Anshan worth the coal?

Just saw the Anshan is now available for coal. Is it worth the price tag? I could see dropping that special commander into it I got several months back and have done nothing with.

I do not like Anshan for the main reason of her very slow turrets....really tough to stay on target in a knife fight.  Seems to be a middle of the road DD at best... I am sure others have gotten more out of her, but she is a regular port queen for me, and I really try to make hard ships work, but Anshan has little to offer me.

Personally, yes. Don't forget it is also one of the only ships (or is it the only?) with a FreeXP (100%) bonus on its camo.

Thanks, I had not noticed that.

Would you pay the coal for a Gnevny, would you pay it for a Fushun?  Do you need a Pan Asian CO trainer?

If so - then yes, it may be worth it.

Personally, I would not - but I got mine from a Christmas Crate.

I bought one, it has the regular torps which is different and the FXP bonus is nice.

Right here.

Anshan is a T6 Gnevny. (Isn’t Gnevny T5 now?)

No, T6. The Podvoisky is T5.

More like a Gnevny with usable torps (8 KM).

She is a OK destroyer and a good trainer for that line. Kind of "poor mans" Gremyashchy. She does well at her tier. Only facing T8 gives her a disadvantage because she has no 5th slot for the stealth module. You get Torpedos with a good range, she has very good guns. You learn a good deal of map reading and positioning because of the slow turrets.

Do you want to know more?

I might be wrong but I got a free trial Anshan 15 days ago and almost sure it had same crap russian 4km torps. It is a Gnevny clone, nothing different but premium status. Plays differently than rest of PanA line so it isn't an optimal trainer either, different skill.

That's wierd but hey, there's the evidence. Gotta make either a memory or a glasses  check up.

Both are fine.  There is a choice of torps, one of them being 4km....probably selected by default.

Decent DD but the traverse is a pain.  If you use every mod there is then it gets almost acceptable.

It's a pretty good OPs DD.  Slow turrets but that's about the only big issue.  Arguably the best guns on a tier VI DD.  Decent speed and usable torpedoes.  81 sec smoke.

For me it's middle-of-the-road as far as tier VI prem DDs go.  T61>Monaghan>Anshan/Aigle>Shinonome/Gallant

No problem on my end, because I don’t play tree PA destroyers.

Just have Chengan, Anshan, Lo Yang, and (the cruiser,) Huanghe.

haha thanks mate, I was starting to get worried about memory loss. I like the thing but not as much as to buy it as a premium while having Gnevny in tech tree. Same playstyle, nothing new.

Tirpitz has one as well.

 

Be aware though that the +100% free xp bonus on the camo is gimped due to the +50% xp that these camos gives out which is fine by itself if you're not planning on running any free xp flags. However if you plan on stacking up multiple econ flags for the purpose of grinding free xp, then do not use the camo because of the +100% free xp bonus because the +50% xp ends up making you lose out more free xp you can gain since free xp is calculated after the final xp total.

 

At the very least you need to equip any camo that gives out +100% xp to get more free xp when stacking up flags.

Save your coal for one of the 9s or 10s imho.

Anshan is nice to run in Aegis, with good Russian guns to citadel the bot cruisers, and usable 8k torps to take out the BBs.  The slow turret traverse is not as big an issue in this operation since you know where all the bots will be coming from, and nothing will surprise you from the off-side.  For randoms you do want MBM2 in upgrade slot 3, and if your captain can afford it EM as well.  That will at least combine to get you 9.4 degrees/sec turret rotation.
