😃Thank you for your comment, it will be added asap.✅

  1. Yo, I am really keen to see the shell parameters ASAP ( weight, drag, Krupp ) to calculate the AP pen.
    When will you be able to update it ?
    Thx, AdalbertSchneider.

  2. Yo, I almost forgot to thank you for this updated article ;) ( ok, I forgot, cause I am a goldfish :P )
    But 1 more question:
    Currently in these patchnotes to 2nd round of PTS, WG claimed, that these 2 "super" BBs should have better fireresistance coeficient.
    Can you somehow datamined it ? ( normal T10s have 49,95% btw... )
    Thx, Schneider

    1. Best I can so is this>>
      Both Satsuma and Hannover have the same buff in burnodes:
      "burnNodes": [
      "burnNodes": [

  3. Hi Joe, will we be able to keep the 21-point-skill commanders of the 2 super-BB after the Grand Battle is over?

    1. Haha, that would be great 😁 The answer is no, sadly they would be withdrawn when Satsuma and Hannover are.

  4. Camo for superships cost 5k gold
