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.
