Is there any ships that have weird gimmick but people do not know commonly?

like Tachibana's AP won't bounce at all time because it has weirdest AP richochet angle?

Hold up. Where did you get this screenshot? Is this photoshopped? This is a Dido-class! This isn't even in testing.

Yeah, that fact is kinda sad.

That game even has Agincourt! AND RTS CVs!

That was a prompt reply, thanks. Hopefully WoWS will get a dido-class one day. AS for ships with weird gimmicks I don't really know. People alwyas seem to forget about the Japanese BBs with torps, they always seem to catch players by surprise. heck I've even had to remind clan-mates playing the boats to use the torps because they forgot

Most gimmicks are usually known well by most players because WG openly advertise about them. Tachibana's gimmick isn't known much because she's a T2 or T4 ship.

Arkansas Beta has all 6 Upgrade Slots iirc.

@Paladinum Oh yeah, I forgot about Arkansas.

 

btw, These ships also came from Blitz. USS West Virginia 1944, Hybrid carrier Ise, Agincourt, and Maya

Ise and Maya, I hope someday they will introduce into WoWs (because I'm not a fan of mobile games).

Maya 1943: a rare Japanese cruiser with historically monstrous AA (~200% the number of AA mounts compare to Takao)

Agincourt: 40s reload sealclubber :Smile_trollface:

Dido (5x2 133) : either solid contender of Flint/Atlanta or mediocre boat

CARNIVAL DA YO! Maya's AA would be the best. Because it would be firing Pianos. Exploding Pianos. 

Also, dildo-class. *smirks*

German's 1/4 HE pen. I have seen quite a lot of players asking if IFHE is necessary for let's say Nurnberg.

The next one is not a gimmick, but is still something weird that not many players know about. British BBs are prone to take citadel hits from stern even before the citadel nerf.

A lot of premiums can be considered “weird” because they play differently to the main line. Or don’t fit in with the expected play style of the type.

Such as Graf Spee, which to this day is weird for a T6 CA, not a BB and not quite a CA.

And some ships which could be weird, but have been around so long, and have had other ships added so they are not as weird anymore.

Such as Perth, Haida and Huanghe, with their creeping smoke.

Nelson could be considered weird, with her forward gun placement and uber heal.

Sharnhorst could be considered weird with relatively small guns, torpedos and speed.

Atlanta and Flint could be considered weird with their DD caliber guns on a cruiser.

And Friesland could be considered weird as it doesn’t have torpedos.

Depends what you call weird.

Will WoWs Blitz be also getting subs?

Ships with Identity Crisis:
Cruisers with Destroyer caliber guns
Cruisers with Battleship caliber guns
Cruisers with a Flat Top (Blitz)
Battleships with a Flat Top (Blitz)
*Submarines with Aviation Hanger (Unconfirmed)

What's next, surface ships will submerge like the Flying Dutchman.

@Work_ln_Progress Nice screenshots.
2nd question, do you have WoWs Legend? Is there ships not seen on both PC and Mobile? (Other than console version has no CV)

WoWS Legend wiki shows that there's no new ship than the PC version. Highest tier is 8.

At least WoWS Blitz has RTS CVs

Yeah it depends on what is defined as "weird".

Like just to add on:

Indomitable can be classified as weird as it is the only CV so far without torpedo bombers.

Harekaze with its 3 weapon option can be considered weird, with the weirdness emphasised by one of the options being USN guns on an IJN hull, plus it is the only ship in the game to use those guns as the main battery.

Monaghan can be considered weird for having an unusual 2nd hull option with TRB.

Asashio can be considered weird for its unique deepwater torps that can only hit BBs and CVs.

Kidd for being a Fletcher that gives up 50% of its torpedo power in exhange for being pushed down a tier and getting a heal.

Mutsu for being a BB with torpedoes in single launchers.

Mikasa for being the only BB at Tier 2.

There are probably more weird ships that I missed.

But if you mean unusual ships like the Ise in WoWs: Blitz, then there are none.

While boasting one of the strongest armoured bows in game, the T5 Soviet tech-tree battleship Pytor Velikiy has her 38-mm citadel roof exposed around her turrent X. So it is theoretically possible to citadel her with battleship HEs, Yorck's HE and potentially Italian SAP shells.

Does this count?

The Soviet T9 cruiser Dmitri Donskoi seems to be the only (at least tech tree?) Soviet cruiser, bar the lower tier protected cruisers, with a "spaced" armour scheme (100-mm belt+45-mm internal bulkhead+ 45-mm citadel bulkhead) that fully covers her citadel on her freeboard.

Unlike Nelson and Izumo that share her unique configuration, Soviet T8 premium battleship Lenin's superfiring B turrent can rotate 360 degrees according to LWM.

A list of historically 'unique' (aka 'weird') ships that I know of, besides what were listed in this thread already and what are already in the game:

+ At least 3 members of Fletcher-class once got aircraft catapults, later removed, though I'm not sure what were replaced for the catapults. This makes Fletcher-class very diverse and have potential for more Fletcher premiums; 

+ Dido-class themselves have 3 main armament setups I know of: 5x2 133, 4x2 133 and 5x2 102. IIRC there is also a 4x2 102, but I am not sure;

+ A LOT of RN DDs get different armament than you guys may be familiar with, e.g.: many of the 'flotilla leaders' have 1 more main gun, some L/M-class have 4x2 102 mm instead of 3x2 120 mm, and more. This is an interesting concept for a RN 'flotilla leader' line;

+ German Spähkreuzer 1938: 3x2 150 mm guns, 2x5 torp tubes, and an insane displacement of 5700 ton (as heavy as most T4/5 cruisers in game, and possibly Harugumo). The name says "scout cruiser", but I'd be very pissed if this design ends up as a cruiser. The 1940 version has even more insane displacement (7500 ton) and features a catapult, which I have no problem seeing WG putting as a cruiser. A very over-torpedoed cruiser. IMPORTANT NOTE: at least one ship was laid down before the war started;

+ Ooyodo-class: poorly armed for a cruiser and has no torp albeit being a Japanese cruiser;

+ Italian Impetuoso-class: from what I know, imagine Gearing-class but every type of armament is less in quantity. Why is this weird? Too few armament for a large hull;

+ Spanish Oquendo-class: confusing history and armament;

+ Dutch "cruiser" Jacob van Heemskerck (1939): sister ship of Tromp, featuring 5x2 102 mm DP guns (British made) and no torpedo. Her sister carries 3x2 150 mm guns and 2x3 torp tubes. While Tromp is a vanilla low tier cruiser, Heemskerck is a candidate of a premium EU DD;

 

@S0und_Theif if you want to talk about new tech trees, we can discuss using the forum's private message.

1. Murmansk is Russian Omaha, by all means her gun were totaly Identical. but Murmansk spew Stalinium shell, which almost identical (Same muzzle velocity, same damage, 100gr heavier shell - totaly ignorable) except  for 1 stats : Krupp

Murmansk have around half more  Krupp value compared to Omaha, leading to overall 50% better penetration for Stalinium blessed shell. Omaha Penetration at 14km is 67mm, while Murmansk is 112mm . at 5km, Omaha can pen 156mm, while Murmansk can pen 237mm.

Krupp is hidden Balancer value to adjust Penetration. and All Russian shell krupp value is highest, (while German is lowest) - because..................................... uhm gulag*

 

2. Zao gun, use DD dispersion curve instead of Cruiser. also  since all IJN Heavy Cruiser got buffed with Zao gun characteristics, all IJN CA enjoy it all the same as it was nation traits now, (however idk about if CL (Yahagi) have that trait too)

3. Izumo is used to be the worst T9 BB, now its one of the Best. But impresion and the scar of the shittiest still linger

4. Ship without Long range AA (some IJN DD for example), have no Flak

5. All Russian Battleship Dispersion curve is advertised as Great at long range, but worse at Long range. - a False advertisement. Its consistently accurate at long range too - . Why ? Historical accuracy ofc

6. Kiev have 1 Secondary gun, whats Better than 1 secondary gun on DD ? 5 secondary Gun on DD ofc ! and Umikaze have it

7. Thunderer use Graf spee Dispersion curve

8. Proving once again why Russian superior, bearing the name of glorrius leader of Soviets. Stalingard shell have unique magical gimmicks. She have 34mm Fuse arming treshold which make Her shell less overpen as it have same equivalent tresshold as other 203mm Cruiser - despite way Bigger in caliber. also it have better AP normalization angle which is around half Des Moines Shell performance.

to put it simply : Her shell wont overpens (If 203mm CA not overpen, so is Stalin shell), and the magical autobounce can pen at surprising angle almost as good as Des Moines.

Why do you think? Because they want to tempt current PC users to Blitz obviously. If Blitz is just a copy and paste from the PC game then there won't be nearly as many PC players taking up Blitz.
