The Velos is the newest Premium Tier 9 Pan-European (Greek) Destroyer. It has 4x 127mm guns and 1×5 Torpedoes from one Launcher.
Do I recommend the Velos? Yes, if you really enjoy Fletcher, and want a Fletcher were you can move a captain for free on, but keep in mind it is Pan-European. No, if you don’t feel the need to have a Fletcher with not much difference to the Fletcher itself, sure it has better reload on armaments, but in reality, Fletcher has more of those armaments.
Release Date: Available with campaign starting 21st October, and available for doubloon purchase starting January 2023.
Price: Premium – 19,300 Doubloons
I do play this match when I record the video, giving you live commentary and thoughts whilst playing the ship. This is actually a recorded video, and not taken from twitch. 😀
I hope you enjoyed the video, and if did, leave a comment, like or sub. Also, if anyone would like to ask me question about the ship, you can join me on twitch/discord/youtube comments, and if anyone wants to know any of the builds I run for T8, T9 and T10 ships, they are available on discord, link below.

21:23 Summary and Conclusion
The ship is not balanced. It is OP. You managed to land 5 torps. That means it is BROKEN OP.
What a meme lord you are i died from laughter
5 fletchers in game, now waiting for another 170 of them
Patience, my friend. Patience.
Trust the Process. Lmao
Special camo is so awesome. Gonna buy this just for that
It’s a pretty good camo to be fair.
DFAA on gearing is OP, WG wants you to have a useless consumable so guaranteed no CV MM
Freshest ship reviews on YouTube, Big Fan!
Legend, thanks! Big Fan!
If you count how many times Malty said “fletcher” in this vid, he will buy you a Velos when its released
Haha, no I won’t 😛
finally a greek ship to the game now we expect georgios averof
Would be the first armored cruiser
A fletcher with -1 gun and torp tube? It doesn’t sound that great
Like I said in the video, it trades those for better reload, so you don’t really have a DPM disadvantage on guns, it’s mostly just to have a premium fletcher in your port, which isn’t a carbon copy of fletcher. If that’s worth it for you, that’s up to you to decide, I just showcased the ship and what it’s abilities are.
The true question is: How broken is Velos?
Doesn’t look particularly unique, but she doesn’t powercreep the Fletcher at least. We’ve had enough of that.
That camo is crazy awesome. The torps seem pretty stronk. that is a fast reload on high speed hard-enough hitting peeds.
The Torpedo speed is the same as Fletcher, but yeah it’s a super narrow spread.
This is the perfect premium. It’s similar to tech tree ships but there’s a unique twist on it with less guns but faster reload, less torps but faster reload and tighter spread, DFAA and speed boost at the same time, and it’s also historical.
Another great video Malta, keep it going
Thanks a lot! Big Fan!
+ and – on the keyboard 😀
