This might’ve been brought up before, but I haven’t seen it get much attention: in the video about Russian cruisers that WG released just recently (the one that focused on their development) there was a tiny bit of a tease: if you pause the video at the right time, you can see someone working on what’s very clearly a cruiser of the Royal Navy.
In a thread on the NA forums, the user Trainspite posted a picture (above) that showed the cruiser, and then a dev, defklo, later confirmed that yes, she is a variant of the HMS Minotaur, design Z4A.
So, there’s your confirmation and some speculation fuel: HMS Minotaur is going to be in the game, possibly as a normal tech tree ship, and from what we can tell the devs are progressing fairly well on the British cruisers. Maybe they’ll arrive at the same time as German battleships?
