Looking for a new T10 ship to grind, was wondering what the shimakaze and russian T10 DDs were like. 

I'm closer to the kab, or at least I have the T9 researched because of the split.

DES is the best ship in the game!

Khaba is a unique play style. It is a DD in name only. It plays like a cruiser on speed that doesn’t give a fek.

IJN DDs higher tiers are pretty difficult. What about the US or PA DD line? Overall good gunships with decent concealment and later on good torpedoes.

PA DDs are not popular, due to the deep water torps I think. 

That is a mistake. The torps are invisible til the last minute, reducing the evasion of your target. You can’t torp other DDs however. With 5 - 6 guns, you don’t need to.  From T8 up they are USN DDs with some minor changes. The T9 and T10 have radar which with the demise of smoke as a means of concealment while contesting caps has taken on greater viability. I think they’re great.

Dont bother with the shima. Khab is hands down the best dd in the game.

Its a cruiser in a dd skin.

As a Cruiser Main with also a lot of BB time and being on the receiving end of PADD DWTs, that is 100% true.  You get caught, there really is no evasion, but praying you don't eat many torps.  BBs can maybe get by due to sheer HP values, TDS.  Even then, they'll be hurting badly.  But Cruisers with their low HP pool, poor TDS are in deep sh*t.  Even "nimble" Cruisers won't have time to react.  Multiple DWT hits is essentially a straight up, fatal alpha strike against a Cruiser.  Hindenburg, Zao, I've even seen DMs get walloped by these things.  When it happens it almost always is an outright kill on the Cruiser.

 

Even the Tier VI, VII PADDs can be murderous torp boats (esp. the VI one) if needed.  And some of these PADDs are decent gun DDs also.

popular or not,they are great ships,gadja sadly is second place compared t haida when it comes to dpm and concealment,but their hydro and torps are pretty good.

the tier10 looks like a better gearing.

I have them all and am a DD main. Khab is very strong. Shima is now very user friendly for an experienced IJN DD driver. Yue Yang is also very strong (more than Gearing IMO).

Grozovoi is not bad now that it has been buffed

I am partial to Z-52 though.

Problem  is I can seldom play T10 DDs anymore. Radar makes them unusable when there are a couple of Des Moines and a Moskva/Minotaur/Worcester (i.e. every single match).. Life its now too short for DDs at T10. Forget about trying to cap early.

Most radar cruisers have the radar extender module (I do in mine) so for example Des Moines lasts for 48 seconds (after the recent nerf from 56s). Still way too long for a DD to be able survive if you want to be up front to scout and do damage.

well, I prefer it. It has a fletcher hull, so lower profile. Gearing now can use fletcher torps though with more damage, and YY can only shoot the 13.5k variety. 

But again, DWS land more often, so it's an offset. More often than not, the ships I hit don't even react. 4 seconds is all they get. They have time for an "oh, fudge" then boom.

I find the Republique to be the most comfotable BB , but if you’re looking for a DD, Z-52 is great but Khaba ignores most of the DD complaints in the current meta.
