Hello Forumers, 

 

There is no reason why wouldn't this ship be the most powerful ship ever designed by the Soviet Navy and we should expect this ship to be at the top of the Russian tech tree and if WG didn't and came out with other proposals than it would be unhistorical and the game become lost from reality, for example to what they did in WoT with the Waffentrager Auf E-100.

 

To give you more facts about this ship, It was designed to be like the Iowa and North Carolina Class of Modern Battleships carrying 9x 16 inch Main Battery guns. It would have been more powerful than the Bismarck and Italian Roma so to counter this the Kriegsmarine then came up with the H-Class Battleship design proposals. If WG proceeded to take the Historical path base on this suggestion then Sovetsky Soyuz would have been the weakest tier 10 Battleship in comparison to the A-150 Super Yamato, USS Montana, and H-44. Struggling already against the considerably tier 9 IJN Yamato.

For some Brief Infomation:

Main Belt: 375~425mm / Deck armour: 152~102mm

Main Armament: 9 406mm L/50 guns(3x3), 12 152mm L/57 guns(2x6), 8 100 L/56 AA guns, 32 37mm AA guns

Speed: 29 knots

 

Interesting enough one of it's modification (Type 24) is also to be fitted with Anti-Ship missile, lets see if that get implemented. Also apparently there's a plan to use 457mm guns (18 Inch guns), would be cool to see those as well.

its probably going to be like an IS-4 where it has two guns but in this, its gonna be its 16 inch guns as def set and 18 inch guns for its upgrade if does put in since I believe the RUdevs are currently raiding the shit out of their National Archives as is Japan in theirs alongside the US guys for moar bottlesheep designs hidden away.

 

but speaking of which, Yamato atm is the current "supreme flagship" in the IJN battleships and I'm expecting her little sister to be a reward ship.

lol  A-150 is not a little sister she has 20 inch guns, way larger caliber than the Yamato's 18 inch. :)

WG never give out T10 unfortunately. I think a T7 ship would be more likely. Ship like the Atlanta would be appropriate.

Speaking of large caliber guns, the largest cannon ever used in combat is mounted on a Railway gun known as Schwerer Gustav, 31 inch Kannone of Fatherland!

Yes, WG did give out tier 10 vehicles as Clan War Rewards for example the Fail Lowe, Object 907, and M60 Patton in WoT.

They are practically the same though, I don't see much point of featuring ships that are mostly identical.

Historically WG have used tier 5/6 vehicles as the player gifts...

So look lower down the tree than Atlanta, Kitikami etc for possibilities (and no I don't know at this stage either)

IJN Kitakami might be our limited time pre order package like the mutant M6A2E1 in WoT.

Doubt it, it's already in the tree. I have a suspicion which ship will be the pre order.

I'd say, For example the HMS Repulse is a good one. Weaker armament than the Renown but still useful.

Or may be the Heavily Modified USS West Virginia(BB-48)(As a T8). It's much slower than the South Dakota and the North Carolina but still packed with big 16 inch guns with Great AA and secondary.

Imperator Nikolai I is already a premium ship

Please do look at the date the post was posted. That was posted before Imperator Nikolai was even in game.
