into the game and Charleston is already there. So a new Steel ship. Maybe one to replace Flint IF Flint gets pulled?

Sorry, I did not include it in the original post but Charleston is already in the arsenal.

The azuma is still being tested and is a WiP. WG wouldnt tease a ship thats still in testing

 

That is the Alaska

That thought had passed through my mind. However, Azuma has not even entered testing yet (it was just released to Supertesters in 0.7.12 according to the patch notes). So would they really announce that it would be in the arsenal?

I have to wonder if that "Soon" ship placeholder in the Arsenal to be acquired by Steel is for the Alaska?

It's American for certain, you can tell buy the radar mounted on the rangefinders.  Bow looks like an American cruiser by shape, but doesn't look quite right for Alaska.  Alaska's wigwam is also missing, as is the forward 40mm mount.  If Salem was not already in the arsenal, that would have been my pick.

Of course, it could be a placeholder image too.

No. The sorting is by price. It's going to be another 28k steel ship and Alaska is a T9 cruiser. They aren't going to price a T9 cruiser the same as the Stalingrad. 

It's the Azuma.

Concur, generic placeholder image probably.  Not Alaska's bow.

Agreed - I have a job that keeps me away from home effectively 12 hours a day 5 days a week, I don't have the time or the patience to grind ranked, nor the time and schedule flexibility to "work" a job playing clanwars every day.  As such, I am effectively excluded from 90% of steel.  I'll be using the upcoming campaigns and events and whatnot to get some, but the more that gets locked behind a resource that I effectively am unable to get for personal and practical reasons (yes I could choose to spend every waking moment of the weekend banging my head against a wall to try to rank up for example, but that is as much as job, and not so much "fun" which is what I want from games) the more I resent that I'm not deemed worthy of rewards despite being a whale of a customer since semi-closed Beta.

No. That ship is even farther than the tier 10 Azuma in the Development cycle. There are only 3 options: Alaska, Neustrashimy and Azuma. 2 of those are tier 9, one is tier 10.

I say we don't even wait for the actual facts to be revealed and RIOT NOW.  In this busy holiday season, why not avoid the rush?

If the silhouette is correct, it shouldn't be the Alaska since she had a set of AA gun tubs on the bow. The ONLY T-X that has been teased is the IJN Azuma which has a similar bow/mast. Of course since it just went to ST, so it's really early, but hey maybe WG is teasing it so players know it's coming in 3ish months. Maybe they've finally learned the difference between marketing and announcing a release is for sale.

Azuma I could see going for steel.   If it is the Alaska going for steel, things will get ugly around here very rapidly.
