In this ultimate heavyweight battle, there can be only one winner. Representing Team Godzilla, wearing blue and weighing 41,217 tons is the Japanese battleship Amagi. In the orange corner, representing Team Kong and weighing 37,484 tons is USS North Carolina battleship. Both teams will come with unique movie-inspired permanent camouflages, but also with their own consumable camouflages, patches, flags, and more. On the console side, World of Warship: Legends players who choose Godzilla will have a unique battleship by the name of Heat Ray while the Kong fans will have a great counterpart in Primal, a battleship representing the creature’s might. All that will be offered together with the accompanying commanders, consumable camouflages, patches, flags and more.
