Description

The G-class, ORP Garland (H37), 1942 is a premium gift rank II British destroyer with a battle rating of 3.7 (AB/RB/SB). It was introduced during Update "New Power" as a reward for Battle Pass: Season I.

HMS Garland is a British-built G-class destroyer loaned to the Polish Navy in 1940, under the designation of ORP Garland. She operated as part of convoys escort almost the entirety of the Second World War and visited most of the war theatres.

She performs very similar to the playstyle of the sister ship already in the regular tree, the destroyer (H89) HMS Grafton. While at the same time, having some pros and cons on her own. Such as the increased variety of secondary armaments that reinforces the support role of this class.

Unfortunately, some drawbacks in mobility are present, as well as reductions in the main armament to increase the auxiliary armament. 

General info

The Garland (H37) appears more aggressive than the escort destroyers Town (L45) and the Hunt (Family), this is thanks to her long and taller hull with a raked type of bow that provides increased sea-worthiness and enhanced cruising speed - at least before armaments refits. The destroyer can be differentiated from the similar G-class (H89) because of the Polish naval ensign with a horizontal bicoloured red and white, located in the stern of the ship. Another way to differentiate between the two is the Garland's light grey hull painting and the olive-green coloured upper decks. The Grafton's hull will be painted black with maroon red upper decks, though these colour schemes might vary in arctic scenarios. Garland's second funnel top is lower, a stern-located 120 mm cannon and one set of quadruple torpedo tubes is also missing.

Knowing these armament layout and visual differences should help to recognise these destroyers since ORP Garland lacks the destroyer vs. destroyer armaments of the HMS Grafton, and HMS Grafton lacks the support armament of the ORP Garland.

Survivability and armour

Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Armament

Primary armament

3 х Turret4.7 inch/45 Mk.XII cannon, СPXVII mounting
Ammunition200 rounds
Vertical guidance-10° / 40°

Provide information about the characteristics of the primary armament. Evaluate their efficacy in battle based on their reload speed, ballistics and the capacity of their shells. Add a link to the main article about the weapon: {{main|Weapon name (calibre)}}. Broadly describe the ammunition available for the primary armament, and provide recommendations on how to use it and which ammunition to choose.

Secondary armament

Turret76 mm/45 QF 3in 20cwt cannon
Ammunition150 rounds
Main article: OQF 3in 20cwt (76 mm)

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. Secondary armaments are defined as weapons chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armaments and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that any anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section. If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

Anti-aircraft armament

4 х Turret20 mm/70 Oerlikon Mk.II autocannon
Ammunition1800 rounds
Belt capacity60 rounds
Fire rate450 shots/min

An important part of the ship's armament responsible for air defence. Anti-aircraft armament is defined by the weapon chosen with the control Select anti-aircraft weapons. Talk about the ship's anti-air cannons and machine guns, the number of guns and their positions, their effective range, and about their overall effectiveness – including against surface targets. If there are no anti-aircraft armaments, remove this section.

Additional armament

Setup 14 x 533 mm Mk.IX wet-heater torpedo
Setup 22 x Y-gun Mk.VII depth charge
Setup 34 x 533 mm Mk.IX wet-heater torpedo
2 x Y-gun Mk.VII depth charge

Describe the available additional armaments of the ship: depth charges, mines, torpedoes. Talk about their positions, available ammunition and launch features such as dead zones of torpedoes. If there is no additional armament, remove this section.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Large medium to short range anti-air firepower
  • Dual-purpose main calibre guns, also with readiness of SAP rounds
  • Large capacity of additional weaponry: 24 depth charges and 8 torpedoes

Cons:

  • Limited firepower with only 3 main calibre guns
  • Inadequate crew size: out-classed when duelling late rank I and rank II destroyers
  • Top speed is more similar to escort destroyers than combat-capable Fleet destroyers.

History

Describe the history of the creation and combat usage of the ship in more detail than in the introduction. If the historical reference turns out to be too long, take it to a separate article, taking a link to the article about the ship and adding a block "/History" (example: https://wiki.warthunder.com/(Ship-name)/History) and add a link to it here using the main template. Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the ship's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable)
