I have a question for wows dev. As i read on wiki in 1940 1941 all J,K,N British build destroyer have their aft torpedo launcher remove how come the Gadja Mada an ex-N destroyer still have 2x5 set ? Even as built N class only has 1x5 (as wiki said). Can anyone have more trusted source than wiki about this ?

Long story short, the ship Van Galen and Tjerk Hiddes was bought by Dutch government when they were still at the dockyard.  then the RNN (Royal Neatherland Navy) decide to remove 4 inch gun which was to be replaced by a 21'' torpedo mount.

 

Bellow is Replica of HNLMS Tjerk Hiddes in Dutch Museum, you can clearly see the 2 Torpedo launcher and the Penant Number (G16)
