Did you even read the page that you linked?

 

"Completed in May 1938, the ship was armed with a main battery of nine 28 cm (11 in) C/34 guns in three triple turrets, though there were plans to replace these weapons with six 38 cm (15 in) SK C/34 guns in twin turrets."

The devs wanted to add the sisterships to the game, but wouldve thought that being both the same would be boring, so they outfitted Gneisenau as how he would've been had things during the war went to their plans, with the 15" guns that were originally planned for, when the turrets & guns were manufactured.

 

Also, another reason for the difference is that in the game, Scharnhorst is a premium ship, so it has to be different, so they made it orginal & upgraded Gneisenau....

 

You will find that this game has a few "what if" ships, ships that never made it off the drawing board, or modifications that never happened, it all adds to the diversity of the game, & from historical sense, see how the planned ships/modifications would work...

 

They are commonly called "paper ships" as they were never built, & it can be quite fun to test out these ships & designs against the real ships that were built.

I hope this explains the difference in Gneisenau & othr ships for you :)

 

So, have fun playing

Nope this is intentional, dev team implemented the twin-mount 380mm gun turret on the ship to maintain German battleship line's uniqueness from tier 6 up to tier 10.

The premium battleships tier 7 Scharhorst is using triple-mount 283mm gun turret.

 

This is invalid error.

Was brought up when the German BB line was announced,with lots of complaints from players.WG thought it would be frustrating for players to have the original turrets so made the Gneis with its planned upgrade.
