Howdy Sailors!

 

So I watched a U-boat documentary last night on PBS ( it was about the XXI aka type 21 class U-boat) and I started pondering about German torpedoes. Now I know I maybe jumping the gun here because with the exception to that 1 DD on the RU server (seriously WG why didn't the Na get a chance to obtain this thing we spend way more money anyways!:unsure:) we don't have German DDs as of yet. But my mind wont rest until some of the questions are answered, so I'll list them below for you.

 

What types of German DD's can we expect WG to be adding? ( please give forum links, website links, and or pictures if able)

 

Does Germany have enough DDs that existed to make a complete tree? and if not what ships would WG put in to fill the gaps?

 

Will their torpedoes have longer ranges than the current 6 km that German cruisers and Tirpitz have?

 

Were German U-boat torpedoes compatable with DDs and if so could this mean we might have some torpedoes with different functions?

 

 anyways, hope to hear your answers/feed back!

 

until next time I'll C'ya on the Sea!:honoring:

plenty of narvik types to choose but maybe have to go a little further into the prototype dds if they had any or it would most likely be more of the same wit ha few upgrades or maybe they will give em enough buffs to compete against there other dds

I don't know what you're talking about "with the exception to that 1 DD on the RU server (seriously WG why didn't the Na get a chance to obtain this thing we spend way more money anyways!" The clients are practically the same, we have all the ship-models and what-not that all the other servers have in our client.

 

Please clarify.

I cannot find any German DDs on warships today, on any server, for all time, with any number of battles. Nor can I find one on the wiki.

 

Are you, by chance, thinking of the Polish DD Błyskawica?

back when Alpha rewards were being handed out someone posted a picture of a German DD that the RU server testers got along with their Iwaki Alphas. Z-17 I think it was called? it looks like a cross between the Gremy and a Mahan but was tier 4?:amazed:

Google search pulls up nothing on the matter, had to be a fake.

The Z-17 was a specific german destroyer built in 1936, but it doesn't sound like something we'd see in game. Both as something added so early (german ships as an alpha reward, well before germany was in the ui, even with extended tech tree mods). It doesn't follow the game's naming conventions, either.

There is no Narvik-Class in any clients, data-miners would've picked it up long ago.

 

I probably would've noticed also.

Torpedoes that go in one direction are hell enough.. what you suggest is madness.

​Keep in mind that the G7e needed to be fired with the engines turned off.

I'd rather they just implement torpedo gyros.

My lungs...

 

One thing I will not rest until we have is the 1934 class destroyer. 

*Totally not cause I'm a huge nerd for Z3, despite my hatred of kancolle* 

 

I can see tier 6 or lower for them. But they're such an old design that possibly tier 5? But they'd be the only destroyer at that tier with 5 turrets. 

An image has already been linked above it seems.

Everything I have read about German Destroyers was that Hitler hated them, and wanted more U-Boats, so there designs were dreadful and many were cancelled on the drawing boards as they were not considered sea worthy. So I ask do you really want German DD's.?????:(
