Stord '43: Tier VII European (Norwegian) Destroyer 1943 (13.4 D-Day Event)


flag shipicon Stord '43: Tier VII European (Norwegian) Destroyer 1943

Eight S-class destroyers, commissioned by the British Admiralty as part of the War Emergency Programme, were launched in 1943 and 1944. Two vessels from this series were transferred to the Royal Norwegian Navy, receiving the names Stord and Svenner. The destroyer Stord distinguished herself in the Battle off the North Cape, where Norwegian torpedoes were instrumental in the sinking of the German battleship Scharnhorst. In June 1944, Stord played a supportive role in the Normandy landings and continued to serve actively for another fifteen years.

The naval ensign of Norway, depicting a blue and white Scandinavian cross against a dark red background, differs from the country's national flag only by its special shape with three tails. This design for the flag was officially approved in 1905 and has been used without changes ever since.

Key Features

  • Stord '43 is an artillery destroyer, and while she is armed with only 4 guns in single turrets, they have good damage per minute and accuracy. Unlike Stord, she has access to AP-shells and her torpedoes have shorter range but higher speed and deal more damage.
  • The ship has a low HP pool, pretty bad concealment and mediocre speed.
  • She has access to Smoke Generator but lacks Engine Boost. Instead, she has 1 charge of Specialized Repair Party that restores considerable portion of HP in a short period of time. 


  • Artillery Strength: Utilize the good damage per minute and accuracy of the main guns. Remember, it has access to AP-shells for increased damage potential.
  • Torpedo Tactics: Take advantage of the torpedoes’ higher speed and damage. However, be mindful of their shorter range.
  • Survivability Skills: Use the Specialized Repair Teams wisely, as it restores a considerable portion of HP quickly, but you only have 1 charge.
  • Concealment Play: With poor concealment, stay aware of your visibility to enemies and use the Smoke Generator to hide when necessary.
