Actual ship in game is part of a High School Fleet anime tie in. Wasn't able to find anything regarding Graf Spee or Maximilian von Spee visiting Mt. Fuji. Unless you're referencing the show, in which case... well played.
There was some mention that Wargaming might do a mission unlock for it, as apparently they did something like that for one of the Arpeggio of Blue Steel tie in that I wasn't around for.
So I've been playing Fiji and I'm thinking, "This is nice." Saw it come up in the ranked battles recently as the best cruiser. I'm not a big collector, I like to find ships that do a job well that I like to play (troll konig was amazing). As such, i'm looking at the Fiji/Edinburgh line and trying to decide which one to stop at. Edinburgh does get radar option at the cost of smoke, and it's repair party can repair %40 instead of %20 on the Fiji. Fiji gets lower matches though, and is downright nasty at its tier. Hrmm...
Congrats on the Z52. I guess I will buy my Z46 tomorrow and go that way as well. I really hated those German DDs up to Tier 5, but that changed at T6. The Z23 at Tier 8 is a really nice ship, I hope the next two will follow in that direction. Second Soviet line is in the works as well, about 70K XP to make on the Udaloi (again) until the Grozovoi will join the harbor. Currently 11 T10 ships in the harbor, number 12&13 will follow - that will be all of them just missing the two carriers. Of course French cruisers started today, so there is a new one missing
Oh, and last week finally Missouri did enter my fleet. No bought free XP, everything leveled fair and square.
Economy at Tier 10 with premium account and all premium consumables: Doable. You may lose 150k on bad games, but may win 150k on good ones. In average you should be able to do around nothing up to a bit of profit.

Have only lost money a couple of times at tier 10 cuz I don't play my yamato like everyone else does, I get it in close and let I'm have it as she has some nasty secondaries. Have done better with her secondaries than 2 grobe kurfurst on enemy team.
Just got into Friant, I like it. 2x Triple torp tubes with 160 to 170 degree firing arcs, combined with turrets, small size, decent speed and maneuverability at tier 3... It's like a properly tiered Emerald It has no HP, High arcing relatively slow reload shots to go with that. Having enjoyed the Brit Cruiser line, i'm used to all that and this ship is likely to replace my Caledon as toy ship of tier 3.
EDIT: Just noticed it also has 139mm main guns (oh and 13mm laughable citadel armor), so those commander skills that are great for secondaries make this ships main battery interesting. That's +2.5% traverse and -10% reload speed for EM and BFT
