Hi Captains

 

Although I am not a new player, but I am quite new to the DD family. I wonder where the magazines or the detonation point of the DD are. Are the near the water line or they are the primary armament itself? I tried to shoot the torpedo tubes but only module damage, same thing happens on the guns. 

 

Cheers

Generally speaking they are situated in the area in the hull under the guns, shooting the guns/torps themselves just knocks them out/destroys the guns.

If you're on any Cruiser or BB, you should always use HE against DDs... but using AP on a DD vs. another DD I can't say I've tried them yet but HE isn't for just damaging DDs... HE does have a high chance of knocking out an opposing DD's modules which spells a death sentence if you knock out their Engines and Rudders...

sorry, I forgot to mention I am also in a DD

I usually have close quarter battle with other DD (>6km), AP with not over pan, will it?

DD do not have magazine

you can never hit their citadel(for game balance)

but they can be detonated

theoretically, hitting the hull below the guns may cause detonation

 

for HE vs AP,

I suggest HE for DD fights at any range

although DD AP may not overpen DD,

HE have much higher chance of damaging the modules

which is more important than alpha in DD fights

Nope. DDs do have magazines. That's why they can be detonated.

 

Citadel != Magazine. Citadel is a section of a ship which contains HP (which DDs lack). Magazine is a ship module. They are not mutually inclusive, that is to say one can exist without the other.

The only ship class that does not have magazine module is CV.

Then CV need a few. One for ammo and one for fuel.
