USS Buffalo - Tier X premium CA?????

Okay, Devs, you got me here. In Patch Notes for 0.4.1.0 there was a new ship, the USS Buffalo. As Critter8 noted on the ship tree, it has some interesting stats making it the Montana of cruisers. It has four triple turrets with 8" guns, not the semi-auto loading guns of the Baltimore-class but conventional guns. And unlike other high tier USN cruisers, it has torpedoes! Wow, what a ship!
Now for the bafflement:
1) Where did they find this ship plan?
2) There were two never completed USS Buffaloes, a Cleveland-class (CL-99) and a Fargo-class (CL-110) but no other cruiser was named that.
3) Buffalo, NY was used for naming light cruisers only, why the break with USN convention for this paper ship?
4) Last, but not least, since when does WG offer Tier X premium ships???
