It seems to me like the Benson and Lo Yang are sort of like muscle cars in how they handle.  You can get more out of them if you know what you're doing but all that torque means that you can swing too wide and hit torps you would dodge in a more clunky DD.

 

With the top tier (Jianwei, I think) Chinese being a Fletcher modified, I wonder if it will handle like Fletcher or different.  Will it in fact be more of an expert's bote?  That is the question.

If I understand it correctly, the tier X Pan-Asian DD is an Allen m. Sumner class, which is more like a shorter Gearing. If that's the case then I'd expect it to handle like the Gearing does.

A shorter Gearing might handle better than Gearing and more like Fletcher. Interested to see what this line looks like...

The Yue Yang is slightly more mobile. Here are the stats of the Yue Yang and the Gearing respectively, taken from the their wiki pages:

But just a reminder that the Yue Yang's still in testing and its stats are subject to change.

The Allen M Sumner was built on what's essentially a Fletcher hull; the major difference was 6 inches of beam.  The Gearing added 14 ft of length to the original AMS design for increased fuel.

Which is stupid because a Gearing should turn MUCH better than a Fletcher.

I think it's going to need all the handling it can get.  If the word is correct and it only has the deep torpedoes, other DDs will be rushing towards you without fear.
