HMCS Huron - Commonwealth Tier VII Destroyer 1943


flagshipicon HMCS Huron - Commonwealth Tier VII Destroyer 1943

A Tribal-class destroyer built for the Canadian Royal Navy. Unlike the British ships of the series, which entered service before the outbreak of World War II, she received enhanced anti-aircraft armament due to the abandonment of one of her main battery mounts.

HMCS Huron Commemorative Flag.
Tobacco cultivation occupied an important place in the traditional culture of the Hurons, one of the indigenous peoples of North America. The flower of this particular plant is depicted on the emblem of destroyer Huron, named after this people.
Key Features:
Huron is armed with six 120 mm guns with a good rate of fire and powerful shells for the caliber. The arcing trajectory of the main battery guns will facilitate firing at targets from behind island cover, but make it difficult to hit enemies at extreme ranges. Huron is also equipped with a quadruple torpedo launcher that deals high damage and has the ability to launch torpedoes one by one, though they have a rather long reload time. The ship has superior engine settings that allow it to accelerate very quickly and is, moreover, equipped with an Engine Boost consumable with a long action time. The rest of its arsenal of consumables is made up of a Hydroacoustic Search with a rather high detection range for a destroyer and Repair Party. The ship notably lacks a Smoke Generator.

Canadian Home Fleet Destroyers Camouflage, 1943–1944.
At the end of 1942, a single camouflage scheme was adopted for destroyers entering service under wartime emergency shipbuilding programs. In accordance with the pattern, the main part of the hull and superstructure of the ship was painted white or a similar color. In certain places, wedges of darker shades with more or less the same outlines were applied. Besides this, about two-thirds of the hull's length, starting from the stern, had a strip, usually of a darker color.
This camouflage scheme used standardized colors of several shades of gray, blue, or green. Gradually, in 1943–1944, other destroyers of the Home Fleet, including those that were part of the Royal Canadian Fleet, received the same coloring pattern. A distinctive feature of HMCS Haida and HMCS Huron, painted in accordance with this scheme, was the presence of three oblique white stripes on their sides.
