Benson

A rather large ship for her type. As compared to her predecessors, the ship was much better armed owing to more efficient artillery mounts and a successful arrangement of novel quintuple torpedo tubes.

Myōkō
Myōkō

The first Japanese cruiser built after the Washington Naval Treaty of 1922 came into force. Unlike foreign Treaty Cruisers, Myoko’s armor was good enough to withstand artillery strikes from ships of the same type. One of the features of the project was well-developed torpedo protection. Following a series of upgrades, cruisers of this class got a substantially reinforced AA and torpedo armament.

The Battle of The Coral Sea

Each month, WoWS Builds hosts a competition that challenges you to put up big numbers. Two ships are selected, one for Damage, one for Base XP. Score highest in each ship, and you'll get rewarded with some excellent prizes.

This month, we're featuring to ships who's real life counterparts had a big role in the naval war in the Pacific.

Benson is a favorite tech tree destroyer for many thanks to her well balanced approach to destroyer gameplay. Benson gets longer range torpedoes that allows you more complete area denial, plus hard hitting guns for any enemy destroyers pushing the boundaries. Plus, you have that great American smoke screen to back you up in sticky situations.

Myoko is the Damage pick this month, and she can pose a challenge to some players. She does have 10 guns and a decent loadout of torps, so landing shots on target shouldn't be a challenge. As of the start of this competition, the damage record sits at just over 200K – can you top that record this month?
