Time for WG to recognize New Zealand's contribution to the war effort with HMNZS Gambia (Fiji class CL); could have been done in coordination with this effort.

I agree with this. I run into a lot of Kiwis and I feel they need representation. Gambia is a great start.

Why not the Vampire?  I'd take one of those over a Perth.

Why the drawing?  Why not just complete the missions and earn the ship?

You guys are way too stingy with digital goods.

The sacrifice of the Aussies and Kiwis in both WW's as well as the peace keeping efforts since then has always been understated in general - nice to see a bit of recognition here.  Additional ships for the Commonwealth navies certainly is a good idea - there are enough of them to make a decent line...

I already have Perth but it sure would be nice to get the Commander with 10 skill points.  How will that work if at all?  Will I still get that bonus? As far as I know you can't buy a commander with 10 skill points with doubloons

@Hapa_Fodder

In honour of ANZAC's Day can't you guys at least allow Commonwealth vessels to fly 2 flags.  You can do it in a mini patch.

You can get them in the armory for 1500 doubloons each.  Although, I am not sure there is a commonwealth one.

If you already have the perth, you get 4800 doubloons, and keep the captain.

Thanks Hapa_Fodder - finally Wargaming have taken note of this important day for all Australians and Kiwis (New Zealanders). On behalf of the Anzac alliance of clans i want to say thanks for acknowledging our service personnel in this way. Please pass on our appreciation to the dev and events team for doing this.

The Perth is a great and in my view the best choice for a reward to commemorate this day.

However, I find the brief information blurb quite brief, and the history around the Dardanelles Campaign/ Battle of Gallipoli could, and in my view should be teased out more. Mainly because for Aussies and Kiwis this day is as significant in our joint history as the attack on Pearl Harbour was to the USA, and the blitz was to London. This was the day in 1915 where our combined corps were coined the name Australian and New Zealand Army Corps by  General Sir William R. Birdwood.

Looking forward to Anchors away in January aboard the Vampire, in Darling Harbour.

 

To those Australians and Kiwis who will also be commemorating today:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Lest we forget.

Thank you to WG!

It means a lot to all Kiwis and Aussies to have ANZAC Day acknowledged in the game like this.

Well done and thanks again.
