12 torps? Probably 5-6km range to maintain balance.

This is EXACTLY what the game needs. More Russian premiums.

 

:rolleyes:

To be fair, I don't think they have a low tier DD premium. The other countries sans-Germany do. Even Britain does and they don't have a DD line yet.

 

I'm not for more Russian premiums, but at least it isn't a copy paste job.

Given that mast height, I'm guessing it'll be spotted pretty early.

 

But honestly, for what purpose does this Premium exist?  Some sort of T5 replacement for Gremy?  Some sort of bizarre VMF trolling?

 

7 single guns in a line reminds me very much of Furutaka prior to its new Hull [C].

Did that thing even exist?

One thing's for sure; it'll be a lot easier to torpedo it.

 

Read my mind. All I could think of was "Hmm damn..that is  VERY nice long hull to shoot my Fujins torps into at close range as I gaurentee i will be able to out turn him"

I have the Leningrad and Gremy and I'm going to buy this in a heartbeat on account of how effin' ridiculous it is. 

Its actually the length of a seal club.

Look at the displacements, this ship has nothing to do with that class unless the russians decided to carry out some sort of refit that nearly doubled the ship lengths and tripled the displacement, something I am HIGHLY skeptical of because at that point you would just build a whole new ship.

Yes, but Britain's is just a copypasta American - Blys is closer to being a British destroyer than Campbeltown is.

The build date is more of a dead giveaway that this thing is a product of wild Russian imaginations than anything else. 1917? Imperial Russia was balking out of WWI and collapsing into civil war.
