As there on Globalmodels3d (GM3D) i guess I'm not braking my NDA

https://gamemodels3d.com/games/worldofwarships/vehicles/pass106

So here are some teaser pictures of the new Submarines.

 

Interesting point according to GM3D there are no searchable modules on the Subs. Of cause this may be just because of testing and development.

 

As always i wont post the stats as that detracts from the work GM3D have done

 

Enjoy

Spoiler

How about the M1 class with 12inch 30cm guns.. Ok she did not work as she could only be loaded while surfaced and took 3 mins but.......

New type of kamikaze perhaps? Amazingly this was NOT a Japanese invention.:Smile_great:

 

Just goes to prove that you don't necessarily need to be an American. Anybody can be daft a f*ck if they reeeally wanted to.:Smile_honoring:

 

This particular submarine specimen was, of course, a part of the mighty and glorious Finnish Navy (surface fleet shown below). :Smile_izmena:

I've read about several occasions where destroyers got sunk, and depth charges going off, resulting in less survivors.

I wonder if the German Submarines get the Rotor Kite Scout Planes ^^

 

But I am also somewhat Interested at the Submarine Tiers.

I wonder if they will go with the same as CV and make em only every Second Tier.

 

Germany had 4 Notable Submarines Classes.

 

Classes II, VII, IX and XXI

So if they go with the T4-6-8-10 Variant. They would likely end up with each Variant taking 1 Spot.

 

albeit I guess they could go for Full Tiers if they used the Variants.

 

T10 XXI which was a Submarine that would Operate entirely Submerged and be very fast Submerged.

T9 IXC/40 which had Improved Engines and Speed on the Surface.

T8 IXD2 basicly the Base Class later in the War.

T7 IXC first Variant of an Ocean Capable Submarine in the German Navy.

T6 VIIC/41 Upgraded VII Class

T5 VIIC the Work Horse of the German Submarine Fleet

T4 VIIB  the Submarine Deployed in between the Wars.

T3 VIIA the First Post WW1 Submarine in the German Fleet

T2 IIB the German Coastal Submarine which they got from Upgrading WW1 Subs.

 

 

I am Fairly Interested in how they will handle as well.

 

The XXI if they Implement it Historically Accurate. Would be mostly Submerged and if at all only Surface slightly with the upper Part of the Tower. As it was Designed to Stay Submerged for most Part.

The IX Class might get a Single 10.5cm Secondary Turret atop xD

Oh yeah, those babies were pretty much the only "real" warships we had at the time. They also had a decent AA suite of 4*40mm Bofors and 8*20mm Madsens (the 105mm's were also dual-purpose of course) and so the ships were used extensively as floating AA batteries in defense of the capital and the town of Turku (the former "old" capital) amongst other duties. Too bad the remaining ship was not preserved for posterity, would have been awesome.:Smile_Default:

 

Their most significant contribution during the war however was due to acting as deterrent against the Soviet battleships Marat and Oktiabiskaya Revolutiya (yes the one we have in the game) by preventing them from undertaking bombardments of the Finnish Capital and coastal cities, they did sortie out once or twice but were forced to retreat each time without accomplishing much. The Bofors 254mm guns in these boats had the same range than Russian 305mm, smaller shell but could fire twice as fast and were much more accurate with good armor penetration characteristics. Of course, they could not match them on open waters but in the coastal waters and firing from hidden positions they could hold their own, Originally 3 were planned, but only 2 were actually built.:cap_old:

 

Of course, to be perfectly honest the fact(s) that the entire Gulf of Finland was mined from coast to coast to such an extent that it was hardly possible to exit Kronstadt harbor without running into one and that Marat was also sunk into the harbor by German Stukas might also have had something to do with hindering their movement. :Smile_great:
