Well, if you’re going to buy a ship at some point regardless, go Harekaze now.

But you’re the only one who can decide what you want to do with your hard earned money.

Why do folks like this ship so much? Genuinely curious.

because of its multiple hull/gun choices it has lots of different play styles and setups. It can play like a conventional IJN torpedo boat or a hybrid gunboat. The most common setup has the same turrets as the Akizuki though you only get 3, it makes up for this in being able to get its detection range down to 5.4km, so you can easy outspot anything that can outgun you. and you can outgun everything else. the guns are also dual purpose so you can do a lot of damage to planes and generally not be bothered by CVs

Get the Harekaze! Go hungry for a while if you need to!

Just joking, at the end of the day it is just a pixel ship. Don't buy it if you think it is out of your price range.

What Blauflamme said. The most common setup is basically Akizuki guns on a Kagerou hull, so you get 3x2 100mm guns and 2x4 torpedo launchers. It combines the good points of both ships. The ship is a very good IJN DD captain trainer for that reason, you can train both the main branch and the sub branch with it.

Curious, is the 127mm / 54 good? (Other than only having 3 guns instead of 6.)
Do you also get american rate of fire?

Nope.

You get 4s reload as opposed to the US DD standard of 3.3s. And with only 3 guns your total dps is actually one of the lowest at Tier 8, ever since the IJN 127mm guns got their HE buff. Compared to the 100mm guns, the 127mm/54 option has better turret traverse, better fire chance and decent AP dps. Apart from that there is no reason to take the 127mm/54 over the 100mm guns, especially after the IJN 100mm pen buff.

That is why I have been hoping for a slight rof buff for the 127mm/54 guns on the Harekaze. At least buff it to the USN standard of 3.3s reload.

Aww, they buffed the IJN weaponry but did not buff the USN weaponry. Thank you for the info 🙂

I just got my Akizuki and still cashed strapped for upgrades. Will let her out for a spin in co-op once half-price upgrade is available. Thanks for the advice. 🙂

 

Although I dont have Harakaze yet, I seem to like her armament flexibility. (Unless Graf Spee gets a 2 x 2 380 mm option :Smile_hiding:)

 

Midway guns are really that bad huh. 😞 And I was rooting for the Harakaze with 127 mm / 54. A mix of American guns and Japanese torpedo.

I'm sad, they could have mounted Montana 127 mm and have reload of 4 sec. But I'm sure those turrets are just too big for IJN ships.

Thyaliad's suggestion for the Midway 127 mm 3.3 sec buff really needs to happen. Otherwise, 127 mm / 54 will just rust in storage.

Thanks for the input @LawrenceXVIII and @Thyaliad . Very much appreciate your advice. 👍👍👍 (3 thumbs up)

A pair of "Y-gun" depth charge throwers according to the caption.
