[[Ship:|]] — N/A promo premium Tier  N/A.

The Black Swan-class sloops — the most numerous ships of this type in the Royal Navy during World War II — were intended for escorting and guarding convoys. They had a rather moderate speed, but outgunned their foreign counterparts in terms of firepower and rate of fire.

All British ship branches originate with the svelte, nimble Black Swan.

Pros:

  • Most guns of all Tier I ships.
  • Highest damage per salvo of all Tier I ships.
  • Many hit points.
  • Low detectability range.
  • Decent shell speed and arcs.
  • Very good maneuverability.
  • Good acceleration and deceleration.

Cons:

  • Relatively no armor like other Tier I ships.
  • Slowest Tier I ship (together with Bougainville and Chengan).
  • Longest reload time of all Tier I ships (together with Erie).
  • Lowest shell damage of all Tier I ships.
  • Low chance of causing a fire with one shell.
  • Short firing range.

Research

Like all Tier I ships, Black Swan has no researchable upgrades.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

The recommended upgrade for ' is as follows:

Commander Skills

While Basic Firing Training is a great Tier 1 skill for Black Swan commanders, it is not valuable again until Tier IV or V. Captains may wish to invest in Basics of Survivability instead and then redistribute the commander skill points later on.

Consumables

As a Tier I ship, she cannot mount any premium consumables and has access to only the Damage Control Party consumable.

Camouflage

Type 1, 2, or 5 camouflage can be equipped for credits; Types 2 or 5 are recommended at a minimum to reduce the accuracy of incoming shells.
