Excited for the hizen and especially Strasbourg. Dunkerque is one of my favorite premiums and having a tier 7 would be great

30 second reload in the preliminary while some "obese" ships get 40 second derps.  :Smile_trollface:

If there is anything I have learned from the Pommern is more guns are better. Plymouth and Hizen seem really interesting.

14.3km on Plymouth's guns, oof. Pretty much locks her into the range mod. Or you play a dangerous game of milking the bloom limit and hope you can kill your target quick enough to go dark from more distant ships. Considering the general meta of T10 though I think the range mod will be the way to go. She only has .3km range over the Mysore.

 

Also still no decent Captain trainer for RN CLs outside of Exeter and her XP earnings are hamstrung by tier.

I must say that I'm actually not surprised to see Z-44. When Z-35, a gunboat variant of German DD's, was released a while ago, I had a hunch that we might see an opposite, a torpboat variant, someday. Well, it looks like Z-44 seems to be just that. However, I'm not sure what to make of her lack of hydro, TBH. :Smile_hiding:

Mysore is pretty cool to have in game. Glad to see more representation in the Commonwealth TT but I would have bet dollars to donuts that the first INS premium would have been Delhi.

Really, none of these ships "move the needle" for me. 

 

Strassburg -- under-armored, eight small inaccurate guns, over-rated main battery booster gimmick. 

Hizen -- more big gun spam, vaguely in the vein of the new USN BBs. 

Z-44 -- looks notably worse than the existing German DDs, not just different, questionable torpedo focus, horrible AA with no DP main batteries at tier IX.  I guess it's supposed to fit in the silly new "turn off your AA" meta?  

Mysore -- I already have Perth.  

 

Plymouth -- well, OK, Plymouth at least looks like it has a hell of a tookbox to bring to the job site, with smoke, radar, hydro, and repair party all available at once.

I SERIOUSLY hope that strasbourg dont get dunkerque anemic gun accuracy,its what killed the ship for me.

No need for Hizen if you have Musashi. I'd rather have the nine 460mm guns with 26 sec reload. Mush is a beastly tank. The Strassbourg will make a tasty snack for the Lyon.

By the looks of the premium icon (gold and white) the Plymouth is likely going to be a coal ship

Why would you post a feedback thread when Hapa already posted one.....sort if odd.

I think the idea was to point people to the thread Hapa created, not create a separate discussion here.
