 ''Bermuda'' was commissioned in September 1941 and joined the Home Fleet for convoy escort duty. I n 1942, she participated in Operation Torch, returning to convoy duty on the UK-Gibraltar route. In 1943, ''Bermuda'' began anti-submarine patrols in the Bay of Biscay before joining operations in the Arctic through 1944. Under refit through early 1945, ''Bermuda'' was scheduled to join the British Pacific Fleet when the war ended. Post-war, ''Bermuda'' was assigned to the Eastern Fleet through 1947 when she was sent to the reserve until 1950. From 1950 to 1953, ''Bermuda'' served in the South Atlantic. She was then transferred to the Mediterranean in time to assist with the delivery of aid to earthquake victims in Greece, and was again placed in reserve in 1956, returning to the Mediterranean in 1958. She was finally decommissioned in 1962 and sold for scrap in 1965. ''Bermuda'' was commissioned in September 1941 and joined the Home Fleet for convoy escort duty.

Fiji — British Tier VII cruiser.

A further development of a multi-purpose cruiser ship for the Royal Navy. Despite the fact that the ship's displacement was limited by international treaties, she carried numerous rapid-firing main guns.

Player Opinion

Performance

If Tier VI's Leander is considered "settling in" to the back half of the British cruiser line, then the best advice for captains embarking aboard Tier VII's Fiji for the first time should be: buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Fiji maintains the branch's theme of 152mm main battery rifles, but moves up to mounting twelve of them in four triple-barrel turrets. As such, she is considerably up-gunned from Leander, and successors Edinburgh and Neptune boast identical configurations. At eight rounds per minute (a 7.5 second reload time), her main battery boasts the best rate of fire of all Tier VII cruisers, and she retains the 8.0 km maximum torpedo range of Leander’s upgraded torpedoes. Her unique mix of main battery and longer range torpedoes allow Fiji to hang in fights with equal-tier cruisers of other nations, and maintains her as a threat to enemy destroyers who wander too close.

First-time Fiji captains may think that she feels big for a light cruiser, and they're right. She has an increased beam over Leander, which allowed her designers to fit triple-barreled turrets on her hull. There's a subsequent increase to her detection radius, but she retains most of Leander’s handling characteristics; Fiji’s turning circle is tighter, and her rudder shift is — for all intents and purposes — the same. Her anti-aircraft suite is satisfactory if unremarkable, and is approximately on par with German counterpart Yorck.

Just like Leander, Fiji works best with friendly ships around. She's ideal for backing up allied destroyers, though can even cause significant damage to Battleships when given the right opportunities. Nonetheless, if kept in combat where she is able to maximize her strengths against enemy cruisers and destroyers, she is an exceptional ship in the hands of the right captain.

Pros:

  • Good main battery range (15.4 km fully upgraded).
  • Highly effective against enemy cruisers and destroyers.
  • Guns can devastate enemy battleships if stealth can be maintained.
  • Retains access to then Repair Party consumable.
  • Excellent main battery guns in a user-friendly layout.
  • Below average detection range (i.e. good stealth).
  • Excellent handling characteristics; quick rudder shift and tight turning circle.

Cons:

  • Even lighter armor than Leander; captains must make intelligent use of her consumables to get the most out of Fiji. She will evaporate under concentrated enemy fire.
  • Fairly ineffective against angled enemy battleships.
  • Anti-aircraft suite is merely average.
  • Though her maximum range is respectable, her shell velocity drops off sharply and makes landing hits difficult past medium range.

Research

Fiji’s stock range isn't bad for her guns; what she needs most is increased survivability. Invest experience points into Hull (B) first, then go for the Fire Control Systems module. The Torpedo module upgrade is nothing more than a small bump to her torpedo damage, and can be left for last or skipped entirely.

Optimal Configuration

Upgrades

Most Fiji captains will equip Main Armaments Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 1, Damage Control System Modification 1 in Upgrade Slot 4, and Steering Gear Modification 2 in Upgrade Slot 5. Only Upgrade Slot 2 offers real options: either AA Guns Modification 2 or Aiming Systems Modification 1. Either is a worthwhile upgrade, and is captain's choice.

Commander Skills

Level 1's Priority Target is a great skill for Fiji commanders, as it allows players to know when it is (theoretically) safe to expose their broadside in a turn without severe punishment. Level 2's best skill remains Expert Marksman, though Adrenaline Rush is a great place to spend points after picking up Concealment Expert. Superintendent is recommended at Level 3 given how dependent Fiji’s performance is on effective use of her consumables; Survivability Expert is also a strong choice as it buffs not only her health pool but the size of her Repair Party consumable. At Level 4, picking up Concealment Expert is first priority. Advanced Firing Training, Radio Position Finding, and Manual Fire Control for AA Armament are worthy of consideration later on; Manual Fire Control for AA Armament is a more attractive skill for subsequent ships in the line and is recommended if captains intend to move the commander to the next ship.

Consumables

Players can equip the following consumables on this cruiser: Damage Control Party, Repair Party, Hydroacoustic Search, and a choice between Smoke Generator, Spotting Aircraft, or Catapult Fighter.

Though given the choice between Smoke Generator, Spotting Aircraft, and Catapult Fighter, Fiji captains will want to stick with Smoke Generator given how lightly armored she is. Premium consumables are highly recommended across the board. Players looking to conserve credits (or doubloons) should stick with non-premium Hydroacoustic Search I, but are encouraged to equip both Damage Control Party II and Repair Party II.

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.

Players who wish to spend doubloons can equip Fiji with Type 17 camouflage that lowers her detection radius, reduces the accuracy of incoming shells, reduces her repair costs, and increases the amount of experience she earns.

Signals

Many of the enemy cruisers Fiji will run across in her games fire primarily high-explosive shells (such as Myoko and Shchors), so equipping the India Yankee signal is a good idea if it is available for use. Because she has Repair Party, it's also recommended to mount India Delta improve her survivability. Equal Speed Charlie London can be helpful in picking up useful module upgrades faster, such as the Fire Control System module (Mk VII mod. 2), which gives Fiji decent range at her tier.
