- Commonwealth naval commander, Matilda Kelly
- Brisbane, a Commonwealth light cruiser, representing the royal Australian Navy
Brisbane was a light cruiser project developed after the end of World War II, with more powerful and advanced air defense, and is armed with ten dual-purpose 152-mm main battery guns with a good rate of fire.
- To participate in the adventure, follow Matilda’s path by clicking the different pins on the map
- Upon clicking the pins, you will be presented with buttons to claim the missions that progress the story
- The reward for completing the missions is Pirate Tokens, which can be used in the armory to unlock special content, including Brisbane and 19-point commander, Matilda Kelly, with a unique voiceover
The ship is similar to the cruiser Minotaur, but with significant gameplay differences. Brisbane is equipped with HE shells, class-standard AP shells, and enhanced torpedo armament. The ship's torpedoes are distinguished by a large number in a salvo and a good range.
The ship has weak armour, but low visibility, as well as a "Specialized Repair Teams", which will allow you to restore a significant part of your HP. In addition to the "Specialized Repair Teams", the ship's consumables include "Hydroacoustic Search" and "Surveillance Radar". In addition, the ship has improved engine performance - Brisbane can quickly pick up speed!
During the event, Brisbane will only be available for Pirate Tokens. In one of the future updates, the ship will be permanently added to the Armory for doubloons.
It has been an age since I picked up this, but I'm not gonna lie, this actually sounds pretty fun and interesting so I might have to dust off the commander's hat and get up to the bridge and jump back in.
