Hello and welcome Wargaming have just announced a brand new line of German battlecruiser being added to the game. Starting Tiers III-V are based on the real ships of the Imperial German Navy that participated in World War I. SMS Von der Tann was the first battlecruiser built for the German Kaiserliche Marine, as well as Germany’s first major turbine-powered warship. At the time of her construction, Von der Tann was the fastest dreadnought-type warship afloat, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 27 knots. She was designed in response to the British Invincible class. SMS Moltke was the lead ship of the Moltke-class battlecruisers of the German Imperial Navy, named after the 19th-century German Field Marshal Helmuth von Moltke. Commissioned on 30 September 1911, the ship was the second battlecruiser of the Imperial Navy. Moltke, along with her sister ship Goeben, was an enlarged version of the previous German battlecruiser design, Von der Tann, with increased armor protection and two more main guns in an additional turret. SMS Derfflinger was a battlecruiser of the German Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy) built in the early 1910s during the Anglo-German naval arms race. She was the lead ship of her class of three ships; her sister ships were Lützow and Hindenburg. The Derfflinger-class battlecruisers were larger and featured significant improvements over the previous German battlecruisers, carrying larger guns in a more efficient superfiring arrangement. Derfflinger was armed with a main battery of eight 12 inch guns.The battleship Mackensen was launched in 1917 but not completed. The Mackensen class was the last class of battlecruisers to be built by Germany in World War I. The design initially called for seven ships, but three of them were redesigned as the Ersatz Yorck class.
Of the four ships of the Mackensen class, Mackensen, Graf Spee, and Prinz Eitel Friedrich were launched. The design of the Mackensens was a much improved version of the previous Derfflinger class. The most significant improvement was a new, more powerful 14 inch gun, compared to the 12 inch gun of the earlier ships. The Mackensen-class ships also featured more powerful engines that gave the ships a higher top speed and a significantly greater cruising range. SMS Prinz Heinrich was a unique German armored cruiser built at the turn of the 20th century for the German Kaiserliche Marine, named after Kaiser Wilhelm II’s younger brother Prince Heinrich. In ww1 Prinz Heinrich was used for coastal defense in the North Sea and she participated in the fleet sortie that supported the Raid on Scarborough, Hartlepool and Whitby in December 1914. The Tier VII-X battleships are based on designs developed in the late 1910s, Tier VIII Zieten, Tier IX Prinz Rupprecht, Tier X Schlieffen
The concept of the alternative branch of German battleships rests on short-range combat due to their low concealment, decent secondaries, and small number of main battery guns with a low range of fire.
The ships are also armed with long-range torpedoes. This new branch of German battlecruisers is expected to go into supertest in late august early september and as more information becomes available about their ingame stats I’ll post a video with what we can expect to see from this new line which will be available to everyone being fully researchable like every other tech tree line in the game.
