So it is confirmed that the premium Scharnhorst is coming out sometime after patch 0.5.8

 

SOOO EXCITED

 

I really hope we get to choose between 280mm and 380mm tho, also hope that it comes with torpedos

 

btw does anyone know if its going to be classified as BB or as CA in game

I don't think Scharnhorst will be able to choose between 280mm and 380mm, the ability to change the guns are reserved for regular tech tree Gneisenau iirc..

And it will be a BB ofc :D

Man, I have plans to buy Tirpitz but with the release of Scharnhorst, I'll probably buy it. One question in my mind, what tier is Scharnhorst belong? For me, probably tier 6-7 since her armament is 3x3 280mm guns, and I hope it has torpedoes too like Tirpitz.

Buy both and unleash German AP while barely ever having to worry about citadel hits

 

Hope those 280 get something like 20 second reload. Being able to choose would be nice tho, and everyone is saying it is T7 so I assume it will be. If you can only use 280 then I guess I will have to just use Tirpitz if I wanna see big numbers against BB. 6X380mm does sound a bit underpowered though, unless the dispersion is like ultra tight

Correct

 

It is a T7 premium BB with only the 11" guns as she was fitted with - no upgrades to the 15" 

(This will be available to her sister ship in the tech tree)

This appears to be the German BB style.

 

Smaller calibre guns with good AP - crap HE and able to tank it with better survivability (more hit points?)

 

Oh and devs have said no torpedos (except I guess on premiums it's ok) but it was my understanding that if ships were fitted with the move able hull tubes they would be in the game.

Forgot the 15s reload.

 

I knew someone would say that

 

May as well as add in 100% detonate enemy unless flag was fitted:trollface: even though the torps would have killed the ship anyways, Stalin wants to give his victim some tiny blankets to take home

ANYWAYS back to the Scharnhorst

 

30kts with 14 sec rudder shift and second best HP at tier 7 (lol that armour makes the HP double) 20 second reload and max damage 80100 per salvo that is pretty good. 240300 DPM vs Nagato 191520 DPM vs Colorado 198400 DPM
