  1. It's supposed to be the most ugly ship in the game. Like the Yellow River down the level can still play it I am afraid to feel like two grade. No milk, too little.

  2. 5s more reload time, no heal means 60% or more hp less than KGV, AA is not improved, useless AA consumable. Why waste Free XP or money on this "Duck"
