Update 0.10.10, destroyer Delny and changes in USSR Tech Tree

Soviet Tier X destroyer Delny has been added to the game for testing. At the beginning of 2022, she will replace Khabarovsk in Soviet Tech Tree.


Delny is a project of a Tashkent-class destroyer leader that was improved taking experience gained in warfare into account. She differs from her prototype in the composition of her torpedo armament and more advanced artillery systems, which are of a post-war design. The ship is armed with six 130 mm guns mounted in three twin turrets, has solid armor protection for a destroyer, and is equipped with efficient torpedo armament.

At the beginning of 2022, Delny will replace Khabarovsk in the Tech Tree. She is a more logical development of the branch concept and is similar in gameplay to Tashkent, while not having the same big difference in characteristics with the branch as Khabarovsk. The most significant difference from Tashkent will be the improved armor of the ship.

After the replacement of the ships, the following changes will be made to the Destroyer Khabarovsk:

  • Khabarovsk will become a Special ship - The cost of the ship's post-battle service will be decreased. You will be able to assign commanders from other Ships of the same nation without penalties and retraining. Current commanders will keep their specialty.
  • The ship will be added in Armory for Coal.
  • Khabarovsk will remain on the accounts of its owners. If the ship was researched but not bought, sold, or the branch was reset, she will be invoiced to the player's account.
  • The ship will keep its unique upgrade and any purchased permanent camouflages. If permanent camouflage Type 20 was not bought - it will be credited.

All players who own any permanent camouflage for Khabarovsk will receive the Type 20 permanent camouflage for Delny. The ship herself can only be obtained after researching and purchasing it in the tech tree.

Permanent Camouflage for Moskva

In update 0.9.5, the branch of Soviet cruisers saw a similar change in the tech tree, when Moskva was replaced by A. Nevsky. As part of those changes, players who owned permanent camouflages for the cruiser Moscow did not receive any permanent camouflages for A. Nevsky.

Now the rules for crediting camouflages when replacing ships in the Tech Tree have changed, and we decided to credit additional camouflages to the owners of the cruiser Moskva.

All players who had any permanent camouflages for Moskva on their accounts at the time of the release of Update 0.9.5 will receive the Type 20 permanent camouflage for A. Nevsky within a week after the release of Update 0.10.9. Those who already have the Type 20 camouflage will be compensated with 5000 doubloons.
