Hi everybody. So i have Okhotnik since months and love to play it from time to time. Good guns, but awful torpedos.  Considering all that, can anybody responsible of giving the values to ships in detection, gun dmg and else, elaborate how are we supposed to have fun with 4.5km torp range and several ships carrying Hydro and Radar. I thing at least those torps should buff to 5.5km. 

 

Cheers to all.

You said it yourself, she’s a gunship. Use the guns, the torps are for yolo/ambushes. The russian line has ppoor torps until tier 8, so get used to that.

okhotnik rely on the creed "quantity is it's own quality",the number of guns and torpedoes shows that,no DD can spam the same number of torps like okhotnik,and she can quickly reload all of them.

okhotnik most of the time fight enemy DDs first before worrying about slow cruisers,while she is a close range DD,her guns do fine at fighting cruisers at oportunistic times(when the enemy cruiser is attacking another ship for example),her torpedoes are useful,you can quickly close the gap of the concealment ring and torp ring and launch them,or you can ambush DDs inside smoke and other ships,hiding behind islands or attacking their "blind spots"(their guns are not facing you).

like any DD,radar can be a problem,but you can outspot the cruisers,you can outrun the cruisers,you can kite them well since the ship sits low in the water,everything depends on how far are you thinking.

You have to gunboat in Okhotnik. She's a great DD hunter, that high alpha strike is death on DDs. 

Carefully engage in smoke firing whenever the opportunity presents itself. Make sure you are flagged for fires, but be aware that AP on broadside BBs does good damage. 

But in the main you are right. Okhotnik doesn't uptier well.

You do not try to engage the Radar Cruisers, unless you know for sure that you will have an advantage in the fight. Go for the Destroyers, blap them for 3.5k HP every salvo, when you are done you burn Battleships.

Trying to fight your counter is like a Montana hoping to fight an Asashio. It‘s just not going to work.

As others have said, use the guns.  It has good guns, and a LOT of them.  USN DD's only call themselves 'gunboats'.  At its tier, this thing is THE gunboat.  If you catch a US DD out in the open, you can kill it quickly.  And do so because you can't fire over islands like the USN DD's can.  

I have sunk BB's with those torps, but things have to work out just right.  If you see the BB fire, spood beast straight for it.  Before he can reload you unleash the school of death fish at near point blank range and kill him.  Doesn't work if he has a cruiser with him though.

And CV's are your nemesis.  It's a nice long target for torp bombers and has a big (for a DD) turning radius.

I have successes with this ship but i think Tier 7 ships and radared ones complicate thing out too much.

Thank you all for your answers and your time in replying.
