Z-39 is BEAST

With the release of the Haida, I just thought I would remind everyone not to forget about your Z-39s.  In my opinion, it is still the far superior ship!  The proof is in the pudding:

WTR stats don't seem to be working on Warships today, but the rest of the stats are there.  Check out that win rate.

I've only ever fought them with my Ernst Gaede and agree they are pretty strong, especially in the right hands.

I plan on picking one up when it eventually makes it back on sale.

Yes, for some reason German DDs and I click. I would definitely recommend her. There are other stat sites for WOWs you know.

Hey

Let's keep this in perspective; the Z39 is essentially a Z23 at T7, so it really shouldn't be a big surprise that it's strong.   Given that it's downgraded to T7; why didn't they make the T61, they could have left it like it was, and just slotted it to T7.  Go figure.

Personally I was grinding german dds anyway; naturally i picked up the Z39 when I saw it released. 

They are an easy ship to play because offensively, they can be effective both as gunboat and torp boat - at the same time. Look at your captain build; not a lot of points added to torps or guns. A little improved torp reload, a little extra fire, but those are not *vital* to make this ship effective in the game. 

Defensively who can ask for more than good concealment and deep hitpoints? 

Also, citadel hits on Cleveland are my favourite thing :)

Strong in Operations, too. Torps, torp reload, Hydro and concealment. Guns are slow, but hit hard, especially AP. I am doing stupidly well in it, better than the T-61. No idea why.

I hate this pile of crap with a passion.  Haida is the better ship all day every day, and twice on sunday.

I too do not seem to have much success with the Z39:  my favorite mode of play is operations.  It seem like they have got the bots so fine tuned in recent patches that it is a bit tough  to getorp hits:  It almost seems like the AI “cheats” and starts the target turning the moment you launch.  The guns seem ok to me but not outstanding.  Bots tend to come at you head on so AP is situational.  Also I have noticed that AP tends to overpen nearly all dd’s and most same tier or lower cruisers.  I hit a Dallas yesterday with a perfect 4 hit broadside just slightly above the waterline amidships.  Got 4  overpens and minimal damage.  i was close too, only3 to 4 kms away.  I was contemplating selling it actually and moving the 17 point captain in it back to the Maass where he came from.  It would almost be worth it to give up the premium bonus just to get a descent rof back again.

Does anyone else feel the same way about this ship?

All the noise over T-61 release, having both I much prefer Z-39.  She's a far more balanced boat, and one of my favorite premiums.
