I'm assuming it's one of the Destroyers but someone asked me that just started playing and I'm not sure. I googled it and found a post from 2015 stating that the Russian DD line was the fastest but is that still true for 2018?

Fastest moving ship in the game is a tie between Khabarovsk (T10) and Minks(T7 tech tree) and Leningrad (T7 premium) at 43 knotts.

With speed flag and engine b o o s t, the aforementioned Soviet destroyers can reach a speed just shy of 49 knots.

Leningrad and Minsk are pretty much the same ship, the only difference really being the torpedoes carried, at 8km and 4km, respectively. Both are the soviet T7 DDs, although the former is a premium ship that I do not believe is currently on sale, while Minsk is a tech tree ship. Both tie the Khabarovsk, the Soviet T10 destroyer, at 43 knots base. With all speed modifiers, their top speed caps at 48.7 knots.

I though for a sec that the tier 5 french cruiser was the fastest. That ship is perfect for chasing down DDs in her tier. It cannot be outrun-ed by any DD in her tier. Great ship too

Emile...tier 5 cruiser. SPEED is her asset. I got her. She is low armor (like so many cruisers)  but if you keep up the speed in her and run around like a nutcase she is very hard to hit.  Good guns. Decent torps. FUN ship. Being a nutcase she clicks with me. :Smile_Default:

Khab, Leningrad, Minsk of course as you've been told.

I am partial to a runner up: the mighty Katori of course!

no complaints from me lol Tiers 4 to 6 are the tiers of death for many reasons. There is just so many great ships with unique personality to choose from and some how it works, balance issues are minimal for those tiers.
