Stord — European Tier VI destroyer.

With the outbreak of World War II, Great Britain started the mass construction of destroyers in batches of eight. As a rule, all of them had four single-gun mounts with 102–120 mm guns and one or two quadruple-tube torpedo launchers. Two of them were transferred to the Norwegian Navy and received the names "Stord" and "Svenner." Stord entered service in September 1943. In 1943 and 1944, she participated in operations in the North Atlantic and escorted polar convoys. During the Battle of the North Cape, Stord was involved in sinking German battleship Scharnhorst. In 1944, the destroyer participated in covering the landings in Normandy, then returned to escorting convoys heading for the U.S.S.R. After the war, Stord became the flagship of the Norwegian Navy.

Stord was first released during patch 12.4.

The Ship

Tier VI Stord is a destroyer with a high rate of fire and a maneuverable hull, but she also has a small health pool, weak torpedoes, and she cannot fire AP ammunition.

With a top speed of 36.8 knots, Stord is able to keep up with most of her peers, but she lags behind the fastest destroyers at her tier. Her rudder shift time of 3 seconds and a tight turning circle of 590 meters combine to make her one of the most nimble ships at Tier VI. Stord has a base surface concealment of 7 km, that can be reduced to 6.3 km with the Concealment Expert skill. This is not the worst at her tier, but many other destroyers will still outspot her.

Unfortunately, her health pool is one of the lowest of all Tier VI destroyers. Her upgraded hull has 11,900 hit points, the same as Muavenet’s upgraded hull. Survivability Expert is necessary to bring her health to a useful level.

Stord retains her predecessor’s consumables — a Smoke GeneratorWhile active, generates a smoke screen that blocks line-of-sight for both enemies and teammates. and Engine BoostWhile active, increases a ship's speed by a fixed percentage.. The smokescreen is standard for a Tier VI destroyer, with a 20 second action time, 81 second dispersion time and three charges as standard, with a 160 second cooldown between uses. The Engine Boost provides an 8% boost to her top speed for 90 seconds, taking her up to 39.7 knots. This has four charges as standard, with a 90 second cooldown between uses.


Stord shares the same main gun battery as many mid-tier British destroyers, although she gains an improved reload but loses AP rounds. She boasts one of the highest HE DPM totals of the Tier VI destroyers, although her salvo weight is one of the lowest due to her small gun caliber. Her lack of AP rounds may not seem like a large drawback, but it does limit STORD’S tactical options when fighting lightly armored cruisers.

Her gunnery emphasizes short range duels, as her shells have a low initial velocity and quickly lose speed. This causes them to “float” as the range increases, which can make long range firing difficult against nimble targets. Although they are small caliber, her rounds have enough penetration to defeat the bow and stern plating of most cruisers. When engaging battleships, players will need to aim for the superstructure to cause direct damage.

Stord has an improved torpedo armament compared to Muavenet, with two quad launchers. An increased range of 7.5 km means they can be launched from stealth. However, despite these improvements she retains a relatively weak torpedo armament. They have the lowest flood chance and damage per torpedo among Tier VI destroyers; even with a faster than average reload of 75 seconds, STORD has one of the lowest torpedo DPM totals in her tier.


Like most Tier VI destroyers, Stord has fairly weak AA defenses. She may shoot down one or two aircraft when facing same tier carriers, but her anti-air defenses cannot keep her safe from a determined attack.


Stord drops a pattern of eight depth charges from her stern, similar to that of British destroyers. However, her depth charges deal less than half the damage of American or British ones, just 2400 damage for a direct hit. Multiple depth charges will be needed to sink a submarine, even with direct hits. To add to this challenge, Stord does not have a Hydroacoustic Search, so tracking submarines can be difficult.

Battle Performance

Stord’s gameplay centers around short range duels with enemy destroyers. Although she has good DPM from her main guns, her small health pool means players can find themselves outmuscled by dedicated gunboats. French and Russian destroyers in particular are capable of matching her damage output and have larger health pools, making them difficult targets to take down. If friendly support is not available, players are often best served by breaking contact and waiting for support before attempting to engage.

If players need to fight larger ships, then Stord’s best option is usually to use her rapid reload to try and set fires on her targets from the relative safety of a smoke screen. Her torpedoes can provide a deterrent despite their low damage, but they will not pose a serious threat to any healthy ships.
