I know it will be unveiled tomorrow, but what do you think it will be like? Something like the normal twelve gun heavy cruiser, or will they go with something odd like a tech tree super cruiser?

Edit: Well I wasn't expecting anything like this.

I have money in with bookies from Saint Louie to Alabamy that she'll have a hull, guns, portholes, and at least one funnel. They called me bonkers, but I'm in it to win it!

Tech-tree super cruiser is my supposition.

That is one safe bet.

The Italians and Russians shared alot of design similarities(in part due to many spaghetti ships making their way to the soviets after the war)

Like the Ansaldo project. I found this image on the subject and here is what it looks like I think this will be close to what it is.

Not Ansaldo. That will almost certainly be T10 Steel or Coal. Some crazy, fake design with 203's is more likely. 

If you're reserved on that (the thought of bull-s designs), just realize that Paolo Emilio already exists.

 

Speaking of Paolo Emilio, I wonder what the tier 10 DD is now that she's a premium? This based off the camo and premium status in her name from the pictures.

Probably something alone the lines of an upscaled Zara with 3x4 20.3cm rifles.

That's most likely it.

99% sure it will be some form of this or mid 30s ~20k super cruiser project.

1% - Possibility of a Super Washington. Which I am guessing will now be tier VIII/IX instead?

Figures they'd try and one up the previous T10s. I'm getting a bit nervous for my Zao, considering how low her fire rate is and stuff like HIV beating her reload with bigger guns and similar per shell damage. That never sat right with me, even if Zao is meant to fight from range.

Not going to lie, the Juventus part of me isn't happy that they named the Tier 10 the Milano while the Torino is at Tier 9.

I frankly think this thing looks like a joke. I refuse to believe the Italians would have ever considered such a wretched turret arrangement.

It's times like this when I can enjoy the fact I found enlightenment about WoWS' true nature of being a non historically accurate arcade game before I started playing, and can now enjoy the fact we're getting a Tier 10 cruiser with fifteen 203mm guns without caring about its historical practicality.

 

Yah, it would be nice to get the Ansaldo project sometime down the road, I really hope we do, but I'm also really hyped for the Milano.
