Rule 5 Sunday: USS McCall

Posted on | November 20, 2022 | 0 Comments

— compiled by Wombat-socho

Named for War of 1812 naval hero Edward McCall, this destroyer was part of the Gridley class, laid down in 1936, launched in 1937, and heavily involved in the Pacific War at Guadalcanal, Eniwetok, Yap, the Battle of the Philippine Sea, and the invasions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, finishing the war with nine battle stars. In the game Azur Lane, she has the Double Torpedo skill, which makes her more like a Sakura Empire (IJN) destroyer than the rest of the Eagle Union (USN) DDs, which tend to be more optimized toward guns. Laconic and prone to daydreaming, McCall is nonetheless my favorite Eagle Union destroyer, because her torpedoes just don’t quit.
