There used to be no tier III destroyer I liked before. Instead I would take the Storozhevoi with tier III ships in a division. That's changed now though as a while back they gave the Derzki a proper gun range befitting a Russian destroyer, so that's my go to now for tier III.

HMS Vampire.

I prefer  Vampyr looks "scarier":Smile_playing:,  and it is HMAS Vampire with the 1-3x torp  IIRC. She had 2 when she was HMS Vampire

 

The Derski and Wickes were stupid fun too, but this new Vampyr is just almost OP. Too bad Tier III does not show up in missions or campaigns , this would be a goto boat.

My only T3 are the Vampire and Wickes. The Wickes feels a lot more lethal with regard to the number of torpedoes, the Vampire more lethal with regard to what happens when they hit. I like the Vampire guns a lot better.

If anyone says anything other than Vampire or the PA DD they are lying or don't have them yet.

Wickes/Campbeltown. (Both are USN in origin).

No, horrid ship, good torpedoes and nothing else.

Guns that aside for one are facing forward. Facing forward on a DD is always a good thing.

I correct myself. I also have the Phra Ruang, but I haven't played her enough to form an opinion. However, if I had to form one I would say that she is not an ideal ship to contest caps in; the ideal cap contester can torp everything, including (and possibly ESPECIALLY) other destroyers.

A game or two in my Vampire very recently has shown that some PA-DD captains - most likely the newbies - haven't yet got used to the fact that their torpedoes are useless against other destroyers.

To each their own. I for one enjoy her. She's got stealth torp capability, and her guns are just enough to be a bit meddling. Wickes is indeed more powerful, though. I enjoy Vampire, but I haven't played her much yet.

Vamps is a fun ship to play, but I'll take wakatake any day if I have to go T3.  

 

I would uptier Umikaze or v-25 to a T3 div any day of the week over any T3 DD option.

The bad thing about the Vampire is that she only has three torps and both their speed and their reload time are rather glacial.

The good thing is that this teaches you to make your torps count, in terms of both target selection and certainty of attack. After the Vampire, getting into the Wickes feels like sailing a torp-spamming monster.

 

British mainline DDs are going to make battleship drivers scream for nerf changes.
