Hampshire Commemorative Flag.
The "Saxon crown" has been used as an English heraldic device since the early 20th century. This symbol dates back to the coins of King Æthelstan (10th century), which contained the first known depiction of the crown of an English monarch.
 
Key Features:
Hampshire is also armed with two quadruple torpedo launchers with the ability to single-launch. The ship has weak armor, but special engine settings similar to cruiser Minotaur — it can quickly accelerate. Hampshire is equipped with the Hydroacoustic Search and Defensive AA Fire consumables in different slots.

Historical Naming of County Class Cruisers
The historic counties of England — the famous "shires" — were created by the Normans in the 11th century to rationalize the administration of the kingdom, but their roots go back much further in time. These subdivisions made up the territorial mosaic of Britain and it is not surprising that from the 17th to the middle of the 19th centuries, the Royal Navy’s sailing ships of the line were often named after these counties — for example, there were three HMS Hampshire in quick succession of each other between 1653 and 1766.
 
In the era of armor and steam, this naming tradition returned — in the first 5 years of the 20th century, 16 armoured cruisers bearing the names of the counties of the United Kingdom replenished the British fleet at once. Among them was Hampshire (1905-1916) of the Devonshire class. It is likely that the political relevance of the topic played a role — at the end of the 19th century, Great Britain underwent a major territorial-administrative reform.
 
One way or another, since then it has been impossible to imagine the Royal Navy of the 20th century without ships of the "County" or "Counties" class: 15 heavy cruisers in the late 1920s and 8 guided missile destroyers of the 1960s carried these names on board. Among the latter was the second Hampshire (1963-1979). This county of southern England is especially significant because it houses one of the 4 Royal Navy shipyards — Portsmouth.
