Right, so watching the video posted on the portal made me go through the internet finding out potential ships, and I've found a few that has the right names, but upon looking at their backgrounds, I ruled them out as being either too advance, or too outdated. As a result, I think I've found the right boat.

 

Arethusa-class (ROCS Chung King)

 

There are a few possible loadouts

 

1. Original Configuration (

  • 6 × BL 6-inch (152 mm) guns
  • 4 × QF 4-inch (102 mm) single Mk V AA guns
  • 2 × 0.5-inch (12.7 mm) quadruple machine guns
  • 2 × 21-inch (533 mm) torpedo tubes (triple mount)
  •  

2. April 1941 Configuration

  • 3 × 6-inch (152 mm) dual guns
  • 2 × 2-pounder (40 mm) pom-pom quad AA guns
  • 3 × 20 mm Oerlikon single AA guns
  • 2 × 0.5 inch quadruple machine guns
  • 2 × 21-inch (533 mm) triple torpedo tubes
  •  
  • 3. December 1943 Configuration
  •  
  • 3 × 6-inch (152 mm) dual guns
  • 2 × 40 mm Bofors quad AA guns
  • 4 × 20 mm Oerlikon dual power-operated AA guns
  • 3 × 20 mm Oerlikon single AA guns
  • 2 × 0.5 inch quadruple machine guns
  • 2 × 21-inch (533 mm) triple torpedo tubes


I can't really tell how they would balance this as this ship would be at the very best, as tier 6.

Chao Yang class destroyer ex-Gearing class DD seems more likely to me, as it won't require a new model, just a re-skin. Not to mention a tier X would sell for more.

 

 

 

It is very unlikely WG will add a premium tier 10.

With her original configuration, she would fit quite well at tier 6.

Nope. Firstly, it's a tier 10, second it's been upgraded by the time it reached the Taiwanese Navy. Surface to surface missile ingame? Pfft

An Arethusa class premium will sell VERY well. First  it was the flagship of the Chinese navy (don't discount nationalism) and  its a British Cruiser we haven't yet seen in game...can't wait.

With two less barrels and one less torp tube a side compared to the Leander and Perth? I would have thought T5 a better fit.

Yes, lets put MORE dd clones in for a non existant navy, & lets just ignore the BIGGEST HISTORIAL NAVY OF THE WORLD SINCE THE 1800s....

re-skins are not new content no matter how many colors you give them.

This  is where everyone will jump in now & say Hood Hood,  but come on 1british ship every 2 or 3 years is  not really filling the cup is it?

?                     

 

  

Yet we get  french,  italian  ,nonexistant navies,   then people say ooh sick of whining about   

british    bb etc....

 

Come on, time for a proper british tree     ..

They could always buff fire rate, fire chance, accuracy etc

I do agree though she would be a better fit at Tier 5

They never received 'missiles' unless you include asroc. At least non in US service.
