Anchorage looks pretty interesting. 

Another Smoke cruiser with HE do we really need another Kutzutov/Smolensk but with 10.5km torps on top?

 

I'm more interested in the German ship, didn't get the Mainz cause I'm in a state of not wanting to put cash into the game atm but this one is getting my interest especially the stealth of the thing, also the looks, it isn't an almost copy of the Hipper hull like the Mainz.

tbh Anchorage looks like T8 London so bit intresting.

 

But Munchen she looks very nice, M class light cruiser with modernized AA and etc.

 

Now only 1 thing i really want to see as premium is: T10 Big gun GK, please like please every other line got their small/big gun premiums and there's even gun designs of 450 mm or 480 mm so that big gun GK can be either German Ohio or H-42 like BB so why not WG.

ST 0.9.6, new ships

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Any showcased features may or may not end up on the main server. The final information will be published on our game's website.

 

American cruiser Anchorage, Tier VIII:

Anchorage is a universal heavy cruiser capable of fighting at close- and mid-ranges. The ships has a decent main caliber guns. "Hydroacoustic Search" consumable and torpedo armament allows Anchorage to feel comfortable in close-range combat, and a "Smoke generator" consumable, which is uncharacteristical for American heavy cruisers, will let her avoid enemy's focued fire or take a break in battle.

German cruiser München, Tier VII:

The ship has a good firing range and main battery reload time, as well as brand German HE shells' penetration and effective AP shells. The ship's concept is similar to German Tier VIII cruiser Mainz.

Soviet tier X destroyer DD R-10 was added in the game for testing. The ship is a copy of soviet tier IX destroyer Tashkent in a researchable hull with improved armor and armamament.

In comparison with her prototype, DD R-10 has a higher firing range and turret turn speed, and torpedoes have a higher range, speed and maximum damage, but a slower reload.

 

All formatting from the original source, so I am not responsible. Sorry, if it isn't readable in one of the forum modes. If there are problems please tell me, as I might adjust this later once I have more time.

MORE HE SPAM NOW WITH SMOKE INCLUDED YES !!!! can you make for once a trash american premium? all newish american premiums are good or either OP-somers,ohio,alaska,baltimore,salem and now an american kutuzov but with better survivability parameters? And people still whine about soviet bias when in reality american bias is just a prevalent if not even more

Also that tier 10 Tashkent sounds interesting...guess it is time to put khaba to sleep and remove that failure of a ship and replace it with that one eh?

Being a heavy cruiser it won't be as effective in smoke cause it'll have around 7.5km smoke fire penalty. As somebody says earlier it will be more like London. We don't know the range but I think it won't be high one.

It said 8km, which is better than all the Italian CAs, also has 15.6km gun range so inline with the Baltimore.

 

Only downside compared to the Baltimore is the gun layout being a 50/50 split for and aft and the lack of radar.

Range is 15,6 km with 8 km smoke firing penalty. The first premium in a long time that interests me :)

Range is 15.6 km with 8 km smoke firing penalty also reload is 15.5 ah and plus the ship has T6 AA.

 

tbh only 10.5 km torpedo intrests me more since the smoke and concealment is pretty usable but maybe that will be selling point.

Very interesting pair of ships. Also, is that a M class cruiser that I spy there?

Tashkent at TX? Let me guess, test for exchanging Tashkent at IX into different ship in future and then Tashkent will be steel/coal/free exp ship? Otherwise see no sense here.

Yes, but with 105s instead of 88s. AA is still dogshit.

 

However...

Spoiler

Maximum speed - 36.0 kt. Turning circle radius - 690 m. Rudder shift time – 8.3 s. Surface detectability – 10.8 km. Air detectability – 5.8 km. Detectability after firing main guns in smoke – 4.9 km.

Colour me interested. This is almost Amalfi-levels of maneuverability and sub 10 km concealment.

To be fair, not exactly alone of the tier 7 cruisers in that regard..

 

And I have to agree on balance she sounds very interesting. Of course only time will tell if she lives up to said potential.

Armour will likely be utter garbage, citadelled by stuff like Cheshire HE. And overpenned by most BB...

Similar to Nurnberg according to Wiki (and from what I have on the class I'd agree) so you're going to need to make the most of that agility..

Well, at least it has the maneuverability and concealment.

51 mm belt, 16 mm all around, same turret armor as Nürnberg and possibly turtleback of 35 mm. 

 

I forgot about conning tower of 50 mm to 100 mm.

This is what the game needs, an american kutuzov.

Kutuzov is way more spammy and has 19km range. Anchorage is not even close.

Anchorage looks too strong, it's not a soviet ship.

 

Muchen looks interesting  and unlike all other tier 7 cruisers  hit hard by the IFHE change, this ship can pen 32mm plating.

Muchen could be too strong with that reload.

All in all, she kind of smells like a German Ochakov. Just without the Radar.

 

Which, to be fair, isn't entirely a bad thing.

Reload gives it dpm right inbetween Nürnberg and Mainz.

It is part of the new meta, He/AP will have better pen, plus it will have the special american smoke...
