I am looking forward to the Italian dd, having really enjoyed all 3 of the Regia Marina premiums that have been released so far. All the more so, as it appears to be a quirky little ship. Exxpanding WOWS coverage to further Euro naval traditions is also welcome, so a big willkommen, bienvenuti, Üdvözöljük, or whatever language spoken by the builders, designers, owners, crew and captain of this multinational AustroHungarian battleship Viribus Unitis.

Viribus Unitis means “strength in union” so your welcome to the multinational crew is perfect. Well done.

What'd be really cool is if they had the "national voice" of the Viribus Unitis (and further Austro-Hungarian ships) actually reflect the multinational crew -- with different reports coming in different languages.

This would reflect the historical realities of the navy, where every officer had to be (at least!) quadrilingual.

Wiki: "The Navy's problems were further exacerbated by the ten ethnic groups having more than 5% of the population comprising the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Officers had to speak at least four of the languages found in the Empire. Germans and Czechsgenerally were in signals and engine room duties, Hungarians became gunners, while Croats and Italians were seamen or stokers."

Yahagi has 6 152s with a 10s reload... ?

Omaha can put 6 guns on target in any direction with a 7-sec reload. I guess Yahagi is a bit faster and has better torpedoes, but I'm not seeing a huge draw for that artillery at tier 5.

Maybe if they bring her detection down a bit, you can play her as a big DD, and do some stealth torping. 10 k torps with 20k damage.  It does sound like fun at T5. Going to put her on the watch list.

Comments in another thread say that the torps are also center-line. so it can put out a spread of 8. I guess it's a cruiser for DD captains.

If you factor in CE, the concealment gets down to near 10km.  But then the question I have is whether one should use the current CE benefit of -12% to concealment or the proposed unified CE benefit of -10% across the board. With the current CE benefit, you can get the concealment down to 9.94 km, whereas with the unified CE, it only drops to 10.17 km.  Either way, stealth torping will be effectively impossible, short of launching torps from outside of actual range, but at targets which are closing on your position and will sail into your torps' range.

BTW, there's no mention of whether this is a premium ship or not, though the use of a ship name that's not the class name does seem to lean towards it being a premium ship.

Due to the torpedo location she's going to have to show a lot of broadside to fire her torps.  It's like Yubari.  If she is not stealthed, she will get deleted for trying to use them.

Yubari could definitely use a larger torpedo arc range, as it may be the worst of all the IJN ships.

Would she have Yubari-like laser guns?

watchlist for sure.

Doubtful, because Yubari (and Katori) get the special module on their 140mm guns.  Yahagi has 152mm guns, so it wouldn't apply to those.
