? +The Nicholas is a welcome upgrade from the Clemson, and a very fun and strong destroyer for its tier. Compared to the Clemson, the Nicholas is a vast improvement in nearly every way. Perhaps the most conspicuous upgrade is the main battery, which previously on the Clemson was practically the same 102mm arnament found on the tier 2 American destroyer, the Sampson, including practically the samerange and rate of fire. For the Nicholas, not only has the caliber been buffed to 120mm and rate of fire buffed to a monstrous 12 RPM, the range of the guns can now reach 10.9km away even stock. The Nicholas also gets increased top speed by 2 knots, 8 seconds faster artillery rotation time, and a 0.3 km shorter spotting range. Finally, the torpedoes of the Nicholas have been improved in speed - 65 knots speed with the upgrade compared to the Clemson's 56, with a very insignificant damage decrease. The torpedo rate of fire has not improved, however. The Nicholas has a fairly tall sillhoulette due to the tower in the front of the vessel, so once you're spotted you should be more careful as a destroyer's armor is basically nonexistent. Otherwise, the Nicholas is an excellent destroyer for its tier and can be very rewarding to play.

Nicholas

A destroyer leader design. Having kept the torpedo armament of her predecessors, the ship was close to cruisers in terms of dimensions and artillery firepower. The ship's powerful propulsion was intended to produce very high speeds.

Historical Info

First sketches were of 'flush deckers' armed with either six 5" guns and two triple Torpedo Tubes, or four 5" guns and four Torpedo Tubes. The ultimate design (February 1919), was a 2,200-ton boat mounting five 5" guns on the centerline with twelve Torpedo Tubes mounted on the wings.



The final design would have provided the following armament:


5-In/51 x5

3-In. AA x2

21-In. TT 4x3

None of these designs ever made it to the production stage.

Special Note:

After an extensive search, the 'class' name of Nicholas produced no results whatsoever in relation to the 1919 Destroyer Leader. As such, one can only ascertain this was a 'placeholder' name. Should the development team ever seek to properly name this particular class, it would be suggested they use 'Huse'.
