Impero as AL Littorio?

Seems like AL Littorio will be based on testing ship Impero.

 

I hope WG knows that Impero is the second batch of Littorio class. Impero and Roma had a different bow, taller, compared to Littorio, to improve sea handling. 

 

Attached, from left to right: Littorio bow, Vittorio Veneto bow, Roma bow (Impero would have had Roma bow).

Or "Impero" was copy paste Roma with SAP ammo and pasta smoke for testing purposes while AL Littorio will be usual copy/paste of a Roma.

Probably used Impero name to not announce another AL collab round just yet, while recipients of such mail are usually confined by NDA to not spoil the beans.

Surely there will be some difference to Roma?

 

Else .. why play Roma anymore just to give up Smoke and SAP ?

Not Azuma.

 

Asama, the Amagi class that was in test together with Impero.

Asama was the codename/cover for the Ragnorak/Ignis Purgatio.

Arashi is the codename/cover for the Okikaze/Harekaze II

Zarya Svobody was the codename/cover for the AL Sovetskaya Rossiya

 

With "Impero" leaked as AL Littorio it's pretty clear that WG is using cover names in the game files to avoid datamined spoilers.

Used to be a usual soviet tactic for obscuring and renaming weapons systems to confuse enemy intelligence.

Cleveland has 6.5s reload while Montpelier has 7s

Cleveland has the standard 2.0 sigma while Montpelier has 2.15

Montpelier has 600 HP more than Cleveland 

 

The rest is the same

Changed to 30s, thanks for spotting the mistake. :)

 

Np, thanks for handling this nice website.

 

Regarding AL Littorio being Roma clone - I think WG seems to retain some level of sanity, as releasing a SAP+smoke BB (a strong contender for pure OPness beyond recognition) as premium would not end good.

 

Tiny hope they will withdraw from this crazy concept for Italian BBs anyway.

At least they weren't testing a number of Kageros to obscure Shikishima was coming, the way the Japanese did with Yamato.
