Why does the Minsk go 43 knots?

So I looked up all the tier 7 DDs on wikipedia and found something that confused me.

All the DDs top speed matches what wikipedia says. Maas was 1 knot faster however, but Minsk was 3 knots faster. All the other were the same listed speed.

So what is the justification or reasoning for this? Wikipedia happens to be correct for almost all of them but the soviet ships?

Lots of engine power versus the load...

Basically because Wargaming said so to make it fun to play. Remember this is a computer FPS game based on historical ships. It is not an exact simulation.

Speced for AA she good in operation domino with good guns. Sims is better AA boat, but Minsk is also  a good gunboat.

Blyskawica is also supposed to be a good gunboat for Dynamo; but I found it sorely lacking in that respect. I’ve actually been hitting S-botes at longer ranges with Sims, than I did with Blys...

Maybe Sims’ shells are faster...

Minsk is 43 because Balanz Comrade.

It is fast like most of RU DDs.  Pretty fun imo to fly around with speed boost shooting whatever is in sight.   because of the high speed, you can move around the map pretty quickly.

Because she can't go 45kts:cap_haloween:

Well with the ole Seirra Mike flag she tops out just north of 45 knots. Pop the speed boost and you get 48. 

That ironic as the flag should increase drag and slow her downz it’s almost as if it’s a computer game and not realistic

It is weird... that only USSR DDs get this favorable massaging of reality above and beyond other in the name of 'fun' and 'balance'.

Do wish the USN cl had the Shell velocities and laser like trajectory of the Russian cl.
