L'Aventurier: Tier VIII French Destroyer 1940 (CT 13.5 Changes)

Destroyer Le Hardi

flag shipicon L'Aventurier: Tier VIII French Destroyer 1940

This destroyer is essentially an enlarged version of Le Hardi, featuring upgraded anti-aircraft and torpedo armament. The Spanish Civil War highlighted the heightened threat to ships posed by aviation. Taking this into account, in the late 1930s and early 1940s, consideration was given to reworking the Le Hardi project to enhance the power of her air defense systems.
