According to the wiki http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Wichita USS Wichita is now a promo ship. Kinda sad as I was really looking forward to buying her. Is this actually the case ? She really going to be strictly a promo ?

Promotion.  Usually that means give aways for something.

Howdy folks, please bear in mind until a ship has hit the live server it is still in development.  Until you have heard something from a portal article, news post, or development blog it isn't final.

Wait it out guys unless it his the DEV Facebook I would take everything here as speculations.   As Radar_X pointed out noting is final.

WG has been really good about giving ships away in campaigns and other means.

Well, that certainly would be a bizarre use of development dollars. Not to mention that it seems to be a fairly popular ship. I guess I'd wait and see. Something tells me that if it is merely promotional, Witch-a-gate will quickly metastasize, and we'll wind up with it anyway. :P

I think Promo can be misleading here ... would you believe Atago B is currently listed as a Promo?

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Atago_B

There are actually several ships listed as Promo, which we know is not the case. 

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Category:Promo_and_gift_ships

As @Radar_X advises, be patient until its status is announced.

What’s the last ship they gave away that wasn’t available for outright purchase?

I think you're talking about the T3 Charleston ... was originally a promo ship for new players I believe.  Now in the Arsenal.

I suspect this is a case of accidental cut and paste text from another ship's wiki page template. Chill.

Good possibility.

Given the impending CVpocalypse, I'd expect the next big event promo to be one of the reworked premium carriers.

I think you nailed it. Thank you.

Sounds like it will be offered in some way other than a straight cash purchase in the premium shop.   Coal, Steel, campaign reward, etc.  I'm fine with that

It also shows Azuma, Lazo, and Irian for 99,999 credits. Those numbers and currency types are all wrong. I wouldn't read much into the Wichita thing.

Ahh, Wichita.  At first she was going to be great, but she got gutted.
