How is Maass (T7) better than T-61 (T6)?

Functionally they seem to me pretty much like the same ship, Maass suffering considerably for being put up a tier.

Looking at the specs I see that Maass has almost 3000 hp more, but the ship eats more damage, being less maneuverable and facing T8-9 ships more often.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but there seems to me no reason to play Maass over T-61.

Not an expert but,

Maass is a beefy destroyer.
If you have 127 mm Gaede, you may have an idea on how Maass plays.

T-61 is a torpedo boat.
She is more or less resembles T-22 playstyle / gameplay.

I am tempted to stream the Maass. Been a while. Would you come to watch?

If you mean coordinating to watch a game at specific time, sadly I doubt I could make that work.

I'm just curious mainly about the assertion that Maass is a gunboat and T-61 is a torpedoboat. They have the same guns and the same torpedoes. Maass has an extra gun, T-61 as a shorter torpedo reload. Given the additional health, it's fair to say that Maass has a little more oomph, but considering it's a tier higher that's only natural, it seems to me that T-61 is just as good a gunboat tier for tier. I have no clue really what exactly a hybrid destroyer is, but I play T-61 primarily as a destroyer hunter or at least a defender against destroyers. It's tailor-made for aggressively taking and holding caps.

Well T-61 is just a better T6 than Maass is a T7.

Having said that, Maass clearly belongs a tier higher.  It has 19% more health, 25% more gun dpm, longer range torps that do more damage with a higher flood chance, better AA, and it's 2 kts faster.

T-61 does have a much shorter torp reload though, and much better concealment, which is why it is such a good ship at its tier.

Good to know, thanks for the summary.
