 Iona, the Mental Model of Japanese submarine I-401, just wondering because I would like to have it, hopefully, it won't get nerf avalanched like the Kleber. Yes, I am still salty.

Will WG leave the low hanging fruit on the money tree unpicked?

It would be hard to nerf something that isn't even out yet.  The real problem is that submarines have not been finalized yet, and the timetable for them to be actually introduced is also not finalized.  I don't see how WG could commit to the release of a submarine model that requires the collaboration of the outside source to be still active when they don't know if the entire submarine mechanic will be in the game in time for it.  Thus, I doubt very much you will see any kind of information on this in the foreseeable future, unless normal submarine play is introduced first.

 

Understandably, quite a few of us would like to have certain ships (U.S.S. New Jersey, where are you?), but that isn't going to get them into the game.  Only if WG feels there is a point to putting in the work to get them in will decide that.

The Sentoku subs, if they ever make their way into the game, would probably have the ability to launch scout planes, allowing her to detect ships whilst deep underwater.

They might release an I-400 class premium, with an ARP I-401 skin being made available?

If anything, I might pick up the commander so that when we do get subs, I'll have a 11 pt Japanese commander ready to go.

That would be awesome.  I'd buy her!  That being said, I wouldn't hold my breath on it.  If they can get the okay to run the collab again when submarines drop, then there is a chance she'll show.

I honestly doubt we'll ever see an I-400 class in game, and the IP would the be the least of the issues. 1) The I-400s were nearly twice the displacement some late war destroyers, and 2) they were primarily aircraft carriers that submerged. My guess that second part would really throw some people into a tizzy.

Not saying it wouldn't be cool, though. Just a huge pain to squeeze in. My guess is if we see any of the oddball subs, it'll likely be something like Surcouf and USS Argonaut/Narwal.

I am saving blue camo, do one way or the other my I-400 will look as ARP as possible. Just hoping they add Iona as earn able captain in missions as I can’t spend cash on the game.

     ***SPOILER ALERT!***

     In the anime film series finale, Cadenza, we learn that Iona was never really her own individual self. She was a dual-core creation of Yamato, made to set the stage for Yamato's final confrontation with Musashi.

     If you have Yamato or want to grind for her, Iona would make an appropriate commander there too, at least until WeeGee expands the fleet.

Don’t have her.

Kept a promise to myself and refused to get her until Musashi came out. Bonus points for her being a pre-refit version with the 4x3 Mogami turrets secondary battery.

Not sure I even really want to get it.
