Ok, just wanted to consolidate a few things.

The actual ships:

Spoiler

T2: Medea

T3: Valkyrie

T4: Wakeful

T5: Acasta

T6: Icarus

T7: Jervis

T8: Lightning

T9: Jutland

T10: Daring

A few characteristics:

Spoiler
  • Single-fire torpedoes are available. They appear to take the option of a wide-spread launch.
  • The smoke clouds appear to be 30% larger than normal
  • Smoke duration appears to be improved, but not to the level of US smoke
  • Torpedoes appear to be right in the middle. Nothing extraordinary like being deepwater.
  • The T6-10 have hydro

Shoutouts for people who are scarily fast at getting these things out:

@Erebthoron(x3!), @renegadestatuz, @Kizarvexis(x2!), @JediMasterDraco

I will keep this thread updated, especially as more threads appear and more information is released.

"It was mentioned on Reddit that the Russian community said the rest of the line will be T5 Acasta, T6 Icarus, T7 Jervis, T8 Lightning, T9 Jutland and T10 Daring. Aside from being surprised it's not Amazon or Ambuscade at T5 this seems reasonable to me. (Though Dunkirk and not Jutland was the actual lead ship of the 2nd Battle group.)"

This was posted before Acasta was shown, so this might be it. Sorry for not quoting directly, but on mobile.

The current T2-T6 looks meh.

My only hope is that they do not mess up the Cossack, a tier 7 premium.

Tier 8 last I heard. Scream all you like; that's what we're getting.

In the current WIP state they've already messed her up by making her T8. The devs don't seem to realize that putting Cossack at T8 makes her...Akizuki except with no AA, about 80% of the DPM, worse firing angles, 50% of the torp power and 75% of the HP. I get that Cossack's DPM would be really strong at T7 but that would be balanced out by nearly everything else about her being weaker than the other ships in the tier. If they'd just nerf her overtuned concealment then she'd be balanced at T7.

The stats for the smoke generator match those found on RNCLs tier for tier.

Also, I'm not sure where you're getting the idea that the torpedoes can only be expended at once in the wide spread configuration. Do you have a link to a particular post?

  I just hope they aren't as gimmick oriented as the other British lines- that was a real turn-off for me.

Well, being 5kts faster than their historical selfs if a gimmick of its own.

The Daring I assume you mean?

http://www.navypedia.org/ships/uk/brit_dd_daring.htm

This source is 34.75kt which rounds up to 35kt - WG seem to round to the nearest 0.5kt for the most part.

The wikipedia entry is pretty suspect. Friedman's British Destroyers also has the same 34.75kt design speed:
