WG can we please have developed the battle class HMAS Anzac Destroyer as part of  a commonwealth line or a premium thanks  posting this again.

It was similar to the daring class.

The original building programme for the 1943 ships included provision for the later ships, the third flotilla, to be armed with the new 4.5-inch Mark VI turret. Although these ships were cancelled by the Admiralty two ships of this type had been ordered by the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in Australia in 1945. Neither of these ships were cancelled and both ships were laid down in 1946, although, like the building programme in Britain, progress was slow. The first of the two ships, HMAS Anzac, was not completed by HMA Dockyard at Williamstown until 1950, and sister ship HMAS Tobruk, built at Cockatoo Island Dockyard in Sydney, was not completed until the following year. The only difference between these ships and those planned for the Royal Navy was a distinctive funnel cowl fitted to both ships.

the Australian battles had 2 x 5 torp tubes adn the UK version has 2 x 4 tubes and were more heavily armoured than the english battle class.

I posted on this in ship development a while ago and it was withdrawn and then the HMS jutland was brought out, as wargaming seems to develop the english line at the expense of the commonwealth line.

While the commonwealth navies had some english ships, heres a tip, why not enable the commonwealth navy ships to have HE ammunition in the game as a selling point. !!!
