Who said Russian gunboat DDs can't use their torpedoes effectively?

 

Yes, I'm not running comcealment; a full 9.1km detection range. Just wanted to share because this was a silly match but it was also a great one.

1 - rushed a full HP DM.

2 - sank a Harugumo with preemptive torps

3 - rushed a crippled Yamato, all guns pointed at me. Also had an NC's secondaries trained on me.

So, tell us, how did you live? 

A lot of it was luck, but after sinking the Yamato, it was matter of going bow in to the NC to minimize my profile. One of my teammates sank the NC just in time.

I used all 4 repairs I had for the battle. 3 after my initial engagement with the DM, 1 right before goong for the suicide run against the Yamato.

I love the Tashkent. Wish WG would fix the permanent camo and give the multiple color options like all the other Russian permanent camps (from that past event).

Not sure why anyone hasn’t thought of this but I always do my Tashkent’s torpedo build.

Players often underestimate ships, just because something is not the main weapon of that ship doesnt mean it cant hurt you. This happens a lot, with gunboats and some cruisers, players underestimate torps on those ships.

I once saw a healthy JB teammate get within 3km of and give broadside to a dying Hindenburg. Guess what happened. :cap_popcorn:

You should see some of the brutal torpedoes runs I have done in my Kiev.  The Might Mo didn't have a chance.
