World of Warships

Supertest: Pan-Asian Tier VIII Destroyer Siliwangi

The Skoryy-class were the first class of destroyers built after the Second World War by the Soviet Navy. In total, 70 ships were built between 1949 and 1953 with some ships being transferred to other nations such as Poland, Egypt or Indonesia.

The Project 30bis (Soviet designation of the class) were derived from the Ognevoi-class or Project 30. Compared to the Ognevoi, the ships were larger with better sea-keeping performances and also presented a better endurance.

The 70 ships were split into 4 groups. The 16 ships of the Baltic Fleet with all of their names starting with S, the 18 ships from the Black Sea Fleet with their names starting with B, The 18 ships of the Northern Fleet with their names starting with O and finally the 18 ships of the Pacific fleet with their names starting with a V.

The Volevoy (Volitional) was transferred to the Indonesian Navy and was renamed KRI Siliwangi in 1964.

In World of Warships, the Siliwangi is a bit of a mix between the Lo Yang with her Hydroacoustic Search, the Ognevoi with the hull and the Pan-Asian Destroyer with the Deepwater torpedoes and Smoke Generator.

The armor

Siliwangi.JPG

The Siliwangi’s armor is the standard protection of tier VIII destroyers. The hull is 19 mm thick and the superstructure is 13 mm thick.

As for the turrets, they are protected by 8 mm of armor.

Personal opinion

For now… I’m not impressed. The first problem, these are stock Ognevoi guns so no improved ballistic. Second, it’s an Ognevoi hull and even after all the buffs, I remember how much of a pain the tier VIII Ognevoi was to grind due to the poor firepower and the slow torpedoes.

Now… it does have the Lo Yang Hydroacoustic Search and the Pan-Asian torpedoes and Smoke Generator buuut… I am not sure if it will be able to compensate for the downsides of the ship itself.

I will just give credits to the camouflage that is quite cool looking.

    1. Well turns out that it got banned despite us having the authorization to from WG.

      In the end, the come back of the 3D models was sadly short but we are trying to find a solution.

  1. The mishandling of Soviet (and ex-Soviet) DDs continues. This should be a Tier VII. Ognevoi should’ve stayed at VI in the Soviet line split, followed by Smelyy at VII, Udaloi nerfed into VIII and Spokoinyy at IX.
