flag Van Speijk - Dutch Tier IX Premium Cruiser 1939

In 1938, against the backdrop of international tensions, the Dutch Ministry of Defense decided to reinforce their Navy. The projects that appeared in 1939 were, in most respects, similar to the project of German warship Scharnhorst. For economic reasons, it was decided to reduce the size of the new ship. The government was inclined to pursue a project to build a 16,000-ton cruiser capable of running at 33 knots and carrying a main battery of 240 or 280 mm guns. In the end, however, to ensure sufficient armor protection, they had to make do with a smaller caliber—203 mm. If the project had been pursued further, the ship could well have received reinforced AA defenses by the end of World War II.

HNLMS Van Speijk Commemorative Flag
Naval Lieutenant Jan van Speijk blew up his ship to prevent the enemy from taking her, and this exploit became a highlight in the Dutch naval history. In 1833, a Royal Decree was issued proclaiming that as long as the fleet existed, one of its ships should be named Van Speijk to commemorate the hero.

Key Features:

The cruiser is armed with nine 203mm main battery guns which deal good damage per minute and an Airstrike (HE bombs) which has good range. The ship has a well-protected citadel and good concealment. However, her guns have a short firing range and her Airstrike has a long cooldown and a low number of charges.

The consumables are represented by Hydroacoustic Search, Defensive AA Fire and Repair Party with short cooldown in different slots.
