No real idea, I’ve never done any ship silhouette training!
And I can’t be arsed googling to check any...
My guess as it looks corvette sort of size is a Bathurst class, so HMAS Wollongong?

Hull form looks like a French sloop, but the unshielded gun mounts and single stack are wrong for the Bougainville class.

Beyond that, I had to look it up in Conways, so no comment.

My first thought was something Commonwealth from the general appearance, but I sure couldn't say the class without flipping through a book or two.

I'd say it appears to be a minesweeper based on the davits/cranes on the stern. Fits with the overall apparent size and armament as well. I do agree that it appear to be Commonwealth from the general styling.

It looks like an Indian Navy sloop. Maybe the Hindustan class? Of course that a total WAG that I pulled out of my nether regions. "fraid I don't have time to research it right now.

Looks like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halcyon-class_minesweeper

My bet is on HMS Bramble because of mast layout

As far as I know, the Thai ships are not in the game.

It's a RAN Grimsby. Maybe Yarra (or Swan, Parramatta or Warrego)

It's the HMAS Yarra circa 1936.

Both correct! It is Yarra.

I've always thought it strange Yarra has torpedoes. Why on a 16knot escort? I can't find anything in my limited search that shows torpeodoes on Yarra either. Usually she is list with only 3 x 4inch DP guns and some 20mm AA.

According to Conway's she did not have torpedo capability.

In my DBB game she has torpedoes. Maybe they messed with this class for some reason.

In my stock game she is as yours, a Swan Class with no torpedoes.

Maybe someone with a ship avatar PO'd JWE. I'd go into the editor and fix that.

The RAN website says no torpedos at launch in 1935, and does not mention any ever being added.

Edit - I can't get the image to display. Look here: http://www.navy.gov.au/hmas-yarra-ii

On the other hand, the WW1 'River' Class Torpedo Boat Destroyer Yarra(i) had three 18" tubes.
