Fletcher/Gearing torps unlock

Do the MK16 mod1s  unlock automatically on the Fletcher if I get the Gearing?  I've got enough XP to get the Mk16 mod 1 (10.5km) torps for the Fletcher but we need a DD for CB's & I'm not enjoying the rental Grozovoi's detection range without being able to use camo.  Just looking to save some FXP if possible. 

If it doesn't unlock, I might just bite the bullet & get a Somers rather than the Stalingrad 2nd option, or 3rd option, I  could always get a Daring, but I like the USN DD's so much better as a whole.  Thoughts or opinions?

You have to research everything on the Fletcher before you can research and buy the Gearing.

Negative ghost rider.  As with all ships you need only research and purchase the hull.

It does not unlock once you get the Gearing. If you can, depending on how far you have left to get Gearing, try to grind out enough XP for the upgraded torps on Fletcher. They are a massive upgrade in effectiveness and will likely make the grind a bit easier :D

Oh yeah, research and upgrade those torpedos. They hit harder, go faster, travel farther, and reload faster too. Well worth it to upgrade.
 

Coupled with the right captain skills and slot 6 module, you can get the reload down to 81 seconds.

I did that for awhile but swapped back to the Mark 17's with Torpedo Tubes Mod 3, Torpedo Acceleration, and Torpedo Armament Expertise. Reason for that was the radar land that the Gearing operates in and the rise of the HE spamming cruisers.

Daring will eat any US DD alive... it's a far better ship than any US DD... even the IJN's are better imo.

I wouldn't waste a nickle on any US DD'S.

My legendary Gearing hasn't lost a fight to a Daring yet....

Rpf, plus 5.4 det means I spot and torp him.....

Why would I even try to out gun a Daring?

If you get the Somers instead of the Stalingrad, you deserve nothing good in life.

The Stalingrad is the ship of ships. It has all the awesomeness. Get it, and be that guy.

I have bad Stalingrad envy.

Wrong. You cannot research a ship until you have researched the previous ship and all its upgrades. Thanks for playing.

Nope, you can skip gun upgrades, range upgrades, torpedo upgrades. Can't believe you don't realize this after 20k battles. Wow...

I like gearing torps and torpedo acceleration.  those extra kms really keep you out of radar range and you get screaming fast torps!

Nope.  The mod 16 have 10.5 km range, mod 17 that are the original gearing torps are 16.5km.

I was referring to the Fletcher torpedos there, didn't mean to confuse any thing.

The Mk 16's are the upgrade torpedo for Fletcher, and the stock torpedo for Gearing.

The Mk 17 is the upgraded torpedo for Gearing, but forces a decision for the player. Do you use the harder hitting but shorter ranged Mk 16, or the longer range Mk 17 that doesn't hit as hard (1,433 HP less).

Unlike WoT, the torps dont unlock when getting the Gearing, this is true of tech tree ships in general.

If you need the Gearing, get it first and worry about torps later.

The platform is what your clan needs, the torps are just a small part of the platform.

This is demonstratively false.

Just look at the tech tree, you are free ignore unlocks that do not lead to the next ship, which is typically tied to the hull upgrades.

It is most likely not the best decision, but it can be done.

His clan needs a DD for CB.

Wrong Wrong

But, to put this to bed see proof.  You will see that I never researched the 8" gun module but have progressed through the hulls without it.  Next time take the hint and research before contradiction :D

Oh, and thanks for playing :D

Shame. Some of them are the most OP ships in the game. 

All 3 of my t7 USN dds have higher average damage than your daring.

Yeah... I think you're wrong there vaffu.  I never touched the 419s on the Lion, and I researched the Conqueror.  

I guess, thank you for playing?

And what exactly does that have to do with the price of eggs in Zimbabwe?

How does your gearing fair... yeah thought so.

I wasn't going to reply back because for these guys it's a hometown national pride thingy but your post was just too hilarious.

Ok then lets put it to the test shall we... maybe i'm wrong...  PM me the details.
