Premium but ONLY attainable via Clan War. It requires a total of 3 flags which you can get by reaching Typhoon league in 3 seasons and winning considerable amounts of battles(17 I think?) each time.

You have to finish personal missions playing clan battles. Just reaching typhoon won't be enough.

Yeah I mentioned that I believe.. Typhoon league Personal mission( in last season) was "Win X number of battles" I think the number was 17

Edit: And yes, you have to personally participate in those battles to complete the task

Sub_Octavian already confirmed that there would be other ways to get Stalingrad besides CW as not everyone plays that mode. He also excluded the possibility to get it through campaigns unlike Shinonome. Now I'm hoping it doesn't get locked behind a "2500 base xp + 50k flooding damage" like the old EU missions.

I expect them to be a lot harder and tbh they should be, regarding the "Ship"... ;)

I'm pretty sure it will be a mindless grind fest that you've never seen one before.

Well, what do we know about the ship?

From the video, it will be a reward ship, not one available to everyone. We know it is more powerful than Battleship Moskva but what does it have?

305mm (12 inch) guns. 3x3 in 2 fore and one aft turret. The Standard configuration.

Decent secondaries. 6x twin turret large secondaries, likely 5 or 6 inch rounds. Lots of lesser guns that could be for AA as well. I suspect this one will be a no-fly zone.

Radar linked to AA, so that means Radar and DFAA. It's Tier X so has a Heal as well, that gives 4x consumables. It has a Crane for Aircraft, so you likely get the Spotter/Fighter option as well. You may also have an option for Hydro, but I doubt it. The radar is also for 'Fighter Direction', keep that in mind.

273.6m long, means it's a monster.

According to Wikipedia, it has

  • 3 × triple 305 mm (12.0 in) guns
  • 6 × twin 130 mm (5.1 in) guns
  • 6 × quadruple 45-millimeter (1.8 in) guns
  • 10 × quadruple 25-millimeter (0.98 in) guns

To top it off, 1x 3 Torpedo launcher.

180mm Belt armour, 50mm Upper Deck and 70mm Mid Deck Keep in mind, it's Welded armour, not riveted. This may affect the armour strength.

We know it's the 1951 Design, so Post War. This also means the speed will be 35.5 knots.

Holy Carp! This thing is a monster! It's fast, hits like a battleship, has more secondaries than some battleships and has the consumable bells and whistles.

Now, i suspect it may be hampered by turret rotation speed, 35 seconds and 20 second reload seems reasonable for it's shell size. It may also have a decently slow rudder shift.

That said, does it matter? 

What else has that gun size? Bellepheron, Wyoming, Kawachi, Kaiser, Konig. All low tier Battleships. This thing has those level guns on a cruiser. 

Yeah, it's a damn nice reward.

Well as a reward ship seems to be a waste of WG resources. After all the development cost involved and finally making it into a reward ship...to me it makes no business sense "That does not compute $$$".

Maybe they should set a criteria like a minimum of 1,500 battles in CA T8 above,1mil fxp and 2k doubloons? In that way you might not get newbies in that ship and at the same time making some profit if players do decide to pay for XP conversion to get Leningrad earlier.

I wonder will they include emblem achievement like the one below as one of the requirements

To even achieve it based on server statistics you got to be unicum in the 25% bracket and it seem like using Hindenburg will be more likely achievable
