Two ships and a decal for German Navy Day

The history of the modern German Navy goes back to the Reichsflotte that was founded on June 14th, 1848 — 175 years ago. Since then it has gone by many names, but now it’s called Bundesmarine and consists of 65 vessels, 56 aircraft, and 17,000 people. Its anniversary will be celebrated in Wilhelmshafen by opening up frigate Hamburg for the public, as well as concerts and competitions.

Т31 and Z20 Karl Galster Destroyers for Golden Eagles

We’re joining the celebrations too! To commemorate 175 years of the German Navy, two World War II era destroyers will be available for purchase for Golden Eagles.

You’ll be able to get them from June 14th (12:00 GMT) until June 17th (7:00 GMT).


T31 is sturdy and boasts rapid fire main caliber guns, and that’s why it often emerges victorious from small and mid range duels: its shells can easily destroy inner modules of enemy ships and often blow up ammo racks.


Z-20 Karl Galster is quite thin and is quite agile for a destroyer: in AB it can reach a top speed of 86 km/h! Its guns reload quickly, and its 37 mm AA guns are fully automatic, unlike other German ships!

From June 14th (12:00 GMT) until June 19th (7:00 GMT), play 3 battles using German vessels (rank III or higher, with an activity of not less than 70%) to receive the “Emblem of the German Navy Headquarters” decal.

Complete the task in random battles, except for Enduring Confrontation missions and [Assault] mode. Track your progress in the hangar by clicking Nickname → Achievements → Holidays → German Navy Day.
