This is one odd gunboat

 

Pantsuharu, just like Mahan and others, is a gun/torp hybrid.

The benefit of such ships is that both guns and torpedoes are well performing, albeit not as good as dedicated ships.

 

I.e. Farragut is better for gunning down targets in it's tier, while Mahan can still kinda do it, but is mostly supposed to utilise her torpedoes, too.

Meanwhile Mutsuki while having decent guns is better off utilising a torpedo-focused playstyle.

I usually go hunt other IJN DD in my hatsuharu like mutsuki and minekaze since her guns do like 600 dmg per hit :trollface:

 

Unless its a BB I don't bother trying lay down the torp carpet. Her top torpedo do like 62 knot but can be seen from like 2 km away so only idiots or people so deep in tunnel vision would get hit by them.

I never thought I'd see the day when this happened, 3 kills and 8 planes shot down in my Hatsuharu, the Catch - not a single torpedo hit their mark. This is one odd gunboat

It's the first IJN DD with a decent gun. I go the other way and totally use my Hatsuharu as gunboat. I have had a match where i did around 40k-50k damage by guns alone. :child:

 

Now i'm just waiting for WG to release Akizuki kai :red_button:
