I read ship write-ups and watch videos and most seem to suggest how great it is to throw a speed flag onto ship X for that little extra. I personally don't have enough speed flags to throw one onto every ship I take out. Maybe dress it up for special occasions, like a clan battle or impress your division mates, but most ships won't get one on a regular basis. I was wondering what ships players thought really required them. For my IJN DDs, its nice to have one on the Fujin but the Shiratsuyu and Akiziki pretty much require them.

Not much use putting one on a Texas but does even a Kongo get much of a benefit from going a knot or so faster. More speed is always better but what ships does it help the most? Does a Khab really need it?

I reserve my speedflags purely for my Missouri and Iowa, because I find that they benefit the most from these flags and they are too limited to use on other ships.

Arguably, as its a percent increase the ships with the most base speed benefit the most, so Khabas and Henris.

I use them on the Graf Spee and the Okhotnik every game. Really helps those two ships IMHO. I tend to use them on the Tirpitz as well since I use full  signals on her to grind the first win bonus only since her camo gives a big boost to free xp.

Just wondering why are these ships greatly improved by going a couple of knots faster? Chasing down Akizukis? I assumed most responses would be for CAs or DDs. Interesting.

Mostly because I used to just play purely the two and very much relish the speed the Iowas have as a battleship at that tier, being essentially 3knots faster than any other near her tier.

I like using them on ships I feel can really benefit from that increased percentage boost to speed like Gneisenau or Scharnhorst would be good with them.

I do try to save the bulk of those kind of flags for Ranked battles though since you need every advantage you can get in those battles.

I mainly use the speed flags on the Graf Spee. I will put them on US BBs in PvP, but not in PvE. I don't use anything in PvE except the cheapest concealment camo, mainly because I like the look. I save the good camos and flags for my trips into PvP.

I use my speed flags mostly on Hindenberg since she's the slowest tier 10 Cruiser. Brings her speed up to 33.1 kts which is good.

Same here. Whenever the next ranked season ever comes around.
