HMS Belfast Premium Coming Soon

The WoWs ASIA official Facebook page has shown a teaser of an upcoming premium ship: the (presumably) tier 8 British cruiser, HMS Belfast.

As you can see, she’s wearing the camouflage that she has today as a museum ship on the river Thames, in London. I’m not too sure about this, but it looks to me like the in-game version of the ship is her post-war modernization; after WW2, her torpedo tubes and seaplane facilities were removed in order to mount more anti-aircraft guns.

Compare the above picture to a real-life photo of her from the present day:

Strikingly similar, so it’d be interesting to see her in-game as a cruiser lacking torpedoes but having a superior anti-air suite, just like the current American cruisers we have.

An exact release date for her is unknown.
