Tiger '59 is the newest Royal Navy light cruiser. It's a mini-Minotaur with Radar and Smoke, but much less DPM. She's a support ship.
The ship was given to me by Wargaming.

They should add a Tiger '69 with 420mm guns

Well, with Repulse coming in at T6, the original HMS Tiger might end up showing up as a T5 fast sniper battlecruiser like Kongo or Guilio Cesare,

The DPM is about ~80% of what the Edinburgh has.

It's the Minotaur on a Budget, except it's more expensive!

Aerroon, you crack me up. Is the British Navy a zoo? Well, yes. Yes it is. The next one should be the HMS Dung Beetle. I'm not going to say what ammo type it uses. Your imagination can fill in that gap.

Tiger, Lion, Glowworm, Unicorn, Beagle, Bulldog, Foxhound... You know, RN being a zoo does make some sense

They should have honestly gone with her sister HMS Blake, then there wouldn't have been any naming conflict with Tiger, the battlecruiser.

Also what became Tiger, Lion and Blake were a trio of uncompleted and mothballed Swiftsure-class hulls (Imagine a Crown Colony like Fiji, but the X-turret removed like on Mysore) and later finished and brought into service in the 50's when the remaining various Town, County and Crown Colony-class ships from the war were getting rather worn out and obsolete.

Also, speaking of the citadel, I'd love to know if the post-war ship designs really had silly raised citadel sections the way WG has modeled them on Neptune, Minotaur, Albemarle etc. or if they just straight up copied the shape of the belt because they're lazy. Since many designs like the Town-class and Crown Colony etc. have that same raised belt section, but not a raised citadel section behind it.

The turret traverse, maneuverability and pin point accuracy though. Damn!

So, the Tiger is kind of like a Cheshire? Both very squishy Royal Navy ships, although the Tiger doesn't have access to torps, but does have smoke, while Cheshire does not. But they're both housecats. The Tiger compared to the Belfast '43 is interesting, yet out of the two I prefer the Belfast. For the same tier, the Belfast gets HE as well as torps, yet it also gets hydro, something that's always useful to me.
Also in my experience, I think they like to target you mainly because they know the Tiger is a new ship, which in this case is also vulnerable to AP.

Wow, you pump out videos faster and faster, i like more vids👍👍👍

WG is calling this iteration as '59, I think, to keep the option open of bringing the WW1 CB Tiger into the game in the future...



4:33 regarding the name Tiger - the 1913 HMS tiger was one of the RN's battlecruisers - naming this ship "Tiger '59" might hint that WG might actually be thinking about an RN battlecruiser tech line, which will include the 1913 HMS Tiger...
One can hope... :)

I await HMS Hippopotamus with great anticipation. Although by some accounts, this ship might instead be called HMS Turkey.

lol the lyon killstealing the edinburgh was karma for your "kill securing" early in the match

If thats the 59 refit, what was she like before this abysmal performance?

Author — David Woods


If it had one more turret it would've made sense.

As built:
Four × QF 6 inch Mark N5 guns (2 × 2)
Six × 3-inch (3 × 2)

After conversion:
Two × 6-inch (1 × 2)
Two × 3-inch (1 × 2)
Two × Sea Cat GWS22 quad missile launchers

maybe this Ship is called Tiger 59 because WG wants to have the Option to put the Battlecruiser Tiger in the Game at some Point.
Imean we are getting another Battlecruiser the Repulse. So there might be more coming in the Future.

"Wait, TIger, the royal navy a zoo?"

This made my day xDDD

9:08 considering the average brain capacity you need for thunderer or conqueror I'd say they certainly have apes aswell in that zoo.
