Just wondering why there are no british flag Destroyers apart from Vampire. Vamp can only be got as a reward and I for one would like to have the chance to go through the British DD line

Line will come sometime in the future. Have patience.

In the meantime, HMS Cossack is coming, and HMS Gallant (H59) is in game.

Although not a true RN DD, HMS Campbeltown is also in game.

Gallant will be available again at some point. Vampire was sold as well as earned, I'm sure it'll be back as well. Patience, grasshopper.

British DDs would be pretty cool, lots of different classes in the RN.

Soon. Most people expect it to be the next DD line to be added (that or French.) 

I'd expect to see the next line either be British DDs, French DDs, or Italian cruisers, and if Italian cruisers is next line, Brit or French DDs thereafter. So either August or December.

I am long expecting them and collected almost the Britain built available (Vampire, Gallant, Bliskawika, and Pan Asian Tier III and V) and pushing for the Tier VII Gadja Magda.

Waiting for Cossack/Haida to finally arrive.

We need a new DD line so the BB's will have something to complain about

And there are no county class either, Exeter would be a start then they at least would get the 204mm guns

Exeter wasn't a county class it was a York class

If you still want British destroyers, the Gallant (which is the real deal), the Vampire (V&W class but Commonwealth-flagged so be aware she can't share captains) and the Campbeltown (UK-flagged modified Wickes; lacks single-launch option on torpedoes) are all now on sale.

I won the Vampire when she came out, bought Gallant yesterday and am considering the Campbeltown for the history.

Yep I realise that Iron Salvoe however with 6 X 8in she would be the first step up towards the counties from something like a Leander

I know there are some British DD"s however consider all the classes from WW1 right through to the Battle and Tribal's and C class from 43 which actually had the rate of fire slowed below 60 rounds per minute because they used too much ammo

Yeah give em homing torpedoes that only target BBs.  That sounds like a logical step in the evolution.

Gallant is a good Tier 6 DD with decent guns, low detection range of 6.0km and 8km torps which you can fire individually. That ability can be very effective at times. I got it in a mission reward last year I believe. I have the Vampire Tier 3 too but don't play it much.

Yes, but the point is that we need the RN heavy cruiser line to be brought in. This would give us the Exeter, the County class and heavily armed cruisers all the way up to the paper designs with 9-12 9.2" main guns. That would be fun to have in the mix.
