You can't currently, but it will be back for coal at some point in the future, so keep an eye out in the Armoury (it won't be before Autumn though) xoxo

Previously you get it with steel but it was removed along with the black and neustrashimy. They intend to bring them back as coal ships but not until after 6 months from when they were removed.

How can I get this ship?

It'll be back for coal or steel... Maybe for the 4th of July sales.

It may be back in the Armory for coal sometime around Christmas. That was the original plan, but people in the know have indicated that the plans have changed/are changing.

The Flint is a great Free XP earner in Narai which might be a reason for pulling Flint from sale.

I honestly don’t know what the motivation is, nor do I know if the “changing plans” impact the Black, Flint, or Neustrashimy. I just know that when this was discussed earlier this year at least one CC gave us a bit of a “not so fast” when people began discussing the return of those three ships. Hopefully they all come back to the armory, I’d hate for anyone to miss them.

Sadly, that may be one of the few reasons left to get it.  The nerf hammer has hit them (Atlanta/Flint) hard for normal random/ranked play.

Used to be a great ship that you could get using steel.  As soon as 'us normal people' started getting it with accumulated steel, they nerfed it.  Now it's only good for OP.  Don't bother with it.  Remember, that those reviews you are seeing are before they nerfed it.  It's trash now.

I remember being in awe of the ship and its rapid fire guns when I first got it.  Had not played it in a while and got in a game the other day to see how it holds up...maybe warm up for ranked.

Man...the guns seem downright slow compared to other ships these days.  The AA is meh....it works but nothing compared to what it was.  Other than fire starting the guns dont seem to do much.

Just seemed like a shell of what it used to be.  It's ok but....I think they removed it from coal because they knew it wouldnt be worth it anymore.  Sad really.
