Just saw a clip on YouTube about the SNS Emden and it was pre interesting to watch.  I think that this would be a pretty neat ship to turn into a coal ship, XP or even a doubloon tier 3 or 4 crusier.  Torps, decent sized guns, and smoke to take the place of the fake funnel... How about it WG?

This ship is in the game already, and has been for a long time. If you didn't know that and you want it, it's available in the cash shop: https://na.wargaming.net/shop/wows/vehicles/6764/

Otherwise, I guess you mean you'd like an alternative version of it along the lines of what you described? The Emden I'm still hoping for is the 1920s version, though I suppose they'd have to give it a different name. Or maybe name her Emden 1925:

I think the SMS Emden would do pretty darn well as a tier 2 premium if it was ever introduced...oh wait :Smile_trollface:

I'm thinking Tier 2.  No torps.  Meh guns that fire quickly.  And, we'll skip the smoke but give it the fake funnel.  Something like this:

And, I'm thinking a release date of January 2016 would be appropriate.

Yeah, they really ought to put this one out...   I seem to recall a lot more than 105 battles.  Did they reset it?

This picture; is this supposed to be the ship that's in the loading screen graphic when Trap loads?

Also make sure it has the wrong German flag too

I like how they made a Kaiserliche Marine flag for the Jutland event... but still can't be bothered to put it on the appropriate German ships. :Smile_facepalm:

They had no problems getting the flags right for the Soviet and Imperial Russian navies.

I don't care about historical accuracy, I just know the ship matches pictures of Settsu.

That’s fine, I just always thought it looked like the wrecked Emden; guess I’ll need to take a closer look next time I get Trap.
