I have Thunderer and Alaska, the only ones I was really interested in from the bunch being taken off sale, was looking at the Salem but just wondering what might replace the ships being removed.

Well, WG said the Neustrashimy, Flint, and Black will be added to the coal shop eventually, but I'm sure there will be others too. Most likely some BB since both the Georgia and Thunderer are being removed.

Maybe the T9 Premium Italian BB Marco Polo mentioned in the Dev Blog.

If you have extra stuff looking to be spent, I don't think Salem would disappoint. She's the most "point and click" ship I've played in WoWS. A ton of fun, imo.

Yep.  Salem was my first coal ship.  With the perma-camo that comes included you get T7 operating costs with T10 income.  And it's different enough from Des Memes so it's not just a copy pasta.

I'm holding on to my coal until the new year just to see if Neustrashimy arrives. Gonna put my steel on Sommers and RB points on Paolo Emilio (but waiting on Paolo a bit longer to see if something else arrives in RB).

Salem is an excellent choice @_BlackHawk4_ ! I've had a blast playing her in Ranked, Random, and Coop. You can't go wrong there.

It is, however, enough of copy pasta that you can just use the same captain!

We don't know for certain but these are the ships I''m aware are currently in development copy and pasted from my Reddit Post last week. We know Hizen is the December dockyard, we don't (TMK) know the rest.

Premium Ships

Tier VI Italian Destroyer Leone - Entered Supertest in 0.7.12, on the wiki and dev blog occasionally mentions tweaks.

Tier VI Commonwealth cruiser Mysore https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/65

Tier VII Japanese Battleship (hybrid) Ise https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/84

Tier VII French Battleship Strasbourg https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/65

Tier VIII Pan Asian Destroyer Fen Yang https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/90

Tier VIII Japanese Cruiser (hybrid) Tone https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/84

Tier IX German destroyer Z-44 https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/65

Tier IX Italian Battleship Marco Polo https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/90

Tier IX Japanese Battleship Hizen (December's Dockyard) https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/65

Tier X Commonwealth Destroyer Vampire II https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/90

Tier X British Cruiser Plymouth https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/65

Tier X Russian Destroyer DD R-10 https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/34 and wiki.

Tier X Japanese Cruiser Kitakami https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/46

More nebulous status

Tier VIII German Battleship Brandenburg - Very little information, brief mention at end of https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/45 and Some data-mining got... not very much.

Tier VIII Japanese Destroyer Arashi On the wiki and Flamu's video

Tier VIII Russian Battleship Borodino On the wiki and Flamu's video. - Stuck in limbo.

Tier X German Carrier Werner Voss https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/84 -German Tier X aircraft carrier Werner Voss will be used for the test of skip bombers. This ship is a copy of Manfred von Richthofen, but she carries skip bombers instead of torpedo bombers. This looks more like a ship to test mechanics, not a ship in itself.

Clones

Pan-American Tier II cruiser Almirante Abreu - Albany with unique horn sound! https://blog.worldofwarships.com/blog/83 I think it's the first sub tier V premium ship released since Dreadnought 2 years ago.

Georgia: Pommern might very likely already be Georgia’s replacement, so Georgia might already of had her replacement. If not, then it seems likely that Marco Polo will be a coal ship around the time of RM BBs going live, likely 10.1

Thunderer: Indirectly, Slava replaces Thunderer, even if she’s a different resource and worse in every way, but no T10 premium BBs are in testing as of right now, so no known direct replacement is known

Alaska: Aegir seems like she already replaced Alaska 

Smaland: I’ve got the feeling Vampire II is replacing her

Eu completei 26 etapas da no estaleiro, para obter o HIZEN, mas ele não aparece na minha lista de navios!
Alguém sabe o porque disso?

If the translation is correct.

 

 
"I completed 26 steps at the shipyard to get HIZEN, but it does not appear on my list of ships!
Does anyone know why this is?"

 

Hizen isnt even available yet.

Hizen ainda não está disponível (I hope this is right.)

One can hope it will be Kitakami or Musashi :P

Musashi was OP, but Kitakami would be most welcome; She brings both variety and history to the match maker.

If they announced bringing the Musashi back theyd have a purchase on the ARP yamato from me. But with these ships that are leaving being mostly American it would be strange to bring out other nation ships to replace them.

The Salt.  Don't forget the Salt!

 

Anyways, we can all make guesses for Coal replacements but OP, if you want to keep ahead on the news, you can check the DevBlog.  Stuff comes up there before it hits the game's official news page.

And it clearly states that in red text on the web page! Reading is OP... (I assume it translated correctly.)

Agreed.  That's exactly what I do.  My first coal ship as well and I still use her....served me well in CB last night. 

That said, those little differences actually have a big impact on what it can do.  Salem is much more reliant on team support, but it can survive a bow tank duel much better than DM.

I do highly recommend the ship.

:Smile_teethhappy: kitakami torps go everywhere, the result is complete and utter chaos for everyone. good thing i don't have any ships that'd find a kitakami in battle!

There are no coal cruisers or BBs in tier 6, 7 or 8.  One of those would be nice. 

I agree. It would be nice if there were more options and variety in the mid tiers, as the bulk of the ships for coal are tier 5 or tier 9/10.

And it's not like I'm not enjoying the tier 9/10 coal ships I have, I just think more choices here would be better.

The thing about Salem is she is pretty much a close carbon copy of the Des Moines.  Obviously she has some gimmicks and differences some better and some worse than the Des Moines but the Des Moines is free.  Also I wouldn't think there would be any reason to have both a Des Moines and Salem in your bay so the only reason I would pick up Salem is if never wanted to advance to USN CA line of ships.
