Othotnik free trial

Was just in a game with the Othotnik free trial. In fact, there were four of these ships in the game. I'll probably not spend the money in upgrades for it but I thought I'd take it out for a spin.

 

First, the ship is very skinny. There were several times when a BB should have had me dead to rights but the dispersion caused all of the shells to land around me. Second, the ship is pretty stealthy for a tier V DD at 6.3 km without any upgrades, which allows you to get close to your prey undetected. Unfortunately, you still have those short-range Russian torpedoes, though here they are 4.5 km versus 4 km. However, you have four triple-launchers! Finally, the ship has a bunch of guns and reminds me somewhat of the St. Louis in that respect.

 

I got one kill on a cruiser and a couple of caps with the ship. Another guy was really having fun with those torps and landed quite a few. I ended up on the winning team, placing 4th down from the top. I think that some people are going to like this tier-V ship and if you are collecting Russian-line ships you might consider it. At least, if you get the trail give it a whirl.

Gun Canoe is best canoe.

 

Okhotnik is probably the dumbest ship in the game, and easily one of the most fun.

I haven't played today yet, so I don't know if I would be getting one or not.

I just played my second battle in this ship. In this game there were 5 Okhotniks, mostly on the enemy team. I capped and then went CV hunting as I saw the planes always going back to one spot. Sure enough, there was the enemy CV. Those 4.5 km torpedoes are fine and dandy versus a ship that has no main guns to shoot back at you with. One CV down. Unfortunately, I then got in a dogfight with two of the enemy Okhotniks and came out the worse for it. I did come in 4th on the winning team though.

I have been waiting for this ship to go on sale for awhile. Imagine now that a lot of people have played it,what T5 battles will be like if it goes on sale for around 20 bucks.. Every 1 will stay clear of islands and in the open water to avoid 16 torps in the side. May be the answer to island hugging,,,

The gun canoe? sadly it handles like a bus.

But agree it is a blast to play, especially using AP against broadside cruisers!

I saw one of these a month or so ago, and wanted one ever since. This morning, there was one in my port after playing one game. I felt like a little kid at Christmas time. :cap_like: I immediately took it out and played several battles with it. I used my 10 pt captain from the scenario missions to help her get up to speed. What a blast it is. Can't wait to get one I can keep longer than 3 days.
