Imagine being in the cap zone when a full squad of those things fire off the great wall of torpedos.

 

 

At least those years in the arcade will be spent wisely.

I look forward to dive bombing them back to the dark web for which they came.

They will probably be a very high priority target whenever I'm using a battleship or cruiser (or heck, even a destroyer).

And thankfully it seems even a Shimakaze can reasonably taken on a Kitakami in a gunfight

In any game, computer or table top, if the torpedo cruisers Kitakami and/or Ooi appear on the field, and people know what they are, they will be focus fired.

Such is the potential power of 32 to 40 Japanese 610mm torpedoes.

No different from avoiding HE/Fire spam

No different from avoiding AP spam

No different from "trying" to avoid plane spam to not get deleted on the first 3 pass.

No different from avoiding 12km Radar.

At tier X, in today's power creep meta... Today's hydro meta, today's torp detection meta... The Kitakazie torp hit rate will be the same as every other torp boat... %8 or less, more then that if you're lucky... 

Not even the "wall of skill" torps of the Shima, haven't increased the torp hit to a fever level or a level of worry or panic...

What I am worried about is, will WG pull her out of the store once the TK by torps increases by X percentage... That is what I am thinking about.

I can just imagine this in my Z-52. 

 

'What do you mean, you got a BILLION potential damage?!?"

 

"Well, I had my hydro up, and these three Kitakamis kept trying to torpedo me..."

Have you looked at Kuma in the armor viewer?  :Smile_trollface:  Kitakami and Ooi were Kuma-class CLs that underwent that torpedo heavy refit.  They never made use of the refit in combat, so it was undone for AA.  But anyways, here's Kuma's armor:

13mm for the hull where it's green.

30mm deck in the center.

10mm superstructure.

65mm citadel armor belt.

 

Citadel below:

Still the same 65mm citadel armor belt.  No torpedo bulges, TDS, etc.

Where are the torpedo magazines?  I want to aim at them. 

 

 

What's a Bag of Holding?

Heck, you could shoot a .45 at one of the launchers and probably blow up the whole ship.  No need to get fancy...
