Cold War Ships in Game? Why?

Not only did WG introduce cold war ships they couldn't even do it right. The Ostergotland Class should be tier 10 as they were built after the Halland class.

Östergötland-class destroyer- 1958 and served till 1982

  • Equipped with SeaCat SAM and Wire Guided Torpedoes

Halland-class destroyer-1955 and served till 1982

  • Equipped with SSM Saab Robot and Wire Guided Torpedoes

Smaland Class Destroyer 1952-1974

  • Equipped with SSM Saab Robot and Wire Guided Torpedoes

Skane Destroyer never existed as other than as a prototype for the Oland Class

Vasteras never existed as a DD. It was a Swedish missile  patrol boat in 1974. In other words WG got lazy and made ships up.

It makes no sense!! Sweden built enough DDs in WW 2 to fully equip the tree to Tier 8.

The 3 cold war DDs need to be seriously nerfed. They have more AA than a tier 10 BB and they don't take damage easily and as such they are extremely difficult to kill

First, there is no Småland class destroyer. HMS Småland is the sister ship of Halland.

And second, Östergötland were smaller and less capable ships built after Halland to a cheaper budget, younger age does not mean better.

Thirdly, no point listing those missiles and wire guided torps as none of them have that in the game.

Not sure why you're complaining about anti-ship missiles and wire guided torpedoes from these DDs when they don't have those weapons in the game.

Sweden also took no part whatsoever in either of the World Wars, the fact that the EU DD line is mostly Sweden DDs is an insult to the other EU navies that actually did something than just watch everyone else suffer through the war, ships from a nation that didnt even do anything in either World War is honestly worse imo than a line full of paper ships, the Russian navy can at least say they helped a BIT with convoys, Sweden didnt do jack

Dude, chill. The fact that the EU DD line is mostly Swedes, kinda leads to believe that the more "minor" nations, Spain, Netherlands, are going to be added in as seperate lines under the panEU nation.

Patience is a virtue.

I personally fell that WG would do better to buff up the ships that have been reduced to "meh" status by power creep before creating new botes.

If you consider torping refugee convoys helping.

The name of the game is “World of Warships”, nowhere there it implies that only nations that fought in World Wars are to be included, nor that only ships that participated in such wars are to be included.

WG is just trying to cater to a younger generation; that is, those of us born during the Eisenhower Administration. Either that or they are trying to appease the millions of Swedish gamers who have been crying out for a ship line of their own.

Title: Cold War Ships...Why?

Answer: Because Yammy would be awful lonely as the only T10 ship.

Text: A bunch of inaccurate data about Swedish ships while suggesting more/different ones should have been added.

Response: What was the point of  the title?

Note: Newer does not = better.

Be nice, we don't want the kids in this game to actually look up that name !  We'd never hear the end of "OH God, our grandparents are playing this game......."  Trust me, I just kicked my Grandson back into Blitz...!

It's the Swedish mafia players that somehow forced the game into creating something for them.   I can't wait for a Swedish battlesphip.  Heck, there are German Aircraft carriers !!!  I want the Ise for the IJN at tier 9.......

If you ever get the chance, visit his Library in Abilene.....   They have a neat tank park nearby and have a M48A5 I actually served on.  I kept the Vehicle Id's of all of the tanks I was assigned to decades ago.

The Homing Torpedoes are really not what you guys are having nightmares about.  Those things were criss-crossing the map hitting nothing on PTS.

Oh look, someone still thinks that this is a simulator and not an arcade shooter game. It doesn’t matter if the ship designs come from World War 2, the Cold War, or the Sixth Regula-Voidform Conflict. The ships have been compressed and balanced into the game’s current engine. 

Also, tiniest violin for ANYONE complaining that we have DDs that can fight off CV attacks.

1) I am indeed not a fan of anything after the 40s in the game. Conforming 1950s+ tech to early 40s tech is not going to go well.

2) CV/DD arms race is dumb as hell, and causes craplike this to exist.

3) WG screwed up, and it keeps cascading.
