What are the IJN sailors doing with the guns on the Umikaze and Wakatake? Are they soo slow to traverse because they are physically picking up the guns to turn them? I would be WASD after dropping torps and the guns are all facing the other way and take forever to traverse back. Is Expert Marksman a requirement to unstick the guns from the deck? What are ways you can kite from superior numbers after putting fish in the water, so that you can at least shoot while you run?

XD historically those guns are not power assisted by either electricity nor hydraulic... the crew have to manually turn the gun with unpowered transmission, and too think about it, 120mm is not a small gun if you have to turn them by hand...

 

This is all for the sake of balance, you are not supposed to be able to win a gun fight against a US destroyer of the same tier, as a national favor your primary armament should be your quick loading, hard-hitting torps instead.4

The 120mm/45 guns on those ships have its origins in QF 4.7in mark I and are 100% manually operated.

You don't.  The IJN was historically very bad at making turrets turn and "muh national flavor" means you're going to get it here.

Turret traverse? ?

 

We have guns?????

 

Actually I use them quite a lot in later tiers.

 

For now, order your crew to use pistols when not loading torpedoes
