British Tier X cruiser Gibraltar, American Tier IX cruiser Tulsa and French Tier VI aircraft carrier Bearn have been 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. The final information will be published on our game's website.

British cruiser Gibraltar, Tier X

Heavy cruiser with 234-mm main caliber artillery mounted in three four-gun turrets. The ship is equipped only with AP-shells with improved ricochet angles and low fuse delay. The ship's equipment are "Hydroacoustic Search", "Repair Party" and "Smoke Generator" in separate slots.

The ship is most effective at medium and short-range combat due to her powerful AP-shells and her flat-topped ballistics, as well as her smoke-screen firing.
