This one's a unique addition, currently exclusive to us Steam folks.

[Editing to add, my nephew who recently received this ship, a Support Ticket DID get the bonus package added to his ship after a day or so.
So Support will correct for the currently-misleading bundle description that the bonus package is included, but wasn't showing up until a ticket was filed to notify Support concerning the issue.... so keep that in mind. )

It's the tech tree tier 3 US St. Louis cruiser,
with the Halloween-themed permanent camo that looks like it was inspired by Nikolai Tesla
(the tesla coil smoke stacks don't have any sort of effects or animation, it would be really cool if they did).

The Commander Mephisteufel (actually, Skull Teufel here) is one of the Halloween event ones,
unique with this ship bundle but a guaranteed way to get him
(your only other chance is gambling on jack o lantern containers, if collecting commanders is your thing).
He does NOT have a unique voice over, nothing spooky or sinister sounding, just the generic US commander voice.

If you acquired this ship back BEFORE the "eco-visual separation"
when the perma camo had an actual economic bonus to it,
after the separation, your ship kept the permanent economic bonus package.
So effectively, you would have a unique-skinned tech tree ship earning more than a regular tech tree ship but less than a tier 3 premium.
So this article is deceptive, in claiming the ship comes with the bonus package: IT DOES NOT.
A recent gift of this ship to a nephew new to the game, his does NOT have the bonus package.

If you acquire the ship bundle now, it does NOT come with the permanent economic bonus package, and you cannot buy one for any ships under tier 5.

This is what we would call a "dick move" by the company:
it's just a tier 3, it's not going to break the game economy if the ship you'd be acquiring now got to retain the permanent economic bonus package that some of have on ours, since we purchased this BEFORE the eco-visual separation.
It would also partially justify the asking price for a tier 3 tech tree ship, if they gave back the permanent bonus to players who buy it now.

It's not a bad ship for tier 3.
And with the upcoming commander skill changes, this thing's secondary guns (a lot) will make low tier game play interesting (cruisers are getting a range buff for secondary guns).
You still have to contend with a lot of low tier torpedo spamming destroyers, but a beehive of secondary guns gaining some extra range might take its toll on those pesky destroyers a little faster.

No, it's not a bad ship.
By all means, DO grab it up IF IT'S ON SALE.
