Some Reddit topics say this will be a Tier IX warship, but according to the stats in the Russian page, it will be available at Tier X.

Confirmed it will be a Tier X warship, but no details if this will be a Premium or Regular warship.

  1. It seems that Wargaming is running out of new ships so they have to resort to launching sister ships by copy pasting existing ships in order to introduce “new” ships..

      1. Asashio, Super Akizuki? Maybe finish the IJN gunboat line first… Ooyodo, Agano, Tone? Hiei? Hiyou? Akagi? Chitose? Or balance the old, IJN and USN, lines to be on par with KM, RN and Soviets for competitive. Fix IJN torps to not be shit?
