WoT: The Dawn of Industry Event Is Delayed

Short post.

Commanders,
We have an important message.
Due to potential external technical issues, starting the Global Map Dawn of Industry event on January 16 could provide a less-than-comfortable and enjoyable gameplay experience.
Launching a large-scale event when even a single battle may impact the outcome is a really big risk. Possible technical errors may lead to a loss of progress in the event, which, in turn, would affect reward distribution and delivery.
Taking these factors into account, we decided to delay the event until February 13. Please accept our sincere apology for this delay.
We truly appreciate your understanding and patience.

ST, New ships

Todays release.

Japanese battleship Yashima, tier X

Yashima is an alternative project of Yamato, armed with 6 510-mm guns and modernized AA defense. The battleship has shells with high damage and very good penetration, but not the best ballistics. As these shells need to pass through a thick armor to detonate, there will often be over-penetration when lightly armored targets are hit. However, enemy battleships are a perfect target for Yashima.

Hit points — 97200. Plating — 32 mm.

Main battery — 3×2 510 mm.
Firing range — 26.6 km. Dispersion at this range — 272 m.
Sigma — 2.10.
Maximum HE shell damage — 8100. Chance to cause fire — 40%. HE initial velocity — 720 m/s.
Maximum AP shell damage — 19400. AP initial velocity — 720 m/s.
Reload time — 35.0 s.
180 degree turn time — 60.0 s.
