Fwd 2021-07-29 HMS Armada (D14) incorrect naming/armament


Copy/paste these points and use them as a template:

# Circuit / Game Version 2.5.1.138 

 

# Description

HMS Armada (D14) is incorrectly named.  Her visual model and armament do not correspond to an early 1942 Battle like Armada, but instead to a 1943 Battle-class destroyer.  Recommendation is for her armament to either be fixed to that of HMS Armada (D14) upon her launching (quad launchers instead of quintuple, losing a gun and a complete AA overhaul), or her name to be changed to "1943 Battle-class destroyer, HMS Matapan (D43) (1947)" (which would only require a change of the in game name).  HMS Matapan (D43) is chosen due to the good quality image of it from above in its original configuration, enabling easy confirmation of the facts in the bug report, as well as historical significance (the last Battle-class in UK service).

Proof that the 1942 Battle-class never had any main armament other than two twin 4.5" forward, and that their secondary layout is incorrect to Armada as in game (pages 8-10):

Visual proof that HMS Armada (D14) did not have a 4.5" aft:

Confirmation the 1943 Battle-class had the 4.5" aft and 10 torpedoes compared to a 1942's 8, as Armada has in game but did not have in reality (pages 21-22):

Proof that the primary, AA and torpedo armament of a 1943 Battle-class all conform to that shown in game, while the 1942 does not (page 56):

HMS Armada's stat card in game; as you can see, her primary, AA and torpedo armament are all incorrect for an early 1942 Battle-class, while they fit a 1943 exactly.
