YAY a new DD cometh, the Lo-Yang.

I think it's going to be a tier 8 too, as it says it's an upgraded Sims, that will be fun. 

I imagine it will have USN torp range, invisibility, and guns.

 

Can anyone clarify, is this a Taiwanese or Chinese DD?. Thanks.

 

It will give us an idea on whether a future tree will be Taiwanese or Chinese.

It rocks the Republic of China flag, so it's for Taiwan :P. From the wording of the news post they made, it's part of a "brand new Panasia tech tree" so I'd expect a few name ships from other Asian navies to be in this tree eventually. Personally I'm a bit interested in the background flag they'll use in the tech tree as well as the names of captains :D:D.

 

It's literally the USS Benson, which proved to be very popular in ranked battles :D.

Yeah, looks like a premium Benson with ROC colours. That's going to be fun in ranked battles D:

 

Wonder how the CN players are taking it :v

Hoping that the upcoming Anshan (Gnevny) will keep them nice and calm :P.

 

Just found these two pictures on the WoWs Facebook page:

But hey, why is the Anshan tier VI? It's a Gnevny. Guess she has better turret traverse?

well there is a Warspite, it's RN and has been sold on a couple of occasions in the shop.

You mean post-WW2 era. Wherein the Soviet Union & U.S. are competing for ideology expansion.

Lo Yang was given by U.S. in 1950s. Anshan as well in 1950s by Soviet Union as part of transfer deal.

Oh, whoopee.

Another destroyer which we need like a hole in the head and, wowzer!, it's from Taiwan. Taiwan? For crying out loud!

So, what's this, WG....catering to the  Asian audience at the expense of those of us in Oceania?

Population talks loudest, I s'pose.

from what i know, LoYang has 6km torps...so, a C hull prem benson with 6km torp and 4 guns

not really worth it for me cuz i already have benson, and if LoYang's turrets are made of glass like bensons, then it's like playing a ruskie DD (4 little red X on ur ship is fun. really)

AnShan on the other hand is a grenvy with miku's 8km 60kt torps, dont know about the turret traverse but i'd imagine that it't would be better, this ship seems like a pretty good buy, especially  since i missed out on grem in CBT

Wrong guess, pally. Grow up.

And as for the rest of your cretinous response, I'll leave that lying in the gutter where it belongs.

Since these are essentially reskins, the development cost of these is fairly minimal. Couple that with a large player population in China and Taiwan etc. and we can see why these ships are pushed out this quickly. :D

dude, i'm chinese and i kinda take resentment to your comments, so what if the Aussie line isnt coming yet? these two ships are just reskins while aussie ship need to be built from scratch, so  it's perfectly normal that these ships are coming out first. and even the RN,RM,and MN havnt come out yet and i dont see the brits, Italians and french whining and lashing out

FYI. even as a chinese i want to see RN or MN lines more then these ships
