With the last update, the model of the special T10 Pan-European Destroyer Smaland was changed. The new model has an launch rail for Saab Rb 08 anti-ship missiles, with two of them clearly loaded. 

 

Could this mean that missiles will finaly make it in the game with the Pan-European DDs?

What do you think?

That will not happen.

But it could happen in the long run.

 

Btw. the missile is from 1966. That is "a bit" out of our timeline.

To make the ship look more interesting.

A lot of ships in game have waterbomb launchers, that do not work.

Then why did them put them in the model? The old one didn't have them.

Well ... maybe just some kind of "throwing a bone" to trigger exactly that very discussion about such kind of weapon in order to fathom the "public opinion" ... ;)

Don´t think that the missles would be implemented in the near future ... but some time maybe.

"There won´t be subs in the game" survived a few years only as well, after all.

God knows, which crazy concepts the devs may have flying around in their drawers.

 

@ColonelPete

it is depth charges ... water bombs are something different ^^

well ... depth charge launchers were on ships since WW1/WW2 in various mounts and configurations ... missiles are definitely out of period for the game .. Just shows how much the PAN-EU (Swedish) DD line is out of place in the game ...

Wouldn't surprise me if in time they become a usable weapon, after all we have depth charges modelled in game and subs currently in development

If they would be a working arnament in game it would be so OP. Designed to sink ships from 70kms. Top speed of 900kms per hour and yes homing too:) 

Give it to the swedes the torps suck when it comes to damage.

Read the question....

He was asking about getting missiles with EU DD. EU DD are here, still no missiles. That is a no.

But it is possible in three+ years. That would be a yes.

 

Looks like you are competing for the title of most clueless commentator. Looks promising  :Smile_great:

You cannot even read your number of posts...

You look like one of the top contenders. I could not even compete, even if I tried.

No, it is a NO and a maybe. That is not the same, but you tried :Smile_medal:

And sometimes it is warranted to give more details in your answer. Just a NO and a maybe would not have helped the OP.

Yes, no, maybe is correct: Right now there are no plans, nor are there any for the long run, but what will happen in a few years, nobody knows...
