Orkan — European promo premium Tier VIII destroyer.

Poland-2.png
An "M"-class destroyer built for the Royal Navy, but transferred to the Polish Navy shortly after being commissioned. Despite similarities with Lightning-class ships, Orkan boasted stronger AA defenses which were reinforced at the cost of a reduced number of torpedo tubes.

Orkan was first released on 25 April 2020.

Signals

Orkan captains should equip Victor Lima (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +4% chance of causing flooding.) and India X-Ray (+1% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber above 160mm. / +0.5% chance of causing a fire for bombs and shells with a caliber below 160mm. / +5% to the risk of your ship's magazine detonating.) signals to maximize the fire chance of her main battery shells, as well as Sierra Mike (+5% to the ship's maximum speed.) to maximize her ability to disengage when needed. November Foxtrot (-5% reload time on all consumables.) is also recommended in order to reduce the cooldown time of her Surveillance RadarWhile active, detects all enemy ships within the specified radius, disregarding obstacles such as smoke and terrain., as is India Delta (+20% to the amount of HP recovered when the Repair Party consumable is used.) to maximize her Repair PartyWhile active, restores a percentage of the ship's health points each second..

Note: Use of the Juliet Charlie signal makes detonation impossible.
