American cruiser Anchorage, Tier VIII:

Anchorage is a universal heavy cruiser capable of fighting at close- and mid-ranges. The ships has a decent main caliber guns. “Hydroacoustic Search” consumable and torpedo armament allows Anchorage to feel comfortable in close-range combat, and a “Smoke generator” consumable, which is uncharacteristical for American heavy cruisers, will let her avoid enemy’s focued fire or take a break in battle.

German cruiser München, Tier VII:

The ship has a good firing range and main battery reload time, as well as brand German HE shells’ penetration and effective AP shells. The ship’s concept is similar to German Tier VIII cruiser Mainz.

Soviet tier X destroyer DD R-10 was added in the game for testing. The ship is a copy of soviet tier IX destroyer Tashkent in a researchable hull with improved armor and armament.

In comparison with her prototype, DD R-10 has a higher firing range and turret turn speed, and torpedoes have a higher range, speed and maximum damage, but a slower reload.
