World Of Warships Adds Malaysian Ship KD Rahmat


If you’re a ship fan, you probably already play World of Warships. The game gets its Pan-Asian Cruisers event as the first event of the year. And as part of that, alongside several others, the game adds a ship inspired by the Malaysian ship Ex KD Rahmat.

Ex KD (Kapal Diraja) Rahmat has quite a story behind him. Commissioned in 1971, she was ordered from Yarrow Shipbuilders as Hang Jebat. It was initially configured as an anti-submarine warfare frigate. Then in 2000, as part of a routine refit, it was converted into the second training platform for the Royal Malaysian Navy.

It was then decommissioned in 2004 and turned into a museum ship at Lumut in 2011. Its life as a museum ship lasted until 2018, during which time it suffered two leaks – one in 2017 and one another in 2018. At that time, the ship was deemed unsalvageable and scrapped.

It should be noted that the real life Ex KD Rahmat was a frigate. Her World of Warships incarnation, on the other hand, was adapted as the Dido-class cruiser. It was also placed at Tier 6, with higher numbers usually translating into better ships.
