World of Warships 0.7.4 Supertest: Argentinian Cruiser Nueve de Julio

World of Warships 0.7.4 Supertest has introduced what will be the first Argentinian Cruiser: Nueve de Julio. For now, it will stay indefinitely side by side with other US Cruisers with the name USS Boise until Wargaming is ready to release the Pan-American branch to the game.

USS Boise (CL-47) was a light cruiser of the Brooklyn class in the United States Navy. The cruiser was named for Boise, the capital city of the state of Idaho. Commissioned in 1938, she saw extensive service during World War II, taking part in fighting in the Mediterranean and Pacific theatres. Following the war, the ship was decommissioned in 1946 and lay idle until sold to Argentina in 1951. Renamed Nueve de Julio, the ship remained in service with the Argentinian Navy until 1978, after which she was taken to Brownsville, Texas and scrapped in 1983.

    1. I don’t think an Argentinian tech tree will be released at all, but a Pan American is more likely. And from what I’m gathering (info) seems to be more than Cruisers 😀

      1. Missiles would be highly unlikely but Alouette III helicopters as spotting aircraft might not be as much of a stretch. Would also be interesting if they functioned differently than regular spotter planes, like maybe having longer duration but orbiting closer to the ship.

        At any rate I wonder why they’re using 9 de Julio instead of General Belgrano for this.

        1. Well, the Sea Cat are pretty short-range missiles; basically they have range of 5 km max, so they are basically very accurate short-range AA.

        2. I’m trying to find a delicate way of saying “because the RN has torpedoes, and Argentines have knives,” but I’m just not quite coming up with anything. I guess I’ll have to just be blunt about it, then.

          They’re not going to step in a minefield by using General Belgrano, because JFC ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Every time she appeared in game she’d be an instant target for every Royal Navy torpedo in the battle, and then you’d have a howling mob of pissed-off Argentines.

          WG wants to gain customers in Latin America, not piss them off.

  1. Pan America has a lot of ship to offers.
    There is a widespread belief that Latin American only have second ships (such as 9deJulio). But they also have a lot of unique ships. Build specially for these countries.

    A Latin tre could go like these

    CL
    1 Humaita
    2 Bahia
    3 O’ higgins
    4 ?
    5 Almirante Brown
    6 La Argentina
    7 Grau
    8 Vickers Venezuela mk24
    9 Vickers Venezuela mk26
    10 Vickers 1124 A

    DD
    2 Catamrca
    3 Serrano
    4 Duarte
    5. Antioquia
    6. Amazonas
    7. Greenhalg
    8. Nueva Esparta
    9. Williams
    10. 20 de Julio (this will be a beast)

    BB
    3 Minas Gerais
    4 Rivadavia
    5 Latorre
    6 Riachuelo

    CV
    25 de mayo
    and various argentine proyects)

    Also there are a lot of design abaible to make premiuns. from tier 2 to 10

    1. 20 de Julio is reason enough to have a Pan-America tech tree. That’s a Tier 10 that anybody with the slightest interest in gunboat DDs would grind the line out for.

      1. I see you are a man who appreciate rate of fire Cal 😉
        You would also enjoy Williams and Nueva Esparta probably

        1. May be if we equip them with argentine corsairs. After all is joint tree.

          Anyway Southamericna carriers are really a long way into the future. First weneed to see english carrier tree.

    2. You have forgotten at least three important vessels: Cruiser Tamandaré, former USS St. Louis (CL 49); CV Minas Gerais, former HMS Vengeance (R71) – Colossus class; and the CV São Paulo, former MN Foch (R99) – Clemenceau Class.

      1. Tamandare was actually my first choice for the tier 7. But Helena is going to be in the US CL line so I choose something different. Nevertheless it fits tier 7 well.

        The Brazilian carriers i didnt know what to do. Both had an issue. The airfract they operated were too modern for the game.
        Anyway they could be in the game, but somebody with more carrier experience and able to speak portuguese could do a better apreciation of the way to implement it

        1. Thx for the reply, buddy, I appreciate that.
          Yes, the Airplanes would be a problem. In the second war, the Brazilian pilots flew a lot on the P-47D. But in terms of naval aviation, WG would have to use its creativity, but certainly using American aircrafts like the Grumman F6F Hellcat IMO.

    3. I toyed a bit with the idea of combined minor maritime powers tree…

      The BB list looks like that:

      Tier 3 – Espana (Spain)
      Tier 4 – Viribus Unitis (Austria-Hungary)
      Tier 5 – Rio de Janeiro (Brasilia, those who became eventually RN Agincourt)
      Tier 6 – Latorre (Chile)
      Tier 7 – Vicker’s “Richauello” (Brazil) with 5 x 2 x 15-inch guns.
      Tier 8 – british proposal of 35000-ton battleship for Turkey, 1936. It was assumed to be more lightly armored version of KGV with twelve 14-inch guns.
      Tier 9 – Spanish version of “Littorio”, with DP secondary artillery (the Spain actually wanted to build a pair of them under license)
      Tier 10 – well… currently nothing)

      1. I think there is enought material to make both a panamerica battleship line and a paneuropean battleship line.

        For Paneuropa
        3- España
        4- Viribus Unitis
        5- Sultan Osman-ı Evvel (agincourt again)
        6- Erzat monarch
        7- turkey KGV
        8 – spanish Littorio
        9- empty
        10- empty

    1. Rio de Janeiro / Agincourth is a good choice from a premiun tier 5. But it can go for 3 different countries. In the meantime i choose Latorre. But We can put rio de janeiro as premiun tier 5
