I have been doing a little research into polish destroyers in WWII and the 50s. I think there is real potential for a complete Destroyer tree in WOWs in the future. This way the Blysk wouldn't be alone :).

So far this is as far as I have gotten just some basic Wikipedia articles but there is definitely potential there.

10.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ORP_Warszawa_(1956)

I would love for some of you to help me create a complete list that is properly aranged to propose to WG. I know they dont always listen to us, but it is worth a shot.

Tier 6 Polish destroyer is likely the original ORP Wicher or the ORP Burza.  The ORP Burza served as a museum ship until the Blyskawika replaced her in that museum, and the Burza got scrapped afterwards.  These ships are interesting for having 5 x 130mm guns which I believe to be a French gun, and may also show up separately in a French destroyer tree.

 

Tier 8 destroyer can either be the second ORP Grom and ORP Wicher which belongs to the Skoryy class, but which in the game will be referred to as the Smelyi.

 

Warzawa is a Kotlin class destroyer, which the devs also indicated that the class will be in the game.

Looks like basically ships leased or sold to Poland. 

 

They are either British in the early part, Russian in the later part.  The indigenous ones are the Wicher and the Grom, though they also involved foreign technology like in the case of the Grom, British.

Blys was upgraded with 4 inch DP guns and 20mm Oerlikons during the war, so a tech tree version of her is also viable. Think of the premium Blys as the stock variant.

4 guns, and yes they are the French guns. 

Moreover, they were planned to replace them with 12cm Bofors to simplify logistics.

With three singles in A, X & Y and a twin in B position, plus an overhauled AA battery of 4 40mm Bofors & 8 13.2mm MGs.
