Since ARP has made its return, I wonder how us players who have already got Takao four years ago would be able to get the red version of the ship.  Will it be a camo option, or would we have to fork over real money to buy?

Red version, I thought there was only the blue version of Takao?

You can change the camo now . Use the RED HEAT camo. Of course you have to win that first.

The old ARP Takao doesn't have access to the new camo.  Just the default light blue one.  There's no separate purchase in the Premium Shop, Armory, nor Camouflage tab for the ship.

Check the news page for ARP, or the Premium Shop.  The ARP Takao is colored red there.

The "Red" is more like the ghastly pink on the Haguro.

You're thinking of ARP Ashigara.

Well, I hope they offer the red camo for sale somehow if we already have the ship.  Better yet, give it free :fish_aqua:

Ashigara is somewhat more muted.

I'm not seeing any way to get the red camo unless you buy a brand new Takao.

Yeah, I keep hoping I'm just tired and not reading things right, but the only way to spring for it seems to be to pay out the cost of a new tier VIII premium.  Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong.  I hope I'm wrong.

If you buy the Red Takao, you get back 8800 dubs, so really, as long as your ok with the dubs, the camo costs about 26 bucks CDN, but you also get a 10pt commander, port slot and a mission for xp yada yada...
It's the only way you can get it as far as I can see, at least for now.

I wonder if Iona will be in missions or will stay cash only? She would be fun to use on my future I-400 sub once subs get added assuming WG does not add the ARP I-401 sub.

Also disappointing that ARP Takao and the Red ARP Myoko are not in the missions. But I just excited to finally have a shot at getting ARP ships and captains. Already have 30k of the 50k mission completed, and then I will dash through to the 3 million credits which will be a little grind, then progress until the 100k Captain XP on which will be another grind. The 15k base XP is easy enough considering I typically get 1k+ base XP each random or Scenerio battle.

This event is going to force me into major Elite Captain XP farming mode as those ARP captains will all need to be brought up to 10-12 points so that they can hit baseline usability in battles. Which might be part of WG’s plan which if so is clever and I gladly take the bait of having to grind plenty of ECXP.

ARP Maya I think was the red one, but never offered

Takao started off with a red color scheme in the Manga and Anime, but switch to blue after joining the protagonist's side.  It comes from them being the Fleet of Blue Steel.

No Takao was wearing red initially in the Anime

When Takao was still Fleet of Fog, she was red.

When she went all tsundere heavy cruiser and joined with Gunzou and Blue Steel, she manipulated the nanomaterial of her ship to match Gunzou’s ‘color,’ (Iona’s I-401 blue.)

Ah I see, lol guess it’s a good thing I am about to go through and rewatch the ARP series again. As I think a couple details like that went a little fuzzy despite my memory being really good.

Who would we contact or tag from WG if we want to suggest they sell the camo separately for those who already have the ship?

I am aware that ARP Takao switched sides and colors. I was talking about the red cruiser that was never offered : ARP Maya, ARP Kongo's sidekick /watcher/keeper...spare parts lol 

They also never offered ARP Hyuga (Ise class ?) , I-401 or her two sisters (I-400 & I-402 I think) as they were subs, maybe they will later, since subs are coming.

Think I'll just pass on buying the red version since the blue will now have even more rarity to it in game.  Just my way of coming to terms with WGs insanity :fish_happy:
