Judging by the camo, it might be a premium ship.
It will be the premium ship. Due to the turret-arrangement, it’s the odd one out of the bunch, which means it gets moved out of the regular tree.
Technically, Richelieu is the odd one out. The entire line up until this point has had majority firepower that can only be brought to bare by showing broadside. Even the tier 9, the Alsace has an emphasis on this with it’s traditional three turret placement and I strongly suspect the tier 10 will be the same as Alsace.
But yes, this will be a premium. It would be fool-hardy for wargaming to not have the more renowned vessel in the line.
Technically they could make it a side-grade. Two alternative T8s.
You mean like Scharnhorst?
Yes indeed, techtree ships do not get good looking camos.
Shiny and Gene are very very different, and Shiny is a pertty fun ship to play with. But Gas and Rich have the same gun. Based on the data and layout of the turrents, it seems that Gas is weaker than Rich
