I made a quick search and find out that it has been nearly one year ago when Brandenburg was first mentioned as a test ship (July 6th 2020).

To go off topic a bit, I have just observed this week that depth charge throwers are added to many ships (for example Soviet CLs from Kotovsky to Alexander Nevsky; Kotovsky to Dmitri have depth charge throwers added to their quarterdecks while Alexander has anti-submarine rockets added in front of her front turrets), and models of depth charges are added to the stern depth charge racks of many destroyers and some cruisers.

That ship looks sexy!
305, Bismarck Hull, Odin HP so it's a weaker Tirpitz?
With those stats ... it's going to be probably dockyard event.

So what's left for German to get another Dockyard event , might be finally a Cruiser line split to get for real CL or BB/Battle Cruiser split , this one look too weak as a BB and too strong as a Cruiser ( if the hull armor remain as such of the Bismarck

Maybe they are going to do a BB split and give a line of German Battle cruisers separate from Battleships. Example being Gneisenau is a battle cruiser (Scharnorst, Odin and Pommern too). Well I have my fingers crossed it's a BB split line.

It is a Brandenburg!

The ship that WG only mention by name and no model / spec 1 year ago?

Do you have specs? Are they allowed to view? What tier?

 

Judging from the photo, a Bismarck / Tirpitz with 350 mm guns.

It is kind of based on a thread I made back then. Where if German battleships mount smaller guns in triple mount and bigger guns in twin mount.

Currently (as of June 2021), 3 are represented (4 if special battleship Hannover is considered).

FDG (Twin 406 / 420) <-> Pommern (Triple 380)
Gneisenau (Twin 380) <-> Scharnhorst (Triple 283) / Odin (Triple 305)
Bismarck (Twin 380) <-> Brandenberg (Triple 305? or 350?)
Hannover (Twin 483) <-> GK (Triple 406 / 420)

Another confused ship joining the line of ships that can't decide whether it's a BB or a CA.
On one hand we the Scharnhorst and Odin which are BB that think they are CA.
On the other we have the Graf Spee, Agir and the Siegfried which are CA that are armed like BB.
And now we have this Bradenberg wanting to join this exclusive club.

Pretty sure the 28s reload (as opposed to the 26s on Bismarck) is because 12 guns, even 305, still have a heavier broadside (DPM) than 8 380 mm. 18,5 km range is the same as Agir.

58k HP is "low like Odin"? Odin is like 53k HP.

 

Anyway, amazing find, captain. Now I'm upset because where the heck is the ship's stat Dev Blog, WeeGee???

Oh!

It's 305 mm and not 350 mm at T8. :fish_book:

 

And I though WG has a golden rule (probably) that there shall be no guns smaller than 380 mm for T8 BB's.

Then again, Odin already broke that rule.
