Rare to see another Tier 10 dd with the triple tube setup, but with what stats that been given kinda just feels its a better torpedo boat then the shimakaze out right

I think they said the reload is going to be lowered

I haven‘t heard anything of such sort, much less written somewhere. So... *shrug*

OH boy something for the BB brigade to complain about... Its the year of HE/AP bombs/rockets and citadels... No torps/flood DMG allow this year.

This ship is a T7/T8 Destroyer leader. Put it where it belongs, with 8 guns. No worse than Cossack TBH...

Looking at the preliminary stats a base 5 second reload on the US guns, not OP at all even with 8 guns.  The 108 second base torp reload looks strong enough that a gun build might be interesting, or going full torps pretty intense.

The devil is still in the hidden details.  What is her maximum concealment, something tells me it will be around 5.9km judging by my gut.  What is her HP to ton ratio, again I believe its not going to approach Shima levels of agility.  Looks like you might need to give a bunch of broadside to use the guns too, if so you are going to consistently take damage, or be forced to reduce your DPM.  My bet is she turns like a pig compared to US DDs with 3x torp tubes AND 4x gun turrets.  Thats just a lot of real estate needed.

To sum it up I'm interested.  I've got around 44k steel and 250k coal set aside for upcoming potential DDs.

I'd pick that fight in my IJN DDs.  Raw DPM is not everything when it comes to US DD guns.  Now if these were a flatter firing shell it would be something else.

Have to temper things a bit.

Those 8 guns are the derpy 5"/38s so hitting a red DD at 6K plus is problematic.

I'm assuming WG gives it DP main guns (they were pretty iffy IRL but several IJN DDs get DP guns with guns just as iffy) but it has almost no AA as a T10 boat (even for a T7 boat, thats pretty bad AA) so it might as well toggle the AA off permanently. Midways are going to love this boat.
