So what's the gimmick this time?

 

Fires neither HE nor AP but white flags?

 

Top speed at 30 knots but 40+ when running away from enemies? 

 

I just hope they don't do any of those silly gimmicks when it comes time for the RN BBs.

France have the fastest Destroyer in the world

 

Having speed of 45 knots and 5 of 138mm guns. 3 * 3 550mm torpedoes

Free French Navy, undergone refit on British controled harbur or America

Both Nation use Bofors so its not that strange

 

However British and American Bofors were Diffrent (a piece of trivia)

When American adopt it, they suprised that the Gun require lot of additional manpower to assamble

in their blueprint, there stuff like, bore here,then put screw it to this position, etc -> its like IKEA, another Sweden product lol

 

American Bofors assembled using less manpower, and using assembly line for Faster production (just like making car)

some source say, American Bofors is only have 40% comonality from the original

American version is regarded more supperior in many aspect

 

and Free French navy adopted wherever, their ship undergone a refit

Many resulted french ship have unique mashup of diffrent combination of allied System like American Air Radar, British Surface radar, American made Ammo fired from French gun system, all in one ship

very interesting navy

These must be modelled on the same philosophy as the Italian tanks in WW2. It's common knowledge that all Italian WW2 tanks that served in North Africa were built with 1 forward gear and 10 reverse gears! :D
