WoWS Info – 18th October 2017

ST, AA mechanics

Ship detectability while using AA guns is always equal to the maximum range of those guns. This change will eliminate the situations wherein the ships with low detectability range can fire at planes without being spotted.

ST, German destroyer T-61, tier VI.

You have repeatedly asked for a german premium-DD…. and here it is. The “Flottentorpedoboot 1940” was actually not completely german – it was built upon dutch designs and, after the fall of the Netherlands, it was built in local dockyards. Because of its large water displacement and strong armament, the T-61 was much more a fleet destroyer than a torpedo boat. Soon you will be able to see her in-game.

Hitpoints – 14 700
plating – 10-16 mm
Main battery – 4х1 128 mm
Firing range – 11.6 km
HE damage – 1500
AP damage – 3000
Reload time 4 s
180 degree turn time – 22.5 s
maximum dispersion – 102 m
HE and AP initial velocity – 830 m/s
Sigma – 2
Torpedo tubes – 2х4 533 mm
torpedo range – 8 km
torpedo speed – 65 kt
reload time 68 s
maximum damage – 13 700
Maximum speed – 35 kt
Turning circle radius – 600 m
rudder shift time – 3.6 s
Surface detectability – 6.8 km
air detectability – 3.8 km
Detectability after firing main guns in smoke – 2.6 km.

All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers.

ST, French destroyer Aigle, tier VI.

There are already cruisers in the french tech tree and the battleships are still in development. It’s now time for us to show you a destroyer ! L’Aigle served in the french navy until it was scuttled in Toulon in November 27 1942. Jump into the battle with your 139mm guns and show off your might!

Hitpoints – 17 000
plating – 10-16 mm
Main battery – 5х1 139 mm
Firing range – 12.8 km
HE damage – 1000
AP damage – 2600
Reload time 4.8 s
180 degree turn time – 18 s
maximum dispersion – 111 m
HE and AP initial velocity – 700 m/s
Sigma – 2
Torpedo tubes – 2х3 550 mm
torpedo range – 7 km
torpedo speed – 57 kt
reload time 77 s
maximum damage – 18 400
Maximum speed – 36 kt
Turning circle radius – 680 m
rudder shift time – 4.1 s
Surface detectability – 7.5 km
air detectability – 4.3 km
Detectability after firing main guns in smoke – 3.1 km.

All stats are listed without crew and upgrade modifiers.

  1. Even if the Aigle has the wrong number for he damage, it will probably be the worst premium destroyer in the game. 700m/s will make the Americans shells look fast. Coupled with its meh torpedoes, I don’t think there will be many buyers. T-61 on the other hand, will replace the gaede with the improved reload on the guns(unless gaedes 12.8cm get a rate of fire improvement at the same time).

  2. I hope the HE damage on the Aigle is a mistake. Looking at her stats, it seems to me that WG tries to force a Minsk/Leningrad style of gameplay to this ship… but in tier 6.
    Maybe that’s why they’ve put submarine torpedoes on her, the 24V, instead of the 23DT that is already on the French cruisers (the one with 9km range and 60 knots speed)

  3. Aigle is odd. Second-largest caliber for a destroyer (surpassed by Gaede/Z-23 with the 150mm), very slow shell speed, worse HE than the Germans (and AP does not compensate), very good firing range, and torps that have subpar range and speed but hit ridiculously hard (better damage than Fubuki/Hatsuharu, maybe deepwater torps?), and huge healthpool.

    At first I ignored it, but if French smoke lasts long enough and it comes out bundled with a 10pt captain, I might buy it.
