since she is the reward for the new collection.

And we all know how reward ships ended.

The reward for collecting the sections is the "Wings", "Stars", "Stars and Stripes" patches and 5 expendable "Stars 'n Stripes" camouflages, for the entire collection - Oklahoma with the "Military" permanent camouflage.

Damn that Shiki camo is nice.

And I think I'm more likely to use the flags I've got from collections then I am Oklahoma.

It will be a free premium, so it's destined to be lackluster.

But it offers freemium ship for the FTP crowd and that is a good thing.

Graf Spee was decent. Duke of York was only “bad” because the comparable KGV was already one of the most powerful BBs at its tier back then. While the odds are that Oklahoma will be a mediocre to poor ship, it isn’t a guarantee.

Whether or not Oklahoma will play well remains to be seen, but I think the perma camo is god-awful.

She belongs in dark gray 5D all over, or better yet the BuShips Measure 1 scheme Arizona has.

@Hapa_Fodder, has Lesta ever considered outright selling or  missions for classic historical camo schemes? I'd put Texas, WV '41, NC, and Massachusetts in Measure 1 in a heartbeat. The Germans and Brits had some pretty classy standard schemes, too.

Well Lesta wouldn't be the one making that decision.

As for selling historic camo, this has been a comment for some time, typically the base camo that comes with a ship is at least one of their historical camo schemes.

Completely different classes. Look at the gun layouts.

Fixed that one for you.

Different classes. 40 second reload. Worse pen than New York.

Can you guys please sell the Bismarck's Baltic Camoflauge the one with the strips on the superstructure? It was only available for the Sam the Cat event.

They fixed that. 

Keep in mind it's waaaay better armored than the USS NY/TX.

The fact that we still haven’t seen a BB hit the game without a heal, even with WG going deep into the gimmick box with other classes, tells you everything that you need to know about the viability of Duke of York’s original incarnation.

I would more say that a 32mm BritBB was never going to be a good candidate for a heal-less bb.
Compared to say the Amagi which can avoid damage via non-pens on its plating and wiggle a fair amount to dodge.

It was too early a call for a limited time test ( they needed to release it in time for X-mas/NY afterall), more time to figure it out would've likely given reams more insight.

any ships is good if the captain is able to use her right.

Perhaps wrt the main armor belt you'd be correct.  But the bow/stern/deck plating is 19mm so overall she's as soft as NY/Texas are in-game.

It is a very good thing and I'll be happy to have her.

New York and Texas were the class before and had worse armor and a 5x2 main battery layout.

Oklahoma was the second ship of the Nevada class which were the very first American standard battleships and had a main battery layout of 3-2-2-3. They were very similar to the following Pennsylvania class (Arizona), but had two fewer guns in the main battery.
