A new sub-branch of Soviet cruisers will be added to the game in the upcoming super test session, with Tier VIII - X ships. The main branch of light cruisers will also be updated.

Tier V cruiser Kirov will become a premium ship and will be replaced in the branch with the new cruiser Kotovsky.

Tier X cruiser Moskva will become a special ship for Coal and will be replaced in the branch with the new cruiser Alexander Nevsky.

Other details about the branch split will be announced later.

Cruisers from the main branch will be armed with 152 - 180 mm guns, while ships of the new sub-branch will have 180 mm guns on Tier VIII cruiser Tallin, and 220 mm guns on the Tier IX and X cruisers Riga and Petropavlovsk.

The main feature of the new cruisers is their effective armor-piercing shells. They have high armor penetration for cruisers, good ballistics, and a short arming threshold, which lowers the number of overpenetrations. These shells will be effective both against cruisers and battleships.

These strengths are offset with an average reload time and special accuracy settings: as range increases, shell dispersion grows faster than with other cruisers. 

Access to the Surveillance Radar consumable also makes them most effective at medium ranges. 

Detailed parameters will be announced shortly. 


Please note that the information in the Development Blog is preliminary and subject to change.

I guess it will be kept and converted into a T10 Special ship.

So grind to and purchase Moskva ASAP to save coal, and purchase Kirov to obtain a free premium when the split happens. In addition one may consider purchasing Shchors back to grind for Tallin.

If you have Moskova, but don't have the perma camo, will WG give the perma camo for free once they convert status?

Since three Baltic countries have strong anti-Russian sentiment, I thought Tallinn and Riga might be renamed, maybe rename after capitals of other CIS members.

For example, Stalinabad (former name of Dushanbe, Tajikistan) or Frunze (former name of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan).

Tallinn is a historical choice as ex-Lutzow has been renamed as Tallinn post war.

Also the name Frunze has already been assigned to a Chapayev-class light cruiser after the famed Boleshevik general Mikhail Frunze.
