Yay, Thats a commonwealth ship I am actually excited about.  Kinda surprised the second commonwealth ship is another Australian one though, I was expecting Canadian next.

 

Edit: Just noticed it's t3, seems low to me. That surprise anyone else?

Nice, but Haida would be nicer... I mean, if they want to release a premium CW destroyer...

More Commonwealth botes! Hooray!

How about give her the gimmick of healing back 20% of damage she dealt with torpedoes for the shiz and giggles...

Hell yeah. Now I just need someone to make a Hot Topic skin for it, and a custom Lestat captain portrait.

Is this another WG joke just went to WOWS Asia face book page to check the stats for the ship 1 x 3 torpedo tubes then went to Wikipedia the ship was armed with 6 x 21 ( 2x 3 mounts ) inch torpedo tubes later upgraded to quad mounted tubes,

WG devs need to get off the vodka and the beluga and do some proper research

Too bad we don't get HMCS Vancouver (another V class) , which was a ship that was part of the dunkirk evacuation.

She will come eventually.

They shot her Naval Legends months ago.....we don't need another Aussie ship. You guys have the Perth. Plus, Haida has a far more enriched history.

Someone say Vampire?

 

Will admit that tier seems a bit low; but then what do I know...

Spoiler

I would imagine the Vampire currently in Sydney would have a slightly higher tier...

Wikipedia isn't always accurate either.

Nope. By the time she sunk, the Vampire only mounted one single triple tube.

Quote

At 2:37 am the dim shape of what Commander Moran took to be a destroyer appeared on Vampire's starboard bow. Seeking the transports he continued in towards Endau and soon sighted a second 'destroyer' 'right ahead and close.' Vampire swung to port and fired two torpedoes without result. This ship, which was in fact a minesweeper patrolling outside the anchorage, sighted Vampire and gave the alarm. The two British destroyers continued their course towards Endau until shortly after 3:00 am and when not sighting the expected concentration they turned south east by east and increased to best speed.

At 3:18 am their luck ran out. A destroyer appeared on Vampire's port bow and she fired her remaining torpedo. Again she missed while Thanet altering course to starboard fired all her torpedoes but they too sped harmlessly past the target. The Japanese destroyer opened fire and the cruiser Sendai joined in the confused melee that followed. Hopelessly outnumbered Vampire and Thanet retired south east by east at top speed, returning the Japanese fire in the unequal engagement.

Ok looking at that page now it may say that but the stats on the page still say 2 x 3 mounts, you think it would say that they were removed with a date attached.
