HMS_Gurkha_1938.jpg

 

Why Ghurka will be good for this game:

 

- British premium Tribal-class DD to go with Polish premium Tribal-class DD.

- Balanced 4x2 120mm turrets that go pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew every ~5 second at 810m/s from the muzzle.

- Balanced single quadruple torpedus looser.

- Only goes 36kt.

- AA Armament? How do I mathematimicate?

- Anti vodka boat balance factor?

 

Did things?

- Sunk a Uboat.

b-but Haida...

 

must have destroyer with 4.5 km secondaries...

 

Also my calculations on Gurkha's AA based on loadout according to Wikipedia:

 

1x4 40mm pom-pom: 14dps @ 2.5 km

2x4 12.7mm quad machine guns: 4.2 dps @ 1.2 km

4x2 120mm Mark XII guns: ???

Gurkha's just not that interesting a Tribal, having one of the shorter and less interesting careers. If you want to keep the 4x2 120mm (which you should!) then I'd agree with @Dunk_Master_Flex that Cossack in her Altmark Incident configuration is the sensible ship to include.

The guns are identical to Gadjah Madah's, so she'd be a great fire starter but poor at range. The mountings are low angle only and therefore in game generate no AA power.

Probably worth letting the Canadians have Haida first...

I would love a premium Tribal.  Does anyone know if either of the ships being discussed, Gurkha and Haida, were ever equipped with the 55 degree elevation 4.7 compared to the earlier 40 degree elevation versions?  The higher elevation provided significantly more AA capability.  I'm pretty sure the 55 degree guns were equipped on some cruisers but not sure of the Tribals.

I can't think of any RN cruisers with the 4.7in, the only ships using it as a secondary I can think of are the Nelson class.

I'm also fairly certain that only the single 4.7in mounting received a 55' turret as seen in the S&T destroyer classes onwards (until the Z class which had 4.5in's) while any twin 4.7in's remained as low angle only - hence the surviving Tribals trading a 4.7in twin for a 4in twin.

thanks for the clarification on the 4.7's Mofton.  I think I have multiple sources jumbled in my mind, lol.  I really would like a line of RN DD's and if I had to pick one it would be a Tribal for historical reasons if nothing else.
