  1. What is [LEEUW] [LEEUW] is a dutch speaking clan consisting of relaxed players who don''t want the obligation of clan related activities but do want to have the option. that's what we are. a clan capable of getting to hurricane without the "duty" to play every night. Why so relaxed and yet so high in clan battles? because we value the fun in the game. We will compete in all clan related activities such as CB and clan brawl, multiple teams at most times. What do we look for in a new clan member We are looking for players who fit our ever growing club of members, and especially in how you fit in. not in stats but in personality. We value our enjoyment of not only the game but of our comrades, the most fun you can have is with friends, want to do T8 all secondary? or tryhard T10 with cv? you can! Things we look for in a player: - Min. 1000-1500 battles - Multiple tier X's - Winrate 57/58% + - PR 1750 + - Division up regularly - Clan Battles availability - Dutch speaking - Discord (+headset) - Easy-going - Sense of humor What do we offer as a clan? [LEEUW] is a clan, consisting purely of active and involved players. Everybody is willing to division up with everyone. Every day multiple divisions are teaming up on discord to play with each other. What we try to do is to fill the void between really competitive clans, and casual clans. During Clan Battles we try to go as far as we can go, but still try to mix in every player in the clan if at all possible. Outside of Clan Battles, we are as relaxed as you can expect, trying to play great games in a relaxed atmosphere. We know each other well and we are willing to fight for each other.And because we know each other, it is much easier for us to share constructive criticism and get better   Trial Period In our attempt to keep the clan growing but with players that fit our overall mentality we have decided to start working with trial-periods. it's a fancy way of saying after applying there will be a period of 6 to 8 weeks before you will be an full member. This period will be monitored by commanders/recruiters who will make the final decision. Some of the "scoring points": - Overall personality - Activity in Divisions - Availability in Clan Battles - Stats progress We expect every potential member will do their best to live up to these expectations If all goes well, you will be welcomed as a full-fledged member of [LEEUW] Contact Stats only tell one side of the story. If you’re interested, even though you don’t meet one/some criteria, contact us on our discord. Or send us a message in-game explaining what you’re intentions are. Please notify one of the recruiters, active daily in-game and easy to contact on discord. Discord https://discord.gg/Vk3VESh best regards, MGreywood (Commander) Revan_NL (Deputy) https://wows-numbers.com/clan/500187925,LEEUW-The-Dutch-Lions/ Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN-atYBk6QBqjesTNwU-Xlw ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wat is [LEEUW] [LEEUW] is een Nederlandstalige clan welke bestaat uit relaxte spelers welke niet de verplichting van clan battles willen maar wel de optie willen. Dat is wat wij zijn. Een clan welke Hurricane kan bereiken zonder de verplichting om elke avond te spelen. Waarom zo relaxed en toch zo hoog? omdat we het plezier in het spel voorop stellen. Wij doen mee met alle clan gerelateerde activiteiten zoals CB en clan brawls, meerdere teams meestal. Wat zoeken we in een speler? Wij zijn op zoek naar spelers welke zich bij ons groeiend clubje willen voegen, en dan vooral hoe je bij ons past. Stats zijn niet alles. Het plezier welke je hebt met het spel is pas compleet met vrienden, wil je tier 8 div met alleen secondary's doen? of tier 10 tryhard met cv? Alles kan! Punten die we zoeken in een speler: - Min. 1000-1500 battles - Meerdere tier X's - Winrate 57/58% + - PR 1750 + - Regelmatig divisie spelen - Clan Battles beschikbaarheid - Nederlandstalig - Discord (+headset) - Relaxed in de omgang - Goed gevoel voor humor Wat bieden wij als Clan? [LEEUW] is een clan, met vrijwel alleen maar actieve, betrokken spelers. Iedereen is bereid om met iedereen in divisie te gaan. Elke dag zijn er meerdere divisies actief op onze discord. Wat we proberen te doen is het gat opvullen tussen enerzijds echte competatieve clans, en anderzijds de ‘casual’ clans. Tijdens Clan Battles proberen we zo ver mogelijk te komen, terwijl we toch zo lang mogelijk alle leden van de Clan inmixen. Buiten Clan Battles zijn we zo relaxed als maar mogelijk. We proberen zo goed mogelijk te spelen in een zo relaxt mogelijke omgeving. We kennen elkaar en gaan voor elkaar door het vuur. Omdat we elkaar kennen, kunnen wij ook op een rustige, veilige manier constructieve kritiek kwijt bij elkaar; alleen zo leren we van elkaar. Proef periode In onze zoektocht naar de meest gezellige clan hebben we besloten om proef periodes in te voeren. Dit houd in dat na apllicatie er een periode van 6 tot 8 weken is totdat je volwaardig lid kan worden. Deze periode zal door commanders en recruiters besproken worden voordat er een beslissing wordt gemaakt. Enkele "scorings" punten: - Persoonlijkheid - Actief in divisie spelen - Beschikbaarheid bij Clan Battles - Ontwikkeling van de stats We gaan ervan uit dat ieder potentieel lid zijn uiterste best doet om bovenstaande punten na te komen. Als dat zo is, heten we je natuurlijk van harte welkom als volwaardig lid van [LEEUW] Contact Statistieken is natuurlijk altijd maar 1 kant van het verhaal. Als je interesse hebt, ook al voldoe je op een/enkele punten niet aan bovenstaand verhaal, neem contact op via onze discord. Of stuur ons een bericht ingame met je intenties m.b.t. [LEEUW] Stuur AUB een bericht naar een van de recruiters, in-game of op discord. https://discord.gg/Vk3VESh groeten; MGreywood (Commander) Revan_NL (Deputy) https://wows-numbers.com/clan/500187925,LEEUW-The-Dutch-Lions/ Youtube kanaal: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCN-atYBk6QBqjesTNwU-Xlw
  2. Hello captain, because this forum is in English this recruitment text is also. Below you wil find the Dutch translation (although almost everyone speaks English now a days ) Royal Netherlands Digital Army (RNLDA) is a Dutch clan and we are looking for Dutch players. We are looking for al sorts of players to strengthen our ranks. We accept new players as wel, because we remember how it felt when we started playing. Maybe you are somewhat insecure, don't have high tiers yet, looking for tips on gameplay and ship tactics. Or you are that seasoned player who wants to be in an active clan, playing foor the win, but also want to share your knowledge en experience with the newbies. No matter if you like to be bold and brawling, like to hunt and scout in a Destroyer (DD), you want it a bit slow but hitting hard with big guns from a Battleship (BB), or like to attack long distance from an Aircraftcarrier (CV). As long you are willing to play in a team, as a team and win with the team, you are welcome. And off course we want players who love Cruisers (CA) also We use Discord for voice communication (mandatory in teamplay) Interested? send me a message in game for an invite or send a application. Hope to see you soon in our fleet. McHook Dutch text: Hoi, waarschijnlijk heb je bovenstaande wel begrepen, maar nog even kort in het Nederlands. We zijn op zoek naar Nederlandse spelers die ons ream willen komen versterken. Het maakt niet uit welk type schip je voorkeur heeft of dat je net begint of zeer ervaren bent. Iedereen is welkom zolang je een teamspeler bent. we gebruiken Discord als spraakserver, dit is gezellig, maar ook zeker noodzakelijk om goed als team samen te kunnen spelen. Stuur me ingame een bericht voor een uitnodiging voor de clan of stuur meteen een verzoek. ik hoop je snel te zien in onze vloot. McHook

    Dutch tech tree

    Hello everybody, I have put together a Dutch tech tree suitable for world of warships. I have provided a link where you can view the document in which I made my tech tree. I haven't just listed the ships. I have given each ship a page describing their history, characteristics and possible game play. I would really like to share it with you and hear your feedback. Here is the link where you can view my tech tree. https://www.dropbox.com/s/0d0dfx6vks1lrpz/Dutch tech tree 3.1.docx?dl=0 If you liked it, feel free to share it with someone who thinks a Dutch tech tree is impossible.
  4. Hi Dutch Captains! Wanna have more fun in your game playing together with other Dutch WoWs players or just make use of the benefits of a strong naval base? Looking for a Dutch clan that honors the legacy of our most famous Admiral, Michiel Adriaansz. De Ruyter? Than join Sons Of De Ruyter [SODR]! Help us to make this clan strong so that others will learn who used to rule the seven seas! We are looking for active players, preferably with average stats but beginners are welcome too, as long as you are an active player.

If we have enough decent players, we can also participate in Clan Battles. Please send your applications to [SODR]. I am looking forward to it! Hoezee! PS: non Dutch players can apply too, but chatting in clan battles may become an issue...

    [K3RLS] Keruls-NL

    [K3RLS] ??? Ja, K3RLS, we zijn 4 mannen (kerels) die een eigen clan hebben opgericht. We hebben de nodige ervaring uit andere clans, hierbij kwamen we er achter wat we willen maar zeker ook wat we niet willen.. We hebben ons altijd voorgenomen dat we in een clan zaten voor het plezier, niet voor de frustraties of de ergernissen van een ander. Dit bleek lastig te zijn en daarom zijn we onze eigen clan begonnen.. logisch toch? :) Onze doelstellingen zijn dan ook: - Plezier, samenzijn en humor komt vóór competitiviteit - Fijne band opbouwen met leden - Leuke clanbattles Wat voor kerel moet je dan zijn?? We zijn mannen die plezier, wederzijds respect, volwassen insteek belangrijk vinden.. We zijn van mening dat een goeie groepsdynamiek belangrijk en nodig is om de sfeer en hiermee dus de clan goed te houden. Het type “haantje” zitten we dus echt niet op te wachten en wordt dus ook niet getolereerd. Je kunt je dus wel voorstellen dat je daar dan bij moet passen. Denk je nou, hey, dat lijkt me wel wat.. lees dan graag nog even door ;) Graag spelen we ook met z’n allen clanbattles, we hebben aardig wat clanbattle ervaring ook al kunnen we wel een goeie tacticus gebruiken. We stellen vrij weinig eisen omdat we als geen ander weten dat eisen stellen betekend dat je je zelf daar ook aan moet houden en de meeste van ons hebben ook nog een privé leven :D Hoe ziet de ideale kerel er uit? - clanbattle ervaring is een pré - Je hebt Tier x schepen (zonder wordt het lastig ;) - Je speelt graag divisies met andere leden - Beschikbaar voor clanbattles - Je spreek Nederlands - Discord (+headset) - Je hebt respect voor anderen - Je kunt tegen een grapje en hebt gevoel voor humor We stellen geen eisen aan hoe goed je bent, we zijn zelf ook geen 55% plus spelers dus zit daar maar niet over in. Wel kunnen we ons prima redden ingame en met de juiste vibe kom je een heel eind :D Wanneer je een K3RLS zou zijn dan.. – Dan pas je in een groep die op een respectabele manier met elkaar omgaat. – Dan pas je in een jonge clan die je de ruimte geeft om je te ontwikkelen tot een gewaardeerd lid. – Dan zouden jouw talenten opvallen en benut worden. – Dan respecteer je anderen. – Dan ben je bereid om clanbattles mee te spelen. – Dan speel je in een divisie met andere leden. – Dan lijkt jou een jaarlijkse clan bbq jou een prima idee ;) Wanneer je jezelf al een K3RLS ziet zijn mag je gerust contact met ons opnemen. Proef periode In principe doen we niet aan proef periodes, bevalt het, dan bevalt het, wordt het een probleem voor de één of de ander, dan moeten we helaas afscheid nemen. Contact Wanneer je geïnteresseerd bent, neem dan gerust contact met ons op of kom langs op onze Discord. – https://discord.gg/eftFczv WoWs ingame – CannonChris (Chris) – TheAFKMaster (Berly) – Alive1301 (Stijn) – Crazyparamedic (Robert) See you later Captains ps: [LEEUW], bedankt voor de template

    Fr05ty's Dutch Cruiser Tech-Tree(on request)

    Fr05ty over at the NA forum has done an article on on how a Dutch Cruiser Tech-Tree might look like and he asked me to post it over here since the Dutch are in Europe and he can't post it himself (doesn't have the necessary battles in the EU server). This article will touch on both the tech-tree regular ships and premium ships. For each ship, I provide the layout of how the ship's weaponry is distributed, its technical specifications and with the same formulas I used for the ADLA articles, their in-game values. Finally, I provide a small piece of analysis of what I think about the ship and how it'd fit with its tiermates. Essentially, each of the ships gets a mini-ADLA with all the information you might be looking for to compare it to its tiermates that are already in-game. Let's hope we see these ships in the virtual seas soon! Also, surprisingly enough, the entire tree has a distinct identity and logical progression. Read Full Article... All feedback and comments are welcome! HERE COME THE FLYING DUTCHMEN!!!! PS: The only ship that is 100% created out of thin air is the Tier 7, which is a WG-esque development of some discussions had in Parliament in the 1930s of how a Dutch Heavy Cruiser might've been. Fr05ty took those requirements and went with a design process off of it, resulting in what you see today. Fr05ty has a naval historian contact that has Dutch Navy designs for 2 heavy cruisers from the 1930s, but he hasn't been able to find them amongst his collection. When he does, Fr05ty'll be able to substitute the T7 for a more historical ship possibly, else, they could become a premium. All other ships have actual design data, construction parameters or actually served.

  9. Tijger (Eng: Tiger) was a class of three ships (originally planned as five ships) build for the Dutch Royal Navy (DRN). Designed in respond to The Japanese battlecruiser - Kongo. The Tijger-class battlecruisers were the most active capital ships of the Dutch Royal Navy during both World War I and World War II, participating in most major engagements of the wars, In World War I after the Netherlands' capitulation Tijger and Leuw went to Britain and were seized by the British. During World War 1, both ships partook in the Battle of the Falkland Islands (Leuw), the Battle of Jutland (Tijger sinking SMS Seydlitz) and the Second Battle of Heligoland Bight. In World War 2, Tijger participated in the sinking of Bismarck, but could not arrive in time to be of major effect to the engagement. She later fought in the Battle of Calabria and the Battle of Cape Matapan before becoming the flagship of the Dutch-British fleet in the Battle of the Wakatobi. Only Panter would be sunk by enemy action in 1941, either by gunfire from Kongou or Mutsu two weeks before the Battle of the Wakatobi. After the war, Tijger and Leuw went into reserve until 1953, when plans were made to turn them into museum ships. Tijger is preserved in Amsterdam, while attempts were made to sell Leuw to Singapore, but due to economic concerns, the plan was aborted and Leuw would eventually be scrapped in 1958 HrMS Leuw (in the middle) and HrMS Panter (far right) in Rotterdamn, 1914 (Actually it's Hiei) Service/constructed Type - Battlecruiser.

Tijger in 1919 after The Great War Tijger in 1932 refit. Tijger in 1943 History of Design As Japan start to expand their territories, United Kingdom Of Netherlands and Belguim were fully aware of Japanese actions and started to build their new navy, Lunch of HMS Drednought escalated it even more. In 1908 Dutch Luanched their first Drednought - De Ruyter and 1 more was ordered in 1908. Originally Dutch Design Deparment come out with those characteristics 19 000 tonne armoured cruiser (actually battlecruiser) 4*2 12'' one aft, one fore and 2 in ashelone but they had broadside of 3 turrets on each side. speed 24 knots (54 000 hp) armor belt 140 mm but commissioning of Invincible class in 1907 brought the end of that design. In 1909 Vickers designed a battlecruiser for the Japanese Navy, it asked Vickers to design and build their battlecruiser, which became Kongou. Dutch knew about the Ishizuchi (later Kongo) design when she was still on blueprints since they had an exteremely good intelligence network In Japan and the Vickers company. On October 3 1910 the Dutch Admiralty and Dutch Warship committee made up demands: 8 or (preferably) 10 14'' (356-360 mm) Armor belt thicker than 8 inchies speed 27 knots range 7000 miles crew 1300 people Vickers pick up the demand and John Lighstrong proposes to George Thurston (chief engineer of Kongo class and Tijger class battlecruisers) to just copy the existing ship, improve propulsion and add an additional inch of armor belt, but reduce the caliber of secendary guns to 5''. On October 14 1910 John Lighstrong and George Thurston showed designs to the Admiralty and they approved the designs, only problem was: need higher caliber for secondary batteries - 6'' (152 mm) Armor belt 9'' (229) not 8 (203) as it was currently. In 3 days the ship was proposed again and the Admiralty accepted the design. It was decided to build 2 ships in the British Portsmouth Shipyard, and 3 other in the Netherlands. Design discription Propulsion The Tijger-class ships had two sets of Parsons direct-drive steam-turbines, each of which drove two propeller shafts. The high-pressure turbines drove the wing shafts while the low-pressure turbines drove the inner shafts. The turbines were arranged in two compartments, separated by a centerline longitudinal bulkheads; both compartments were situated between turrets No. 3 and 4. They were designed to produce a total of 76,000 shaft horsepower, using steam provided by 36 Yarrow, with working pressures ranging from 17.1 to 19.2 atm (1,733 to 1,945 Kpa; 251 to 282 psi). The boilers, arranged in eight compartments, were mixed-firing with feul firing sprayed onto the coal for extra power. The ships had a stowage capacity of 4,200 long tons (4,300 t) of coal and 1,000 long tons (1,000 t) of oil, giving them a range of 7,000 nautical miles (12964; 8055 mile) at a speed of 14 knots (26 km/h; 16 mph). The battlecruisers were designed to reach a speed of 27.5 knots (50.9 km/h; 31.6 mph) and all of them exceeded that speed on their sea trials. The Tijger and Leuw attained 27.54 knots (51.00 km/h; 31.69 mph) and 27.72 knots (51.34 km/h; 31.90 mph) with 79,172 shp and 81,443.

Armament The primary armament of the Tijger-class consisted of eight 45-caliber 14-inch guns, mounted in four superfiring twin-gun turrets (same guns as on Kongo, but with sligtly heavier shells - 675 kg). The turrets had an elevation capability of -5/+25 degrees except on Tijger whose turrets had a maximum elevation capability of +20 degrees. The shells could be loaded at any angle and the guns had a firing cycle of 25-30 seconds. These guns and their turrets underwent multiple modernizations throughout the ships' careers. During the first reconstruction of the class during the 1920s, the elevation of the main guns was increased to a maximum of +35 degrees. The recoil mechanism of the guns was also changed from a hydraulic to a pneumatic system, which allowed for a faster firing cycle of the main guns. By World War II, the guns used Mk VII armor-piercing capped shells. Each of these shells weighed 713 kilograms and had a muzzle velocity of 800 meters per second. They had a maximum range of 25,000 meters (27,000 yd) at +20 degrees of elevation and 35,450 meters (38,770 yd) at +40 degrees after modernisation. Also available was a 625-kilogram high-explosive shell that had a muzzle velocity of 815 meters per second. As built, the Tijger class was fitted with a secondary armament of sixteen 50-caliber six-inch guns mounted in single casemates along the sides of the hull on the upper deck. Eight guns were mounted per side, each having an arc of fire of 130 degrees and a maximum elevation of +15 degrees. Each gun could fire a 45.36 kilogram (100 lb) high explosive projectile to a maximum distance of 22,970 yards (21,000 m) at a rate of between four and six shots per minute. During their reconstruction in the 1930s, the maximum elevation of the guns was increased to +30 degrees, which increased their maximum range by approximately 900 metres (980 yd). The ships also mounted four 40-caliber 76 mm anti-aircraft (AA) guns. The 76-millimetre (3 in) high-angle guns were in single mounts. Each of these guns had a maximum elevation of +75 degrees and could fire a 6 kg (13 lb) projectile with a muzzle velocity of 680 m/s (2,200 ft/s) to a maximum height of 7,500 metres (24,600 ft). None of the ships were equiped with torpedoes since the Dutch Admiralty thought that torpedoes were useless on a capital ship. The Tijger class's secondary armament changed significantly over time. During the modernizations of the 1930s, all of the 76 mm guns were replaced with twelve 50-caliber 105 mm (4.1''). These guns were fitted in twin mounts, 2 on each side of the fore and aft superstructures and 2 on the funnel platform . When firing at surface targets, the guns had a range of 14,700 metres (16,100 yd); they had a maximum ceiling of 9,440 metres (30,970 ft) at their maximum elevation of +90 degrees. Their maximum rate of fire was 18 rounds a minute, but their sustained rate of fire was around 12 rounds per minute. The light AA armament of the Tijger class changed dramatically from 1933 to 1944. During the second reconstruction, the ships were fitted with four to eight twin 25 mm machine-guns, later replaced by 40-millimeter Bofors. The 40 mm guns were mounted on the Tijger class in double, triple and quad mounts. Leuw utimately carried 82 guns - 16 twin 40mm, 10 quad 40mm and 10 twin 20mm Oerlikons. Construction and History First Tijger was laid down in January 20 1911 and a week later Leuw. On June 6 1912 9000 people observed Tijger's launch, including queen Wilhelmina, King Goerge V, Theo De Meester (prime minister of the United Kingdom of Netherlands and Belguim), H. H. Asquish (UK PM) and First Sea Lord of Netherlands - Albert Ghalen launch of HrMS Tijger (actualy Kongo) She made 28,3 kts during her sea trials with 81,443 horpsepower Shortly after her commissioning she went to Dutch-British exercises. Her commisioning set off a lot of confusion in the Japanese Admiralty since the ship was literally an improved Kongou with additional armor. World War I In 22 June 1914 HrMS Panter was on her way to East Indies, Leuw in South Africa (ducth colony, alternative history) and Tijger was anchored in Amstedam with HrMS Tjerk and De Ruyter in 1st Battleship squdron (actually 2nd, but she was in a battlecruiser squadron with the armored cruisers Holland, Zeeland and Java) After the assasination of archduke Franz Ferdinand ships were loaded to wartime standard and 2nd Battlecruiser squadron moved to patrol the North sea on July 30th. On August the 3rd Germany diclared war on the United Kingdom of Netherlands and Belguim. On the same day at 6 o'clock Tijger and her squadron engaged SMS Yorck and Augsburg, the latter being sunk by Zeeland at 9:05 and Tijger sinking Yorck at 10:32 (Yorck detonated). On August 5th Tijger and Tjerk were bombarding german ground forces, which were 4km North of Amsterdam, After German Imperial Army captured Amsterdam and Dutch army continue the fight in Holland and Belguim, Dutch Vice Admiral Louis Astvir was issued an order from Dutch and British goverment to sail to Scapa Flow and his ships to be seized by Britain, 3 days after Dutch Home Fleet consisiting of 1 battlecruiser, 4 Battleships, 6 pre-drednought battleships, 8 protected cruisers, 5 armoured cruisers and 83 Destroyers and Torpedo boats arrived at Scapa Flow. At October 8th 1914 Dutch warships raised British Royal Navy flags, but the Dutch crew remained; Tijger was renamed to HMS Splendid and Leuw to HMS Holland. HMS Splendid was assigned to 5th Battlecruiser squadron and during gunnery practice she prooved to be the most accurate ship in squadron. HMS Splendid was ordered to patrol the North Sea. HMS Holland was ordered to Europe on October 29 1914, but the defeat at the Battle of Coronel delayed this and she was to stay at Cape untill she could join the british battlecruisers Invincible and Inflexible. After meeting up with them Doveton made Holland his flagship due to the fact that she was much more powerful than the Invincible class. During the Battle of Falklands HMS Holland sunk the armoured cruiser Scharnhorst and took 6 210 mm hits and 8 105 mm, 4 people died and 15 were injured. After the battle Leuw (HMS Holland) went to Britain for minor repairs and was placed in Horace Hood's squadron in the Grand Fleet. On 14 December HMS Splendid, along with the entire british battlecruiser squadron, tried to intercept and destroy Hipper's scouting squadron after a raid on Scarbrough, but failed. At the Battle of Dogger Bank Splendid took 4 hits: first hit on the bow, which threw her port anchor into the sea, second hit was a ricochet from B turret (apparently hit from SMS Seydlitz), third hit was to the belt, causing minor damage, and the final hit was to the main rangefinder (which was above the bridge), killing 6 people and injuring everybody on the bridge, including Commander Jacob Van Kleij (captain of Splendid/Tijger from 1916-1919, Vice Admiral from 1930-1936 and finally Admiral from 1937-1943, commanding the Dutch-British Fleet in the Java Sea); Meanwhile Splendid hit Seydlitz 9 times and later she concentrated her fire on Blucher, hitting her 14 times. Eventually Blucher sank and Splendid took the survivors. Afterwards Splendind went in for repairs until February. Battle Of Jutland On May 26 HMS Princess Royal struck a mine so Splendid replaced her in the line of battle. At 16:50, during a run to the south Splendid hit SMS Seydlitz, causing heavy damage and as a result sinking her, even though the British were not aware of this. During night actions she blew up SMS Hannover. During the course of the battle Splendid received 14 heavy shell hits (5 30.5 cm from Derflinger, 7 28.0 cm hits from Seydlitz and 1 28.0 from Hannover); 103 people had died. One of the hits landed right next to her starboard gun in Q turret, taking it out of action, and thus she had 7 guns during the battle. Meanwhile her sister didn't suffer any damage whatsoever, but she hit SMS Moltke and Konig (Konig 3 times, Moltke 5 times). After the battle Splendid was under repairs until August In Sepetember 1916 Leuw was assigned to the Mediterranean and while on her way there she escorted HMHS Britannic - an Olympic-class liner which was rebuilt as a floating hospital. At 08:12 on 21 November 1916, Britannic struck a mine, HMS Holland and two destroyers that happened to be near started atnti-torpedo manoeuvers, thinking that german U-boats were nearby (also due to the fact that SS Burdigala ex- SS Kaiser Friedrich, which was sunk week earlier in same area by a german U-boat). After 15 minutes of manoeuvering HMS Holland's captain realised that there was no sign of enemy U-boats and he began to evacuate people from Britannic onboard, which took aproximately 20 minutes. Following this attempts were made to save the liner and HMS Holland began to tow her to the Island of Kea, (luckily the port holes had been sealed and Britannic was sinking relatively slowly). Britannic made to Kea where she ran aground and was later salvaged in 1919 and brought back to the White Star Line, where she continued her service, along with her sister ship - Olympic. In 1951 they were to be scrapped, but Britannic was saved by 20th Century Fox and she was filmed in the movies "Titanic", "A Night to Remember" and "Britannic" (1963; fictional movie just for fun becouse why not :D) and was later preserved as a museum ship in Halifax. Anyway this is story of Tijger/Splendid class isn't it? After the saving of Britannic, HMS Holland was boambarding the Dardanelles and in January 1917 she engaged Yavuz Sultan Selim (ex-Goeben 2nd ship of Moltke class). The engagement lasted 52 minutes and both ships took heavy damage, Holland took a slightly heavier damage, but was still capable of fighting. Holland (Leuw): 11 hits (only 280 mm hits), 162 men killed, 111 injured. Aftermath: penetrated belt , damaged turbine and 8 boilers, Y turret knocked out, one hit to the aft and a few fires. As a result of the damage the ship was in repairs for 5 months. Yavuz took 9 hits 356 mm and 24 152 mm hits, 1 turret was jammed for a while, ruddder jammed, full conning tower penetration, small secondary gun magazine explosion and a short term fire, which nearly caused main gun magazine detonation. HMS Weymouth, which was escorting Holland (Leuw), sank from a detonation, caused by Yavuz. Aft hit to Leuw after engagement with Yavuz (actually this photo of HMS Warspite after Jutland) Panter with the rest of the Dutch fleet were in the Dutch East Indies until 1916 when in June they were called to the Mediterenian Sea. For the rest of the war all three ships were patrolling the seas where they were stationed. During this time Splendid shined again and participated in the 2nd Battle of Heligoland Bight, sinking cruiser SMS Koln and receiving 2 105 mm hits. On 11 of November the Armistice was signed, marking the end of the war. Later on HMS Splendid, HMS Holland and rest of Dutch fleet, which had been seized in 1914, were returned and given their original names back. Interwar Period In 1919 Tijger and Leuw took part in escorting th German Fleet to Scapa Flow, directly behind the US Squadron. On the 21 of June 1919 Germans started scuttling their ships, (in this timeline) only Badaen, Hindenburg and Derflinger were saved; Hindenburg in particular was saved by the actions of HMS Warspite and Tijger. After the accident german crews were sent back to Germany and the surviving ships were crewed by the British. On June 28 1919 according to the Treaty of Versiles UKNB got all german territory west of Rhine fell under Dutch authority for 16 years, also after they got Papua New Guinea. years and Germany had to pay 42 billion gold marks as reparations as well as give up SMS Hindenburg and the cruisers Graudenz and Regensburg, also Dutch demanded to Germans to finish 3 battleships that they ordered in 1914, which were nealy finsihed but stayed on slipways: Zwijger, Oranje-Nassau and Prinz, In 1920 all 3 ships were commisioned in DRN Zwijger-class in 1919 Netherlands's economical situation was in a really bad state after The Great War, losing 654,349 people and double of that were injured. 38% of factories were destroyed by the Germans during the war and/or by Dutch Partisans, which was a heavy hit to the dutch economy. This all meant that the Netherlands couldn't sustain both a relatively large navy and an army (at least what was left of it). In 1920 6 out of 18 Light/Protected cruisers were scrapped (keep in mind that 2 of those cruisers were seized from Germany), 45 out of 95 destroyers/torpedo boats and 2 out of 10 ARC were also sent to be scrapped. Next year it was decided to sell a few cruisers and Hindenburg to Brazil or any other nation, which might be interested. UKNB In 1919 In July 1921 Brazil bought Hindenburg, 4 cruisers, 2 ARC, 25 destroyers. All ships arrived in Brazil, except Hindenburg. At 9:15 October 3 1921 Hindenburg set sail for Brazil. At 20:00 (Rotterdam time) October 7 Rotterdam radio tower recieved the last massage from Hindenburg "All alrigt, Heading to Rio De Janeiro". At 23:00 when another radio message should have been sent there was silence, but it was thought that everything was alright and the crew had simply forgotten to send a message. The next moarning no massage was recieved, and it was thought that ship might be out of radio range. The ship should have been in range of Brazilian radio towers, but no signs of the ship were present on the 9th and 10th of October. The Brazilian, Dutch and British fleets immediately started search operetions, dozens of cruisers, 4 battlecruisers .(Tijger, Leuw, HMS Tiger and HMS Hood) and 1 battleship (HMS Warpite), along with several rescue ships and liners like RMS Mauritania and RMS Britannic were sent. There were no SOS signals sent by Hindenburg. HMS Hood was closest to pintpointing the place of the accident. In fact she had radio conversation on the 5th of October near the West coast of Spain. After 2 weeks of searching Hindenburg was claimed to be lost along with her whole 1208 people on board. There are many theories regarding the loss of Hindenburg 1. German sabotage: 1.1 The ship had bombs planted in the magazines either in 1918 or during the Scapa Flow accident, which is the most unlikely scenario. After attempts to scuttle ship were checked for everywhere, but no signs of bombs were spotted. 1.2 Bombs were planted same day she set sail from Rotterdam by a German spy onboard the ship. 1.3 spontaneous cordite explosion (official one) 1.4 spontaneous fire in her magazines 1.5 Since after she Scapa Flow Accident Hindenburg had issiues with electrocity, so fires happened due electrocity problems in magazines and ships magazine detonated. Now other theories 2 Ship might have been stolen by aliens 3 Ship might have been sunk by Kraken etc, etc of course last two theories were made by conspiracy theorists so they most likely didn't happened (you guys can make your own theory :D) Last Photo of HrMS Hindenburg before she wanished After the accident Invisitigations were held, meanwhile people were blaiming Germans for loss of Hindeburg, but its politics so lets skip those political isues. After Invistigation official explanation on loss of Hindenburg was a "spontaneous cordite explosion" So charges on all ships were replaced by another much more stable sort of cordite In 1922 UKNB joins Washington Naval Treaty where UKNB Navy is allowed to have 248,000 tonns of capital ship displacement, so battleships, Van Spejk and Hedrick were send to scrap yards, later is it was clear that Japan are allowed to keep Mutsu another 35,000 tonns was added to Dutch navy for building, but due economical issues Netherlands couldn't buid anything untill 1938, so it was saved for another day. 1 hull of unfinished Tijger-class ship - Leopard was allowed to be finished as Aircraft carrier Dutch Royal Navy is left with, limitation for future refits of Tijger's was no more than 33,000 tonns of standard displacement. 1 unfinished capital ship hull, later CV 3 BC's: Tijger, Leuw, Panter. 5 BB's: Tjerk, Kartenear, Zwijger, Prinz, Oranje-Nassau 12 CA (but at the time they left with 6 CA's) 14 CLs (8 at the time) and 120 DDs (50 at the time) and 14 submarines. After Washington Naval Treaty Tijger travalled to Italy and France for "Showing the Flag" Exercises comming up victorious in gunnery and damage control exercises, In 1924 she travaled to US and Japan again for showing the flag exercises only loosing to Americans in gunnery. At that it was clear that Tijger is now outdated, aspecially after commissioning of Hood and Rebuilds of Kongo. So refit was needed for the ships, It was decided to replace her machinery with fully oiled fired boilers and increase in speed, Brown Curtis boilers were choosen and to put 14 of them with grand total of 146 000 h.p so she can reach top (sustainable) speed of 31 knots (meanwhile Kongo had 12 of those boilers with 130,000 hp in 1930), Her guns needed to be changed since her old guns was very close to end of their lifespan, also new havier shells were issued - Mk V 713 Kg shells APC. New mast for new Fire Control facilities, torpedo bulges and currently on work Dual Purpose 105 mm bofors guns. Tijger and Leuw were send to refits in June 1929 and were out fro refit in 1931, Panter meanwhile was sent to refit in 1930 and was out from refit in 1932. After refits Tijger remained in Europe with HrMS Tjerk and Zwijger, meanwhile Leuw was end to Africa and Panter to East Indies. In 1936 Japan left thel treaties and escalator clause was in. (oh and by the way in 1937 Dutch consisted or 1 CV (One more in construction - HrMS Rotterdam), 3 BC, 5 BB, 9 CA, (and 1 in commision, and 2 more under construction), 10 CL (4 more under construction) and 86 destroyers (+ 19 under construction). In 1938 Ships were again refited. the were equiped with early radars and all 25 mm AA was replaced by 40 mm bofors. At this appearence all went to the new war. World War II At 30 of August Tijger and her squadron consisting of heavy cruisers: Endhoven, Frielsand and, Light cruisers: Old cruiser Java, Boer, Linburg, and 8 N-class destroyers were set to patrol. In September 2 UKNB joined World War II along with Britain and France after Germany Invaded Poland (UKNB Joined allies in 1937 after annexetion of Czechoslovakia) same day her squadron encountered submarines U-12, U-18 and U-6, Tijger took One torpedo hit, and Destroyer Naalt was sunk, from september 3 to september 24 Tijger was in repairs and stayed at Amsterdam untill January 1940. In February Endhoven with support Tijger sunk cruiser Konigsberg and few merchant ships she was escorting west of Kopenhagen. In May Netherlands capitulated, but goverment and gold reserves were evacuated, later on Tijger, Leuw and Zwijger joined force H althought they still raised dutch flags. In July 9 Tijger and Leuw took action in battle of Calabria, during the battle Tijger and Leuw heavily damaged Gulio Ceasare, sunked light cruiser Bartolomeo Colleoni (Tijger) and Bolzano (Leuw), while Tijger took 14 hits and Leuw 9: Tijger: 3 328 mm, 6 203mm and 5 152 mm hits; Leuw: 1 328 mm, 8 203 mm hits. After the battle both ships were in repairs in Alexandria. Before Calabria Vice Admiral Jacob Van Kleij asked Piet De Jong who was naval minister and Admiral of the Fleet at the time to send 2 Battleships and 1 battlecruiser along with 1 aircraft carrier to the Miditerranean sea but it was rejected but still Jacob managed to convincied Piet to send Aircraft carrier Rotterdam. Later in November Tijger along with HMS Warspite were escorting Aircraft carriers Formidable, Ark Royal and Rotterdam to fomous atack on Toronto. After Toronto both ships were escorting Convoys from US to Britain and to Egypt. In may 23rd 1941 Tijger was escorting convoy while KMS Sharnhost engaged her although engagement wasnt desicive both ships took light damage, Tijger took just one hit on her stern while Sharnhost took 3 hits on her hull and superstracture, after 12 minutes of this combat both ships disengaged. at 25 of may Tijger recieved "Sink, The Bismarck, Sink the Bismarck!" Telegram same day she was 150 km weast of south-west coast of Ireland at the time. At 26 of July she came in but was very late Bismarck was already sinking Tijger didn't shoot a shot and started saving oparation, but hour after saving operations german submarines came in and she was forced to run away along woth Rodney and King George V, she managed to save 182 crew from Bismarck. From June 4th to August both ships were in planned repairs and from in October 26th it was decided to send Tijger, Leuw, Renown, Repulse, Rotterdam, Ark Royal Formidable and Warspite to East Indies along with Cruisers 4 heavy cruisers, 6 light cruisers and 25 destroyers to East Indies since Japan started unusual activities on Eeast. In November 2nd whole squadron set sail to East Indies, In November 25th Japan declared war to UKNB and their allies. Next day Old dutch cruiser Sumatra run a ground at Island of Ulu and Japanese quickly captured it with codes, dutch crew havent burned them in time. In November 26th HrMS Panter with heavy cruiser Flander were engaged by IJN Kongo and IJN Mutsu (with Heavy cruisers Maya and Myoko): Engagement took place from 23:45 to 2:13, at 23:45, weather was awful and it happened near Palau Sanghihe. Kongo opened fire from 11 kilometers, Panter's crew spoted her minute after Kongo's shots, at 23:53 Panter recieved first 3 Hits at middle of a ship, 1 f the shells penetrated her belt and she started taking on water and her speed dropped from 31 kts to 29,7 kts. In 1:14 Mutsu Joined the fight, and 2 of Mutsu's Shells penetreted her belt at 3rd boiler room and disabeled 2 her boilers; and speed was decreased to 23 knots, Panter meanwhile hit Kongo didn't do any sagnificent damage (since it was at Night and Dutch gunnery was poor at night while Japanese had exelent gunnery during the night), at 1:48 Shells from Kongo or Mutsu penetreted Panter's bow magazines and Panter suffured catastrophic explosion, as seemed from wreck she split in 2 parts. Battle of Wakatobi Although Panter was lost same day at November 30th Dutch broke Japanese codes and from now on knew that Japanese also broken their codes (but Japanese didn't knew it, so dutch used it as a advantage for desicive or semi-desicive battle, (also worth mentioning that at december 6th Dutch send to British Japanese plans on attcking Pearl Harbor so they can send it to Americans from there so Japanese couldn't find out that their codes were also Broken, But it'was too late and Washington recieved it 20 minutes before the attack, while Pearl Harbor recieved massage from Washington just 5 minutes before the attack. (yes it's complicated deal with it :D)), Japanese didn't knew that Dutch and British ships are going to NEI though [this battle need it's own article]. At December 4th Dutch-British Squadron arrived to Sarubaja and in December 8th day after Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor was a flagship of Spejk's 1sr Battlecruiser squadron (Tijger, Leuw, HMS Renown, HMS Repulse) during the battle Tijger sunk IJN Hiei (Hiei detonated after 35 minutes since start of the battle) and sunk heavy cruiser Haguro and Destroyer Kagero and Wakaba, while taking 16 hits, 5 to 356 mm to her superstracture, 7 356 and 2 203 mm hits on her hull, 5 of the shells bounced or not fully penetreted her (due of that fact that ship was at angle relitevely to incomming shells), 2 356 mm belts penetreated her belt between casamete and main belt and another penetreated main belt but didn't coused damage inside the citadel, and 3 last (one 356 mm and 2 203 mm) shells hit deck cousing fire. While meanwhile Leuw damaged Kongo (which was second in Japanese line, after Hiei (Hiei was flagshipof Japanese Fast Battleship squadron)) sunk light cruiser Kuma, and destroyers Nenohi, Mutsukaze and damaged IJN Fuso, Ise. Leuw took heaviest of the punch, 24 hits and 16 from Kongo, 2 from Fuso at her final and dramatic fight (again battle of Wakatobi deserves its own article so everything will be covered there). and rest from heavy cruisers. IJN Hiei (forward) and IJN Kongo firing at at HrMS Tijger and HrMS Leuw. After the battle both ships were in repairs in Surubaja, Tijger was in repairs for 2,5 moth while Leuw for 4 full moths. In 1942 Tijger was escorting convoys from India to Java, and in June 5th supported dutch landings on Borneo (Borneo was captured by Japanese in January 1942). From 1942 to 1944 both ships were escorting both Dutch and USN Carriers, Tijger was mostly escorting USS Enterprise. At start of 1943 Tijger along with Zwijger supported US Landings to Philippines In August 13rd 1943 near Philippines Tijger was attacked by 5 Japanese Kamikaze planes, she shotdown 4 of them, but 1 plane got her, plane crashed to turret B, B turret suffered little damage but parts of plane and splinters from explosion fly all over the place and heavily damaged her Bridge, 32 people were dead, Including Vice Admiral Jacob Van Kleij, He died from splinters hour and a half later, Damaged Tijger arrived to Sarabaja she went into repairs and Kleij was buried. [story about Kleij will be later on seperate article as well]. (yes war in Pacific here excelerate's much faster than in out timeline). Tijger was In Pearl Harbor when Operation Ten-Go happened (Yamato sunked USS North Corliana and heavily damaged USS Missouri, off Okinawa and Yamato run aground on Okinawa but then was gunned down by USS Iowa, Missouri, Massahusets, Colorado, Maryland... Should I count every battleship which were in Okinawa? ok Littirally all US Navy. In June 6th 1944 Leuw and Tijger was boambarding Normandy (there was also wome Dutch divisons in Normandy) and in September was supporting American-British-Dutch Army in operation Market garden. In December 7th (Ironically) 1944 Japan surrenders. So Germany Became main target for US Nuclear bombing Munchin and Hamburg was choosen for boambarding. In March 13th First city to bombed was Hamburg at 17th Munchin, overall 1,8 million people died, war ended in April 5 1945. Post War Sevice After the war Ships were send into reserves, In 1947 Dutch Fleet suffered to much budget cuts though off post war economy and In 1952 Tijgers were planned to sent to be scrpped but due of public and International public attention - Tijger and Leuw, It was hard to make sure dutch could preserve Tijger to begin with, some people who were interested donated to preserve her and her sister but Leuw was eventually sent to Scrapyard in 1953... Museum Tijger is located at Veemcate street Ijhaven channel she can be visited any day from 6:00 to 22:00. *(note after 1830 Belguim attempt of revolution, it was decided to give Belguim rights of autonamy, in 1832 Constitution was made where Netherlands and Belguim became United Kingdom Of Netherlans Belguim, with freedom of religon) Captains Tijger: 1913-1916 - Micheil Spejk 1916-1919 - Jacob Van Kleij 1919-1926 - Mark Dekker 1926-1929/1931-1933 - Albert De Haan 1933-1939 - Dirk Jaager 1939-1943 - Andries Van Leeuwen (died in 1943 with Jacob Van Kleij) 1943-1945 - Hiddie Coevorden 1945-1949 - Sven Heuvel Leuw: 1913-1915 - Mark Hens 1915-1920 - Albert Hein 1920-1924 - Hans Galen 1924-1926 - N/A 1926-1929 - N/A 1929-1936/1939-1944 1936-1937 -Ian Dekker 1944-1947 - N/A 1947-1953 - N/A Panter: 1914-1917 - Sam Coevorden 1917-1926 -N/A 1926-1932 - N/A 1932-1937 - N/A 1937-1941 - N/A Huge Thank you to TheBudgieAdmiral, Cerys, Dubsy102, LifeBeyondLiving, Dunk Master Flex and rest of Drydock and Denarmo's discord for help and support.

  17. https://worldofwarships.eu/en/news/community/they-may-take-our-stroopwafel-but-theyll-never-take-our-friesland/ Pretty sure Dutchies already know, but I'm curious who from the forum community might be there? I'm likely to be in attendance, and I've heard plenty of SCRUBS that they will go. Maybe if people could post their plans we could arrange a forumites meetup.
  18. In honor of the upcoming Wargaming event in Den Helder, the Netherlands this weekend. I will be holding a fully Dutch Stream with my friends from "Wargaming Dutchies" on Friday from 7pm till 11pm CEST

  22. When I was searching for some warships-related information, I found a topic on the NA server by user Lert. I was immediately enthousiast about that idea. Since that link likely won't work unless you have an NA account as well (like I do), Lert gave me permission to place his message here for us on the EU server. All credits go to him, and I copied this straight from his message on NA (except for a typo in the title that I corrected): While I've talked about the Admiralen class before, that was always in general terms. I believe that to enhance the chance of someone at WG taking notice of a premium ship request, I should make it as specific as possible and narrow it down to a specific ship, give a synopsis about its service history, include as much information as possible and even give my view on how to implement her, with what features, at what tier and describe what play style she would offer. No small task. So without further ado, let's get down to the nitty gritty of it, and present HNLMS Witte de With: HNLMS Witte de With as commissioned. Witte de With was an Admiralen class destroyer which was laid down on 28 May 1927 at the shipyard of Fijenoord in Rotterdam and launched on 11 September 1928. The ship was commissioned on 20 February 1930. She is named after Witte Corneliszoon de With, a famous Dutch naval officer of the 17th century. Witte Corneliszoon de With, by Abraham van Westerveld She was typical Admiralen class of the second group, measuring just under 100m long and displacing 1666 metric tons at full load. She had three Yarrow type boilers and two Parson geared turbines driving two shafts. Her drive train produced 31000 HP which pushed her along at a modest 36 knots. There is little written down about Witte de With's service career, but what's there paints a picture as tragic as that of her seven sister ships of the Admiralenclass. There is especially little written down in public, easy-to-find internet archives about her first ten years of service, before WWII broke out. It's written that she visited Saigon along with her sistership van Galen and the Java class cruiser Sumatra, in 1935. It's said that Witte de With was present at the fleet days in Sumatra in 1936, along with sisterships van Galen and Piet Hein, and the Java class cruisers Java and Sumatra. Later that year both Java class cruisers and the Admiralen class destoyers Witte de With, Evertsen and Piet Hein made a fleet visit to Singapore, stopping along the way in the South China Sea for an exercise. So for the first ten years of her service Witte de With performed PR duties and exercises, projecting force and showing the Dutch navy's investment in various Pacific sea locations. But then war broke out. Some time during 1940 or 1941, Witte de With along with her sister van Ghent were equipped with ASDIC systems. But it was during the ill-fated battle of Java Sea that Witte de With took her modest place in history. It was during this engagement that HMS Exeter was crippled by Japanese fire, when a shell from Haguro exploded in her boiler room, knocking six of her boilers off-line. Witte de With was ordered to escort the stricken Exeter back to safety in Surabaya port. Several days later, while at sea, Witte de With's aging and outdated AA suite became her doom when she was attacked and bombed by Japanese aircraft, on may 1st, 1942. The most significant hit was a bomb to the forecastle, which crippled the ship. Afloat but crippled, and unable to affect open water repairs, the captain ordered her scuttled the next day. Close-up of the bridge and mid-section, drawing quite a crowd. So what would she look like in game? For the purposes of this thread, I'm going hog-wild with stats and consumables, though all within historical reason and precedence. I will explain why further down in this post. Tonnage: At 1666 metric tons full load, we get 10900 hitpoints. This puts her at around tier 4 or 5. However, I want to place her at tier 6, which means she'll have the lowest hitpoints in tier, even behind lightweights like Hatsuharu which boasts 11700 hitpoints fully upgraded. Armor: The 'armor' on this destroyer served purely to keep the crew inside while under maneuvers. Moving on ... Main armament: 4x single Siderius No. 4 120mm guns. These were license built copies of a Bofors design and fired a 24 kg HE shell at 900 mps. This is an excellent muzzle velocity and would give it very good ballistics over range and short time-to-target, for a 120mm gun. I believe these guns to be near as indistinguishable from the guns on the in-game Błyskawica, as they are both similar vintage Bofors designed 120mm guns with a 50 caliber barrel length, 900 mps muzzle velocity and a ~10 RPM ROF. Taking Błyskawica's numbers, we get to a HE shell with 1700 dmg and an 8.5% fire chance, and an AP shell with 2200 damage. If they really are as similar to Błyskawica's guns as I imagine them to be, they would likely inherit the Polish ship's sluggish 18s turn rate. Although she would outgun Japanese destroyers at tier, do not mistake Witte de With for a gunboat destroyer. With only four barrels and a 6 second reload, her gun battery is a back-up weapon system at best, suitable for harassing battleships at long range or finishing off wounded destroyers, at most. Their muzzle velocity would give them the ballistics to accurately place warheads on foreheads at range, but she'll never have sufficient shells in the air to seriously worry anyone who isn't a Japanese destroyer of equal tier or lower. Secondary / Auxilliary armament: 1x Siderius No. 7 75mm 4x 40mm Pom Pom 4x .50 Browning M2 When commissioned this was sufficient. However, at the mid stages of WWII, it no longer was. It's even questionable whether WG would make the 75mm a secondary or not, but even if they did, it wouldn't really be any DPS worth mentioning from a single gun with 8 RPM and a 6.5kg shell. The pom-poms would give about 22 dps at 2 km and the .50s about 15 dps at 1.2km. Celebratory fireworks to hail the arrival of angry airplanes. Torpedo armament: 2x triple 533mm tube setup. With six centerline tubes divided in two launchers of three barrels apiece, Witte de With is not a very powerful torpedo boat. To give her some teeth I say she would carry Błyskawica's British Mk 10*, which gives us a torpedo with 8km range, 57 knots speed and 14400 damage. This is a very modest torpedo for a very modest broadside alpha strike. Having the same number of tubes it's very likely these will reload in about the same 70s as on Błyskawica's torpedo setup. Although her torpedo battery is relatively more potent than her gun battery suite, I'd hesitate to call Witte de With a torpedo boat. Speed: As mentioned, 36 knots. This is on the low end for tier 6, beating only some of the Japanese destroyers like Fubuki and Shinonome. Concealment: This is, for tier 6, a tiny ship. She is roughly the same dimensions and displacement as a Minekaze class destroyer, and would likely carry very similar dispersion. Minekaze boasts a 6.2km surface detection range and 3.1km by-air detection range. With Witte de With being suggested a premium and thus coming with a premium camouflage standard, her concealment would likely be in the 6.0km range by surface, before captain skills are applied. "So, wait, no hitpoints, weak gun battery, very mediocre torpedo battery, why is this thing tier 6? Sounds like the perfect tier 5, to me!" Patience, patience. Yes, the ship based purely on its own merits is a shoe-in for tier 5. That's why in my tech tree proposal, that's where I would put her. However, remember where I mentioned that Witte de With and van Ghentreceived ASDIC some time during the early years of the war? This gives us historical precedence for a Hydroacoustic Search consumable. Plus, there's another neat trick the Admiralen could do .... That's right. A destroyer with a spotter plane, carried aft on a structure above the rearward torpedo mount. Consumables: We'll start by giving her the standard destroyer suite of consumables, being DCP, Smoke and Speed Boost, all standard versions. Since we're talking about Witte de With, we'll also give her a Spotter Plane with a single charge base, and Hydroacoustic Search with one or two charges base. This would give Witte de With the flexibility and vision control to challenge cap circles and provide forward scouting in a way no other destroyer in this game can. "Wait, back up a bit. Admiralen had a catapult?" Well, no. No catapult. The sea plane was carried on a structure above the rearward torpedo mount, and lowered in the water by a crane so it could take off. However, WG already has planes that historically landed in the water and were recovered by crane just flying into the ship and appearing back on the catapult, so it'd be a very small step in terms of mechanics and programming to have the plane take off from the mount as well. "So, why Witte de With in particular? There are other Admiralen that have as historical and tragic a story." Yes, there are. However, those are better suited for the tech tree. Since consumables like a spotter plane and hydro change the play style, I wanted to take her out of the tech tree and make her a premium. Witte de With and van Ghent were the only ones who received ASDIC, so they're the only two candidates for this up-tiered Admiralen premium, and I like the story of Witte de With more than that of van Ghent. Plus, she has ties with HMS Exeter, and I think it very likely that we'll see the latter in game at some point as well. "Alright. So what play style would Witte de With offer?" She'd be very stealthy with ok-ish mobility, so she'd be a decent cap contester. This is only strengthened by the presence of a spotter plane and hydro, allowing her to see for her team and light up targets from smoke, as well as dodge torpedoes heading towards her smoke screen. She'd be a high skill floor and high skill ceiling ship with decent torpedoes and usable gun battery backup to help fight her out of tight spots, but her primary role would be scouting and cap contesting. Her small size likely makes her very agile, too. She'd require a decent captain skill point investment to get the most out of her, with Super Intendent a must, as well as Expert Marksman, Concealment Expert and Advanced and Basic Firing Training to taste. She'd also benefit from Torpedo Armament Expertise to drop her already swift torpedo reload even further. Finally, Vigilance might be a worthwhile investment as with her concealment, Witte de With should always be up front. So, in short: Pros: - Historical ship, fought in in WWII - Ties with the RN, escorted HMS Exeter - Unique playstyle with spotter plane and / or hydro Cons: - Limited appeal (NL nation not in game) - Mid tier - Requires entirely new model researched and build "Hmmm. Limited appeal, NL nation not in game. That sounds like a problem." Although she has limited appeal on the NA server as a Dutch ship, a first Dutch premium would herald and generate interest for a full tech tree. There aren't many nations left not yet in the game that WG would implement as full nations with their own tree, and the Dutch have the potential for the potential for a DD tree line supplemented with only a few design proposals and a cruiser tech tree with a reasonable mix of historical vessels and design proposals. Having that first premium offer some new and unique gameplay will further help sell the ship and generate interest. "Wait, potential for a full Dutch DD and cruiser tech tree? What?" Yes. Even if WG would not consider adding a full Dutch tree (though I don't see why not, they're running out of other nations not-yet-in-the-game that could conceivably offer a full tree) there is still space for Witte de With in this game as precursor to a pan-european tree, which I hope would have a significant Dutch presence. She could occupy the Tier 6 destroyer premium spot, while Błyskawica sits at tier 7. "Wait, I thought you didn't like balancing ships by gimmick?" You're right, I don't. Normally. However, if a Dutch DD tree is going to be implemented, Admiralen is a shoe-in for tier 4 / 5 already and likely not get the spotter plane. I think it would be a complete waste of potential if no version of her was implemented with spotter plane, and the only way to realistically solve that is to implement a variant with. However, since this puts her above T5 category in terms of potential / performance, T6 premium is the only realistic place she could go. "Ok, but what would she cost, if implemented at T6?" Likely a very similar price to any of the existing premium T6 destroyers. Right now Monaghan is in the store for $25-ish. I'd wager Witte de With would cost somewhere around that too. Maybe a bit less, maybe a bit more, but no more than $30 for the base ship and a slot, without bundle. "What style of camouflage might she wear?" There are two options, really. First is flat gray with large, white 'WW' on the sides: Second is a blocky, light-and-dark-gray pattern: This picture though is likely not Witte de With. It's probably Evertsen, a sistership. however, it shows precedence for an Admiralen in camouflage, and thus I would consider it an option for Witte de With in this game. Personally I'm partial to the clean, light gray scheme with the large 'WW' on the sides, but that's just me. "How do you pronounce the name, Witte de With?" 'Wittuh duh Wit'. The 'h' is not considered, so the 'With' part is pronounced like 'wit' with a hard T. There is a slight emphasis on the first syllable of the name, and all syllables are spoken at reasonably quick pace, none linger. Thank you for taking the time to read this proposal, and please support a dutch inclusion into WoWS. We have Haida, there is a pan-American nation upcoming with Nueve de Julio, so it's about time the Dutch were considered as well. Thanks to @LittleWhiteMouse for helping me put this proposal together, and for coming up with a possible national flavor for Dutch destroyers: Personally, I really like this idea. It's new, it's fun to play, it's a national flavor and it actually has a small basis in history. Admiral Michiel de Ruyter had a whole fleet of shallow-draft ships built which gave them exceptional maneuverability and the ability to go where his adversaries couldn't, allowing him to outmaneuver his opponents and win decisive battles that way. Sources used: @Pigeon_of_War ------------------------------------------------- End quote. Again, not my idea, but an idea by NA user Lert, who gave me permission to post it here. I'm already enthousiast for this idea, and I'm curious what you think about it.

    Dutch tech tree

    Hello everybody, I have been researching Dutch warships and ship-designs in an attempt to construct a Dutch tech tree viable for World of Warships. I'm quite confident about my results so I would like to share it with you and ask you for your opinion and feedback. I haven't just listed the ships. I have given each ship a page describing their history, characteristics and possible game play. Now you don't just see what ship I picked at what tier but also why. The following link should take you to the document in which i made my tech tree: https://www.dropbox.com/s/r3q16orzpz8e3l2/Dutch tech tree 2.01.pdf?dl=0 If you have any questions, please ask me, and feel free to share this with others. This is the old Dutch tech tree I made, I have made an improved tech tree here: https://forum.worldofwarships.eu/topic/100513-dutch-tech-tree/
