Aigle seems ideal for a tier 6 or tier 7 DD. Though if it is a premium, colour me concerned.

The destroyer is Aigle herself:

Aigle's sister, Milan. 

 

HP 17,536 (Likely to round down to 17,500). Using the standard destroyer HP formula. (Thanks @Lert through the modern ships HP post)

 

36 knots speed.

 

5 x 138mm guns in single mounts. Edit: reload will be around 7.5-5s depending on how WG will balance her. Traverse speed I don't know.

1 x 76mm AA gun.

4 x 37mm AA guns.

6 x 550mm torpedoes in two triple mounts.

 

Fair winds and following seas captains! :Smile_honoring: (Yes 5,000th post woo! Celebratory post tomorrow.)

I'd have to agree. As a premium she's a less than noteworthy lead-ship of a class so... yeah, that makes little sense.

As she's apparently alone it may be more likely to be premium than line ship. The camo looks rather 'premium' to me too.

FR DD following on from PA DD seems slightly unlikely too.

Oh dear.

Not as good looking as something with a Dutch flag ;)  This has the wrong tri-color!

Their national flavor will be a consumable that cuts MB reload time by 80% for 30 seconds, excellent for knife-fighting.

Oh really? Where'd you hear this? That's an interesting choice for a consumable.

French DDs before British DDs? 

This isn't really a problem for me but the UK did have tons of DDs. 

The problem is balance. Almost all British DDs had 4.7 inch (120 mm) guns and several had only 1 torp launcher (Like Haida as a Tribal-class). We are getting HMAS Vampire.

4.7in's aren't a problem, the 4.5in at higher tiers will be more of a penetration problem.

The Vampire would have originally had 2 sets of tubes, and the Tribals were somewhat of an anomaly. The majority of British DD types I expect to have 2 sets of tubes. The PA T5 and T7 are British with 2 tubes and Gallant is pretty typical.

Huh. I was figuring Aigle for T7 in the tech tree, not a T6 premium.

Poor concealment and ROF perhaps for T6 over T7?

I am surprised that the 'class-leaders not being premiums except in unusual cases' rule seems to be increasingly ditched.

Not the good Vampire. 

We are getting the V class not Daring.

Both the V-class Vampire (which lost one of its' original triple tubes to offset more topweight AA gains) and the 1950's Daring-class Vampire (which has 1x 5 tubes on the Australian model vs 2x 5 on the British) have single torpedo launchers.

However, both were adapted from classes which originally had twins as built or designed, but just changed to reflect the power of air attack. Pretty similarly to the USS Kidd.
