This was announced today on WOWs blog (link below).

Short an curlies, its called the Yashima, has a Yamato hull, different AA........AND 3x2 510mm guns

https://www.wows-gamer-blog.com/2020/01/ijn-yashima-tier-x-japanese-battleship.html

Am hoping this paves the way for the Germans to get their first T9/10 Premium BB. We are the only faction with a full BB line that does not have at least one T9 or T10 Premium BB. And remember, the Siegfried when it comes is classed as Cruiser, not a BB.

Perhaps a H42 type with 480mm guns cause Yashima. What am I saying, Id settle for a premium Freddy with torps.

In other news, looks like we are getting 3x3 305 mm version of the Siegfried (called Agir). So Odin guns on a Siggy.

Anyhow, happy we are getting three new premium ships, but sad that non of these are a T9/10 Premium BB.

What do you guys want to see in the way of a German premium T9/10 BB? H42, H44, modified Kurfy or Freddy? Something else all together?

Cheers

Sure I'll take a H-42 or H-43, but I think H-44 would be a bit too much for this game. Not because of the firepower, but the firepower combined with the tonnage and hull armor. The combination just seems a bit too much for me.

Just what we need more fantasy ships. Sad maybe in a couple of years we can get 1000 mm guns and 6 turrets per ship. Well I guess it was a matter of time wot has a double gun tank next a double turret tank. Starblazzers hear we come!!!!

I would like too see the h44 in game because 131,000 tons  1,131 feet long.

As astounding as that would be, it would be one heck of a torpedo magnet.  Better hope it has some kind of amazing torpedo belt to absorb all those fish it's likely to eat.

I would like to see a lot of these newer ships put into a tr 11 group. Colbert, smolensk,  yashima, h44, stalingrad . There's plenty of concept super ships that could fill  tr 11.

As a Destroyer main who OCCASIONALLY plays other types.....

Bring it on!    With so many ships just spitting out HE shells another Yamato is just a target.

Not for me. I personally would love to see H44 in all her oversized glory... lol. :Smile_veryhappy:

If it really happens, I'm sure WG will find a way to "balans" her... because she's German... lel. :Smile_smile:

Plus, on many maps, it would be perpetually aground. Rudder shift=20 seconds. The turning radius would be measured in time-zones.

That said, I don't know how you balance all these super BBs against existing T10s (as there is no T11). Of course WG has been busy creating super/battle cruisers and pitting them head-to-head against regular cruisers so there is a history there.
