If HMAS Sydney gets added as a premium, she'll need a worthy adversary.

Well it couldn't be the Emden if the keyword was "worthy", Emden was a commerce raider, not a warship outfitted for fleet engagements, it's fight with Sydney was very one sided.

 

However, they could probably make good low tier premiums.

Armed Merchant Raiders or Q-ships? Uhhh. There's no place for them in the regular game, unless they put them in a convoy escort mode or something. And even if that's the case, I don't see them being player-controlled.

The other Sydney, mate. The D-48 from WW2. It got sunk by a commerce raider, Kormoran. Now that would be a worthy adversary (ha ha).

 

SMS Emden you're talking about was proper light curiser from WW1, not a auxiliary, and engaged a different HMAS Sydney.

Commerce raiders or armed merchants would fall into the same basket as submarines. Not fit for fleet operations.

Heh, should get the Albany. That thing really is piss-poor lol

 

A number of the early USN Cruisers really do look like ferries from NYC with some guns slapped on them  :s
