Since the ship is basically a Gearing clone besides the DW torps, are we going to see the fletcher like torps on the Yueyang?  Sure hope we do, I like a more agressive play style...

No. Pan-Asian has DW torps. Can't (and shouldn't) change the "flavor".

It's fine the way it is. If I want Fletcher or Gearing, I have both in port so no problem getting them out.

You don't need the fletcher...  you now have its torps.  And I also know the Yueyang has dw torps.. I also have the Gearing, Z52, and Grozovoi.

Not sure why they "shouldn't", but you are entitled to your opinion...

I agree YueYang should have Chung Mu's DWT as an option like Gearing. But frankly I don't think they are better. Yes, shorter reload is always great. But the shorter range really doesn't work in T10. Fletcher torps actually hurt Gearing more than help her, since Gearing is really sluggish and has difficulty getting out of radar range once spotted.

I think Fletcher/Chung Mu getting Gearing/YueYang torps makes more sense in this radar infested meta.

At first I was ecstatic to get the fletcher torps on the gearing. I hate the reload time. I get a fair amount of blind hits out of the fletch. Almost as soon as the torps reload I throw them unless I’m tracking a target. 

However the Gearing is clumsy in handling and slower. If I want fletcher torps I’ll run the fletcher which I do frequently. I love the long range gearing torps offer. 

Even if YY got Chung Mu dwt I wouldn’t use them because they are dwt. Fletcher gets hits on dds in smoke. YY needs long range to get to the ca and bb lines

So you want Chungmu torp on Yueyang ya? Interesting.

Second, 13.5 is just enough for TX battle. 10.5km torp can hardly hit any opponent running away. 16.5km Gearing torp is the only functional long range torp in game, 13.5 is the little bit short than that but still long enough, I don't think replacing the range advantage with the reload which Z-52 is still better that fletcher.

They shouldnt because if they did there wouldnt be any difference in ships. And you already said it in your own words "you dont need the fletcher... you now have its torps" suggesting he could sell it and only keep the Gearing because with Gearing now having Fletcher torps, it fills that roll so no point in having Fletcher. 

 

 Whats the point of grinding different boats and researching different play styles, captain builds, ship builds...etc if every boat is the same within its class. Variety is a good thing.

The torps are different and the consumables are different.  The flexability in choice in the Gearing should be mirrored in the Yueyang.

Yue Yang sits a little lower in the water when compared to Gearing. This makes Yue Yang a harder target to hit when compared, again, to Gearing. But I can’t answer the maneuverability question as I don’t play Gearing or Yue Yang.
