So what's a Siliwangi?   Humor is OK here because it just can't be helped.  Am I allowed to say that or will someone need a safe space?

I have a reply, but I don't want to be banned.

Review the Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks sketch.

Some call it their Silliwangi, some their moderate-sized mofton... The names are endless ;)

A quick google search showed me a former USSR ship of the Skoryy class (a derivative of the Ognevoi class) turned Indonesian. It looks like an Ognevoi, with two main turrets and two torpedo launchers (4 per launcher?). Being Pan Asian, I assume it's going to have DW torps and maybe some gimmick, like hydro. Take this with a heap of salt though, this info came from Wikipedia

Siliwangi was a great king in Indonesia in the 15-16th centuries.  Indonesian Navy, sure, but I see nothing about why the Brits would name a ship after him.  Seems especially odd that they'd use that name since a Russian .. uh .. ship carried ..  [oh, never mind]

So I get told that they'd never introduce a Pan-Asian ship called the Phuket because of the name, and yet here WG is showing us their Silliwangi....

its an Ognevoi (not saying much) with worse guns, a hydro, and DWT. Why you would play this over Lo Yang as it stands is one of life's greatest mysteries.

Still, sounds tame compared to what they've mentioned over in the dev updates. Anyone else up for a PA Izumo clone?:Smile_trollface: 

Spoiler

No, I'm not kidding.

It's a silly wanky ship with a silly hydro and wanky gun systems as it is simply a slightly modernized and re-equipped ship that was sillily designed from an enlarged fixed Storozhevoi.

To be serious, the ship is an Indonesian Skoryy-class ship named after a Sundanese king.

If it's a premium, deepwater torps aren't necessarily confirmed.

EDIT: Welp I guess I should read the other thread first.  This will be like a worse Asashio.
