Well everyone who wanted a premium German DD you now have one coming. And it definitely has my attention. The T-61 (which is technically a Dutch design) is very similar to the Ernst Gaede, however, there are also a number of differences. First, Gaede has a good 2000 HP over T-61. And that's pretty much the only statistic that Gaede is better. T-61 has a higher RoF and range (15 rpm and 11.6 km vs 11.7 rpm and 10.9 km; with 5") The torpedoes are almost identical, but T-61 has a faster load time. Gaede is faster by one knot, but T-61 has a narrower turning circle. And finally, T-61 has about 0.8 less detection. Based on these statistics, if they stay the same,  I'm inclined to believe that T-61 will have a different Hydro Search than the German standard to make up for being a slightly better ship.

It also comes with a life time supply of virtual parrano cheese to keep @Lert happy.

I'm more a fan of Gouda.

Well, my attempt to inform the 8% masses that visit the forums has officially derailed into a discussion about cheese. One can never say I don't lead an interesting life. :fish_palm:

You're a little late to the party I'm afraid:

I do generally agree with your conclusions, T-61 looks like a fine torpedo boat with that blistering reload time, decent stealth-torp margin and far better handling than Gaede (600 vs. 690 with the IJN torp boats at 640).

I can't say i am as excited. I feel there are much more viable candidates that could of came before this ship. 

 

Historical ships for one..
