Looks like there is a new post over on the RU blog detailing the IJN cruiser line from II -> X.

You can find the blog post here (google translate link)

 

If you read the semi-ok translation it looks like what I thought was confirmed, US cruisers will have superior AA for the most part over the IJN. I'm guessing this is the trade off for having torpedo tubes on all the ships in the line bar one. I'm not to sure how I feel about it though since AA cover is one of the touted points of cruisers in the whole teamwork dynamic thing.

 

Personally I have mixed feelings, I really wanted to see Takao in the lineup and I'm a little sad to see her not there and will probably nudge me towards US cruisers instead. Although I do like Senjo and Mogami.

I want my 4 Turret AA upgraded IJN Maya :(

 

 

I know how you fell, I'm sad since there was pictures released of Takao class ships before so I thought she would be in it :(

 

I can only hope they have other plans for her at a later date

I want my Kitakami:playing:

 

K-Kitakami-saaaan?

 

WHERE IS KITAKAMI-SAMA~

 

There are official WG renders of her floating around the net though, with indicators saying she's a tier 10 cruiser.

 

LOL at them comparing Takao with a Train for length..... lol.......

 

It's in the EU blog that they used trains to measure the length of ships because apparently it's something everyone's familiar with and measuring with people like in WoT and WoWP renders just don't cut it anymore.

I... I still can't imagine the size though. I've never seen a train before my entire life since we don't have trains here.

Kitakami..... Such a glass cannon (Powerful torpedoes attack but weak durability)

 

Well there are many Long Sized CAs out there

Dont worry, there are plans for a second IJN cruiser line and  second lines for other classes as well after release but for now,they focus for 1 line  only for each  ship classes in both nations.Takao will probably in the second IJN cruiser line .
