Arashi...seems like an interesting ship, the person in question couldn't tell us anything about her since he's under NDA apparently. Did a quick look at WoWs wiki has her listed as a 3x150mm Kagero with 10km torps

Fitting tool gives her with German 5km Hydro. My guess is the 150mm's will get the KMS treatment since they are German, so possibly built in IFHE as well.

If you ask me, she's what the "D-hull HSF Harekaze" would have been, if such hull existed in the game for the ship.

Anyone that watched the OVA version of the High School Fleet anime knows that at the very end, the cast gets a new Harekaze, mounted with 150mm guns. And Harekaze is pretty much a made-up sister ship of Kagero (for the anime show), so when Arashi was first mentioned in some ST announcement some while ago, that was the first thing that came to my mind.

I reckon that she might have similar quirks and issues as Z-39 for the Germans, since Z-39 is also using 150mm guns: punchy guns that're I'll suited for gun fights, due to a slow reload. She doesn't enjoy the Germans' special HE pen, but she makes up for it with superior concealment and torpedoes. That's my guess... lol. :Smile_hiding:

I ran across this ship in back to back games.   Its a german CV cause it had AP rockets, don't know anything else about it. 

The captain playing it refused to talk about it.

Well looking at the ship fitting tool she has a 5 second reload on her 150mm guns, she gets upgraded kagero torps, not the stock ones, which is interesting and a 13% fire chance. So I reckon she'll very much be like the Z-39, though she appears to have 1 less gun, making her a semi-punchy torp boat able to probably out punch other torp boats but any gunboat DD will eat her alive. She'll also be good for torp scouting/smoke scouting with the 5km German Hydro.

All in All certainly an odd duck of a ship.

Yeah, if it is a supertester playing a test ship they can't say much but CC's have more leeway on what they can say but many of them tend to be quiet on them too.

arashi is absolutely nothing to be excited for, wargaming will probably paste a weeb skin on it and slap a $60 price tag on it.

I'm not so sure about that. Her HE DPM is actually lower than Kagero. She might be able to ambush broadside cruisers and give them a nasty AP surprise though, depending on pen. If nothing else it will be nice to have a mostly gimmick free T8 IJN premium DD that isn't locked behind a collab.

Look, if you guys see a supertester sailing a ship that's a wip or hasn't officially being released to the live server don't expect them to say anything about the ship and rather expect them to reply something along the lines with "im under nda, you can go check it out in the wows wiki instead"
