So, other than Kamikaze, what are some Das that are really good for training in with the RN BBs around?  Especially higher tier

 

How is the interaction?  Are their HE shots overpowered vs DDs?  One shots?

Do they dodge tops easily?

depends on if the person playing the ship feels like torps are coming, but torps will hurt the RN BBs real bad

As far as DD's go, faster the better. The glacially slow turrets make it hard to track anything, so suicide rushes with RU dd's are very possible. But the HE is devastating if you get hit, so know where those turrets are before rushing.

This.  The secondaries aren't that punishing and many don't have the skill points for manuals.  Before rushing, always check the turret position, paying special attention to the aft ones.  More often than not, those are the ones that will have the best chance to hit you on a rush.  You can actually outmaneuver the fore turrets rather easily but the captain will have time to rotate his ship and turrets for the aft shot.  Predicting that move and a good turning radius can make all the difference.

I've heard that RN BB are not very good at dealing at direct alpha damage, and don't have very good torp protection.

so I guess stealth torping for IJN DD / USN DD might works pretty well ?

perhaps kagero, Yugumo, Shimakaze, Benson, Fletcher, Gearing would be good choice if your goal is to shut that RN BB down.

keep them within your torp range yet stay far enough from getting detected. Taking away their concealment might be important to counter them.
