Interesting.

 

Looks like Tirpitz is the Premium Version after all judging from the camo.

Ehh, nothing I haven't seen before. :)

 

Although for those with knowledge of the Royal Australian Navy's history might recognise the Dresden's sister ship, The Emden.

Commerce raider best raider? There are some crazy stories attached to some of those WWI commerce raiders operating in the Indian Ocean. Emden would make a nice premium actually, give it the fake forth funnel and youve got something unique enough to stand out.

I don't ever drive BB's but I'll happily spend money on the Bismarck just so I can look at it in my port.

I must be crazy.:playing:

Not sure what WG are going to do about the Bismark and Tirpitz debate, my guess being they may well play it safe and have the Bismark as standard ship because she is the namesake and Tirpitz as the premium. Even though Tirpitz was the better ship, they may do as they did with the Wyoming class (upgraded Wyoming is actually Arkansas WW2 config), giving the Bismark an upgrade that was actually that of her sister, who knows? A Bismark Premium would however sell better than Tirpitz and make things easier upgrade wise

It could go either way. They have already done giving various hulls to represent the sister ships, e.g Last hull upgrade for the Kongo is actually the Hiei not the 122x  25mm AA gun bristling Kongo(though I could see why).

But my bet is that they'll make the Brismarck a prem for some easy $$dosh$$.

Still not seeing any Bismarck or Tirpitz.... Perhaps they are only seen on test servers

WG announced some time back that Bismark was to be premium. Not sure if that is still the case

The mentioning in the patch notes is purely there so that players don't jump up and down if they run into them.

That is only possible if a dev decides to test the waters (or a "press" account is created with all the ships) on this cluster.
