German T6 DD T-61

Italian T7 cruiser Duca degli Abruzzi

Wondering about the DD name, T was used for Torpedoboot, destroyers got Z for Zerstörer. Also: the last destroyer that joined the KM was Z-34

Finally, a German DD premium...oh wait, 128mm guns. There's two reasons to drive German DDs...150mm guns, or Z-52's superhydro. Never mind. 

 

I'll wait and see what is special about her, but I already have good captains on my Z23 and Z52, so don't need her for a captain trainer. We'll see if she's got any fun quirks.

Erebthoron - Do you know if the Italian Cruiser is definitely a Premium or is it possible that it’s a teaser for an Italian Cruiser line in the tech tree?

That was the only thing I liked about the Gaede... :)

About the T in T-61, from the WoWs FB page:

"Ihr habt uns oft nach einem deutschen Premium-Zerstörer gefragt... und hier ist er! Das "Flottentorpedoboot 1940" war tatsächlich nicht komplett deutsch - es wurde auf niederländische Designs aufgebaut und nach dem Fall der Niederlande in den dortigen Schiffswerften gebaut. Durch ihre hohe Verdrängung und mächtige Bewaffnung war die T-61 eher ein Flottenzerstörer als ein Torpedoboot. Schon bald könnt ihr sie im Spiel antreffen!"

Translated (roughly, not literally):
"You often asked us for a German Premium Destroyer... and here it is! The "Flottentorpedoboot 1940" (Fleet-Torpedoboat) was actually not completely German - it was made using designs from the Netherlands and after it's fall was build in their docks. Her high displacement and mighty armament make T-61 more of a Destroyer than a Torpedoboat. Soon you'll face her in-game."

While I beat you to Abruzzi, I didn't see the T-61. Neat!

Yesterday on my last mission on my Gaede (with 150's) I got 4 citadels on a Belfast all in one salvo in a wild 'gunfight in a closet'.  When I saw that I sat there with my mouth open and was summarily sunk, but oh, what a way to go!!!

You know, we are well over the planned 20 Premiums for 2017. Kind of impressive actually. Then again, with the delay of the RNCV line and possible delay of the MNBB line, frees up time towards working on whatever other Premiums they had in reserve.

So 4s reload, the ability to get surface detection under 6km and fast 8km torpedoes? Sounds like a fun boat...

Gaede, using her 128's, is a very under-rated DD.

Plus T-61 having 2 "4 torp launchers" (with decent torps) will also make her well rounded, more like a USN boat than a Russian or Akizuki.

VELLY INTALESTING!!

The French DD looks competitive also; 138.6mm? Just under the AFT/BFT limit, LOL!!

I do like her 150s. I was just saying.

Her 150's are nice, and can do amazing damage, but my issue was always with the reload; it always seemed like forever when compared to the other DD's at her tier.

My Opinion.

Heads up if that Italian Cruiser is anything like WWII ear ships were, if you hate French Cruisers beware of the Italian cruiser because good possibility of it being similar. On the other hand if you enjoy the French Cruisers then the  Italian Cruiser  will be something you will enjoy.

From what I have uncovered in my Naval studies French and Italian naval ships at least when it came to Cruisers tended to be similar. Also possibly because some Italian Cruisers came from France including some that had been sank, Italians had refloated and put back in service in their navy and they got sunk again lol.

The T-61’s turning radius and rudder response is what jumped out at me. It is not a slug.

My Z-46 (soon to be Z-52 captain) will abuse the unholy hell out of that destroyer....I can't wait for something fun to troll in the low tiers in.

 

The Italian cruiser looks interesting...but it makes me suspect. The Duca is....rough...very rough...the AP is bad and the HE isn't much better...now we have one at a higher tier with almost the same guns and probably the same crap armor...yeah....
