WoWS ST 0.10.0, new ships.

French Tier VIII battleship Flandre, German Tier X aircraft carrier Max Immelmann and American Tier X cruiser Austin are added for testing.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary and subject to change during testing. Any showcased features may or may not end up on the main server.

French battleship Flandre, Tier VIII

A variant of the Alsace-class battleship with 380-mm guns in three three-gun turrets and adjusted AA guns composition. The ship has good survivability, effective AA defense, and better main caliber accuracy than that of Alsace.

German aircraft carrier Max Immelmann, Tier X

A project of a heavy aircraft carrier based on the class “H” battleship’s hull. Big, well-armored ship with strong AA.

The ship is an analogue of Manfred von Richthofen, but has a different composition of AA guns and carries skip bombers with HE bombs instead of torpedo bombers.

American cruiser Austin, Tier X

A project of a light cruiser (CL-154), developed at the end of World War II. The main armament is represented with the newest 127-mm universal twin guns in 6 turrets. Torpedo armament consists of 2 five-tube launchers.

Austin may fire HE or SAP shells, and though its “Main Battery Reload Booster” consumable has only 1 charge, it lowers reload time by 75% instead of the standard 50%. The ship has effective AA, additionally enhanced by “Defensive AA Fire” in a separate slot from “Hydroacoustic search”.
