Will it be coal or FXP?

Anyone else stoked for the Carnot? 43km with boost, Kremlin shell velocity, Alaska AP penn? Out of all the ships coming out this is the one that looks interesting. I'm also collecting the 305/310mm cruisers so its a must. Hull is resistant to heavy cruisers 203mm guns but is vulnerable to BB's. Conceal is ok at ~15.5km.

Looks like a long range sniper.

I do like sailing at unreasonably fast speeds for my weight class. :cap_horn:

I am a little surprised it doesn't have Main battery Reload Booster, but oh well.

I wish they’d let us know earlier what currency ships are going to be released for. I’m interested in this one too.

I have a good chunk of coal and a coal ship coupon, so here's hoping.

I'm also collecting all the Supercruisers, as they're just generally fun ships for me.  

The speed boost could be good to get out to a flank, but it remains to be seen if the Carnot will offer similar kiting or closing capacity to Henri.  No access to MBRB and no torps to threaten a rush leaves Carnot stripped of a lot of utility.  7 barrels of 305 when nose-in is nothing to sneeze at, but that's not going to win you fights 6 barrels of 305 wouldn't IMHO, particularly at 24s base reload.  

In terms of supercruisers, it's pretty nimble; looks slightly ahead of Azuma/Yoshino.  I don't see Carnot offering anything radically better than those two as a gun platform; maybe it's tankier.

Me too. I picked up Alaska last year and though not quite a super cruiser I bought Salem last month. Those two helped a lot with the ZF-6 missions and are two of my favorite ships. 

Because of the Dalem, buying the Speed Boost Upgrade with a coupon, and some containers to finish up getting the special French commander from a campaign I only have 21k coal. I just bought Friesland to collect so I’m down to 200k Free XP. 

The whole collecting super cruisers has me eyeing Agir next because I’m afraid it’s next on the chopping block along with Yoshimo.  I’m not sure about Moskva yet. I’ve collected a fair amount of DDs and I already got Massa and Georgia before they disappeared.

I can’t remember was Napoli a BB?  I can’t stand the accuracy of Italian BBs. Now I do have a local Italian restaurant named Napolis that makes great food. Lol
