Yūgumo — Japanese Tier IX destroyer.

Developed from the preceding Kagero-class destroyers, the very similar Yūgumo-class was a minor revision featuring new main gun mounts capable of high angle fire, reinforced AA defenses and a streamlined bridge structure.

Yugumo is my goto tier 9 along with her gunboat cousin the Kitakaze.

I have no fear of tier X in this ship.  I rub her with TRB though with the CV change I may go back to using smoke  (hide from aircraft.. kinda sorta.. they know your in the smoke, just can tell where in the smoke..and the moment you leave it.. well yea, trouble..  But all DD's are going through this right now.

She is slightly more nimble then Shimikaze at least in feel.  Really apples and oranges to me.  I find the no smoke option more flexible, and the flexibility of torpedo use inherent in using TRB is pretty strong.

She does the job and really what else is there to say.

As far as I can tell, she's a Kagero with better guns. Be sure to use them. They're good for finishing off low health enemies and you can even gunboat weaker destroyers if you're careful.
