 +<!--''Perth'' has more commander skill options available to her, simply by virtue of the fact she has high explosive shells available to her main battery. Skills such as Expert Loader or Demolition Expert are not wasted on her as they are on her cousin in the Royal Navy cruiser branch, ''[[Leander]]''. In point of fact, Demolition Expert might be the best Tier 4 skill available to ''Perth'' commanders.

?''Perth'' joined the Royal Navy in July of 1936, and served her entire interwar period in the North and South Atlantic. Three years after her commissioning, in July of 1939, she was sold to the Royal Australian Navy, becoming HMAS ''Perth''. Her first wartime station became the West Indies, and she operated in the Caribbean until March of 1940, when she began convoy escort duties in the Indian Ocean. Redeployed to the Mediterranean in late 1940, ''Perth'' operated in support of the Malta convoys, where she received minor damage.+''Perth'' joined the Royal Navy in July 1936, and served her entire inter-war period in the North and South Atlantic.

?Early 1941 saw ''Perth'' engaged in operations in the Aegean Sea, where she escorted convoys bringing reinforcements to Greece. ''Perth'' also participated in the Battle of Cape Matapan in March. Beginning in April of 1941, ''Perth'' continued to support convoys to and from Greece, this time as part of the evacuations. Remaining as part of the naval presence in the Aegean and central Mediterranean, ''Perth'' suffered significant damage from an air attack while engaged in support of Allied forces during the Battle of Crete. She received temporary repairs, then began operations in support of Allied troops in Vichy Syria before being replaced by HMAS ''Hobart'' in July of 1941, sailing for Australia and an extensive refit.+Early 1941 saw ''Perth'' engaged in operations in the Aegean Sea, where she escorted convoys bringing reinforcements to Greece.

 In the resulting Battle of the Sunda Strait, USS ''Houston'' and HMAS ''Perth'', both low on ammunition, attempted to fight their way through the strait while simultaneously firing on the escorts of the invasion force. The action was confused with both ''Houston'' and ''Perth'' being sunk, though not before indirectly causing the loss of several transports to Japanese friendly fire in what may well have been the largest sustained torpedo attack of the war. In the resulting Battle of the Sunda Strait, USS ''Houston'' and HMAS ''Perth'', both low on ammunition, attempted to fight their way through the strait while simultaneously firing on the escorts of the invasion force.

Perth — Commonwealth premium Tier VI cruiser.

This warship was built in the United Kingdom, based on a reworked design of Leander-class cruisers with a modified arrangement of the propulsion unit. She was similar to her prototype in terms of armament, but had a different armor layout. In 1939, the ship was commissioned into the Royal Australian Navy.
