World of Warships Supertest: Tier X British Destroyer Daring

3 min read

The Daring class was a class of eleven destroyers built for the Royal Navy (RN) and Royal Australian Navy (RAN). Constructed after World War II, and entering service during the 1950s, eight ships were constructed for the RN, and three ships for the RAN. Two of the RN destroyers were subsequently sold to and served in the Peruvian Navy (MGP). A further eight ships were planned for the RN but were cancelled before construction commenced, while a fourth RAN vessel was begun but was cancelled before launch and broken up on the slipway.

The Daring-class ships were both the largest and most heavily armed ships serving in Commonwealth navies to be classified as destroyers. They were also the last destroyers of the RN and RAN to possess guns as their main armament (instead of guided missiles), which saw use during the Indonesian Confrontation and the Vietnam War.

The Daring-class destroyers were in service in the RN and RAN from the 1950s to the 1980s. Following decommissioning, two RN Darings were sold to Peru, which operated one ship until 1993 and the other until 2007. One ship of the class is preserved: HMAS Vampire as a museum ship at the Australian National Maritime Museum.

  1. So, HMAS Vampire, which it’s currently at tier III, it’s actually a downgraded tier X dd??

  2. The Vampire in game was an ex Royal Navy destroyer built in the early 1930’s and transferred to the RAN. It served in the Scrap Iron Flotilla and was later sunk during WW2. Same name different ship.

    I hope we can have a Daring cl*** in game as Vampire II in a Commonwealth tree .

  3. No Australia loves reusing names
    Hmas Vampire in game was apart if scrap iron flaila and was a w cl*** dd
