Akizuki — Japanese Tier VIII destroyer.

One of the most sophisticated destroyers in the Japanese Navy. This ship was specifically designed to provide anti-aircraft defense. Due to her significantly increased dimensions, she was equipped with new dual-purpose main gun mounts that had a very high rate of fire. Among the drawbacks of the ship were the relatively weak torpedo armament and an insufficiently high speed.

10 pt. Capt. on Akizuki; choose IFHE or concealment first??

On my seperate account, concealment is a must have, as this ship is yuuugeeee. make sure to take concealment mod as well. After this go for ifhe.

This boat, or rather this whole sub-branch, has a dire need for nerf hammer to something closer to 15 RPM (i.e. roughly what the guns could practically manage). Either that or move the HE base pen down to 20mm instead of the super HE of 25mm.

Everybody who has to play against them considers them brokenly OP. EVERYBODY.

I'm saying this from trying to grind Tier 8 DDs and having to deal with these abominations too often.

i love pounding other DDs in this. i aint scared of No Kidd, Atlanta, Black, Sim, and even some tier 10 DDs. Can't wait to get the tier 10 of this ship. etc - i rule. I'm in Op Heaven especially when im pounding some poor BB.

Okay I love my Akizuki and Kitakaze, and I think some of the hype around them is a tad overblown... But that 1/4 HE pen that they get for free is a tad ridiculous. Maybe tone it down to 1/5? Keep it a buff but make it more reasonable? *cough*and give them DFAA in exchange for an existing consumable like speed boost or TRB*coughcough*

As far as my Kiev can experience, I expect the current Khabarovsk to not stand a chance against Akizuki 1v1, let alone Kita/Haru.

Akizuki can vision control a Khab easily, not to mention it can HE pen BB plating.

Needs nerf hammer to 1/5 i.e. 20mm HE base bounce threshold. Then it can pen cruiser plating with IFHE except German and US heavies. And won't be so disastrously OP vs battleships.

In terms of disgust, playing against this level of overpowered is like trying to eat a Vomelet off a public bathroom floor.

Maneuvering and acceleration are both weak areas  of this ship. 6.1 km detection  with full conceal and 10 km torps. Arcs similar to a USN, in that they have a lot of travel time. 11 km range with guns? With 14 pt cptn? Play to avoid all that. It’s not as bad as you think.
