hi i have been looking around for an updated listing of pros and cons of each nations destroyers so i know what line to go down. right now im T4 on the panasian dd line but feel like its missing something. i enjoy sniping ships with my torps but also want the guns to handle something that comes my way.

The pan Asian DDs are a great line to start out in if you are oooking for a sample of other nations’ DDs. It has American, soviet, British (others?) so if you like a particular PADD then you’ll enjoy the main DD line of that nation. 

Personally, I enjoyed the American DD line as they are excellent cap contesters.

But based on what you have said, you might like the German DD line as they have good torps and high alpha (but generally low DPS) guns. But they aren’t very stealthy (definitely not IJN) but once you get sonar (Tier5?) you can flush out camping DDs from their smoke, which is always enjoyable. 

Good luck!

You miss the fun killing other DD's with torps. The later PA DD are good gunboats too.

Also: KM DD. Good gunboats, ok torpedos (good range, good reload, low damage), they get hydro later on.

If you can do without Torpedos and sailing stealthy: VMF DD.

Super Simplified DD Breakdown.

US Navy:  You are a gunboat who also happens to have some torpedos

Japanese Navy: You are a Torpedoboat, who also happens to have some guns. 

Pan Asia: You're a gunboat who can make a Cruiser, BB's and Carriers have to play cautiously

Russian: Ha, Cruiser without a citadel.

Germany: Jack of all trades, now with added hydro search in upper tiers. 

Again, super simplified.  You've got outliers like the Ognevoi Russian Torpedoboat and Akizuki Japanese Gunboat for instance.  But given your criteria, I'd hazard a guess to say you might want to try the German DD line.  But, take it with a grain of salt.  With the health pool of destroyers it's not advisable to slug it out with anything much bigger than a DD without island cover/smoke support.  You just don't have the longevity to do it.  But the Germans do offer a pretty decent mix of torps and guns

It's funny cause its true... kind of. Their health pool doesn't match nor does their armor, but still.

Khabarovsk has better armor than Minotaur, but for most of the line you're right.

Don't quit at tier 4. Go up to tier 8 where you get that 5th upgrade slot. The concealment really helps all DDs (except Russian DDs).

you have best torp in game, and you also happen to have guns that are somewhat useful only at extremely close ranges

you are torp boat, but somehow your torps are inferior to USN ones

Pan Asia: You're a gunboat who can make a Cruiser, BB's and Carriers have to play cautiously

USN copy-paste with tweaked torps that cannot hit DDs, but are a lot more lethal against all other ships
