US Navy Birthday: A Decal and the USS Cowell to celebrate!

Download Wallpaper:

On October 13th 1775, the Continental Fleet was created by the 13 colonies that separated from Great Britain. When it was first created, this fleet consisted of only a few ships that went on to battle with British ships. Today, the US Navy is the world’s largest navy in terms of ships and naval aircraft.

The USS Cowell is available for Golden Eagles!

When: From October 13th (11:00 GMT) until October 16th (07:00 GMT).

Where: US > Bluewater fleet > Premium vehicles.

About the ship

The USS Cowell is a tier III Destroyer that is armed with 10 x 40 mm Bofor cannons as well as 7 x 20 mm machine guns which are certainly deadly to enemy boats as well as aircraft. The meaty side of this ship though is its 5 x 127mm/38 Mk.12 main caliber guns, capable of striking a devastating blow to enemy boats and destroyers!

“Famous Ships: USS Missouri” decal


“We’re all gonna die…Just not today”

Glad to have the legendary Missouri decal! Small but cool event!


Ah yes, the BOFOR cannon


“Mighty Mo” sounds better to me, but that’s just a personal preference :)


I think Mighty Mo is the more common nickname, too. My grandfather was part of a security detail aboard the Missouri when the Japanese delegation signed the surrender documents and he always referred to the ship as “Mighty Mo.” So that’s good enough for me.


It’s OK guys, Gaijin will get the nickname right the next time they release another never-built Russian ship

Now that’s pretty unfortunate…

Not what you said, but the mistake that they’ve made.

Those wallpapers are art!

It’s not a mistake, apparently that was the nickname it was given when it was recommissioned in 86.

Why tf Cowell costs 3 times as much as other 4.7 ships??

What a joke.

unfortunality its the same with all objects which are only available a limited time. They are all much more expensive as comparable regular premiums.
