Great stats, but WG pampers you by keeping a balance of those useless never ending smoke machines  vs  all other DD's.....

Yep, the Shenyang is very good.  I am trying all the DD lines for the first time and the Shenyang really impresses at Tier 4.

Wait till you get the Gadjah Mada, a little monster that is worth the grind. I will pick fights with T8 destroyers for the challenge. 

I'm at the ChungMu right now and once you get the Torps the ships starts preforming. Than get the B Hull for a great time.

I love just saying the name GADJAH MADA!!!

Shenyang is a lot of fun, but it lacks the ability to stealth torp which would make it the Tier 4 equivalent of the pre-nerf Gremyaschy. Now it’s “just”a strong contender against Isyaslav and Clemson.  Even Isokaze is one heck of a good ship in the right hands, but now it has 3 predators.

Well, it CAN stealth torp - not sure were your information comes from.

 

Torpedo range (lowest /w upgraded torps) is 6.4km, concealment with CE is 5.7km

 

That's enough to stealth torp in my book.

My apologies - it can barely stealth torp with Concealment Expert.

Isokaze has a 1.7 km stealth torp buffer (7 km torps and 5.3 km detection).  The Gremy almost has a 3 km stealth topping window. 

Besides, my point is that Shenyang is a strong Tier 4 DD. A big stealth topping window would make her stupidly OP.

Before I used Shenyang I watched a Flamu vid where he said bye bye Clemson, or whatever to that effect.  I must concur.  Yet another rare US ship at the top of something has been usurped.  Minekaze with US guns and fast flood causing torps, lol.  The guns alone are enough.

In terms of sheer gunboat potential, and rushing BB's with torps, the Clemson still wins, in fact, the izy is still better than the Shen. But the Shen is the only one of the three that has good guns, and torps that exceed it's detection range. Which makes it the better boat on average as it can more easily influence the game from concealment with it's torps in ways the gunboats can't without islands and dumb enemies.

I wouldn’t say it’s overall better, just better at torping. The Clemson still beats it when contesting caps and pure gun power.

With CE the Sheng Yang ought to be a little Kracken Maker. Once that ship clicks for you turns she into a monster boat even w/o a 10 point cpt.

Just sold mine , got the XP for the next one, considered keeping her, but  after the last 2-3 games the challenge was gone. The last 2 games made me feel like I was cheating, felt so dirty.  :fish_viking:Have not even pointed out my 6 point capt yet, kinda waiting on 10 point somewhere in the Pan line. prolly at that Gagjah boat
