ST 0.9.7, American battleships

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. The final information will be published on our game's website.

 

Researchable American battleships Kansas VIII, Minnesota IX, Vermont X, and Tier VII American battleship Florida will be added to the game in the upcoming supertest session.

Battleships of the new sub-branch have devastating salvos (e.g. Vermont X has 12 18" guns) but a long main battery reload time, low speed, and relatively light armor. 

Florida is a representative of the same battleships sub-class as Champagne and Slava: she has good accuracy, but weak armor and a relatively high-sitting citadel
