What's your best ship for delivering torpedoes to the enemy fleet?

Concealment, lethal torpedoes, a skilled captain, and speed can all be a deadly combination for the recipients of a deadly strike.

Also take into consideration the vessel's specialty skills and perks that make it a fearsome opponent for any ship in its cross hairs.

Don't forget torpedoes can also come from the sky to terrorize the red fleet as well.

When torpedoes need to find their target, which ship in your fleet best gets the job done?

"The one in charge must concern themselves with details. If they do not consider them important, neither will their subordinates." - Hyman Rickover, US Navy

IJN Kitakami. They find the enemy ships, they find the friendly ships, they don't care. :Smile_hiding:

The low tier IJN DDs are the ones I fear most. Sneaky and fast reloads. Kamikaze and Fujin are nasty little buggers.

I really only have IJN DD experience when it comes to Torpedo Delivery, so I am pretty bias.

With that said:

Tier 2: Umikaze
Tier 3: Wakatake
Tier 4: Isokaze
Tier 5: Minekaze
Tier 6: Fubuki
Tier 7: Akatsuki
Tier 8: HSF Harekaze
Tier 9: Yugumo
Tier 10: N/A (Not enough data points for this, but it will likely be the Shimakaze over Harugumo.

Once I start getting good with other ships, this list may eventually change.

funnily enough my best torpedo slinger with over 100 games and above 10% hit ratio is Yubari, which is one cruiser i do love to play when at tier 4 despite all the hate she gets.

Prinz Eugen has 20% hit rate but only 18 games, Tachibana has 40 games with 18% hit rate.  my best torpedo hit rate ship is ARP Ashigara with 33% but only 1 game played lol.

I loved the pre-nerf Shiratsuyu with her smoke and booster...My hit rate in her went way down when having to choose between one or the other, sitting in smoke with another ship spotting with 16 torpedoes waiting was SSOOO fun.  Shima was the same sort of situation before and after when the detection values of her torps took a hit.

Some of those mid-tier IJN DDs are plain awful. 

 

T7 Mahan! Use smoke a lot, and 12 torpedoes. 

t9 Chung Mu, perhaps the best torpedo destroyer there is =)

Kamikaze R  first and foremost.

Believe it or not, Duca D'Aosta as well. Hardly a game goes by where I don't get a hit launching those uber-stealthy torps into a distant choke point. And if they don't hit then the dancing from the red team showgirls provides quite a bit of entertainment.

T4 German DD.  V-170.  79% win-rate and like 65 games.  Pure fun!

T9 Chung Mu as well, I've had some high damage games in that ship.

Shima of course but the torp det. does it no good.

I love my Duca d'Adosta

13km range. I can dump some fish and be back in port eating pasta before they hit anything :)

No love for V-25?  That little speck of a schnellboot is just so much fun to drive... especially in a tier where some people are like "Whaaaa? He fired a torpedo from the bow!?!  I call hacks!"

T2 Umikaze is pure grief. 8Km range @ 44 knots, means you can have lunch, and be in the next cap firing again before the first ones get to the targets.

T5 Kamikaze (R), Fujin, too much fun

i am sure fond of akatsuki, and not really sure why. is it the turrets? the tubes? no idea. it just works.

 

i also use fubuki and leberecht maass to reasonable effect.

 

but after a few launches I always come back to USA and USSR - the guns are just too much fun, even for a tuesday lol.

Kamikaze is hands down the best torpedo delivery system in my port. Though I have been having more fun with T-61 and Gallant, truth be told.

Respects,

Kamikaze R/Kamikaze/Fujin.  The torp reload is too fast and the detection is too strong.  Throw in solid guns by tier and farm away.  The massive sale of  these ships has further exacerbated the problem and the sight of one by me in a game is always considered to be the most dangerous. 

It is far too lethal and should be removed or fixed.  It presently makes the tier 5 bracket ...unfun.

It's surprising to me that the Asashio is not on anyone's list?

I don't have her - but it seems like she is such a purpose-built torpedo ship that someone would speak up for her. Her absence is telling...
