If it's cheap, there may be a reason for that. Be careful.

I saw Yuzral play this ship on his stream. I don't see anything to recommend its presence in my fleet. You might give it a go if you're feeling brave or bored, but it really needs Aiming Systems Mod 0 to be worth my money.

I was thinking the same thing, Cthulhu.

The Admiral Pack includes a commemorative flag, among other goodies, for $29.99 US dollars.
The economy version can be had for $17.20 and includes the special bonuses for 25 missions, but not the commemorative flag.

It has torpedo firing arcs similar to Mutsu, but without a battleship's level of armor (being only a light cruiser).

Decisions, decisions.
I'll think it over for a while.

I'm just buying it for NavyField nostalgia.

 

I loved the Agano in NavyField even though it was universally hated. As an Agano-class ship, Yahagi has been in my sights since she was first announced.

Yubari at tier 4 is probably a better choice.

And, Yubari is free. (Purchasable for a reasonable amount of coal in the armory.)

The only thing Yahagi has going for it is that it was commanded by Captain Tameichi Hara when it was sunk along with Yamato. Historical value only. It is an oversized DD without smoke and bad torpedo arcs. Cheap, yes but for expert players only (which I am definitely not)!

hmm no permanent camo offered in the pack, that's odd.

All prem ships come with a permanent camouflage.

Only exception I can think of is Dreadnought, and it was announced a perm camo would be awarded for all the next patch.

Even then, Dreadnought technically had the camo IIRC, it just wasn’t visible.

Honestly the thing looks like an ever larger Yubari.  Take that how you will.

I wouldn't turn it down if I ended up getting it.  But I'm not really planning to go out of my way to get her.  Pretty bote though.

(I love my Yubari but the aiming system mod 0 should have just been a temp fix rather than making ANOTHER ship that needed it.)  Let me check.  I might just be insane and imagined it.

Yahagi has Aiming System Mod. 0?

I don't have it, so I don't know.

Probably talking about Katori, the other current ASM0 ship.

 

Still holding out hope that they will sneak that module onto Mikasa at some point...

Oh I could have sworn I just saw it.  Let me dig through the devblogs real quick.  It might have been an idea they were tossing around at some point.

 

Wouldn't be the first time I am wrong :cap_book:

 

I couldn't find it.  Thus I assume I am wrong.  If I was correct.  Feel free to correct me. :cap_like:

I probably kept thinking of it like the Yubari so much that I drew the comparison between the two.

Thanks for reply! No idea if it does/doesn't have it.

Thanks for checking!

Seems like a pretty meh boat. I’ve been spoiled by good torp angles lately though. In general I hate IJN torps as they’re spotted from orbit. I’ll take faster shorter range torps any day of the week.

Without ASM0, it's utterly worthless unless it gets lucky. According to all the testers I spoke with about it today, we should be giving this thing a very hard pass.

 

The only thing it does well is get deleted.

because it's a steaming pile of dung with no business at T5.  Krasny Krym is better.
