flag HMS Renown '44 - British Tier VII Premium Battlecruiser 1916

A fast battlecruiser armed with guns similar to those placed on Queen Elizabeth-class battleships. In the 1930s, the ship underwent serious upgrade to reinforce her armour protection system and AA defences.

Renown '44 Commemorative Flag.
The classical symbolism combines the torch of fame with the laurel wreath of victory in reference to the ship's name and motto: 'Antiquae Famae Custos' (Guardians of Ancient Renown).

Key Features:

  • The ship has many similarities with her counterpart, the British researchable battleship Renown. She has improved acceleration dynamics, high firing accuracy, AP shells effective against lightly armoured targets, torpedoes with turning mechanics, and an improved Repair Party, as well as the Engine boost and Defensive AA Fire consumables. At the same time, she has weak armour and a low salvo weight.
  • However, the ship's gameplay is slightly different from the researchable Renown. Renown '44 is mainly a close-range battleship. In addition to 8 torpedoes with good damage, the ship is equipped with numerous secondary battery guns. In addition, it has a Hydroacoustic Search consumable in the same slot as Defensive AA Fire, which makes playing more comfortable at close range. However, this consumable has a small number of charges.
  • Renown as of 1944 is less suited to the progression of the British battleship branch than her researchable counterpart. The Renown '44, if placed at Tier VI in the branch, would surpass even the Tier VII Rooke in terms of AA and secondary guns. So, WG are adding the Renown '44 in a state she was historically a large part of her lifespan, as a separate premium ship. What's worth mentioning is that she will actually be obtainable as a  New Year Dockyard Ship intermediate reward.
