The Cat and the Torpedo

This is a bit of an in-joke I'm afraid - it's a greeting card for a wholly Romanian tradition called "Mărțișor" , your basic Spring Festival type thing which is celebrated in Romania on March 1st.

The text in Romanian states simply: "Merry March 1st! (greeting card with traditional spring elements such as white-red ribbon, cat, torpedo and Japanese Akatsuki class destroyer"

It came out of a conversation I had a couple of days ago, about how I should do a greeting card with elements *I* would like to find on a greeting card, rather than use the accepted norms... That being said, the white-red ribbon is traditional and the cat also crops up a lot, so... two out of four, I guess? XD

Oh, and if you're wondering why the Akatsuki, it's because I'm currently trying to work my way through the 6th Season of Ranked Battles over at World of Warships, and the Akatsuki happens to be my favourite ship to do it in.
And, as a bonus, it just so happens that the name "Akatsuki" means "dawn" in Japanese, so it's a perfect fit for a spring greeting card...

Cheers and happy spring!

Actually, if you're in a Shiratsuyu, you have a  Torpedo Reload Booster consumable, which really does reload your torpedo tubes in 5 seconds.  That means you can put 16 torpedoes (the original 8 and another salvo of 8) in the water in 10 seconds...

Couple that with the Shiratsuyu's detection range of just 6.6 kilometers standard (5.8 with the Concealment Expert skill), and what you have there is a stealth torp wall...

Thanks! In fact, I've been working on plenty of stuff, but I can't show any of them yet, because the respective projects are not completed and I'm still under NDA...
