USS Monaghan (DD-354) was a Farragut class ship (in fact the last of the Farraguts.

It was at Pearl Harbor the day of the attack.

I am excited! Here's a little reason why:

On paper, it's crazy strong compared to the existing T6 DDs.

Way more HP than Farragut

Concealment as good as Fubuki and Shinonome

It has one less gun than Farragut, but those two aspects alone make all the tech tree T6 DDs obsolete.

 

Put SE and CE on it and you get a 16000HP, 6.1km concealment DD with effective guns and torps.

On the one hand, pity it's a near copy-paste job from a ship already in the game. On the other hand, never hurts to have a mid-tier premium DD for a nation that doesn't have one of those.

As for the stats - eh, they're bound to be adjusted before release.

I hope this and T-61 both get tweaked before release.

So, after allowing us to earn Fara both through the tech tree and through last Xmas's event for free, with a permacamo no less, now they want us to pay for it?

 

Anyone else feel like 2017 has been the "year of selling you ships you already got for free, and for outrageous sums of cash as well", for WG?

As a DD main, it does not impress me. Yes, it would be nice to have a mid-tier USN DD, but the stats don't look good. Just 4 guns and short-range torps. I don't know why they can't make a premium USN DD with some firepower. The Sims is limited and so is the Kidd.

It is really strong.

6.4km torps on a 6.1km concealment gunship.

This is in comparison to Farragut, which can only reach 6.6km concealment with the same 6.4km torps.

That and you get up to 16,000HP, which is very good, on a T6 DD.

I really wish we could reduce the gun range. Having 12.5k gun bloom with the 5"/38 really hurts it. Same problem the Sims and Kidd has. Wish I could shorten it to 9-10k.

I'm fine with it. Gives plenty of range to pepper enemies with HE and fires while being comfortably smoked or behind an island.

 

Plus the rof lets that damage stack up. And coupled with the better stealth and HP, she'll more than make up for that lost gun.

Dev blog include camo, so it's 6.3km.

Can't wait to ram a IJN DD in one!

USN DD :cap_win:

T6. :fish_panic:

 

If they ever rolled back the expanded protected MM I'd love this.  I'll pass on a low tier ship that's going to be constantly trying to punch up against Sims and the odd T8 game.

 

In a T8 game it will lose a gunfight badly and doesn't have torps to fall back on. The T8 DDs run the conceal module.

Back in CBT the USN destroyer line was the gun boat line since you didnt have the ability to stealth torp till the benson, at somepoint WG moved all the torps down a tier to how they are today. USN DD mains back then got really good at yolo torping things or using islands to lay traps.

I wanna buy it, but then I remembered how terrible MM is for anything that isn't Tier 4, 7 or 10 and closed my wallet. :(

So many damn Premium  ships coming out.  Almost enough for a tech tree at this point.

With all the DD classes used in WW2 by the USN, WG couldn't come up with a tier 6 premium DD from a class it doesn't already have in-game?   Jeez.  It's getting really annoying to see so many clones of existing classes when there's so much to work with.  I can understand doing it when there isn't any new material (i.e. ship classes) to use.  But there are a LOT of USN DD classes that were used in WW2.

They're understaffed.
