Hey everyone,

 

Stumbled across this beauty earlier. Really looking forward to seeing more on the RN line :honoring:

Just looked her up on Wikipedia.

She survived a magazine explosion, including her bow being blown off and was being repaired, could have been brought back into service.

Holy crap..

Also, just for the name, she seems worth it.

RN has great names for their ships.

I agree! I'm excited for this.

Don't forget a near miss bomb drop that also knocked out her steering :P

If the Campbeltown is any indication, we might possibly expect weaker guns, but stronger torpedoes, than on same-tiered US and Russian destroyers.

It would also be fun to see how a full-fledged, mid-tier destroyer, with those RN flavoured single-drop torpedo launchers, would work out in the game! :)

I wonder if its guns and torp will work like RN cruisers or like the Campbeltown.

 

Anyway, it looks great and Tier 4 is a sweet spot right now. A T4 premium DD is exactly what I was looking for. I mistaken, I read it in a hurry.

No worries did it myself yesterday

 

I still want a Tier 4 DD, as I already have two premium battleships and a cruiser ;)

They leaked some flags a while back, one was a Dunkirk evacuation flag. The whole movie to event to DD tie in makes sense

Definitely going to watch that one.

Wars aren't won by evacuations, but it sure was a victory of sorts.

She rescued 1,466 troops from Dunkirk. I was initially disappointed but Gallant has a long and honourable service history like most RN DDs. > http://www.naval-history.net/xGM-Chrono-10DD-25G-HMS_Gallant.htm

 

Mussolini calls these blue waters 'his sea'. Well well, just a moment, one of our crack destroyer flotillas is using it for a gymnasium! :D

 

British Pathe commentators are always good for a laugh, just Ignore the racist jibes.

Yep, she's not the best looking. Gallant was one of the last RN ships to feature the blocky 20's superstructure.

 

Hero and Hereward got the new style bridge we all know and love. :honoring:

Assuming a certain amount of historical accuracy the guns won't be that great with the 4.7" having a marginally higher MV than the USN 5"/38 but firing a lighter shell so possibly worse ballistics than USN DD, also I can't find any suggestion that the ROF was ever any more than 12 RPM.  Another problem is that the later ships used 4.5" guns which won't work within the current game mechanics unless they break out the magic AP again.

 

My guess would be something similar to the KM line with better HE damage and smokes and possibly better concealment and/or torps plus the single launchers as a gimick.

The BB whine will be great. Sone if our DDs had twin 5 racks. 10 torps all ained at same point to a steaight line, tunnel visioned BB? Will be glorious
