    Ship Discussion: HMS Galant

    First real British DD: HMS Galant at T6






    I'm sure our local paeDDophile will be thrilled

    A bit disappointed that it's not HMS Glowworm though

    With the current T7 MM, unless she's OP for her tier or very unique it'll not be very attractive to non-collectors.

    Though it would be very interesting if she could launch torps 1 by 1. Good against any bow in ships that spots the torps late.

    @ofi123 With this ship, Duca, De Grasse and Makarov being T6, Reddit is suspecting that next ranked season will be T6. Although with Hood and Kaga, it could be T7 as well.

    And yeah, I fully expect her to be able to launch her torps individually as it was part of the British tactics, which is why it was implemented on the RN CLs in the first place.

    Stats, courtesy of The Daily Bounce:








    Torpedo arcs seems pretty bad.

    @Mobius yeah, you'd have to show way too much of your ship. detection is good though.

    @polymorphine True, this actually allows Galant to stealth torp. Combined with the decent rudder shift, it will help allieviate the torps angles.


    And according to The Armored Patrol, turret B can rotate 360 degrees. Not that it's going to change much in the grand scheme of things, but it's always nice.

    Preview of Gallant by Flamu:

    Seems like a decent gunboat/torpedo boat hybrid. I'm getting Blyska vibes from it.

    "Decent" is one word for it. But imo "bland" is a better word. It doesn't have anything remarkable about it. It can do most things ok, but isn't great at anything. She's just... average.

    Imo the only reason to get her over any of the other premium DDs is if yu really want an HMS DD trainer ahead of time. Premiums are supposed to be unique/gimmicky in some way to differentiate them from normal DDs. Gallant... isn't.


    I always pull my weight. I just happen to be made of helium.

    I still prefer Anshan, imo it is a better buy plus it sclaes insanely hardcore with captain. Obviously it has a great downside of being pan-asian, but oh well
