Fubuki — Japanese Tier VI destroyer.

This "special type" destroyer shaped the development for destroyers in all navies of the world. Fubuki’s greater dimensions allowed for a significantly greater firepower, AA artillery and an even more powerful torpedo armament. In terms of speed, however, Fubuki was somewhat inferior to destroyers of preceding classes.

I want to like Fubuki destroyer but I am really bad with it. If someone has a good strategy I would appreciate if he can share it with me. The problem I have with Fubuki is that I feel is difficult to handle, the turning radius is really really long and is very slow compared with other japanese destroyers. According to Wikipedia, japanese class destroyer Fubuki could reach 38 knots, that is not what I am getting in this game.

I should have something posted in May 2019.  I know its a ways off, but I want to be sure about some things.

Fubuki is my favorite ship, and this is as close to a perfect game as I've ever played in it.

I like Fubuki.  
Mostly because I'm a fan of the Kantai Collection anime series in which Fubuki is featured.  :-)

The third torpedo launcher comes in handy, though.  A big ship may need a 6 torpedo salvo to sink it, so one uses the #1 and #2 launchers, while keeping the #3 launcher's torpedoes in reserve for targets of opportunity.  Nine torps from three launchers with three tubes each is nice, and the comparitively longer range of the torpedos allows for attacks from outside of detection range.

Fubuki may not be the fastest, but she gets along well enough. 
She has decent turning capability.
Her turrets rotate slowly, but that is common among IJN DD's.  (Plan accordingly.)
Her consumables are pretty standard fare for DD's, so no surprises.

The more Captain Skills one can provide to Fubuki's Captain, the better she is able to cope with situations.  (Which is true for most ships, eh?)

She's not meant to be a brawler, but she can do some serious damage when played well, and can sink unwary ships "Ninja style".
She can fight in close quarters if she has to, but it is best if one can minimize her exposure to damage.

"Kampai!", Captains.
See you on the virtual seas.  :-)

By god this ship is godawful. It handles like a tank, it's guns are pathetic and it has a choice of torpedoes you can't use because you'll get obliterated by your fatass concealment before you can shoot them, or water mines that take an eternity to get to the enemy.

macktkau2, you also can't play blame New York "This ship is so damn slow. Painful to do anything but point yourself in a straight line" and New Mexico "Dear god this thing is slow....start a game with another ship because there's no point staying in this one."

We use these ship-specific threads to share information about the ship. If you want to learn how to play, ask for help and you'll get it. If you're just angry about the game or want to keep embarrassing yourself, please post in a relevant thread or make a new one.

And no, "I'll complain wherever I want to thanks kid. " isn't an excuse.

You're not a mod. Piss off.

He's not, I am. And while you do have the right to complain, I'm stepping in solely because of that last sentence.
This forum is a place of discussion, not argument

lol I get followed into a different thread by some random and abused for no reason (and get accused of being bad at the game in a ship I posted a kraken in after my first initial impressions) and I'm the one who gets the warning. :crab:

 Fubuki is one of the better mid tier DDs imho. You must not be playing it correctly. I almost never shoot my guns unless it's necessary as decent stealth, triple launchers and 10km torps are it's strengths.

Use the speed flag if you have them, it helps a lot.
