Transport ships

General information

The transport ships in the game are universal. We create models based on real vessels that sailed under different flags in the seas and oceans, but they can be used in any fleet. Considering the similarity of many transport ships of the era, and – after all – the secondary role they gameplay – it should be an understandable decision. So when you buy, for example, Hitachi Maru, you can put it in any fleet, not only in Japan.

The Arizona was a record breaking British passenger liner that was the first of the Guion Line’s Atlantic Greyhounds on the Liverpool-Queenstown-New York route. One nautical historian called Arizona “a souped up transatlantic hot rod.”Entering service in 1879, she was the prototype for Atlantic express liners until the Inman Line introduced its twin screw City of New York in 1889. The Arizona type liner is generally considered as unsuccessful because too much was sacrificed for speed. Laid up in 1894 when Guion stopped sailings, Arizona was sold four years later and briefly employed in the Pacific until she was acquired by the US Government for service in the Spanish–American War. As the U.S. Navy’s Hancock she continued trooping through W.W.I. and was finally scrapped in 1926.

It is a fast ship, with great durability, so it will not be easy and quick to sink it. It will definitely be a good choice as a transport ship in the player’s fleet.

The Hitachi Maru was a 6,172 gross ton combined passenger-cargo ship built by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding in Nagasaki, for NYK Lines in 1898. She was requisitioned in 1904 by the Imperial Japanese Army during the Russo-Japanese War.

The greatest advantage of the Hitachi Maru is its speed, which is very high for a transport ship. It will allow you to try to bypass many enemy ships, e.g. during a convoy escort mission.
