Dealing with Pan Asian Destroyers

Last night it occurred to me that the best way to deal with a Pan Asian Destroyer sitting in smoke is to charge right in there.

Tried it with my Kamikaze last night. Sailed in and torpedoed him. I would not really do this with other DD's because of the fear of there torpedos.

Anyone else been doing this?

This is an approach that could work.

The key will be to eliminate them before you are spotted long enough for the Reds to start firing on you.

It's a more solid choice if you're driving anything but an IJN DD - if you miss with those torps, you're at a significant disadvantage in the resulting gun fight. 

If you try it in another Pan Asian DD, you will have to rely on the gun battle.  If you have close support, and/or a HP advantage it can still be advisable.  But if either of those advantages goes to the red DD, it could be a bad time that doesn't last very long for you.

Deal with them like any other DD in smoke. Torp them. Will you charge the smoke if it's Fletcher or Gearing in it, even if you know they just launched torps? Cuz the high tier PA DDs are basically Fletcher and Gearing.

Edit: Even though T4 ShenYang is a war prize Minekaze, she's got US guns. So charge her if you want.

The next option is just play Akizuki. Now they can't torp you,  and they're going to lose the gunfight badly. 
Akizuki with Concealment Mod and Concealment expert hits 6.1km sans camoflauge, and 5.9km with. They're forced to engage point-blank and if they turn away they'll eat tons of AP damage.
