Ning Hai-class cruiser were a pair of light cruisers (Ning Hai and Ping Hai) built for the Republic of China Navy before the outbreak of the Second World War... The lead ship of the class - Ning Hai, was built in Japan... Surprisingly.

Both ships were sunk by the Japanese, in defense of Kiangyin Fortress, Near Nanking. Then re-floated by the Japanese and re-commissioned as Ioshima (Ning Hai) and Yasoshima (Ping Hai). Served as escort ships and coastal defence ships. Both were later on sunk by American forces.

 

Enough with all the history. Now the armament! Because the class was designed in Japan. So the ships are equipped with Japanese weapons, respectively. 6 times 140 mm naval guns (also seen on Yubari-class). 4 times 533 mm torpedo tubes (2 each side). A number of 76 mm AA, 57 mm AA guns and machine guns.

Maneuverability... Is a massive disappointment because when you talk about a light cruiser, you expect top speed over 30 knots. Unfortunately, the Ning Hai doesn't have that kind of luxury. Their use of obsolete triple expansion engines, keeping the top speed of only about 21 to 23 knots.

 

So, basically, what you are looking at is a light cruiser with speed of a battleship. So, if this ship makes it into the game. What would it be like? A Chinese ship or a Japanese premium? I think this ship would likely to be a tier III or IV Premium/Reward/Gift Japanese cruiser, with the name Ioshima or Yasoshima. Consider her armament, quite powerful indeed, rivals the Yubari and Kuma. AA firepower is damn impressive too! But aside from that, her speed wouldn't allow her to do much.

Thank you for reading. :honoring:

First impression, looking at the funnel: "Oh!... It's a Japanese ship!"

Then start reading: "It's a bloody Chinese ship built by Japanese!"

Finally: "It's a bloody Japanese ship again..."

I also expect some chinese paper ships as well.

After all they were in the middle of modernising their navy when Japan knocked on the door again.

One would assume there were a couple of ship designs finished, since China wanted a rather large modern navy.

 

Also:

In case you needed some motivation to make threads about the other chinese ships (that existed). ;3

IIRC, the latest WG magazine said they're planning a Chinese tech tree so they could be working on this ship already. Probably a premium like the Polish destroyer since there's not enough viable ships for a complete regular branch.

I think Chinese (ROCN and PLAN) tech tree will only consist of premium ships. Because basically, the Chinese didn't have a proper Navy at that time. This game is different from WoT, they can't just throw a missile guided destroyer of the 50s or 60s in and call it a tier X.

No way in hell is it going to be even close to usable if it's implemented in the Ioshima / Yasoshima configurations XD

 

The Ioshima and Yasoshima configurations happened after the first sinking of both ships (By aircraft from Kaga). The hulls were recovered by the Japanese and refitted with only TWO single 120mm mounts and five triple 25mms each. Yeah, that's right. Two 120mms, which is less than any ship currently in the game. 

 

Since the Ioshima and Yasoshima in their configurations are pretty much useless, they'll probably be implemented as Ning Hai and Ping Hai instead.

 

@Sakeo Ninghai's suspiciously familiar hairstyle seems ironic when you remember that it was Kaga who helped sink her :p

lol, even they get a 52D class in a tier X match Chinese navy will still get rekt 

 missiles will explode mid air, cannon breach explode every time the ships fires a shot, the engine will caught on fire and explode once it's started. everything. will be exploded

not really, it's just a joke 

 actually it's real

 

I'd saw on news that exported Chinese Anti Ship missile missed all 8 (in salvo) shots after being fired to enemy missile boat lately 

 

 at least it's better than those jihad weapons

 

wait..... actually.... it's MADE IN CHINA :great:
