Eight (8) S-class destroyers, ordered by the British Admiralty under the War Emergency Programme, entered service in 1943 and 1944. Two ships of the series were transferred to the Royal Norwegian Navy and named Stord and Svenner. Destroyer Stord etched her name in history during the Battle off the North Cape. Norwegian torpedoes played an important role in sinking German battleship Scharnhorst. In June 1944, Stord supported the landing of troops in Normandy, after which she remained in active service for another 15 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.
