And thus all my hard work and speculation comes to naught! Ah well, that was a fun article to write, and comes with some insights that might make it into the game beyond the regular stats we see here, courtesy of dseehafer on the NA forums and gamemodels3d.
Read about them here, and I’ll add a few of my thoughts below.
I don’t recognize the Tier 6 and 7, they really might be fake, but I’ll try to do some more in-depth reading in a couple days when I have time to dig up some designs that match.
Dmitry Donskoy is definitely Project 65, but with an added set of 180mm guns, probably to make her a bit tougher. Seems good to me.
Overall, the Russian cruisers are all about great guns, but also being terribly easy to spot. I look forward to them! Well, even though I don’t even know if I’ll play them, but Project 65 and Kirov still look nice.
