This ship HMAS Anzac is a Destroyer currently not modelled in the game.  Its a ship that could be a premium or added to the commonwealth navy section or both.

Its not a fast Destroyer but it has good AA and radar.  I see it as tier 7-9. 

Its a Battle Class Destroyer  built after the war that was succeeded by the Daring class and was used after the war and saw service in other navies listed below.

Operators:

I has 2 configurations but lets go for the 1943 version

Displacement:    

  1943 ship: 2,480 tons standard / 3,430 tons full load

Length:    379 ft (116 m)

Speed:    

    1943 ship: 35.75 knots (66.21 km/h)

Armament:    

    1943 Battle

ships with 4.5 inch guns QF Mark V in twin mounting UD Mark VI (later renamed gun Mark 6)

Normally destroyers to that point had 4.7 in guns but could not get elevation for anti aircraft fire.  Despite the lower calibre, it actually had a heavier shell, resulting in a more powerful weapon. The four 4.5 inch guns, fitted in two Mk IV turrets, were capable of high angle fire against aircraft and were controlled from a Director Control Tower (DCT) fitted with radar )

    2 x 4.5 inch guns QF Mark V in twin mounting UD Mark VI (later renamed gun Mark 6) 

    The rate of fire of the Mk V was 24 rounds per minute when power-loaded, 12-14 when hand-loaded, and up to 18 in burst mode when hand-loaded.   Max range 12,000 m (the darings guns are mark VI)
    1 × single 4.5 in gun QF Mark IV on mount CP Mk. V
    2 × twin 40 mm Bofors mounts "STAAG" Mk. II
    1 × twin 40 mm Bofors mounts "utility" Mk. V
    2 × single 40 mm Bofors mount Mk. VII
    2 × 5 torpedo tubes for 21 in torpedoes Mk. IX
    1 × Squid A/S mortar (instead of depth charges)

Sure, put it in the Commonwealth tech tree to help flush it out.
