Tech Tree Ship Review

Tier I UK Cruiser Black Swan

"Wargaming, why you take my AP away"

"Lifeboats, your gonna need em."

 

         Where shall we start, where shall we start, you may be wondering, why am I writing a review about a tin can at Tier I. I am doing this because I find low tiers fascinating. The pew pews that pass for guns, and the AA that has no use. I could go on and on and on.                

     So, where was I, ah yes. The Black Swan, the ship that suffered from the loss of AP, the bote at Tier I that has flak guns. The Black swan is peculiar because it used to shoot AP and has six rapid firing 102 mm pew pews. 

ARMOR 

NOPE   NOPE   NOPE   NOPE   NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE NOPE  NOPE  NOPE  NOPE   NOPE

I WILL SAY ONE MORE TIME

NOPE

FIREPOWER

Mount:102 mm/45 QF Mark XIX

Alpha Strike: 750 Hitpoints

Initial Velocity: 850 m/ Sec

Rate of Fire: 10 Shots a min

Max Range: 8.7 km

180° Turn Time: 18 sec

Max Dispersion: 80 m

Chance of Fire: 6%

Traverse Speed: 10° Sec

Sigma: 2.00 

Shell: HE 35lb Practice

        There is something interesting about the Black Swan's firepower. The ship used to shoot AP but WG brought down the nerf hammer on them. The 3x2 mounts are the most firepower a ship has at Tier I. It always for funsies when you machine gun a bot or baby seal. Fire chance, meh. But the reload speed of 6 sec is nice. Especially yolo bots at lower tiers.    

 

 

                                                                                                        Maneuverability                                                                                                                  

Horsepower:4,300     

Max Speed: 19 knots

Fast, but not. The Black Swan is not a zoom zoom. You can get where you are going with some ease. Islands is small though. 

 

Summary

 

 

 

Overpowered

I like this review, but more detail and windout on the ship would possibly be better imo. Otherwise, solid effort, I rate 7/10.

Huh!  I looked you up and you weren't joking!   Very cool, and by that I mean you looked to have found what you enjoyed and played it a ton.  Pretty much what a game is for IMO.

Nice review. I still remember when RN line came into the game and for weeks tier I was Black Swan Cup.

 

Tier I ships are strange, as the russian one, mounts the same turrets as Tashkent...
