Any plans for a IJN CA tech tree split ?

I was wondering while looking around about the Takao class cruisers, and after seeing the upcoming US CA split, will the IJN CA get their turn ?

 

Because when you think about it, in the IJN CA/CL line, none have the possibilities to be an Anti-Air escort. Even fully specs on AA, they aren't worth it unless the defensive fire is active.

 

Could there be a IJN CA split focused on this idea ? Because when you look about it, you can find some really interesting and existing ships, here's an exemple:

 

The Takao class Maya, the 1944 vers, was pretty much a Anti-air Atago/Takao, one of her turrets was replaced by 2 turrets of 127mm that up their total count to 12 cannons of 127mm that counted as both anti-air and secondary. (Plus the 13 emplacements 3x25mm and 9 simple of 25mm type 96 auto as well)

 

And she still had 4 turrets of 2x203mm as main battery as well as the torpedoes.

 

And as for what either replace, follow or precede the Maya, you can find a lot of other class and altered classes to fit in.

 

To be honest, i just took the Maya because it was a striking exemple of game viable CA wich has already two of her sisterships in it (If you count the ARP Takao), wich would really facilitate her implementation.

 

I really want to hear about this idea and if that's something that could be implemented, anti-air based IJN CA/CL might really be a plus to this game.

 

Pretty please ? x)

Same answer as for every "will X nation get Y ships?" question

 

They had them - sooner or later we surely will get them.

As for now -> obviously not announced, so - just as obviously - noone here will know (or if they know - won't be able to tell) anything about it

The idea of a split could be possible, with the 2 Mogami (155 and 203) occupying the T8 slots. There are some candidates for lower tier (Agano for example at T5 or 6). But I'm not sure that T9 & 10 ships are possibles.

 

So that would be another split line that stops at T8.

 

For the Maya, it could be a nice fit for a T7 premium IJN cruiser, but let's be honest, Anti-air ship is not a role that is really necessary now.

 

You can still post in the suggestion section of the forum, I know you are not the only one who wants Maya in game !!

Without proximity fuses their AA will never be as good as the US, so there is hardly any point. 

Like facts from real life play any role in this game, at best they can just add some flavors, so there is no need to pretend that such a detail can stop or make wargaming put a ship in the game.

Not really, i asked if there was plans for it already or ideas being either worked on or not.

 

I heard about a "Battlecruiser" plan for the IJN but didn't really find anything official so i asked here to get an idea on what's being worked on CA wise for the IJN, since the US and URSS are getting worked on their CA.

 

So even if they can't tell any details on it or says it will happens soon, only the "It's on the to do list" will suffice, and if not, well, proposing something worth thinking about isn't really meaningless.
