Gneisenau is not Gneisenau

I would like to inform that the ship identified as the German tier VII Battleship Gneisenau is not Gneisenau. Gneisenau was virtually identical to Scharnhorst with three triple turrets (two fore, 1 aft) with 280mm guns.  The ship which is presented here as Gneisenau looks just like Bismarck with twin 380mm turrets and torpedo tubes which would actually make this ship more like the Tirpitz than Gneisenau.

It's the Gneisenau-class. Not specifically the Gneisenau. It resembles what Gneisenau and Scharnhorst might have looked like if they had been modernized/improved as planned. It doesn't have a 283 mm option to avoid having another Mogami-esque ship.

We know. We've already had dozens of threads about this. Gneisenau in game includes the planned upgrade to 6x 15" that was started but never finished.

After 300 posts about this, who would have guessed? Even the in-game description of the ship states it's a modernization of the original Gneisenau, but no one reads that anyway...

It only took you 5 weeks after release of the KM BBs to come up with this gem?
