There are 8-10 new permanent camos available for Ironium in the Public Test of 0.8.2.  They aren't pictured in the Armory so I thought a peek would be of interest.  N.b. These may be W.I.P. and nothing like the final version.

I bought two, Bionic Algérie and Saint-Louis. This is the Tier IX.  I'd show the Tier VII but it's next to impossible to get the ship to display it on.

This I wouldn't be embarrassed to drive on my daily commute to the battle line.

To add, at this point at least the only camos are for US and French cruisers T6 - T9.  Would have been nice to have a T10 or camos for other lines.  I'm currently grinding the french cruisers so those will at least be useful for me to save expendable camos.

Just an FYI; you can find all of the "Bionic" Camouflage here. Not my site, but they're all there for those interested.

Also to tease, courtesy of said site:

Shimakaze's Space Camo: Distinctly similar to Zao's Space Camo.

Hindenburg's Space Camo: Distinctly similar to Große Kurfurst's Space Camo.

Henri IV's Bionic Camo (NOT A SPACE CAMO; it's part of the Bionic Set): While Henri lost out on getting a Space Camouflage, the Bionic actually looks the best on her; not so much on others due to the more "real" elements like the massive panel radar on some USN ships.

It would be nice if WG focused more on historical camo than try to convert WoWs into the next starship video game.

I think they look pretty cool. Better than the halloween event ships you see sailing around with their camo.

I'm honestly not a big fan of the space camos. They feel a bit too uniform in their color scheme and that price tag makes them a little unappealing. Though at the same time anyone who does like these is perfectly entitled to do so and to support Wargaming for creating something they like. Me, I personally love the Halloween camos because I feel they give all the ships personality and I have all those with the camos in my port even if I despise the ship (glances at North Carolina).

This, these space camos will be turned off.

The bonus for the Black camo.  Jeez...

 

They're nerfing Monarch when it's a middling performance Battleship?  LOL!  I can't recall a thread made by anyone that screamed Monarch was OP in some form or fashion!

It's as stupid as a nerf as what Seattle got not long ago.

Maybe WG will also give the Monarch's guns slightly better AP performance in exchange? I mean, Monarch's 15" Mk.III guns are somehow worse than other forumites' projections for what the 15" Mk.II performance should have been, even with short-fuse.

Or they might just upgrade her Repair Party to that of Lion's and Conqueror's. That seems like a more convenient option for them than spending any more time trying to balance Monarch again, after all the delays during the line's testing and once more with the recent test changes.

My Bismark is wearing her Halloween costume and would like a word with you.

I think I've acquired most of them and personally like the differences. The Mogami's, I think it's the squid one, isn't for me but most of the rest I enjoy especially since I've gotten them in the Halloween crates largely for free from doing the missions. I don't own any of the space camos.

What do Monarch/Seattle nerfs, or the Black camo, have anything to do with the space/bionic camos, which is the topic of this thread.  If you meant Bionic instead of Black, they have the same bonuses as standard permacamos so the question remains.

Eh, not a fan of the "Bionic" skins. They look like space camos that are only half-done. I like the looks of the space camo, those models are all varying degrees of gorgeous, but I also won't be getting any of them. I like them within the event, not sailing around in randoms.

My post was initially on topic, son.

 

You didn't follow YamatoA150's link, which is fine.  I was going to show a site screenshot but that's not necessary as WG had an official release information about the other camo Black will access.

 

In 0.8.2 update Black will get the new permanent camouflage “Marlin” for Molybdenum with the following bonuses:

3% to detectability range.
+4% to maximum dispersion of shells fired by the enemy at your ship.
+150% Experience per battle
+150% Free experience per battle
+150% Commander’s experience per battle
-10% ship’s post-battle service

 

That is the highest set of bonus I have ever seen on Perma-Camo in the game.  However, it will be limited by Molybdenum access and I don't know how one achieves getting that.  Again, this is extremely high set of camo bonus.  Hell, even even the best of consumable camo doesn't get that high.

 

I don't give a sh*t about the Bionic camo.

Why not both? Choice is a good thing, and you can always turn off the weird space stuff in your port settings.

I'd love to see Measure 1 and Measure 12 available for any and all US ships.

It’s nice to see variety in the permacamos. Yea there are purists who don’t want to see these but that’s what the option to turn them off is for. Nice job wg in giving the ones who like this kind of camo some more options for our ship to sport.
