Who says Khab can't Knife fight?

Really? Wiping the floor of the enemy DD's with it is fun! All you need is a commander that has reproductive organs made of stalinium, Comrade!

 

 

Yes, I knew exactly where the Tash was before coming around the corner, but I was unsure of the Fletcher.

 

In all reality, I realize it was an extremely risky dumb move. Had the two DD's been piloted by a competent commander, they would have owned me, bad. But, I had been watching the way they were playing, and I knew that I was likely to succeed before going in.

I'm pretty sure no one said the Khab can't knife fight. The only thing a high tier destroyers fears more than Radar is running into Khab.

Only WG thinks that the Khab can't knife fight. It's the second best knife fighting DD in the game.

Nobody says that, it's just even better at range.

I'm just starting... controversy, lol. 

 

I had quite a few games in Fletcher and Gearing. I was not the best in them, but decent enough, and the sight of a Soviet DD on the enemy team always made my heart sink. Now that I have started playing The line, I am really starting to realize when they are so, awe inspiring.... They are very difficulty, nigh impossible to counter when played by a person who even has a shred of a clue. (Take me for, I am fairly clueless most of the time, lol)

 

I just remember the hype that USN DD's are the king of knife fighting, and that is the reason I went down that line first. Yeah, they are better at knife fighting, under a very limited set of circumstances.

So

Nobody says that, it's just even better at range.

 

This is the question on my mind.  Should I keep AFT on my Khab and get Last Stand with my final two points?.... or should I drop AFT and pick up Survival Expert + Demolition Expert instead?

How many points do you have and how are they allocated now?

 

This is how I have my Khab set up now.

My next two points are going to go into Adrenaline rush.

 

This is the build I am working toward, it is identical on my Udaloi captain.

It has been working out really well for me.

From what I see in game there is almost nothing a Khabarovsk can't do. Like that thing eats my Cruiser HE and laughs since some shells shatter. Even Yamato can't do that.

Can confirm....

 

I got hit by a lucky Yamato salvo at 11km the other day, melted off 16k health.

 

That armor is a double edge sword. You take a lot less HE damage. But... Any AP that does not bounce, sticks and does 33%.

My current build below (at 17 pts).  I include Turret rotation so that I can use this same commander on Lenningrad, Okhotnik, and maybe 1 day the Gremy too.

I might forgo Concealment Expert.

 

It is very nice to be able to disengage an disappear at a reasonable distance.. (Does that even exist for soviet DD's?) Hence the reason I went with the concealment module, rather than the last rudder shift module.

 

I just feel like, Khab really thrives being seen. The 4 points would might be much better spent elsewhere. (I changed that to might, as that is all preference, as to what you like best.) But I do feel the core skills for Khab are BFT, AFT and DE. Without those, you are sacrificing so much damage potential, which is where the ship really shines, is its ability to punish anybody, with very little that can be done in return.

This is the build I have (gold) am working on (red)

The extra HP from SE also increases heal amount, number of heals and speeds increased by SI, and finally BFT for some for fire rate and AA. 

Honestly the worst thing for the khab is battleship AP or a sudden and uncomfortably close cruiser. But a smart Gearing with AP/HE switching can really mess you up.

I don't know Murphy's law usually applies when I fire at a Khabarovsk. Firing HE, I hit the 50mm plates. Firing AP, I hit the 19mm plates and overpen.

Khab brawls with 50mm plating and sheer firepower.

It's so dumb it can do that.

Hm, imo it's still the king of DD knife fights, it's only negative is its ability to dodge torps... however you can take out torp launchers with every shot so that evens out the only negative it had..

KHABAROVSK is owerpowered, can't even kill it with Roon. It armour should be take off even a littlebit. Destroyer is so hard to hit anyway, and when hit there is almost none effect. I hope they read this and fix it to some realism.

Khabs are just ridiculous. They are the best at every aspect of dd play except for using torpedoes. If you are even remotely alone in a Gearing and get close your stupid. Nothing you can do. Sure your guns are faster but they are going to take chunks of your life while you whittle away with your potato guns. Khabs didn't need a rudder shift nerf, they need a turret rotation nerf and possibly take more damage or module loss nerf to even out t10.

I don't even have to watch the video to know that there was a lot of gun fire and not one knife used!  :trollface:

In the real world, up close, don't bring a gun to a knife fight. The odds are the 95% the gun fighter dies before the 5% chance that the knife-wieldier will die in the hospital.
