WoWS ST 0.10.2, New ships

British tier VIII cruiser Tiger ’59 and German Tier VII cruiser Weimar were added to the game for testing.

Please note that all information in the development blog is preliminary. Announced adjustments and features may change multiple times during testing.

British cruiser Tiger ’59, tier VIII

One of the last artillery cruisers of the Royal Navy, armed with four 152mm rapid-firing guns in two turrets — the most advanced and powerful multi-purpose guns Britain had in the 1950s. The ship is armed with only AP shells, similar to the researchable British light cruisers, and is equipped with a solid set of consumables: Repair Party, Surveillance Radar, Smoke Generator, and Defensive AA Fire. However, the Tiger lacks torpedo armament. The cruiser stands out for its good maneuverability and small detectability range, but she has a low firing range and weak armor. Due to her arcing ballistics, the Tiger is best suited for firing over islands or out of smokescreens, if the situation permits.

German cruiser Weimar, tier VII

A light cruiser armed with twelve 150mm guns. A variant of the Yorck-class cruiser with modified artillery composition. Weimar’s guns have flat ballistics and a high rate of fire. Thanks to her good armor and the availability of the Hydroacoustic Search consumable, the ship feels most comfortable in short- and medium-range battles. She’s also equipped with the uncommon for German cruisers “Engine Boost” consumable, which increases the maximum speed of the ship by 15%, helping to quickly reach key positions on the map. Also, 12 torpedoes with a range of 6 km will be very useful in close combat.
