For those of you who have gotten access to the RN DD's and are worried about the T5,6 & 7 there is better to come. The Lightning is great and a completely different boat. Do not despair! And the Cossack is different to the Lightning though the same tier, the Lightning just seems better.

I was trying to reply to the silly Cossack is garbage thread but it got locked as I was typing! :Smile_smile:

I hate it when that happens but when the OP states their opinion in that manner the question isn't will it get locked but how long until it does.

Same here, I really wish the RN DD only missions would not be visible until the player has a ship that is eligible.

I sure hope there is better to come, thus far they are all pretty terrible.

I have a 8 KM Torp limit, if its shorter than 8 KM, I don't play it.    As such, my RN DDs just sit in the port.    1 KM of room to work is just not enough, needs at least 1.5-2KM or stealth room to be effective.   So unless they wanna drop the specced concealment to 5.5 (haha) or up the torps to 8 KM, I will never play them.

I believe that by the time the line drop , I will likely be close of 1m XP on my lighting already near 600k , the rn DD aren't for all people , you have to be well aware of your surroundings at all time in case a radar show up , when top tier you can wreck any DD in a knife fight

Lightning has 8km torps and 5.5 detect with skills and modules.

I have Icarus and Jervis and put enough XP on Jervis to be ready to buy Lighting when it comes out.

Icarus is ok. Not bad. Jervis is much better. Neither one is the best gunboat at the tier but they work well enough. No complaints here.

Good to hear Lighting is better though Jervis has the advantage of being in a (currently) better tier.

Lightning is the best of the tree.  Submarine detection levels and 360 degree turret 120mm guns that don't need ifhe.

I got the Jervis I was hoping for, and wasn't disappointed. With a few more skill points on old Burt, Jervis could be a really fun boat.
