So it’s a super-Ognevoi?  It has great torps but the detection kind of blows for a torp boat, mitigated a bit by having a lot more HP and a heal. It’s slower (by a lot) than other VMF DDs but it’s got a very fast rudder. 

Honestly, I wouldn’t feel very comfortable in this boat. 10km still calls for you to get close-ish, and most DDs will spot you first. Smoke-n-shoot with four guns...meeeeh. 

ETA: Smack my head, that detectability is _without_ skills/mods. So detectability’s the same as a Shimikaze. 

Ohhhh. Yikes.

It's a T9 Grozovoi. It's not that crazy really. I guess it is sneaky? But you're 36 knots and only have 2/3 the firepower, so this ship cannot get up to the sorts of things that Grozovoi can.

I was kinda hoping our first T9 (potentially) free exp DD would be something that wasn't Russian...

I mean seriously, it's the only line of DDs I've yet to play other than the Pan-Asian's, mostly because when I think of a DD, I think fast, stealthy, leans towards relying on torpedoes to deal damage but can use guns effectively if needed. So RU DDs don't interest me in the slightest. The recent Grozovoi buffs almost did it, but that's one boat that acts like a good hybrid out of a bunch that don't/can't.

You do realize that this DD is very stealthy right? Its minimum concealment is 5.57km, that's better than Gearing Z52 and Daring

Also the only DDs that rely on torpedoes more than guns to deal damage is the Shimakaze line.

Not to mention Smoke, Engine Boost, and Repair Party access to go with that concealment.  It even edges past Tashkent for HP.

Yes, I saw that it rivals Yuugumo's, Fletcher's, and Jutland's concealment values. It's more of an issue that I don't have a captain to drop into it. I mean, I have one or two Russian 10 pointers lying around, but that's it. Plus I think it looks ugly af, like a lot of the RU ships(though that's just my opinion. Aesthetics are subjective, obviously).

Some of the hybrid DDs lean a little more on torpedoes than guns, but are mostly situationally dependent. Fletcher is the most immediate example I can come up with. Great gunboat platform, but also a great torpedo boat platform and in the current meta, favors leaning on torps a bit more than guns in most situations.

It's nice to have a stealthy DD at tier 9 for soviets, but this does not look impressive to me at all. Sure it has all of the consumables that Grozovoi does along with concealment but neither the gunpower nor the torpedo power are very good, all other DDs have at least one of these going for them.
