Only lost because a DD crashed mid game and couldnt cap B cap while I killed everything on my flank.  By the time I killed everything I was too far from cap.  I agree she is a very strong boat.

That's one serious heartbreak loss @Destroyer_KuroshioKai; but none the less, well played!

Wow, yeah, that's a hell of a game! Pity your carry wasn't quite hard enough!

Great job, though! :Smile_honoring:

Z-39 has replaced Blyskawica as my favorite tier 7 DD. She was well worth the $$$. I still love Poland's revenge though.

I can't make her work.  I dont think it's the ship, she just doesn't suit me.

It takes a particular style. Focus on her torp reload; counter cap instead of initiating cap contesting; use your guns in support of other DD's and to hit big ships from smoke. Be aware that all German DD's take FULL pens when hit so BB AP hits and doesn't over-pen!

that's ok.  Torpedo boats are not my style.  If my guns aren't blazing, I'm not happy.  This ship is not for me.

Well they're fast if compared to Cruiser guns... :)

Has anyone used IFHE on Z-39? If so, how well does it work out?

http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Armor_thresholds

Z39 can HE pen damage all superstructures in her Tier Category without IFHE. Adding IFHE would take from the 12% Fire chance with no tangible benefit.  http://wiki.wargaming.net/en/Ship:Z-39

While anyone 'could' do this, it is a complete waste of at 4 point Captain skill.

With IFHE, Z-39 can pen all plating on every ship in the game, including Tier 9 battleships.

Question is whether or not it's worth it ... and the answer is no. Her HE DPM, even with IFHE, is simply not high enough to make it worth it. On the other hand, her fire chance is quite nice, and nerfing that wouldn't be a good idea. This is unlike Haida who's HE DPM is best in class (although IFHE is not as good for her as it is on Z-39), while having negligible fire chance.  Generally speaking, the best build for this ship is the same as other German DDs. In fact, I use this build on USN DDs too ... it's really good:

- PT
- AR, LS
- SE, SI
- CE, RPF

Actually, this is a past thing and no longer applicable since the change to BB AP against DDs. But because German DDs tend to be fat, it meant that any shells that managed to fuse themselves risked blowing up inside the ship rather than a few meters beyond it.

But since the recent patch, no German DD can take full pens from any AP higher than 280mm.
