ok so my friend is absolute that the bismark will be tier 8 premium aswell as tirpitz and says its in the wiki as a premium ship but i know it will be the tier 8 battleship on the german line so who is right Fact 2 bismark class battleships were made Fact Tirpitz is in game as a premium ship so why would they make 2 of the exact same premium ships thing called placeholders ....

Sure...except that the Bismarck is the name ship of her class. If you notice, the premium ships so far are ships that are not the name ship of her class.

 

It was also established a pretty long time ago, by Wargaming, that the Bismarck is going to be a tier 8 normal ship.

Sims and Atlanta are both lead ships of their class, and that is just the first two that come to mind.  I think the premiums are just singular well known or interesting ships, doesn't matter if they are class leads or not.

 

Bismarck will almost certainly be the tier 8 regular German BB though.

Perhaps I should've made an adjustment.

 

If you're not seeing the lead ship of her class, you can pretty much expect the lead ship to be in the game.

Wonder if Bismarck will actually have any advantage over the Tirpitz to compensate for the fact that the latter has torps and the former doesn't.

She starts with a broken rudder, but has no hitpoints.

Instead she gets sunk by destroying all modules, if required the battle timer will be automatically expanded.

I have no idea about Sims, but Atlanta is a cruiser designed for a dedicated role which is to provide AA for the fleet. That's why she's being armed with 127mm. DP gun while all other regular light cruiser of the same era are armed with 152-155mm(Cleveland for example). meaning that Atlanta can't played the same way as you play another. Therefore she shouldn't be included in the tech tree.

I think you mean torpedoes will only destroy the rudder and do no HP damage.... or the ability to 1 hit kill British ships LOL

 

But seriously, the Bismarck in wiki is, indeed, currently a placeholder.
