flagshipicon Jäger - European Austro-Hungarian Tier IX Destroyer 1917

In 1917, Austria-Hungary began working on a project to build a destroyer leader. A total of eight leaders and 12 destroyers were planned for construction. Draft designs were submitted by Blohm & Voss and Ganz-Danubius. Several projects were developed by the Austro-Hungarian Marine Technical Committee. One of the projects presented in 1917 provided for the construction of a 2,000-ton torpedo boat. The ship was to have been equipped with 6-inch main battery guns. However, with the end of World War I and collapse of Austria-Hungary, the destroyers were never built.
SMS Jäger Commemorative Flag
The ship is named after representatives of one of the types of infantry in the Austro-Hungarian army, the Tyrolean rifle regiments. A distinctive feature of their uniform was a black felt hat, decorated with a green ribbon, a plume of black feathers, and an emblem with a golden hunting horn and a Tyrolean eagle.

 WG Description
WG Description

Before the First World War, the Austro-Hungarian fleet had several 850-ton Tatra-class destroyers, in addition to which four similar ships were built in 1916-17. These forces were completely insufficient to face the Entente’s overwhelming fleets, and the ships themselves were outdated in design, so in 1917, work began on the project of a destroyer leader. In total, eight leaders and twelve destroyers of the new class were planned for construction. The German company Blohm und Voss and the Hungarian company Ganz-Danubius presented their sketches for the competition, in addition, several of their projects were developed by the Marine Technical Committee. One of them was the design of a 2,000 ton Torpedofahrzeug (torpedo ship) presented in October 1917. The ship was to be armed with six-inch main battery guns. She never appeared in reality, however, WG implemented her in our game. We also reflected one of the peculiarities of Austro-Hungarian destroyers' camouflage on the ship's standard permanent camouflage. In the autumn of 1915, an order was issued to change the black paint of the ships to a bluish-gray, but so as to make the destroyers less noticeable against the backdrop of the coast, the new layer of paint was to only be partially applied in order to preserve some black spots, thereby creating a kind of impromptu camouflage. 

Jäger is a stealthy torpedo destroyer. It has very low visibility and is armed with four triple-tube torpedo launchers with trademark "European" launch spreads: narrow and ultra-narrow. The torpedoes themselves are characterized by high speed and range, as well as fast reload, but low damage per torpedo.

The main battery is represented by three 150-mm guns with a short firing range and not the highest rate of fire. Jäger has a small amount of HP and weak anti-aircraft weapons as well. Available consumables: Repair Party and Engine Boost.
