So the best HP, ROF, ok concealment and fire chance but it can pump more shells, bit meh maneuverability and torps.

Can I say this is T8 game changer DDs? On paper it feels it can fight.

Ohh also it can stealth fire around 10km and above, out of the box without AFT! Damnnnn....

 

PS: Bit excited posting this, so pardon me. :teethhappy:

We haven't seen how it performs but in general its looks like Khabarovsk lite. I'm not so sure how its smol 100mm guns would be adequate enough to do damage because the HE can only pen 16mm of armor. Against other DDs it will roflstomp them, but against bigger ships with armor its going to struggle because you have to hit the superstructure to do damage.

Nevertheless it's going to be a fun boat for sure :D

Could only pen 16mm armor.... 0 dmg even to BB superstructure.

 

 DD ap still hurt on BB superstructure. but if you wanted fires stick to HE first then just switch to ap once you set fire or two.

wow she can invisifire without AFT time to put on demo on this and make the BB rustle their jimmies. :trollface:

 

yep, with her very low HE and AP shell damage Demolition is the way to go, she will have hard time securing damage without demolition expert on her.

 

but seriously, She suppose to be an AA dd so WG should put AA barrage on her.

lel where did you read it?

 

 

The Akizuki-class were closer in displacement to Yuubari (Akizuki at 3700t and Yuubari at 4100t, full load) than the next heaviest destroyer (Shimakaze at 3300t, full load) as well as the similar design of their funnels.

yeah i was thinking of giving her Manual AA too but i already feel sorry for the current cv players:trollface:, so i will just focus on bullying battleship players with her.

yeah most bb players don't pay attention to the damage the shell do on them, they just panic when someone is shooting them with HE. didn't they know its just bait for them to expose broadside to incoming torpedoes. :D

 

this ship is going to be fun, she might not be stronk as other RU gunship but on her tier she can get match up to lower tier like VI and VII, and lower tier has less fire resistant than higher tier so means more fires. :trollface:

Akizuki's 100mm is supposed to be buffed to be able to penetrate up to 19mm. Instead of the usual "caliber/6 (in mm)" of penetration, she has "caliber/5.xx (in mm)" of penetration in order for her not to be useless against T9/10s which have a standard of 19mm superstructures.

 

(of course, "supposedly" in the leaks)

I'm sure the turret rotation rate will suck. Will wait to see

 

it is a high angle DP Gun that specialize in anti-air and said to be rivaling the USN DP guns in AA performance. If they have bad turret rotation it won't make sense in both historical accuracy and game balance because she should only have a single torpedo tube
