The boat is a turd lol but makes awesome ambushes. Here is the very first game results on her.

My first game was 60k damage and 2 kills (another DD and a poor UP Myogi who ate 2 of my torps)

Not as flashy as your game, but I am not DD main and only play DDs for fun and not with any dedication.


 

It's a nice ship.  Me love.

I haven't been able to do anything with it yet. As soon as I fire the guns, it's over.

I don't have one, but I haven't seen anything out of them in playing against them that makes me want one.  Seems like crap to me.

It's stealthy enough to sneak up on a smoked DD and dump 12 torps into it.

 

With 12 torps, it can one shot all BBs it sees.

Which is exactly why, when I know one is in game, I vigorously employ WASD until I know where it is located. The ship can be dangerous in the right hands. Quite often though those ambushes are suicide runs - even in the O.

I thought Lenin was a turd when I first got her, took a bit of getting used to but she ended up being ridiculously great and I would guess Okhotnik will be the same

I think it's one weakness is having crap CV players on its team.

 

Because that's literally the only reason I've been losing in it.

She's so long that I imagine the guns and torpedo tubes being replaced by a team of rowers with oars.  I call her Rowboatnik.

Next WG ship is the Russian destroyer Idiotnisk with 80 knot 20km torpedoes, 15 rapid fire 6 inch guns, and a 3km detection range. It's based on a wet dream Stalin once had.

This thing is like driving a limousine. So far, I've managed to ambush a Colorado and a Wyoming and devastating strike both of them with my torps. Kinda difficult to torpedobeat though. I'm currently running an 8 point captain on her.

You did it wrong then. Ambush things that aren't in a positon to shoot back.

It's already in the game. It's called Khabarovsk.

I was mildly concerned the first time my Gremmy encountered one of the "longboats". I ended up not being overly impressed. The Okhotnik got in one decent hit but had trouble dealing with the speed and agility of the Gremmy. The Okhotnik doesn't seem too sturdy either. Still, have to take this with a grain of salt as it was highly likely this was one of the first few games in that ship for that captain.
