  1. Here is my Revised version of these DD splits as the older ones are locked due to certain events going on the forum so i am revising Them and Bundling them into one Post please leave feedback below compared to the current lines here are the features of each line Features of the American Destroyer line Each ship has: Two Shell types HE and SAP 2 Quadruple centerline torpedo launchers with less damage and but reload better than their quintuple tube siblings Will have better hitpoints than their main line counterpart at the cost of a higher detection range for most ships Consumable utility with multiple consumables to choose in different slots which are: Slot 1 Smoke Generator or Surveillance Radar (5km 50s) T8+ Slot 2 Engine Boost or Short Range Hydroacoustic Search Slot 3 Defensive AA fire or Repair Party (T8+) Features of the British Destroyer line Each ship has: Two Shell types HE and AP with the same characteristics as the Light Cruisers for the 4 inch gunned ships torpedo launchers with better range and reload better than their main line siblings with the ability to single fire them Will have worse hitpoints than their main line counterpart with the benefit of a lower detection range for most ships and 50 mm side plating from tier 7 Good Anti Submarine Performance with the Squid ASW Mortar on some ships from Tier 7 (not present on tier 8) Consumable utility with multiple consumables in different slots which are: Slot 1 Short Burst Smoke Generator Slot 2 Quick Long Range Hydroacoustic Search 30s duration 3km torp detect 6km ship detect 6 charges Slot 3 Engine Boost Slot 4 Repair Party (T7-8) /Specialized Repair Teams (T9+) Features of the French Destroyer line Each ship has: Generally average hitpoint pools for the tier with the same hull saturation mechanic as the main line Great concealment for destroyers of this nation Fast long range torpedoes with high damage Multiple Charges of Engine boost allows for quick escapes, which has the same characteristics as Le Terrible's Alongside Short burst Smoke and a Emergency Repair Party for patching up Battle damage Consumable utility with multiple consumables in different slots which are: Slot 1 Short Burst Smoke Generator emission time 15 seconds dispersion time 35 seconds reload time 50 seconds 6 charges Slot 2 Engine Boost 6 charges Slot 3 Emergency Repair Party (T8+) 4%/sec heal rate 10sec duration 75% ship hp restore 140s cooldown 3 charges (Basically supposed to be the british superheal cutdown to half the time) with the characteristics stated here is a view of the trees with the additions: Here are the British Destroyers Tier 6 : Partridge The Start of the line it ditches two torpedoes compared to acasta for Faster Firing guns of a lower caliber on the stock hull Tier 7 : Battleaxe From Partridge we are greeted by Battleaxe who lets you down on speed and is overall an improvement in the gun area Basically she's the unnerfed firepower of a black swan with torpedoes Tier 8 : Gurhka the odd ball of the line in a sense as it has the most gun barrels technically in both lines Tier 9 : Savage The gun count goes down significantly compared to the tier before like the jump from lightning to jutland due to the change to 4.5 inch guns Tier 10 : Gael The only paper ship in the line , it was to be an improved weapon class but its more of an improved savage its a secretive design and these are the only pictures I could find but if it was built it'd look similar to daring the armament specs are from wikipedia Onto The American Destroyers: Tier 6: USS Cassin A Mahan Class destroyer damaged at Pearl Harbour, the ship was rebuilt with Increased AA defenses and reduced armament to decrease topweight. Tier 7: USS O'Brien A Sims Class destroyer represented as commissioned, the ship was later rebuilt with Increased AA defenses and reduced armament to decrease topweight. Tier 8 : USS Porter A Destroyer Leader that was partially refit during the war with increased AA defenses (image is of the clark) Tier 9: USS Davis A Somers Class Destroyer Leader , Which was fully refitted during the war with dual purpose Guns to decrease topweight and improve the antiaircraft armament Tier 10: Castle A Allen M Sumner class Preliminary design that has two twin turrets on the bow and a single to the rear edit* a Model I made of What it would look like and Finally Here are the French Destroyers: Tier 5: L' Adroit Its basically an improved Bourrasque at tier 5 Tier 6: Le Corse Preliminary design for the Le Hardi class with one less turret Tier 7: Mameluk(5 Gun Le Hardi) This is a completely fictional destroyer who is just the Le Hardi but with X turret Switched to a Single Mount Gun Tier 8: Le Hardi looks like a 3 turret mogador and this ship is currently ingame in the form of zf6 in another form but it will be brought in the original nation it was intended for service in Tier 9: Lansquenet (improved Le Hardi) looks like a 3 turret Kleber and this ship represents the unfinished group of le hardis that zf6 was a part of that were supposed to have dual purpose mounts and two centerline triple torpedo tubes but for increased firepower over the previous tiers the mounts are two quadruples Tier 10: Maille Breze one of the t47 class destroyers , Maille Breze is basically a marceau lite except minus the speed(the lead ship of the t47 class is surcouf and that cannot be used since the sub is more famous than the dd)
  2. Here is a line I have made to get some unique US dds in the game and most notably the porter class also, compared to the normal line its a more aa and gun focused line with them being able to use defensive aa fire in a separate slot from engine boost and they also have access to short range hydroacoustic search but must trade it with engine boost like British destroyers but unlike British destroyers their smoke is standard American long duration smoke and they do not have British improved acceleration Features of the line 2 Quadruple centerline torpedo launchers with less damage and but reload better than their quintuple tube siblings Engine boost can be swapped for short range hydro Defensive AA fire in a separate slot akin to american light cruisers Better guns than their same tier counterpart in terms of number or reload Will have better hitpoints than their counterpart at the cost of a higher detection range for most ships Tier 7: USS Cassin A Mahan Class destroyer damaged at Pearl Harbour, the ship was rebuilt with Increased AA defenses and reduced armament to decrease topweight.

Notes compared to the other ships in the line and at the tier she certainly lacks in firepower but makes up for it in utility and detection range due to her lower profile than her sister she sits at a respectable 7.4km detection stock in between mahan and sims in terms of detection range her guns on the other hand are worse than mahans due to the loss of a turret she takes 4 bofors guns as aa instead which gives her better aa than sims and mahan and due to being rebuilt her health is better than both albiet slightly and she sits at a weird middleground beween mahan and sims and also suffers from having more speed than mahan with a bigger turning circle at 620 m which makes her clumsier than sims who is faster and more nimble Tier 8 : USS Clark A Porter Class Destroyer Leader that was partially refit during the war with increased AA defenses Specs Survivability Stock 13700 uprgraded 16700 Main Battery Stock 127 mm/38 Mk.12 on a Mk.22 mount 3 х 2 pcs.

Notes Unlike same tier American and American built destroyers Clark has the highest detection radius and hitpoints of all them in order to have AA comparable to Kidd who has one more bofors than Clark. the guns are enclosed in twin turrets similar to Somers with the same reload but however has the option to use the same guns as gearing albeit with slower reload at just 5 seconds which brings up her aa rating as her guns are not dual purpose like the rest of the destroyers until upgrading them. its also noticeably slower and clumsier than Cassin but makes up for it with harder hitting guns and the torpedoes which are the same ones as Bensons stock torpedoes reload faster and hit harder Tier 9: USS Davis A Somers Class Destroyer Leader , Which was fully refitted during the war with dual purpose Guns to decrease topweight and improve the antiaircraft armament Survivability Stock 14700 uprgraded 17200 Main Battery Stock 127 mm/38 Mk.12 on a Mk.22 mount 2 х 2 1x1 pcs.

Notes: Compared to her lower tier near sister Clark, Davis has a bit more health and detection range due to her lower profile and she trades a gun for worse turret placement but better reload at 4.5 seconds stock and the single mount gun is at first an open mount but becomes enclosed with the gun upgrade to dual purpose mounts which share the same reload as gearing and she generally behaves like a fletcher that reloads faster and fires more accurately at the cost of two torpedoes Tier 10: Porter The lead ship of her class, the ship has a high number of guns compared to her peers and was designed to lead destroyer squadrons to combat special type destroyers (the ship is actually Moffett in its 1944 outfit before it lost a turret since porter sank in 1942) Survivability 19 700 Main Battery Stock 127 mm/38 Mk.12 on a Mk.22 mount 4 х 2 pcs.

Notes Porter albeit having the same guns as Somers, has faster reload at the cost of a torpedo launcher and detection range . porter can also use dual purpose guns with gearings 3 second reload also as an upgrade which puts it as a more gun focused destroyer compared to Somers torpedo focus and gearings middleground utility Overall I tried to keep them in the static middleground american dds hold while still venturing away from the general gameplay of the current line and I tried to use unique ships without putting in any more 1500 ton ships from the gridleys or bagleys as it would trump benhams uniqueness and also avoiding the gleaveses as there are already enough benson clones ingame already leave feedback below

    Benson Captain Skills

    My current captain skills on my Benson are: Priority Target (1), Last Stand (2), Superintendent (3), and Concealment Expert (4). I have 3 allocated skills, and am not sure where to go next. The Benson is a good ship with good guns and decent torpedoes. However, I may sacrifice it (sell) when I get the Fletcher, so the next steps in skills will need to be flexible for moving the Captain to the next higher tier. What would you recommend to get to 19 points allocated and why? I may keep the Benson and sell my Mahan instead. My Mahan has 10 allocated and 2 allocated points, same allocation as above. Tks to all! It is the why that I am more interested in, the justification for those next skills.
